This IDC study presents a five-year forecast for the U.S. wearables market.
"The U.S. wearables market continues to grow by leaps and bounds," says Ramon Llamas, research manager for IDC's Wearables team. "Nearly each month, we see new devices coming in from both established vendors and start-ups, and this helps raise the profile of wearables overall. Most importantly, there is a greater understanding and a simmering interest in wearables as a whole as both devices and applications improve. This sets the stage for continued growth in the market."
