We thus discover that the penetration rate of tablets on the world market should increase by 177% in 3 years, and thus reach 13% by 2015. Connected TVs should, for their part, benefit from a penetration rate of 9% in 2015 (+ 35.7% in 3 years), while smartphones should reach the record figure of 71.5% penetration (+ 50% in 3 years).

In the ranking of countries with the best adoption rate of new technologies in 2012, we find Norway (38.8%), followed by France, which reached 35.7% of penetration that year. A figure that could almost double since ZenithOptimedia forecasts a penetration rate of new equipment of 60.8% in France by 2015.

The Netherlands, Sweden, Canada and Denmark respectively take 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th places in the ranking.
