Wearable Technologies Global Market Forecast - 2016-2025


Reading time ( words)

Wearable technology includes a host of technologies that are capable of being integrated into the 'Soldier System' and into a variety of other civilian systems and components in ways not previously possible. These technologies actively enhance safety, situational awareness (local and global), and operational performance.

Wearable Technologies Market

Over the coming decade, the wearable technologies market is expected to grow at a cumulative CAGR of nearly 40%, producing a cumulative global market of nearly $8 billion.
This report presents a summary and assessment of both the current commercial and military wearable technologies, the projected evolutionary paths over the next decade, and the implications of both technical and political influence on the global market for wearable technologies.

The trend toward disaggregation of computing and sensing technology is accelerating, enhanced by the shrinking size of components that provide the user with far superior capacity than similar components of greater size and power demand. With this physical separation and shrinking of components comes the opportunity to place wearable technology on and around a person in a fashion that is less intrusive and more conducive to extended periods of wear. Additionally, as ever more users allow data to be uploaded to the cloud for anonymous aggregation and large-scale use-analysis, wearable systems can learn and modify factory-preset behavior to better support and enhance the end user experience.

This report looks at today's growing commercial and military wearable technology markets.

The early focus in this commercial market has been to develop distributed systems for wearable communications and health monitoring devices, while the military market has also focused on visual displays (head-up displays or HUDs) and on-body energy harvesting systems.

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.

CES 2020: The Intelligence of Things

01/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Show week for CES 2020 starts well ahead of the actual exhibition dates because it is huge. The organizers of CES state that there are more than 4,400 exhibiting companies and nearly three million net square feet of exhibit space. On the floor, you can find 307 of the 2018 Fortune Global 500 companies. Over the week, I-Connect007 Editors Dan Feinberg and Nolan Johnson will bring you some of the most interesting news, products, and announcements from 5G to IoT, semiconductor developments, autonomous vehicle technology, interconnect, fabrication materials, and much more.
