World shipment of PCs, tablets, cell phones to be 2.5 bn in 2015: Gartner

Global shipments of devices, including PCs, tablets and mobile phones, are expected to grow 3.9 per cent to 2.5 billion units this year, research firm Gartner said on Monday.

The number of devices shipped globally is expected to grow from 2.37 billion in 2014 to about 2.5 billion this year and further to 2.57 billion in 2016, Gartner said in a statement.

According to its estimates, worldwide tablet sales will reach 233 million units in 2015, an 8 per cent increase from 2014 as demand for tablets continues to be slow this year.

After a troubled year in 2014, global tablet market is not returning to the levels of growth seen in the last four years, Gartner said in a statement.
