CyberMedia Research (CMR) released a quarterly analysis of the tablet market in India and Q3 results revealed healthy growth across all price segments. Sales of 5G tablets rose 61% quarter-on-quarter, sales of Wi-Fi tablets grew 41% over the same period, while 4G tablets “only” jumped 9%.

Samsung, Lenovo and Apple are the undisputed leaders in the market, with the top 3 companies selling three out of every four tablets in the last quarter.

According to CMR analysts, the gain in shipments of 5G tablets is driven by the onset of the 5G era in India, and the growth is in line with the trends seen in the smartphone market. However, the best-selling devices from Samsung, Lenovo and Apple were predominantly Wi-Fi-only affordable models.

The Galaxy Tab A8 and Tab A7 Lite were the best-selling Samsung devices. Half of Lenovo sales were of the Tab M8 (HD) models, with and without LTE capabilities. Apple mostly sold the Wi-Fi version of the iPad 9th gen, which is the 10.2 (2021) model.

CMR analysts predict that consumer and business demand for hybrid work will be the main driver towards record growth of 10-15% in 2022. Manufacturers rely on attractive offers and aggressive discounts, which is easier for the larger manufacturers such as Samsung and Lenovo, allowing them to maintain their top positions.
