“The wearable materials market is projected to register a CAGR of 15.0%, in terms of value, between 2018 and 2023.”

The market size for wearable materials is estimated at USD 1.5 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 2.9 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 15.0% between 2018 and 2023. The growth of this market is attributed to the increasing demand for low-cost wearables and rising disposable income in emerging economies. Another factor driving the wearable materials market is consumer preference for sophisticated wearables and growing popularity of connected devices. However, factors such as lack of durability and supple wearable materials are restraining the growth of the market. The prices of these wearable materials have been highly volatile in recent times, which affected the growth of the market.

”Silicones segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”

The silicones segment is expected to be the fastest-growing type of wearable materials. This is owed to the increasing use of silicones for wearable medical devices. One of the major advantages of using silicone technology in wearables is its versatility. Silicone can be modified to adhere to a device’s specific requirements. Specific characteristics such as adhesion, peel strength, permeability, transparency, and processing properties can be tailored to meet the requirements of the wearable device.  Silicones are also non-cytotoxic and are not sensitive to the skin. Silicone has low interfacial bonding for less impact on the skin with greater flowability for stable adhesion.

“Consumer electronics is the largest application of wearable materials.”

Consumer electronics is expected to be the largest application of the wearable materials market during the forecast period. Consumer wearable electronics encompass a number of wearable devices related to fitness & sports, entertainment & multimedia, and garments & fashion. Factors such as increasing consumer demand and rapid miniaturization of sensor technology have contributed to the growth of the wearable market, which in turn, has increased the demand for wearable materials.

“APAC is projected to be the largest wearable material market during the forecast period.”

The APAC wearable material market is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This high growth is owed to the growing middle-class population, rapid urbanization, and increasing purchasing power of consumers. The growing consumer goods sector in this region also fuel the demand for wearable materials.
