Key Market Trends

Wrist Wearables To Have Significant Growth

  • Smartwatches have taken the world by storm owing to the features such as human comfort, convenience, security, and monitoring health conditions offered by these watches. 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 essential where physical activity is directly concerned with their accomplishment. And thus, smart wrist wearables fulfill all these requirements, which help in creating a market for wrist wearables.
  • With sensor manufacturers, such as Texas Instruments, supporting the use of temperature sensor capabilities in smartwatches or fitness trackers, the use of these sensors is expected to increase further in the future. For instance, the LMT70 Wearable Design uses a small form factor electrical system that fits inside a smartwatch or fitness tracker that measures both human skin and room temperatures with an accuracy of 0.1°C in the human body temperature range of 20°C-42°C.
  • However, measuring or monitoring body temperature is a topical subject for wearables in current times, mainly because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. A high temperature (37.8C or greater) is one of the common symptoms of respiratory illness. Such applications of wearable temperature sensors, coupled with the increase in the demand for smartwatches, are expected to contribute to the growth of the Wearable Temperature Sensors Market globally.
Wearable Temperature Sensors Market

Asia-Pacific to Witness the Fastest Growth

  • Asia-Pacific is anticipated to register the fastest growth because of the presence of two highly populated countries such as 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.
  • According to the Health of Asia Barometer 2020 report by Prudential and the Economist, a collection of survey responses from 13 countries in Asia, 78.5% of respondents use some form of personal health technology.
  • Moreover, advancements in technologies have encouraged wearable manufacturers to come up with innovative ideas to embed the sensors into smartwatches and monitor the changes using Android and iOS apps.
  • Further, COVID-19 accelerated the demand for temperature sensors in wearable devices in Asia-Pacific, and many vendors are launching products to meet this demand.
  • In April 2021, Timex launched its fit health monitoring smartwatch in India. The wearable comes with numerous health and fitness features, including telemedicine, a temperature sensor to monitor the body’s temperature, and a SpO2 monitor.
