Enterprise Wearables Market: Segmentation

This research report includes a detailed segmentation by Product Type, End-user, Connectivity, and Geography. Wrist wears were the dominant segment in the enterprise wearables market in 2019, and the segment expected to sustain its position during the forecast period. As wristwatches and fitness trackers are utilized to monitor health, fitness, heart rates, attendance, authorization, and biometric procedures, the scope and potential for the end-user are high across industries. Further, the presence of a significant number of players with affordable products is fueling the demand in the market. As the gadget is no longer seen as a fashion statement, the competition is gaining momentum based on the technological edge. North America was estimated as the largest wristwear market in 2019, which is closely followed by Europe and APAC.

While the healthcare sector is the dominant application segment, oil, mining, and construction end-users are expected to offer substantial growth opportunities vendors during the forecast period. The UK and Germany are considered to be global leaders in adopting the latest innovations in the medical sector. The highly sophisticated patient monitoring, diagnosis, treatment, remote consulting in Europe is expected to stimulate demand in the next five years. Smartwatches, bands, and smart rings are the most preferred devices in the segment, where Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are the major sources of connecting platforms.

The automotive industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the adoption of enterprise wearable technology during the forecast period. While major automotive manufacturers such as Ford, BMW, and Audi have already implemented wearable solutions, the prominence in other automotive industries is expected to increase in the next five years. The IT industry is expected to implement wearables to increase employee liability by creating customized programs that can improve overall well-being, increasing the affinity for workers, and helping the employer’s cost-control better. Enterprises are already utilizing these technologies to follow the health of their employees.

While the Bluetooth segment is likely to continue its dominance in terms of revenue, the cellular and NFC segment being the most utilized forms of connectivity is expected to grow the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The Bluetooth platform is embedded in most smartwatches. However, Wi-Fi-based connectivity is ideal for employees being deployed at remote workplaces as it facilitates high-speed integration and seamless engagement. Wi-Fi is the preferable connectivity mode for oil, gas, mining and other large warehousing enterprises, Europe contributed over 34% to the total market in 2019; however, the APAC region is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period in terms of revenue. The healthcare segment is expected to propel the demand for Wi-Fi-based devices where processes such as operations management, remote patient monitoring, glucose monitoring, IoT enabled hearing aids, and interoperability are expected to make use of the technology. The decreasing overall cost and high opportunities offered by IoT-based devices through Wi-Fi connectivity is expected to serve as a hotspot for innovations. The cellular and near-field communication (NFC) segment is expected to reach over $10 billion by 2025. The growth in contactless payments, authorization in retail enterprises, and the introduction of 5G is expected to boost the adoption in the coming years. The Bluetooth segment, which also includes the Bluetooth Low Energy segment, is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 37%. The low investment cost and feasible access can further fuel the growth of the Bluetooth segment. However, limited connectivity challenges can hinder the adoption of smart glasses and clothing.
