Wearable sensors are Micro-Electromechanical Systems based sensors which can sense and process the surrounding environment. Wearable sensors are embedded in wearable devices to monitor bodily activities which cover blood pressure, body temperature and heart rate. The sector is primarily driven due to the growing awareness of health and fitness, where wearable sensors play a main role. Also, the falling price of the components used to manufacture the wearable sensors is making the wearable devices affordable. Additionally to this, the wearable sensors are also being used to monitor patients in the healthcare industry as it enables remote data access.

The overall wearable sensors market is forecast to witness a serious growth during the outlook period. This is due to its growing demand across several application sectors including wearable technology for fitness, healthcare and security. The increase in demand of wearable technology is also driving the wearable sensors market. Moreover, the increasing market of smartphones and tablets is also enabling the integration of wearable devices with the smartphones. Presently, wrist wear segment holds the majority of the market share and is forecast to dominate the segment during the outlook period. The introduction of clever watches from firms such as Samsung, Sony and Nike among others has given a boost to this market. Additionally, the foot wear application market is also anticipated to grow quickly during the forecast period.

Adoption of high end technologies including clever wearables is also creating additional opportunities for the wearable sensors manufacturers globally. On the other hand, the case of security concerns including crucial data being shared is acting as a restraint. The increasing awareness and concern over health and fitness is also helping the sector to grow. With the introduction of fitness band that can be worn and connected with clever phones to display the information is also supporting the increase of the market. Geographically, North America (NA) has the more significant penetration for wearable sensors as they are the early adapters of newer technology. Nevertheless, the Asia Pacific region is forecast to show the more important rate due to the presence of developing nations such as India (IN) and China (CN).
