Wearable Technologies in Clinical and Consumer Health : Strategic Recommendations and Competitive Considerations for a $30 Billion Market Opportunity

This research service analyzes the global market for wearable technologies in clinical and consumer health. It discusses in detail how industry convergence and technological innovations are transitioning wearables from simple consumer devices to actionable healthcare applications—specifically in managing targeted chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart failure, arrhythmia, pain, respiratory, and neurological conditions. The final section discusses key challenges on why wearables fail and provides strategic recommendations for future growth opportunities, including emerging business models around healthcare wearable devices and platform services.

Key Questions this Study Will Answer

- How will wearable technologies evolve to play a greater role in health and wellness?
- What opportunities exist in clinical care for wearables? How are companies monetizing these opportunities?
- What emerging technological building blocks (sensors, devices, and apps) are contributing to the future functionality of wearables?
- What are the prevailing problems with care delivery today, and how can wearables serve to address them?
- What types of emerging business models and ecosystem partnerships are being formed?
