Worldwide Wearables Market Shares, 1H16: Basic Wearables Soar, Smart Wearables Stall
This IDC study examines the market share of the major vendors in the worldwide wearables market in 1H16. Figures are based on unit shipments from vendor into channel. "The worldwide wearables market continues to make upward progress, yet its progress has remained rather uneven," said Ramon T. Llamas, research manager for IDC's Wearables research team. "While basic wearables have seen steadily growing volumes, smart wearables have stalled somewhat. But the common thread to both of them is that continued development — for both hardware and software — is warranted to attract and retain customers in order for the market to grow. This gives OEMs terrific latitude in their wearables strategy going forward, but a fickle marketplace wants these developments sooner than later."
