Tablet And e-Reader Application Processor Market Outlook

The global tablet and e-reader application processor market size is worth US$ 1.9 Billion in 2022. The market is projected to witness a healthy CAGR of 5% over the forecast period to arrive at a market valuation of US$ 4.1 Billion by 2032. The rapid growth of the market over the upcoming years can be credited to the launch of new tablets with new versions or previous version expansions.

The market for tablet and e-reader application processors is primarily being propelled by the rising demand for electronic items, including tablets and smartphones, owing to the inflating disposable incomes of the global population. For instance, as per the U.S. Census Bureau, the median household income of the regional population in 2021 amounted to USD 70,784, which increased by 1.2% from 2020.

Further, the sales of tablet and e-reader application processors are anticipated to rise owing to surging technological advancements over the course of the forecast period. For instance, in December 2018, Qualcomm announced the development of the Snapdragon 855 mobile system on a chip (SOP) with an aim to enhance the operating system.

The market for tablet and e-reader application processors is projected to progress over the forecast period owing to the rising adoption of navigation applications in automotive applications. The emerging demand for rugged tablets is surging for the GPS navigation application. The tablet equipped with a GPS receiver chipset offers the highest resolution location at rapid speed to Android and Windows OS, thus providing the tablet’s location at the most precise position.

Some of the major products commonly used for navigation applications include Panasonic Toughpad FZ-M1 rugged tablet (Intel Core m5-6Y57 vPro), Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 rugged tablet (Octa-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53), and Getac F110 rugged tablet (Intel Core i7-6600U 2.6GHz). Accelerating demand for rugged tablets from the transportation and automobile sector is predicted to expand the market size of the tablet and e-reader application processor.

The market is projected to witness continued growth over the upcoming years due to the increasing demand for tablets, thus boosting the demand for tablet application processors. Apple and Samsung are the major brands leading the market.
