Worldwide Wearable Applications Forecast Update, 2015–2019

This IDC study contains our updated projections for the number of applications that will be written to smart wearable devices through 2019."The smart wearables market is heading for certain growth in the years to come," says Ramon T. Llamas, research manager for IDC's Wearables team. "What will make it thrive are applications. Just as smartphones and tablet benefited from third-party apps, so too will wearables. Since we are still in the early stages of the market, there is plenty of space for experimentation to see how applications work best on wearables. But given the fast pace at which the market is moving, the time is now to bring applications to market that leverage the full capabilities of wearables."
