1. Android Tops Tablet And 2-In-1 Market

The top operating system on tablets and 2-in-1s in 2015 is expected to be Android, according to IDC.

The Android OS will take 66 percent of the market share, but will face a 10 percent decline in shipments year over year from 2014. In 2019, Android is expected to continue declining and will drop to take 56.6 percent market share.

The Android tablet ecosystem's struggles come from the operating system's lack of appeal for the commercial market and long device replacement cycles. However, Android's 2-in-1 portfolio is gaining traction, according to IDC, because of the devices' lower price points.

A slew of popular Android tablets have led the market in 2015 already, including the Samsung Galaxy S 8.4, Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 and Google Nexus 9.
