iWork gains in market share, ready to compete with Office

January 23, 2006

Office Showdown
ZD Net has written an article concerning Apple’s iWork competing with Microsoft’s Office. iWork has supposedly stolen the number two spot of the total market share of work applications.

Corel has slipped with a market share of only 1.6%, while iWork has a whopping 2.7%. Meanwhile, Microsoft still owns most of the market with 95% market share.

What surprises me most of all, is the fact that iWork has this kind of market share, with no spreadsheet application, and pretty basic tools and functions. I believe that Apple will have to make a rather big update to iWork in 2007, possibly becoming a suite that will be good enough to replace Microsoft Office for every Mac owner.
