With worldwide tablet sales down, Bak USA moving forward
Undeterred by recent data that suggests that tablet sales are down from a year ago, Buffalo-based Bak USA LLC is staying the course to achieve its goals of providing high-quality American-made devices.
A recent article in the Boston Business Journal said that demand for tablet computers is continuing to plunge. That’s according to data released Wednesday from Framingham, Mass.-based research firm International Data Corp.
The worldwide tablet market declined 7 percent year over year in the second quarter of 2015 with shipments totaling 44.7 million units, International Data Corp. reported.

Marked by little hardware innovation and limited vendor portfolio updates, the market also declined 3.9 percent compared to the first quarter of 2015, the report noted.
“Beyond the decline, we’re seeing a profound shift in the vendor landscape as the top two vendors, Apple(Nasdaq: AAPL) and Samsung, lose share in the overall market,” said Jean Philippe Bouchard, International Data’s research director for tablets.
Despite a continued decline for its iPad product line, Apple maintained its lead in the worldwide tablet market, shipping 10.9 million units in the second quarter, IDC reported.
Samsung held its No. 2 position in the market with 7.6 million units shipped and 17 percent market share in the second quarter. Lenovo maintained its third position with 2.5 million units and nearly 6 percent market share.
