Rugged Tablet Market to Grow through 2024

Rugged Tablet Trends

If you’ve been hearing more and more about Rugged Tablets and Ruggedized Technology lately, you’re not alone. A new market study reports that the Rugged Tablet market is growing by leaps and bounds, and shows no signs of stopping.

According to the study, a rugged tablet or other piece of ruggedized technology is something that has been constructed to stand up to extreme stresses such as water, impact, dust, debris, vibrations, and even extreme temperatures. And it’s not just the selection of tough components that makes it a rugged tablet – it’s also their layout and design within the structure, to optimize for fanless cooling and protection from damage. Estone Technology tablets check all of these boxes.

According to the report, the rugged tablet market is one of the fastest growing vertical industries around today, and is dominated not just by a couple of large players, but also many smaller firms that exist in specialty markets. The overall market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.81% worldwide from 2016-2021, especially in North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region.

The report makes reference to three different types of Rugged Tablets – Fully Rugged Tablets, Semi-Rugged Tablets, and Ultra-Rugged Tablets, but what are the differences? Return later this week as we explore the differences in rugged tablet types in our Tech Blog.
