    Does "has gone untapped" mean "has not been developed?"

    Context:

    The report’s findings, released Monday, also reveal that health devices have been targeted toward healthy and fitness conscious individuals or patients suffering from chronic conditions who need to be constantly monitored. However, a third market segment dubbed “Information Seekers” has gone untapped. These people are relatively healthy, but could use a mobile device and the health apps that run on them as an incentive to manage a health-related challenge.

    Yes, that section of the market has not been developed/exploited.
