Smart watches, fitness bands, smart clothing, hearables, head-mounted displays, and wearable medical devices are covered in this research. It includes temperature, pressure, image/optical, motion, microphone, proximity, medical sensors. Health and wellness, safety monitoring, sports and fitness, and other applications are discussed as well.
North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of World are covered. Due to their potential in a wide variety of applications, wearable devices have recently gained a lot of attention. Non-invasive monitoring of human health and activity parameters are becoming a focus of increased research efforts. For real-time non-invasive monitoring, a wide range of wearable sensors is being created. A motion sensor monitors an object's or a person's movement in an environment. A wearable motion sensor may collect and store data about a person's movement, which can then be analyzed. This is done using accelerometers, gyroscopes, and inertial measurement units. Pressure sensor measures mechanical variables, such as force before converting it into resistance-dependent electrical measurements. Temperature sensor tracks body temperature; the more the body seems to heat up, the more severe an exercise is recorded. A microphone is a sensor or transducer that converts sound to electric signals. Microphone sensors are in high demand in hearable applications. Other sensors include proximity sensors, heart rate sensors, GPS, pedometers, and medical sensors, such as for blood oxygen, heart rate, blood pressure. Advanced smart sensors offered by key competitors use innovative architecture to deliver lower power consumption and lower noise. Ultra-low-power operation and measurement accuracy is significant in the new generation of sensors.
Production and purchase of wearable sensors were impacted in 2020 and the market is expected to recover in 2021. Life style changes, increase in significance for health and fitness, smart phone proliferation & connectivity, and average selling prices have increased the demand for wearable devices.
