Consumer Desktop Adoption Declines 30% Since 2009

New consumer research from Parks Associates finds a continued decline in the adoption rate for desktop computers. The report reveals that since 2009, nearly one third of U.S. broadband households have abandoned desktops as a platform. Only 6% of U.S. broadband households rely exclusively on desktops, while an additional 6% of households use only a combination of desktops and tablets.

"Desktop adoption has declined from a peak of 91% down to 61% of broadband households, and it will not recover, as just 12% of households bought a desktop in 2015. In its place, tablet adoption has moved upwards, reaching 72% at the start of 2016," said Barbara Kraus, Director of Research, Parks Associates. "The adoption rate of tablets surpassed desktops in 2015. Moreover, the gap between laptop and tablet adoption is narrowing."
