Apple Grabs 20% of U.S. Consumer Tech Revenues in 2012
In the fourth quarter of 2012, Apple accounted for an astonishing 20 percent of consumer electronics sales in the United States. According to data published by the NPD Group, the top 5 consumer electronics categories in 2012 were notebook computers, flat-panel TVs, smartphones, tablets and desktop computers, with flat-panel TVs being the only category in which Apple does not hold a strong position. The long-rumoured Apple television set could change that and make Apple an even more dominant force in the consumer electronics industry.
Apple's biggest rival Samsung was able to increase its share of total sales to 9.3 percent, overtaking HP to become the second largest consumer electronics vendor in the U.S.
