The drivers of the market are the advancements in R&D causing increased innovation in recent years, and demand for a market that incorporates high technology and design in daily living. The increased demand from consumer electronics and fitness & healthcare sectors are also major drivers. The increased purchasing power in the developing countries and the advent of startup culture is expected to drive the global smart wearables market significantly. The restraints of this technology, though few, are significant in the role they play in affecting the market size. Data security concerns, higher costs of production, funding, marketing and limitations of a niche audience (which makes the technology a luxury product) are some of the prominent restraints of the market. The absence of good battery life is another issue that all major smart wearable makers need to look into.
The global smart wearables market is segmented on the basis of product type (wrist wears, eye wears, foot wears, neck wears, body wears and textile products, and others), applications (fitness and healthcare, general consumer electronics, gaming and recreational, corporate and industrial applications, research and development applications, military and intelligence and others) , technology used (sensing, display, computing, communication and networking, speech and pattern recognition technology, memory and storage technology and others), and geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Rest of the World).
