Wearable Sensors Market : Global Demand Analysis & Opportunity Outlook 2024

Published On : December, 2018 REP-ID-271 Category: ICT & Electronics

Wearable Sensors Market Overview

Wearable sensors are devices that collect input information about the physical and biological properties of the body and environment. Further this information is utilized to do calculations which yields output information. Wearable sensors are implanted in wearable devices to track fitness, environmental and health activities such as heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, stress level, movements, speed, local temperature etc.  Wearable sensors are used in many devices such as fitness watch, smart shoes, glasses, VR headsets, jewelry (rings), hearable, sleep mask, body wear and others. The key factors driving the global wearable sensors market are compact size, low cost and miniaturization of sensors. Further, technological integration of wearable sensors with textiles is emerging trend in the market. Compact and advanced product development and merger and acquisition are the major strategies which the companies have adopted from the past 4-5 years. Innovation of specific sensors such as PIQ Multi –Sport wearable sensor is expected to boost the wearable sensor market in the upcoming years.

Market Size and forecast

The market of wearable sensors is anticipated to grow at considerable CAGR during the forecast period 2017-2024. The global wearable sensors market is expected to garner USD 1,943.68 million by 2024. Further, the market is expecting gigantic rise in the demand due to the miniaturization of sensors and advancement in healthcare industries. Further, the bolstering market of smartphones is going to augment the integrated wearable devices.
