U.S. Wearable Computing Device Forecast Update, 2018–2022: CY 2Q18
This IDC study discusses our forecast for the U.S. wearable computing device market for 2018–2022."The U.S. wearables market continues to evolve and grow in the right direction," says Ramon T. Llamas, research director for IDC's Wearables team. "The transition from basic wearables to smart wearables is expected to accelerate but will not completely leave basic wearables behind, as there will still be demand for single- or specific-user device. Smart wearables, meanwhile, will evolve into multipurpose devices, which will help drive awareness and demand beyond what we see today."
