Table - French Tablet Users, 2012-2017

Apple was the clear leader in the tablet market during Q4 2013, in terms of sales value, though Samsung maintained first place in terms of volume, with 1.8 million units sold in 2013.

In France’s PC market, Hewlett-Packard maintained a comfortable lead, but shipments were essentially flat. Lenovo was the only manufacturer to see growth in this segment in 2013.

The number of tablet users in France rose less rapidly than the shipments tracked by IDC—yet still climbed by roughly 40%, eMarketer estimates. We expect 19.5 million residents to use a tablet at least monthly this year, equating to 46.0% of internet users and nearly 30% of the population. Read the rest at eMarketer.
