Q1 2017 saw an 8.5% decline in worldwide tablet shipments, according to analysts from IDC. 36.2 million units were shipped globally, compared with 39.6 million a year ago. Four out of top 5 vendors saw a decrease in shipments. The exception is Huawei, which managed to raise its shipments 31.7% from 2 million in Q1 2016 to 2.7 million 12 months later.
Apple stays on top for the period with 8.9 million shipped tablets, ahead of Samsung with 6 million. The Cupertino company saw a sharper decline than its Korean rival, though.
Huawei is third ahead of Amazon and Lenovo.
IDC expects detachable tablets (those that go with first-party keyboards to grow going forward), while slate tablets should continue to lose ground.
