Wearable technology is an electronic device worn on the user’s body. Such devices can take many forms, including jewelry, accessories, medical devices, and clothing or clothing elements. The growth of the wearable technologies market is driven by factors such as the increasing growth prospects of next-generation displays in wearable devices, incremental technological advancements aiding the market growth, and the rising prevalence of chronic diseases and obesity. The increasing demand for wearables that integrate all computing requirements in one compact device, increasing internet penetration, and high adoption of smart wearables are expected to create growth opportunities for the players operating in this market.

The Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Wearable Technology Market

The COVID-19 pandemic caused a widespread economic downturn as several countries imposed strict lockdowns to contain the infection. The shutdown of on-premise business processes and disruptions in supply chains and production schedules severely affected businesses worldwide, significantly impacting the technology supply chains globally. The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the global wearable technologies market demand due to the shutdown of consumer electronics, automobile, industrial, and other manufacturing facilities across the globe.

In the first half of 2020, worldwide restrictions and governmental regulations disrupted the global wearable technologies market’s supply chain. Countries in the Asia-Pacific region, such as India, China, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan, have substantial availability of manufacturers for raw materials utilized in wearable products. However, the unforeseen lockdown negatively impacted wearable technology manufacturing, which impacted their production schedules. Therefore, the sales dropped amid the lockdown in major global economies, resulting in limited deliveries and a drop in sales ratio.

Increasing Growth Prospects of Next-generation Displays in Wearable Devices

As a result of more than three decades of R&D, it has been possible to develop flexible and affordable electronic displays. However, the major challenges that companies face are the high luminance requirement, high power consumption, and brightness issues. However, recent product launches by various industry players are initiated for wearable device display technology improvements. In February 2019, Nubia Alpha (China) launched a one-of-a-kind smartwatch with an OLED flexible display, a camera, and eSIM support at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 in Barcelona, Spain. The Nubia Alpha smartwatch specifications include a Snapdragon Wear 2100 SoC, 1 GB RAM, and 8 GB internal storage. It runs on a custom OS and packs a 500-mAh battery.

Additionally, advancements in backplane materials are the current trend. Instead of silicon in the backplane, engineers use a metal oxide composed of indium, gallium, and zinc in equal parts, giving the material its name—IGZO or indium gallium zinc oxide—which is used in advanced wearable display technology. It is expected that the industry outlook toward integrating the next-generation display technology in wearable devices would further improve the marketability of wearable products.
