Table - US Tablet Gamers, 2011-2017

Tablets are commonly used around the home, and the larger screens they offer make them ideal for leisure activities like playing games, accessing social networks and watching videos. Tablet adoption drives content consumption, and growth will slow significantly for all US tablet content audiences between 2013 and 2014.

US tablet gamers will be the largest tablet content audience included in our forecast. Three-quarters of tablet users will play games regularly on such a device. eMarketer estimates that between 2013 and 2017, the number of tablet gamers will rise from 96.1 million to 143.0 million. Percentage gains will come in at 49.2% this year and will remain in the double-digits through 2015. Read the rest at eMarketer.
