The global wearable technology market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. Wearable technology is an advanced technological solution used in electronic devices, or gadgets, that can be comfortably worn on the body to track real-time biometric information. These devices can also be embedded into the clothing or implanted in the user’s body. Some of the commonly used devices integrated with wearable technology include smartwatches, head-mounted displays, smart jewelry, implantable devices and fitness trackers that enable the wearer to track pulse rate, heart rate, steps and sleep hours. These gadgets are hands-free and use microprocessors and sensors to receive and track information in real-time. Global Wearable Technology Market Trends:
Significant growth in the healthcare industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, increasing consumer preference for sleek and compact health and fitness devices is providing a thrust to the market growth. As the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues to spread across the globe, there has been a significant increase in the requirement for wearable devices in the healthcare centers. They are used for monitoring the patients under intensive care and as prompt warning systems for the virus infection. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the integration of connected devices with the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual reality (VR), are acting as other growth-inducing factors. Product manufacturers are also developing next-generation displays and miniaturized sensors, which are used in head-mounted displays for high-end gaming and virtual and mixed reality experiences. Other factors, including rising expenditure capacities of the consumers, along with the widespread adoption of wearable devices among professional athletes and recreational fitness enthusiasts, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global wearable technology market to grow at a CAGR of around 16% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
