New Delhi: Rising number of people on the move, preference for a lighter device and better affordability are expected to drive an over 100 per cent growth in tablet sales in the country to 3.84 million this fiscal, says industry body MAIT.

Tablet sales in India, that is counted among the leading markets for sale of tablets and smartphones globally, stood at 1.90 million in 2012-13 fiscal, data provided by IT hardware industry body Manufacturers Association of Information Technology (MAIT) shows.

According to MAIT's annual industry performance review, conducted by market research firm IMRB International, tablets are eating into sales of desktops, notebooks and netbooks.

The 2012-13 fiscal has been the year for the tablet PC with consumers preferring it over PC as replacement, MAIT President J V Ramamurthy said.

The combination of basic functioning of a PC coupled with affordability is turning the tide in its favour, he added.
