This IDC study profiles top vendors in the smart clothing market from around the world and provides an overview of the smart clothing market. Smart clothing as defined by IDC includes all manner of connected clothing, ranging from shirts and coats to socks, pants, and gloves. IDC believes that initially health and wellness have driven the use case for wearables over the past few years, and smart clothing continues to accelerate this trend. The next few years are expected to be foundational to grow the smart clothing market.

"Smart clothing, like the wearables market in general, is just getting started, but we are seeing innovative ways that these deliver value to users," say study authors Emily Taylor, senior analyst for Consumer Services and Mobility, and Ramon Llamas, research manager, Wearable and Mobile Phones. "Clearly, health and fitness is the low-hanging fruit for customers, particularly those who are eager to track and improve their performance with data on heart rate, breathing rate, and activity. What will be interesting to watch in the future is how smart clothing develops with more sensors and applications, and how it moves from niche users to the mass market."

    • I have had negative experiences with market research reports before. How can you avoid this from happening again?
    • We advise all clients to read the TOC and Summary and list your questions so that we can get more insight for you before you make any purchase decision. A research advisor will accompany you so that you can compare samples and reports from different sources, and choose the study that is right for you.

  • Report Delivery
    • How and when I will receive my Report?
    • Most reports are delivered right away in a pdf format, while others are accessed via a secure link and access codes. Do note that sometimes reports are sent within a 12 hour period, depending on the time zones. However, you can contact us to escalate this. Should you need a hard copy, you can check if this option is offered for the particular report, and pay the related fees.
  • Payment conditions
    • What payment methods do you accept?
      1. Credit card : VISA, American Express, Mastercard, or
      2. You can download an invoice to pay by wire transfer, check, or via a Purchase Order from your company, or

    • All payments must normally be submitted within 30 days. However, you can let us know if you need extended time.
    • Are Taxes and duties included?
    • All companies based in France must pay a 20% tax per report. The same applies to all individuals based in the EU. All EU companies must supply their VAT number when purchasing to avoid this charge.
    • I’m not satisfied. Can I be refunded?
    • No. Once your order has been processed and the publisher has received a notification to send you the report, we cannot issue any refund or cancel any order. As these are not ‘traditional’ products that can be returned, reports that are dispatched are considered to be ‘consumed’.
  • User license
    • The license that you should acquire depends on the number of persons that need to access the report. This can range from Single User (only one person will have the right to read or access the report), or Department License (up to 5 persons), to Site License (a group of persons based in the same company location), or Corporate License (the entire company personnel based worldwide). However, as publishers have different terms and conditions, we can look into this for you.
