The shortage of chips has caused the tablet industry to experience difficulties. This is evident from the latest Canalys report regarding the number of tablet shipments in the third quarter of 2021.
In the report, it is shown that the number of tablets shipped between July to September 2021 decreased by 15% compared to the same quarter last year.
It was also stated that 37.7 million tablets were successfully shipped in Q3 2021, whereas in the same quarter last year, 44.3 million tablets were successfully shipped.
However, the same as the previous quarter, Apple still dominates the tablet market in the third quarter of this year with a market share of 40.4 percent, where Apple managed to ship 15.2 million units of its tablet.
Canalys also said that for now, the largest tablet sales are still in North America, followed by Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America. There was an increase of 23% in the Asia Pacific region.
