U.S. Wearables Market Shares, 1H16: Following Fitbit, Vendors Jockey for Position
This IDC study examines the market share of the major vendors in the U.S. wearables market in 1H16. Figures are based on unit shipments from vendor into channel."The U.S. wearables market saw modest growth during the first half of the year, a time when most vendors resorted to older models," said Ramon T. Llamas, research manager for IDC's Wearables research team. "The good news is that the market continues to find stronger footing with slowly growing receptivity among end users. The better news is that this results in pent-up demand for new devices and experiences going into the second half of the year."
