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

2016 was a year for companies to realign, reassess, and reconfigure themselves, and this resulted in slower year-over-year growth for the wearables market. 2017 will see the start of what those changes are, and we look forward to second- and third-generation products that answer some of their predecessors' shortcomings, new vendors and products coming to market, and an overall warming from end users to wearables as a whole. Layer on top of that the launch of cellular-connected devices and more applications, and the market is set for double-digit growth for the next several years.
