Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The increasing popularity of wearable patches is encouraging various industries to enter the global wearable patch market. Several cosmetic companies are entering into the market because of its high growth potential. For instance, Feeligreen has developed an anti-aging medical patch. The company is focusing on the development of an anti-aging patch called dermoPatch. It differs from a regular anti-aging patch as it uses the infusion of technology to apply a micro-current across the skin barrier. It increases the ability of the skin to improve the restoration of molecules.”
According to the report, wearable patches help people monitor their health conditions to avoid serious health issues. The increase in aging population, rise in number of diseases, and high healthcare costs are major concerns for people. People are becoming increasingly concerned about their health and fitness. The increasing demand for diet programs and mobile health applications is helping the market to grow as it is encouraging more users adopt wearable patches. The increased awareness of wearable patches among consumers is expected to continue to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.
Further, the report states that the integration of sensors into smartphones, tablets, and consumer-end devices and accessories is a challenge faced by vendors in the market. Mobile health and fitness applications use built-in sensors in smartphones to check heart rate, distance walked, steps taken, and calories burned during a workout. This feature has some limitations as it increases the manufacturing cost of wearable patches, which is a challenge for vendors in the market.
