Market Dynamics


The growing miniaturization trend in wearable sensors to augment market growth

The wearable sensor embedded devices including bodywear, wristwear, and eyewear are progressively being used in the healthcare as well as consumer goods industry. Gradually, the IoT embedded wearable devices has improved steadily and are becoming smaller in size. Thus, the key players in the wearable devices industry such as Apple,Fitbit, Garmin and others are persistently striving to offer high-end innovations in wearable products like wearable devices with advanced functional attributeswith compact size and others.The use of microelectronics to miniaturize sensors has proven to be the disruptive development in the wearable devices. The hardware components record physiological as well as mobility data which can be used for long-term monitoring. Thus, the key market players like NXP Semiconductors, STMicroelectronics, and Broadcom are aggressively investing in Research &Development.


Lack of common standards and interoperability issues

There are many smart Internet-connected devices on the market today, and the number is rapidly increasing. Standardization is a critical requirement for efficient sensor information and sensor data communication. There are some companies that have developed sensor communication standards. For example, the OGC's Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) standards meet the need for improved sensor communication in both complex and simple applications. The SWE standards make it simple to incorporate this data into thousands of geospatial applications that follow OGC or other standards. Interoperability issues are also caused by a lack of common standards for sensor communication. Interoperability and easy information exchange between connected devices are critical for the continued growth of the wearable ecosystem. At the moment, the technical and market scenarios for wearable technology are not very promising in terms of an architectural solution. To accomplish this, the market players, organisations, and developers will need to invest significant time and effort in understanding the role of security and its importance. As a result, the lack of common standards and interoperability issues limit the overall growth of the wearable sensors market.


A growing number of connected devices to augment market growth

Global Internet penetration has increased dramatically over the last five years. Almost one-third of the world's population now has access to the Internet at higher bandwidths. As a result, the number of Internet-enabled smart devices in developing countries such as India, China and others has increased. Smartphones are among the most widely used portable devices in the wearable ecosystem, and they are primarily used for gathering and tracking data related to health and fitness for consumers aged between the 0–9and 60 years or older. Furthermore, wearable devices are an important component of platforms such as IoT(Internet of Things) and M2M, which are key factors in the growing number of connected devices worldwide.


Technical difficulties associated with hardware and software to hamper market growth

As many new technologies integrated into the system, portable devices can experience hardware and software-related performance issues that can impede their adoption. A common concern faced by users is waterproofing, as sweating and washing can cause harmful moisture to wearable devices. In addition, the compact size of the device can limit spare power and reduce screen and display size. Some of the instances related to hardware issues are already on the market. For example, in 2011 Jawbone's UP products experienced circuit board issues that affected charging, data acquisition, and in some cases overall functionality. Therefore, factors related to the technical difficulty of wearable device hardware and software are major challenges for the growth of the wearable sensor market.
