Apple iPad to dominate tablet market for the next decade

The Apple iPad is to fight off competition from Google's Android to dominate the tablet market for the next decade

Apple is to continue its run of dominance in the tablet market with the iPad set to remain atop the tablet sales charts for the next decade, new calculations have suggested.

Figures compiled by Charlie Wolf, an analyst at Needham have claimed that Apple’s share of the tablet market will drop by less than 20 per cent up to the year 2020 as the influx of Android tablets fail to make a dent on the Cupertino crafted device.

"Future tablets are more likely to steal share from one another than from the iPad," said Wolf. "The tablet market has been inundated with new models… All of them have been greeted with a yawn and lacklustre sales."

As well as offering a sleek design and friendly user interface with the iPad Wolf cites Apple’s expansive App Store as a key contributor to its success in the tablet market.

"In the case of tablets, the only thing that matters - that turns what's otherwise a slab into a versatile device - are the apps. The applications available on the tablets introduced this year number at best in the hundreds. In comparison, more than 100,000 applications are available on the iPad."
