Lenovo Becomes Leading Tablet Company in India With 21% Market Share: CMR

CMR India today released its Tablet PC Market Review report for the second half of 2017, and in the report, the firm highlighted that Lenovo is now the leading tablet company in India with a market share of 21%, followed by Samsung and Datawind. Also, during the period, manufacturers shipped a record 1.8 million units, registering a growth of 28%. It is also reported that the rise of Lenovo is due to strong B2B sales in the second half of the year. Lenovo witnessed 114% during the period, which is followed by Samsung with 39% rise in shipments. Sadly, Datawind’ shipments decreased by 35%.


“2H CY2017 witnessed a surge in B2B sales where Government was a key buyer. In terms of vertical, Education remained leading contributor. This half year witnessed the growth of tablet adoption in financial services sector” stated Narinder Kumar, Lead Analyst, CyberMedia Research.

Analysing the market trends, CMR said that Lenovo’s Tab 3 7 was the fastest moving model with 163% sequential growth in its shipments. This time around, Acer forayed into the top vendors list, thanks to its deal with Gujarat government for education segment. Acer One 7 M77GHG was another most selling tablet model during the second half of last year.


The report also said that 4G became leading network technology trend, while 3G and 2G tablets witnessed a decline in terms of market share. “Shipments of 4G tablets improved by 51% in 2H CY2017. Lenovo shipped almost half of 4G tablets in 2H CY2017,” said CMR India in the report.

In addition, it said that tablets priced between Rs 5,000 and Rs 10,000 were the major contributors with 47% market share witnessing 118% sequential growth accredited to the B2B business of Lenovo and Acer. However, the scenario is not similar to tablets priced below Rs 5,000 as the market witnessed 35% decline during the period when compared to the previous half year. Shipments of Rs 20,000 to Rs 30,000 grew doubled fold on its small base due to improved sales of Apple.

I’m looking to buy one. Don’t know which one to choose. Already have one iPad (My Father uses for Official Purpose) & BlackBerry PlayBook (My Brother uses for Entertainment Purpose). Now I want to have an Android One for myself (For a mix of Educational & Entertainment Purpose). Really have no idea about Tablets.

Any Suggestions? Budget Below 10k.

Go for Lenovo YogaTab 3 (8″ Tab with 4G support) with 2GB RAM from flipkart. One in Amazon is having just 1GB RAM version. It supports Jio SIM for data. Another option is Alcatel A3 — 10″ Tab with 2GB RAM and under 10k. It supports Jio VoLTE as well.

Isn’t Mi Max 3 an Upcoming Phablet rather than a Tablet? Please do Correct me if I’m Wrong.

Well Thank You very much for the Suggestion though. 🙂
