Posted by Steve Stark on April 15th, 2021
The report "Wearable Technology Market by Product (Wristwear, Headwear, Footwear, Fashion & Jewelry, Bodywear), Type (Smart Textile, Non-Textile), Application (Consumer Electronics, Healthcare, Enterprise & Industrial), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2026", size is projected to grow from USD 116.2 billion in 2021 to USD 265.4 billion by 2026; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 18.0% from 2021 to 2026. The key factors contributing to the growth of the wearable technology market include consumer preference for sophisticated gadgets, increasing growth prospects of next-generation displays in wearable devices, and the growing popularity of IoT and connected devices. However, the shorter life cycle of the electronics market is the key restraint for the growth of the wearable technology market. Conversely, the adoption of wearables in multiple application areas and multi-featured and hybrid application mobile devices provide new opportunities for the growth of the wearable technology market. New application areas, such as medical surgery, are being found in wearable technology. Wearable devices are also used as internables/implantables. Internables or implantables are the advanced wearable technology used in medical applications. Internables or implantables are in the form of sensors that can be fitted into the human body to observe various health parameters.
Wristwear to hold the largest market share during the forecast period
Wearable technology market is broadly segmented into products such as wristwear, headwear and eyewear, footwear, fashion & jewelry, bodywear, and others. The wearable technology market for wristwear is expected to be valued at USD 77.9 billion in 2021, while headwear is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 30.0% between 2021 and 2026. Wristwear gained importance because of its multi-functional applications. With the integration of advanced technologies, the wristwear segment currently provides opportunities for the wearable technology market and would continue to do so in the coming years as well. Moreover, wristwear, headwear & eyewear, and bodywear would be the best segments to invest in the next few years. Headwear & eyewear includes products such as AR and product and technology used in various high-class applications such as the industrial segment, video gaming, and entertainment.
APAC exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The wearable technology market in APAC is expected to grow significantly in the next few years, at a CAGR of 21.8% because of the increased demand for wearable products in the region.
