Wearable devices such as fitness trackers have started to impact consumers’ personal lives, making them more knowledgeable about their activity levels, sleep patterns, and eating habits. However, the impact of wearables goes beyond trackers and personal lives into work life, as well, giving companies and employees the tools and technologies to make the workplace more productive, safe, and collaborative. The adoption of wearables in the workplace will occur both in corporate enterprise environments and in industrial settings such as warehouses, manufacturing shop floors, and field maintenance sites.

Enterprise wearables include devices that are part of the bring your own wearable (BYOW) trend, those that are provided by employers as part of corporate wellness programs, and augmented reality (AR) headsets used for 3D/CAD modeling and collaborative work. Industrial wearables are used in manufacturing or other industrial environments and are utilized to enable and optimize workflow efficiency, enhance communications, reduce paperwork, and allow workers to take advantage of a hands-free work environment. Tractica forecasts that enterprise and industrial use cases will drive the deployment of more than 75 million wearable devices during the period from 2014 through 2020.

This Tractica report provides a comprehensive examination of the market opportunity for enterprise and industrial wearables, analyzing various device categories, their specific roles, and adoption timelines in the workplace. Key device categories include smart watches, smart glasses, fitness trackers, smart clothing, body sensors, wearable cameras, and other wearables. The report also contains market sizing and forecasts from 2013 through 2020, providing shipments and revenues along with segmentation by device category, region, and enterprise and industrial use cases.
