DUBLIN, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/t5npd6/phablets_and) has announced the addition of the "Phablets and Superphones Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth and Forecast, 2012 - 2018" report to their offering.
At the outset, smartphones were equipped with a small screen size, ranging between 2.8 inches and 3.5 inches. This made it difficult to perform various functions such as navigating documents, surfing the Internet, watching videos, and gaming among others. Superphones are smartphones with the screen size ranging between 4 inches and 5 inches, and are large enough to serve the aforementioned purposes. After the introduction of tablet PCs in the market, these devices became rapidly popular due to their ease of usage, and processing capability comparative that of a personal computer. However, due to the relatively larger size of these gadgets, they offered low mobility. Phablets are devices with screen size ranging between that of a tablet PC and a smartphone, and have powerful processors. They can function as both a smartphone as well as a tablet PC.
The demand for phablets and superphones has been increasing globally due to the growing adoption of these devices on account of their dual functionality (as a tablet and as a smartphone). Android operating system dominates both the phablets and superphones market globally, contributing to 82% and 87% market share in volume sales respectively. North America has been dominating the global market in terms of total volume sales; however, Asia Pacific is expected to surpass North America and lead the market due to growing demand from emerging economies such as India, China, and Korea. One of the major reasons for the growing demand for phablets and superphones in Asia Pacific is the dense population in this region coupled with the corresponding rise in disposable incomes. The decreasing retail prices of these products are also expected to be a driver for market growth.
