Mobile Computer Market Worth $3.3 Billion by 2029

Mobile Computer Market by Device Type (Key-based, Full-touch PDA-based, Rugged Tablet, and Software), Portability Type (Handheld, Wearable, Vehicle Mounted Computer), and End-use Industry (Retail, Warehouse, E-Commerce)—Global Forecast to 2029

Meticulous Research®—a leading global market research company, published a research report titled, Mobile Computer Market by Device Type (Key-based, Full-touch PDA-based, Rugged Tablet, and Software), Portability Type (Handheld, Wearable, Vehicle Mounted Computer), and End-use Industry (Retail, Warehouse, E-Commerce)—Global Forecast to 2029’.

According to this latest publication from Meticulous Research®, the global mobile computer market is expected to reach $3.3 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period 2022–2029. Manual data capture and associated errors were a concern in the past, resulting in significant time and capital losses. Traditional data capture and entry methods have been shown to have an error rate as high as 4% without additional verification steps.

The rising need to eliminate manual data capture and entry errors, growing government initiatives for the use of AIDC technology, and growing demand for mobile computing in warehouses and distribution centers are the major factors driving the demand for mobile computers. However, the security concerns related to the data captured by mobile computers is the major concern of the end-use industries that is retraining the growth of this market. On the other hand, the COVID-19 influenced the diversified inclusion of mobile computers in the healthcare sector, thus, offering great opportunities for the market stakeholders. However, reliable network connectivity is the major challenge reducing the industry growth in the under-developed regions of the world.

The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the demand for mobile computers across various end-use industries. The mandatory social distancing, face masks, and hand gloves influenced the healthcare industry's demand for rugged mobile computers in 2020 and 2021. During the pandemic, mobility became the top priority of healthcare facility providers. Mobile computers were highly demanded to keep safe contact with the patients. Mobile devices such as Zebra Technologies’ TC52-HC handheld computer offer a solution for busy drive-through testing sites. The TC52-HC, the company’s third-generation healthcare mobility device, resembles a typical smartphone but offers plenty of unique features to make COVID-19 testing sites more accurate and efficient.

Considering the growth of the mobile computers market, major players are increasing their market presence with expansion, investment, and technological upgradation. For instance, in March 2022, Zebra Technologies Corporation showcased its first all-in-one Android-based wearable computer, an RFID sled, and AMR, all designed to help reduce worker strain. WS50 Android wearable computer is half the size of traditional wearables and includes a small display, WiFi, and an imager or camera, eliminating the need for multiple devices supporting hands-free workflows, such as picking, sorting, loading, and putting away. The WS50 supports task management and communication in warehouse, manufacturing, and retail environments with powerful data capture capabilities and an integrated speaker and microphone. With the option of three different wearable styles, including the back of the hand, wrist, or, on the fingers, the ergonomic WS50 wearable computer provides users with the flexibility they need that’s right for the job.

The mobile computers market is segmented based on device type, portability type, end-use industry, and geography. This study also evaluates industry competitors and analyzes the market based on countries.

Based on device type, the mobile computer market is segmented into key-based mobile computers, full-touch PDA-based mobile computers, rugged tablets, and software. In 2022, the full-touch PDA-based mobile computer segment is expected to account for the largest share of the mobile computers market. These mobile computer offers benefits such as more screen space for the same overall mobile computer size, greater ability to customize or add keyboards and add multiple keyboards, which provides the use of both optimized alpha and numeric keyboards. Further, it is estimated that the same segment will grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period.

Based on portability type, the mobile computers market is segmented into handheld computers, wearable computers, and vehicle-mounted computers. In 2022, the handheld computers segment is expected to account for the largest share of the mobile computers market. The main advantage of a handheld computer is that it makes information accessible on-the-go. In a warehouse, order pickers can get up-to-minute information at any time. With a handheld computer, there is no paperwork to fill out and less possibility of human errors, leading to incorrectly picked or packed orders. Also, handheld computers are used for accurately on-the-spot data collection.

Based on end-use industry, the mobile computers market is segmented into transportation, manufacturing, banking & finance, retail, healthcare & life sciences, warehouse & logistics, e-commerce, and other end-use industries (government, hospitality, fleet management, and food & beverage). In 2022, the warehouse & logistics segment is estimated to account for the largest market share due to the growing adoption of mobile computers in its daily operations. However, the healthcare segment is slated to become the fastest growing segment during the forecast period. Mobile devices help doctors and nurses by allowing them to keep accurate records of patients and their prescriptions. The errors which could be caused by handwritten notes are minimized by digitized documents.

Based on geography, the mobile computers market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. In 2022, Asia-Pacific is estimated to account for the largest market share due to the large adoption of mobile computers in regional industries such as healthcare, retail, e-commerce, and manufacturing. The Asia-Pacific region is slated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growing market of e-commerce, manufacturing, and other end-use industries in countries such as China, India, South Korea, Singapore, and Japan is driving the adoption of mobile computers.
