New sales numbers have been rolling in for the global sales numbers of Samsung tablets in 2013, and it appears that the Korean company hit its self-imposed goal of 40 million units.
At an analyst's meeting this past Nov., Samsung told those gathered to hear projections that it hoped to hit a sales number of 40 million tablets this year. According to company insiders speaking with FNNEWS in Korea, a total of 12 million slates were sold in the fourth quarter of the year, and when added with the previous quarters – 9.1 million, 8.4 million and 10.5 million respectively – the company did indeed hit its goal.
While 40 million is a fantastic number, it seems Samsung has even bigger goals for 2014 and is aiming to hit 100 million tablets sold by the end of the year. With all of the rumors right now about the number of new tablets the company will introduce in the first few weeks of the year, and one of them even already passing through FCC approval, it appears it won't be wasting any time in getting that ball rolling.
Is the market big enough to sustain this many tablets? That remains to be seen as sales grew by 49 percent this year, but can the market absorb 60 million more units from one company let alone all of the other contenders? We'll find out around this time next year.
