Sensors used for tracking information related to fitness, health, location, etc. that are incorporated in a wearable device or technology are called as wearable sensors. These sensors are integrated in accessories, wearables, cloth etc. by using wireless devices that facilitate biological and physiological sensing for measuring, monitoring, and diagnosing blood pressure, heart rate, other metabolic activities.
Major factors driving growth of the global wearable sensors market is increasing adoption of smartphones and increasing adoption of wearable devices. In addition, increasing demand for smart devices and connected devices is another factor further driving growth of the global market. A major factor hampering growth of the global wearable sensors market is high cost of this sensors.
The global market is segmented on the basis of sensor type, application, industry vertical, and region. On the basis of sensor type, the global market is segmented into accelerometer, gyroscope, optical, force & pressure, temperature, medical based sensors, and others. The force and pressure segment is expected to account for highest revenue share by 2020.
On the basis of application, the global market is segmented into wrist wear, eyewear, footwear, neckwear, body wear, and others. The body wear segment is expected to witness highest growth in terms of revenue during the forecast period. On the basis of industry vertical, the global market is segmented into consumer goods, healthcare, industrial, and others. The consumer goods segment accounts for highest market share and is expected to witness fastest growth over the forecast period. On the basis of region, the global market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. The market in North America accounts for highest revenue share in the global market and is expected to account for highest revenue share by 2026. The market in Asia Pacific is expected to witness highest growth in terms of revenue during the next 10 years.
North America market dominates the global wearable sensors market in terms of revenue and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. Early adoption of wireless technology and increasing demand for wearable devices are major factor driving growth of the North America wearable sensors market.
Why nation-state attacks are everyone’s problem
With so much change all the time, how can executives best prepare their businesses to meet the security challenges of the coming years? CSO Australia, in conjunction with Mimecast, explored this question in an interactive Webinar that looks at how the threat landscape has evolved – and what we can expect in 2019 and beyond.
An interview with CSO's David Braue and Ian Yip, Chief Technology Officer, McAffee.
According to new research conducted by the Ponemon Institute, Australia and New Zealand have the highest levels of data breaches out of the nine countries investigated. This was linked to heavy investment in security detection and an under-investment in security and vulnerability response capabilities
