Sales of tablet PCs in India grew by 7 per cent to 0.91 million units during the January-March period of the current year as compared to the last quarter of 2015, says a report.

DataWind led the market with its share at 34.2 per cent share, followed by Samsung (21 per cent), Pantel (BSNL’s partner) (20 per cent), Micromax (10 per cent) and Lenovo (4 per cent), research firm CMR said in its report.

“Increased demand for smartphones with larger screen sizes has resulted in a marginal growth of the tablets market. Also, consumers are demanding tablets under Rs 5,000 price band and there are wafer-thin margin for vendors,” CMR Analyst Tanvi Sharma said.

Unlike smartphones, tablets are not easily up-gradable and this is their major drawback, she added.

Suneet Singh Tuli, President and CEO of DataWind, said the company has delivered a record quantity of tablets in the quarter due to heavy demand from customers.
