DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Wearable Sensor Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis By Sensor Type, Application and Vertical” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

According to this report the market is expected to grow from US$ 1,906.74 million in 2021 to reach US$ 5,762.57 million by 2028. It is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 17.1% from 2021 to 2028.

Smart wearable devices, such as smartwatches, fitness trackers, VR headsets, smart wristbands, activity trackers, and sports watches, are integrated with advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AR) and IoT (IoT). Users can access their health-related information on their smartphones, tablets, or computers linked to these devices. With the growing consumer awareness, the adoption of smart wearable devices is on the rise in the healthcare sector. Fit bits, smartwatches, and pulse oximeters are among the wearable systems incorporated with optical sensors to provide real-time patient health tracking solutions.

Photoplethysmography (PPG) sensors that help monitor heart and respiration rates are high in demand. For instance, several smartwatches with inbuilt PPG sensors were launched in late 2021 by Moto G, Realme, and Apple. The Realme watches have wide-ranging health functions, comprising blood-oxygen-level and top-level PPG heart rate sensors. In October 2020, Mobvoi launched its new PPG sensor-enabled TicWatch Pro 3 smartwatch in India. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) report for 2020, the global wearable device shipments surged by 28.4% in 2020 compared to the previous year. They further grew by 9.9% till the third quarter of 2021.

Surging cases of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) worldwide are a key factor behind the uptake of wearable devices. According to the American Heart Association, ~17.0 million people die each year due to cardiac abnormalities, and the number is expected to rise to ~23 million by 2030. The PPG sensors typically measure oxygen saturation, blood pressure, and cardiac output through a series of waves and peak detection. Thus, the increasing sales of wearable devices are contributing substantially to the market growth.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the wearable sensors market was negatively affected from the supply side in the Rest of the world. The disruption in supply lines of electronics and semiconductors in 2020 caused this hindrance. However, from the demand side, the wearable sensors market was unaffected. For instance, at the end of 2020, Samsung announced it witnessed a 218% increase in smartwatch sales in Q1 of 2020 compared to Q1 of 2019 and that it will be manufacturing smartwatches and fitness bands in Brazil. Also, several manufacturing facilities and government agencies showcased the use of advanced technology such as AR and VR. For instance, the UAE police started to use smart helmets to fight against the pandemic. The smart helmet used by police officials is powered by thermal scanning capabilities, which allows the officials to identify people with high temperatures in public places.

A rapid increase in the use of smartphones and connected devices and the growing need for low-power, smaller, lighter sensors with enhanced performance are the factors supporting the trend of miniaturization. Advancements in nanotechnology and micro-fabrication technologies have been driving the progress of the miniaturization process, thereby making smart sensors cost-effective and anchoring the emergence of smart fabrics.

Further, in January 2022, Abbott Laboratories demonstrated the Libre 3 System, a glucose monitoring system that can be used for up to 14 days. Ava AG’s wearable fertility tracker for women received the US Food and Drug Administration clearance in 2021. At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2022, Reliefband Technologies LLC showcased the Reliefband Sport smartwatch that can prevent and treat nausea and vomiting due to anxiety, hangovers, motion sickness, physician-diagnosed migraines, chemotherapy, and pregnancy-related morning sickness. Thus, the increasing demand for wearables devices in healthcare applications drives the global wearable sensors market.
