This IDC study discusses our forecast for the worldwide smartwatch market for 2019–2023."The appeal of smartwatches will reach a broader audience in the years to come and resulting from that is a steady increase in shipments each year," says Ramon T. Llamas, research director for IDC's Wearables team.
