U.S. Wearable Computing Device Forecast Update, 2019–2023: CY 3Q19

This IDC study discusses the forecast for the U.S. wearable computing device market for 2019–2023."The U.S. wearables market will see continued growth in 2019 and beyond," says Ramon T. Llamas, research director for IDC's Wearables team. "Different products are moving at different trajectories and speeds, enough for some of the newer and stronger products like earworn wearables and smartwatches to offset the losses of other products like wristbands and modular clip-on devices. At the same time, the user experience will continue to develop, and prices will decline to attract new users."
