Market Scenario

Wearable technology has evolved dramatically from wristwatches to fitness bands in recent years. This has resulted in a drastic increase in the ownership of wearable technology components or wearables in the UK, the US, South Korea, and China among other countries. The market for wearable technology components is yet to expand and is currently dominated by health and activity tracking devices. Although, the scope of this market has grown beyond health and wellness, wearables are expected to be utilized for diverse purposes in the near future due to innovation, industry developments, and the increasing number of use cases.

The latest advances in mobile networks have been one of the major factors contributing to the growth of the wearable technology component market.  Also, the demand of wearable devices in sectors like infotainment, telemedicine, navigation (cycling and running), and others is likely to fuel the market. For instance, various fitness gadgets like Fitbit can be linked to satellites to facilitate navigation, while the Apple Watch can be used to check-in to hotels and make contactless payments.
