The Global Rugged Tablet Market size is projected to reach USD XX billion by 2028. The research study provides an estimate on the size of the market and its various segments such as type (fully rugged tablets, semi-rugged tablets, and ultra-rugged tablets), application (energy, manufacturing, construction, transportation & distribution public safety retail medical government), and region (North America Latin America Europe Asia Pacific Middle East & Africa).
A rugged tablet is a type of mobile computing device which has the ability to handle adverse conditions. They are manufactured with an extra protective case, and therefore they can endure most common environmental hazards such as shocks, drops, extreme temperatures, or dust. Rugged tablets also have higher IP ratings than regular consumer electronics devices. For example, some models are waterproof up to 12 feet (about three meters). In addition, these gadgets usually feature larger batteries for longer use in areas without a power supply and better quality screens so that it's easier to see what’s displayed on them under direct sunlight.
On the basis of Type, the global rugged tablet market is segmented into fully rugged tablets, semi-rugged tablets, and ultra-rugged tablets.
Fully rugged tablets are the most powerful type of rugged tablet. They combine high performance and long battery life with tough, durable exteriors that can withstand multiple drops from low heights without damage to internal components or cosmetic damage to the exterior case. Fully rugged tablets often include features that make them ideal for use outdoors. They may have bright, sunlight-readable screens and can be equipped with satellite GPS or GLONASS receivers to improve the accuracy of location information when the tablet is used in remote areas where there is no clear view of visible stars at night. Some fully rugged models also come standard with a barcode scanner as these scanners frequently scan outside on forklifts or backhoes and get covered in mud, grease, dirt, etc., putting it out of commission until cleaned off.
The semi-rugged tablets are ruggedized and designed for field operations that require a certain degree of durability. They can easily withstand heavy usage, usually in temperatures ranging from -20°C (-40 °F) to 50°C (120 °F), high humidity environments, shock exposure up to falls from height, or being submerged underwater. Semi-rugged devices typically provide protection against vibration/shocks due to transportation or using it within an industry where the device is likely to be dropped frequently. They may offer IP54 protection against dust ingress but are far less water-resistant than fully rugged models.
Ultra-rugged tablets have no limitations on how they get used – they can be dropped from up to four feet (120 cm) onto concrete without incurring any damage whatsoever. The key feature that distinguishes ultra-rugged devices from fully or semi-rugged options is their ability to resist very high pressure and temperature extremes for short periods of time as well as to have excellent resistance to vibrational shocks when in use. As a result of this, the devices are far more expensive and therefore not suitable for every application. Many ultra-rugged tablets can be used in underwater conditions when fully submersed according to IP67 standards.
On the basis of Application, the global rugged tablet market is segmented into Energy, Manufacturing, Construction, Transportation & Distribution, Public Safety, Retail, and Medical.
Rugged tablets are used in the energy sector for a variety of purposes. They include Asset Management, Mapping, and surveying of site boundaries, pipelines, network assets, etc. for a more efficient workflow and accuracy in reporting. Inspections - visual inspections are easier with portable tablets than when using traditional bulky laptops or paper-based maps and images. This saves time on-site while performing the inspection as well as reduces any errors that may occur during data entry later on due to incorrect manual input/recording by field staff.
Rugged tablets are used in the manufacturing sector to enable collaboration between employees. Workers can use handheld devices on factory floors and complete work-related tasks such as completing inventory requests, scanning product barcodes, and more. This enables manufacturing workers to complete tasks such as approving, verifying, or deny a request in real-time. The data is stored centrally and can be accessed by managers, supervisors, or any other authorized user.
Rugged tablets are used for managing the life cycle of construction projects/EPC, including project scheduling and cost management. It also enables collaboration between different teams working on a single project, which is often required in large-scale infrastructure projects with long durations. This helps to reduce delays and save time & money by streamlining processes across functions such as engineering design, procurement supply chain management, etc.
Rugged tablets are used in the Transportation & Distribution sector to increase efficiency, productivity and provide an enhanced user experience. Rugged devices help users complete their tasks with ease while on the go or at remote locations. These devices offer features such as a touch screen that ensures intuitive interaction of data through a finger swipe instead of using a stylus pen which reduces errors during operation. They also have a shockproof feature ensuring they remain intact and can bear falls from a height without breaking down completely.
Rugged tablets are a perfect choice for Public Safety. Whether it is related to disaster management, emergency response, or any other task, these devices can be of great help in providing critical information and organization data required for responding effectively. Rugged tablets are designed to provide maximum portability and performance so that users can always rely on them for their tasks related to Public Safety.
Rugged tablets are used in the Retail sector to enable field workers to carry out a number of tasks like performing inventory management and sales transactions, keeping track of products levels on shelves or displays, receiving customer complaints/queries, etc. The rugged tablet's ability to withstand harsh conditions makes it well suited for use in warehouses where they can be carried around while scanning barcodes without damaging them. Rugged tablets also come equipped with technology such as GPS that allows retailers to keep tabs on shipments and deliveries so that orders are fulfilled quickly.
Rugged tablets used in the medical sector are able to perform a variety of tasks at any time, which is leading towards an increase in their demand. Rugged tablets have fast processing speeds along with high-quality cameras and sensors that make them perfect for doctors who need to be on call 24/hrs per day. These devices can also withstand drops from tall heights without breaking or getting damaged. This is helping the medical sector to reach out to a new customer base.
On the basis of Region, the global rugged tablet market is segmented into North America. Latin America and Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa. In 2019, North America held the largest share in terms of revenue owing to a surge in demand for rugged tablets from various government agencies such as law enforcement and defense departments due to their high-end security features which are required by these customers to keep themselves updated with latest technologies while working under uncertain situations or conditions that may cause damage to any device not compatible with the extreme weather condition/environment, etc. Moreover, factors like the rising demand for smartphones among the local population also has led to smart devices penetration at an exponential rate leading consumers to switch towards using mobile phones instead of traditional laptops thus driving up sales of handheld consumer electronics devices including battery-operated handheld, ruggedized consumer devices, etc. The above-mentioned factors have increased the demand from both commercial and industrial applications across all regions thereby increasing sales of the Rugged Tablets market in North America as well as the Asia Pacific region which is projected to record growth at a CAGR of around 12% over the forecast period 2017-2028.
The key growth factors of the market are the Rising demand for security and safety in logistics. Increasing investments in manufacturing, mining, oil & gas sectors and rising need for smart monitoring solutions across all industry verticals. Growing use cases in the retail sector such as store kiosks, inventory management systems, etc., to enable customers with robust devices that can be connected wirelessly to a back-end system using GPRS or Wi-Fi connection is also anticipated to boost future growth opportunities.
