Key Market Trends

Smart Watches Have Significant Growth

  • Wearable temperature sensor products vary from in-the-ear to bio-stickers that can be worn on the skin for people of all age groups. With the onset of technologies such as advanced patient monitoring systems and portable health monitoring systems, demand for temperature sensors is on the rise. 
  • Smart watches have taken the world of wearable technology by storm due to owing features such as human comfort, convenience, security and for monitoring health conditions. As a result, smartwatches are receiving greater attention because of their facile interaction with the human body, such as monitoring heart rate, wrist pulse, motion, blood pressure, intraocular pressure, and other health-related conditions.
  • In addition, real-time monitoring of body temperature is crucial for recognizing sudden adverse occurrences, such as heart attacks. Furthermore, temperature monitoring is important where physical activity is directly concerned with their accomplishment. And thus, smartwatches fulfill all these requirements which help in creating a market for smartwatches.
  • For instance, in September 2018, Apple announced a new series of Apple Watch 4 Series which helped women track their ovulation cycle by reading their basal body temperature, which is an indicator of fertility. The integration of these sensors to a smartphone app gives the user a better understanding of the probability of conceiving and speeding-up the chances of getting pregnant.
  • Moreover, Apple Inc is a pioneer in consumer electronic segments and owns the largest market share, therefore, the above factors are expected to boost the Apples' smartwatch industry which in return will help in booming the wearable temperature sensors market.

Asia-Pacific to Witness the Fastest Growth

  • Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth because of the presence of two highly populated countries i.e. China and India. In these two countries, the increase in disposable income will act as a supplement for the growth of the wearable temperature sensors market.
  • With the increasing smartphone sales in Asia-Pacific, it is evident that cellphones have become an integral part of life for many peoples residing here. Moreover, advancements in technologies have been encouraging the wearable manufacturers to come up with innovative ideas to embed the sensors into smartwatches and monitor the changes using Android and iOS apps. Thus, the rising trend of the smart wearable and is expected to make these countries key revenue pockets for this market.
  • Moreover, cheap products launched in China and India coupled with the rising pool of chronic diseases like obesity and diabetes are also the major factors in the development of this market.
