40% of Growth to Originate from APAC for Wearable Technology Market


Reading time ( words)

The Wearable Technology Market value is set to grow by USD 35.48 billion, progressing at a CAGR of over 13% from 2019 to 2024, as per the latest report by Technavio.

The market is fragmented, and the degree of fragmentation will accelerate during the forecast period. Alphabet Inc., Apple Inc., Fossil Group Inc., Garmin Ltd., Huawei Investment & Holding Co. Ltd., LG Electronics Inc., Polar Electro Oy, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., Vuzix Corp., and Xiaomi Corp. are some of the major market participants. To leverage the current opportunities, market vendors must strengthen their foothold in the fast-growing segments, while maintaining their positions in the slow-growing segments.

Wearable device manufacturers are integrating near-field communication (NFC) technology as a standard into most devices to enable contactless payment by a direct tap and pay via POS terminal. The process reduces the transaction time compared to the cash or card method and eliminates the need to carry cash or cards. Moreover, the growing adoption of contactless payment is increasing the number of partnerships among the market participants to facilitate the use of wearable devices for payment. This is also encouraging vendors to integrate the contactless payment feature into their offerings. For instance, Xiaomi launched its MI Band 3, which was integrated with NFC chips and supported contactless payment. The growing preference for contactless payment through wearable devices and its rapid adoption will drive the growth of the global wearable technology market during the forecast period.

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.
