ABI Research builds and maintains quarterly shipment forecasts for the current calendar year, in addition to annual forecasts for the upcoming 5 years. Forecasts are based on the analyst's understanding of vendor and market trends, including seasonality.
Quarterly shipments are estimated for the most recent quarter using reported vendor data, in addition to analyst estimates for vendors that do not report. Any differences between early estimates in this market data and the actual reported figures are "trued up" in the next release of ABI Research's market data Media Tablets and eReaders (MD-MCE-167).
