As Apple Insider reports, Wall Street analyst Gene Munster, of Piper Jaffray, sees strong growth for iiPad sales over the next couple of years, to go alongside Apple’s continued iPhone-led growth.
In particular, Munster predicts that iPad sales will grow by 39% in 2012 and 35% in 2013 – climbing to 68 million in 2013.
I didn’t title this as a ‘crazy iPad numbers’ post, because this estimate seems fairly conservative to me. We’ve seen recent rumors that Apple may sell up to 20 million iPads in the quarter ending at the end of September, which would leave them with a very good chance of selling 50 million this year. So 68 million two years from now doesn’t seem difficult, at least given the current state of the tabloid market.
