Wearable Materials Market Size, Share & Forecast (2021 - 2026)

The Global Wearable Materials Market size was valued at close to USD 3.5 billion at the end of 2021 and is estimated to rise at a CAGR of around 17.3% to reach about USD 5.02 billion by the year 2026.

Wearable devices are smart electronic equipment assimilated with the clothing or worn on the individual as accessories or grafts. They are made up of bio-compatible materials and have characteristics like durability, flexibility, stiffness, firmness, lightness of weight, color stability, chemical and stain resistance, sweat resistance, and resistance to cracking. Materials employed in the manufacture of wearable devices are Fluor elastomers, polyurethanes, and silicones. Wearable materials are explained as the flexible materials which are employed for making the sensors, batteries, and other electrical equipment which are employed in wearable equipment. There has been an expansion in wearable technology that will further contribute to creating the requirement for materials withholding the wear and tear of day to day life. Wearable technology is no more the life of the future. It's the life of the present and flexible materials are playing a major part in the wearable technology industry. From smartwatches that can take phone calls and texts and run apps to fitness or emotional wellness devices that are made to track total health, wearable devices can accomplish incredible things, mainly thanks to the role of flexible materials in their employment. Present advances in wearable technology have been making flexible materials highly significant.
