India’s third largest manufacturer Simmtronics Semiconductors has bagged Tenpercent market share in the Indian tablet space in the third quarter (July-September) 2013, according to Cyber Media Research India Quarterly Tablet PC Market Review.
According to Tarun Pathak, Analyst, CMR Telecoms Practice said, “The market is expected to pick up towards the end of the year, once Tablet PC vendors are through with their BIS certifications. This is also expected to lead to some market consolidation. Only serious players with a long term vision are likely to remain committed to this category of devices. As far as technological trends are concerned, the 3G Tablets market will continue to grow and Android will remain the dominant OS, though it is expected to lose some share to the Windows and iOS platforms, once Windows 8.1 OS-based Tablet devices launch in India”
