Worldwide Wearable Computing Device Forecast, 2019–2023: CY 1Q19

By: Ramon T. LlamasResearch Director, Mobile Devices and AR/VR


This IDC study presents a five-year forecast for the worldwide wearables market.

"The worldwide wearables market is in a state of transition, and this will later on lead to stronger growth in the latter years of our forecast," says Ramon T. Llamas, research director for IDC's Wearables team. "With the first act of the wearables firmly behind us, vendors are returning with improved hardware and software that are more attuned with user demands. Combined with a slowly warming reception among consumers and commercial users, we believe the market will accelerate in the latter years before topping the 200-million mark by 2023."
