11:10 EDTBKSWorldwide tablet growth expected to slow to 7.2% in 2014, IDC says
The worldwide tablet market is expected to see a massive deceleration in 2014 with year-over-year growth slowing to 7.2%, down from 52.5% in 2013, according to a new forecast from International Data Corporation (IDC). At the core of this slowdown is the expectation that 2014 will represent the first full year of decline in Apple iPad shipments. Both the iPad and the overall market slowdown do not come as a surprise as device lifecycles for tablets have continued to lengthen, increasingly resembling those of PCs more than smartphones. "The tablet market continues to be impacted by a few major trends happening in relevant markets," said Ryan Reith, Program Director with IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Device Trackers. "In the early stages of the tablet market, device lifecycles were expected to resemble those of smartphones, with replacement occurring every 2-3 years. What has played out instead is that many tablet owners are holding onto their devices for more than 3 years and in some instances more than 4 years. We believe the two major drivers for longer than expected tablet lifecycles are legacy software support for older products, especially within iOS, and the increased use of smartphones for a variety of computing tasks." Publicly traded companies in the space include Samsung (SSNLF), Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG), Amazon.com (AMZN) and Barnes & Noble (BKS). Reference Link
10:53 EDTMONGMO seed makers limit launches as China slow on approvals, Reuters says
Seed companies like Syngenta (SYT), Dow AgroSciences (DOW) and Bayer (BAYRY) are altering their plans for new product launches as China has taken longer than usual to approve new GMO crops, says Reuters. Grain traders Cargill and Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) have already sued Syngenta, claiming the seed company misrepresented how long it would take to win Chinese approval for the seeds, added Reuters. Monsanto (MON) is another company in the seed business. Reference Link
