Adoption of Android Operating System in Rugged Tablets fuels the growth of Global Rugged Tablet Market:

The adoption of rugged tablets is increasing in several industries, such as automotive and mining, due to their durability, reliability, and higher performance in harsh environments. Rugged tablets are designed to endure extreme temperatures, dust, water, shock, and vibration, making them ideal for construction, utility, manufacturing, mining, and other industries. In construction, rugged tablets can be used for various site tasks, such as viewing blueprints, tracking materials and inventory, and managing projects. Rugged tablets can be used in manufacturing facilities to monitor production lines, control equipment, and collect data. Further, several mining players are using rugged tablets: for instance, in November 2019, Mining equipment, technology, and services (METS) provider IMDEX selected Panasonic's Android and Windows Toughbook devices as the company's preferred tablet hardware. Several utility companies are deploying rugged tablets to smoothen operations. For instance, in September 2023, Thames Water, the UK's largest private utility company, chose the ZX10 fully rugged Android tablet that Getac manufactured. ZX10's fully rugged tablet, combined with the detachable keyboard and rotating hand strap, will enable Thames Water's field engineers to take a proactive approach to asset management and customer support, using intelligent technologies to deliver more all-important first-time fixes. Thus, such adoption is expected to become a future trend in several industries.

The duties include establishing and maintaining public healthcare facilities, parks and recreation, community housing welfare, public transportation, and educational institutions. State and local governments will need specific devices, tools, and software to accomplish their missions efficiently. A rugged tablet is a crucial gadget that can simplify the process of monitoring and administering community initiatives. Infrastructure construction, maintenance and repairs, asset management, fleet management, code compliance, and inspection, training and education, public safety operations, public service and utility diagnostics and management, public health clinics, military manufacturing, GIS surveying, public transportation, and parking enforcement are a few of the critical public service sectors that can significantly benefit from the use of rugged tablets by state and local governments. Thus, several governments are investing in the rugged tablet. For example, Dell developed the British Army using the Latitude 7212 rugged extreme tablet. Government investment in rugged tablets creates lucrative opportunities for the rugged tablet market growth.

China to Dominate Global Rugged Tablet Market in North America:

China is the world's largest manufacturing hub. As per the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), in the first half of 2022, China's manufacturing sector reported 28.8% of the country's GDP, which increased by 1.4% from 2021. According to the State Council Information Office of China (SCIO), in 2022, industrial production hit USD 6 trillion (40.2 trillion yuan), and the manufacturing sector's output reached USD 4.98 trillion (33.5 trillion yuan), ranking first globally. It was seen that the manufacturing investment increased by 10.4% in the first half of 2022 compared to 2021. In addition, according to the China Machinery Industry Federation, in the first half of 2021, sales revenue of the machinery industry reached USD 1.87 trillion, up by 5.44% year-on-year. Rugged tablets overcome various technical difficulties and improve the flow of data and information inside and outside the factory, increasing productivity and reducing errors. Thus, the growing manufacturing and industrial sectors in China will boost the rugged tablet market share in the country during the forecast period.
