U.S. Wearable Computing Device Forecast, 2020–2024: CY 1Q20

This IDC study discusses the forecast for the U.S. wearable computing device market for 2020–2024."Hearables marked explosive growth in 2019 and will ride the momentum into 2020 and beyond," says Ramon T. Llamas, research director, IDC's Wearables team. "With different styles, prices, and functionalities built in, hearables are poised to reach the broadest audience yet. Meanwhile, smartwatches will continue to find a place among users, especially as they expand further into multipurpose/multifunction use cases. Together, these will offset the slower-growth and declining products within the wearables market."
