Wearable Sensors Market

The global wearable sensors market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 19.15% over the forecast period 2021-2026. Wearable sensors fitted with the wearable clothes so that required data can be collected more easily. There are various types of sensors used, such as temperature sensors, pressure sensors, and motion sensors, and others, to collect and analyze various types of data related to the body. The development of technology is the key to innovations in the wearable sensors market.


The main factor contributing most to the market is an increase in awareness among people regarding their physical health. An increase in the geriatric population and the prevalence of unhealthy lifestyle, which has led to diseases like hypertension and cardiovascular diseases, has driven the growth of remote monitoring devices. The increase in overall spending on healthcare due to the rise in disposable income has also positively affected the market. By home and remote patient care, the number of visits to hospitals has been reduced, which is very helpful for the elderly and physically disabled people. The remote monitoring devices are also helpful in monitoring the sleep and are very helpful for patients and doctors. The growing integration of medical sensors in consumer electronics will support remote care will further contribute to the growing market. Growing awareness about fitness monitoring, the use of wearable sensors for sports, and training are some other factors that are expected to drive the growth of this market.


The main challenge for the market is introducing such devices that can be integrated with maximum devices to increase the usage and efficiency. The high cost makes the devices unaffordable to many and thus is a major challenge for this market. The lack of government initiatives is not so modern countries have made their impenetrable due to less demand, and thus overcoming it will be difficult in the future.

Covid 19 Impact

Covid 19 has impacted the market in both ways. The lack of sports and training activities due to lockdown negatively affected the demand of the wearable sensors. The lockdown resulted in transportation problems and thus negatively affecting the supply of sensors. The covid 19 affects the people most with cardiovascular problems, and thus wearable sensors can help monitor the heart and protect from any potential fatal cardiac arrest. Thus the covid 19 has positively impacted the market in this way. The increased awareness to maintain and monitor the body vitals has also increased the prospects of these sensors in the future.

Segment Analysis

Enterprise and Industrial Applications

Consumer application had the highest revenue share in 2019 with a good projected rate during the forecast period. The large variety of applications which can be catered by these devices simultaneously has made this sub-segment successful. Daily work like setting reminders, reading messages, sending messages, and taking calls are some of the general features in a smartwatch.

Healthcare applications are expected to grow fastest during the forecast period.  Measuring BP, Heart Rate, Calorie Intake, Calorie burned, and others are a few of the diverse functions that can be performed by smart sensors.

Regional Analysis

North America accounted for the largest share of the infusion pumps market in 2019, with a good growth rate in the future. The main contributing factors are the high adoption of specialty infusion pumps for the treatment of chronic diseases and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases along with the rising geriatric population. The development of technology will further boost the hold of the region.

Europe had the second largest market share due to increasing awareness among people about the benefits of these sensors in our day to day life and for health purposes. A large number of dominant players in this region will ensure the growth rate.

Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest rate among all regions. The major reasons are the increasing popularity of these sensors due to increasing awareness and a high population in countries like India and China, which control market growth. There is a huge potential of the market here, and this is going to be closely monitored.
