The UK tablet audience will grow significantly through 2017, according to an eMarketer report, ‘UK Tablet Users: 2013 Forecast and Comparative Estimates’. As newer, lower-priced tablet models become available and the market matures, the UK will see demographic shifts in uptake.

 The largest single group of users between now and 2017 will be 25- to 34-year-olds, with 4 million members this year and 6.6 million by the end of the forecast period

eMarketer expects that more children under the age of 12 will use tablets than teens between 2013 and 2017. And this year, for the first time, women will outnumber men on tablets. 

If estimates are to be believed there will be 9.95 million female and 9.75 million male tablet users in the UK in 2013, equivalent to 50.5% and 49.5% of tablet users, respectively.
