Prediction: Wearable Sales Will Continue To Grow Double-Digit This Year

Opportunities in the wearable market are expanding and this is what leads IDC to forecast that sales will grow to 198.5 million units by the end of this year. In a few years, in 2023, sales are expected to stand at 279 million units, which will mean a compound annual growth rate of 8.9%.

As factors that will drive them, the consultant refers to the continued proliferation of watches, headphones and ear devices or bracelets, but also the emergence of new applications such as, for example, the health care sector. At this point, IDC emphasizes that the devices are a good source of data about the patient that, besides, can be more autonomous when it comes to keeping track of their health.

Within the company segment, wearables can facilitate digital transformation by transmitting information and allowing workers to perform tasks faster.
