Wearable sensors are small electronic devices that can be worn as accessories, embedded in clothing or even as implants. They are widely used to track vital health signs such as heart rate, blood pressure, blood sugar levels etc. with increasing focus on fitness, wellness and preventive healthcare.
The global Wearable Sensors Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 978.86 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 16% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
Continuous health monitoring: One of the major trends seen in the wearable sensors market is continuous health monitoring. Wearable sensors allow for constant monitoring of vital health parameters without many restrictions. 24/7 health data collection allows for early detection of abnormalities and pre-emptive action. The tiny electronic sensors embedded in devices such as smart watches and fitness bands accurately measure metrics like heart rate, blood oxygen levels, number of steps etc. and transmit this health data to mobile applications. Continuous monitoring improves health outcomes by enabling remote patient monitoring and quicker medical intervention, if required. This has contributed significantly to growth of the wearable sensors market.
Strength: Wearable sensors have the ability to monitor user health parameters continuously. They are gaining popularity among health-conscious consumers and medical professionals.
Weakness: Data privacy and security concerns restrict widespread adoption. Limited battery life also poses usage barriers.
Opportunity: Growing geriatric population and rising focus on preventive healthcare present an opportunity area. Integration of advanced technologies like AI, 5G, etc will spur future innovations.
Threats: Stringent regulations around data usage. Stiff competition from established players and new entrants may squeeze margins.
