Based on Digitimes Research's statistics, tablet shipments worldwide totaled 45.96 million units in the fourth quarter of 2017. The better-than-expected performance was driven by strong consumer spending in the high season, which benefited tablet brands and white-box vendors with sequential shipment growth.
The coronavirus outbreak has disrupted production and weakened consumer confidence, with all ICT sectors bracing for major declines in shipments. Digitimes Research has conducted analyses on three mobile device sectors, namely notebooks, smartphones and tablets in the wake of the outbreak.
