PH tablet market slows down in Q1, down 26.6% annually

According to research firm IDC, the Philippine tablet market both declined 26.6% year over year (YoY) and 46.7% quarter over quarter in 1Q23.

“It has been two years since quarterly tablet shipments have dropped below 200,000 units, a pattern concurrent to the Philippines smartphone market which hit a 3-year low in the same quarter,” said Angela Medez, client devices senior market analyst at IDC Philippines.
