NPD predicts that the Apple iPad mini will sell 22 million more units than the full sized Apple iPad in 2013
1.3 million units from 7.4 million units. Meanwhile, demand in the 7-to-7.9-inch screen sector, which includes the iPad mini, rose from 12 million to 14 million monthly. Demand for the 10.1 inch glass used on some Android tablets rose by a small amount last month. All of this fits in with the earlier report that LG Display has seen a sharp drop in its production of full-sized 9.7 inch Apple iPad screens while demand rose slightly for the 7.9 inch panel used by the smaller Apple iPad mini. The drop has nothing to do with poor overall sales of Apple's tablet, but shows the repositioning of demand to the smaller screened model.
According to DisplaySearch, total tablet panel sales will hit 254 million in 2013, up from 160 million in 2012. Of that total, screens between 5 and 8.9 inches should make up 60% of demand. And with Apple continuing to offer the iPad mini at a premium price of $329, the report says that we could see Android manufacturers start to raise prices from the current level of around $200-$250 toward the iPad mini's $329.
