Led by Apple’s iPad, tablet sales seen exceeding desktop PCs in 2013

By Sam Oliver

Industry insiders now believe there will be greater consumer demand for the rapidly expanding tablet market, led by Apple’s iPad, than there will be for desktop PCs in 2013.

Global tablet sales are expected by Taiwan-based PC makers to reach 130 million next year, according to DigiTimes. That could be enough to exceed worldwide demand for traditional desktop PCs.

Total worldwide tablet sales in 2011 were said to be 60 million units, with Apple accounting for 40 million of those. Industrywide sales are expected to reach 90 million to 95 million units in 2012, with Apple’s new Retina Display iPad the most popular option among consumers.

Jobs compared the coming market shift to a time in the U.S. automobile industry when most vehicles were trucks, because they were driven by farmers. But as cities rose, cars became more popular, and smaller cars gained features like power steering and automatic transition over time.via Led by Apples iPad, tablet sales seen exceeding desktop PCs in 2013
