Smart glasses are head-worn wearable computing devices that contain multiple sensors, processing units, and optical head-mounted displays (OHMDs). Smart glasses display augmented information onto
the physical world. The applications of smart glasses offer great potential to achieve real-time and enriched interaction between the user of smart glasses and the physical world with augmented
information. Users of smart glasses can provide inputs through various actions such as head movement, hand gesture, voice input, and others. The growth of the global smart glasses is largely driven by factors such as technological advancements in smart glasses, increasing trend of ‘Bring Your Own Wearables’ in enterprises, development in AR apps and improvement in productivity and efficiency through usage of
smart glasses. The growth of the smart glasses market is being restrained by factors such as high cost, bulky design and privacy concerns raised by users and surrounding people (people who are in the
vicinity of the smart glasses user).

The global market for smart glasses has been segmented based on form factor, display technology, operating system, application, and geography. Based on form factor, the market has been classified into
monocular smart glasses and binocular smart glasses. Based on display technology, the smart glasses market has been segmented into diffractive waveguide, holographic waveguide, polarized waveguide,
reflective waveguide, and others. Based on operating systems, smart glasses are classified under Android, Windows, and others. Based on applications, the market has been segmented into consumer
applications and enterprise applications. The enterprise application segment for smart glasses has been further under manufacturing, healthcare, military & defense, warehouse, construction & architecture, and others. Geographically, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and RoW.
