Wearable Electronics Industry & Technology to Grow at a CAGR of 17.7% to 2018

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) adds "Wearable Electronics Market and Technology Analysis (2013 - 2018): By Components (Sensors, Battery, Display, Networking); Applications (Consumer, Healthcare, Enterprise); Products (Smart -Textiles, Glasses, Watches);e-Materials & Geography" report to its research database.

Wearable computers are small electronic devices worn by the user, which enable mobile computing and wireless networking. The term "Wearable Electronics" refers to any electronic device or product which can be worn by a person to integrate computing in his daily activity or work and use technology to avail advanced features & characteristics. Concerted efforts from industry and academia for over two decades have resulted into host of sophisticated products and devices being launched in the market. The potential of the industry can be gauged by the fact that both - the big and established players and small start-ups have up their ante in wearable electronics market.

The global market was worth more than $2.5 billion in revenue in 2012 and is expected to cross $8 billion in 2018, growing at a healthy CAGR of 17.7% from 2013 to 2018. In terms of products, wrist-wear accounted for the largest market revenue in 2012, with total revenue of the most established wearable electronic products - wrist-watches and wrist-bands combined, crossing $850 million.

Among application sectors, consumer applications accounted for the largest market share, with revenue crossing $2 billion, as of 2012. However, that of enterprise and industrial application is expected to grow at the highest CAGR (more than 21%), during the forecast period of 2013 to 2018. North America, with U.S. accounting for more than 80% of the market is the single largest revenue base for this global market, and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period as well. However, the market in Asia-Pacific, with China leading the way, is likely to grow at the highest CAGR during the next five years.

This report based on an in-depth research study on the wearable electronics market and its related industries, focuses on the complete global market for all types of wearable electronic products which are available commercially and which are yet to commercialize in the near future (before 2018). The report's market scope covers the market for wearable electronic products which includes market for all wristbands (like Nike+ fuelband), all smart goggles (with all display technologies along with HUD & HMD), and all wearable footwear (including special ones with activity tracking sensors), clothing & apparel (including smart textiles) and others (ring scanners & neck-wear) for different applications across all industry verticals.

The report excludes all typical traditional wearable products, gadgets or devices that dos not employ "wearable technologies" or "wearable computing" such as conventional wrist-wear (traditional watches), eye-wear (traditional glasses or goggles), foot-wear (shoes), neck-wear (necklaces or ties) and body -wear (textiles), with no advanced computing and communication technologies embedded in them.
