This report covers the overall market opportunity for clamshell notebooks deployed to support enterprise and government line-of-business (LoB) applications, including market sizing and forecasts for rugged, business, and consumer-grade devices. The report segments the market opportunity for devices by region, industry, and application environments. It also provides splits by level of ruggedization as well as an analysis of investment trends by target industry and applications. Finally, it includes detailed vendor analysis, including vendor shares.
In recent years, the enterprise notebook market has undergone a considerable transformation that has led to a protracted period of soft demand, budget shifts toward alternative mobile solutions and initiatives, and a faster replacement and upgrade cycle for deployed devices. Without a meaningful upgrade catalyst-such as the XP EOL driver that affected enterprise shipments in 2013 and 2014-we expect that the market will remain soft over the next several years. While enterprises have largely ignored Windows 8, we expect that Windows 10 will perform better. Beginning in 2016, we anticipate that enterprise adoption of Windows 10 will scale and that adoption will follow a similar-and potentially steeper-curve when compared to Windows 7. For specialty LoB solutions such as rugged notebooks used in public safety, however, we expect Windows 10 adoption to lag the overall market.
Beyond Windows, opportunities for other operating systems such as Mac and Android have been increasing, particularly as both Apple and Google expand their enterprise-specific solutions. Demand MacBooks has risen significantly, and enterprise IT powerhouses such as IBM have provided greater support. While predictions of the demise of the notebook have been largely overblown, much of the market at this point remains centered on existing installed bases and refreshes. We predict that this trend will continue into the foreseeable future. Nevertheless, the form factor is far from dead and continues to evolve, particularly through two-in-one devices like Microsoft's Surface, which has garnered positive reviews and growing demand in LoB applications.
From a rugged standpoint, the market is dynamic and largely mixed. Performance by market leader Panasonic was especially weak in the first half of 2015, particularly in North America. Stronger performances by Dell and Getac have compensated for some of this lag. Nonetheless, while VDC initially expected 2015 to be flat compared to 2014, we now believe that the market will contract by X to X%. In part, we attribute this softness to the rise in adoption of tablets for applications that were previously supported by rugged notebooks. Moreover, budget pressures in target government sectors also contribute to the weaker-than-expected demand.
