Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/mcfcr9/wearable) has announced the addition of the "Wearable Technology: Analysis of Devices, Services and Applications" report to their offering.
Including voice-controlled smart watches, ski goggles that show your speed and location on a piste map - and even a new bra that monitors stress levels, the wearable technology market is on the cusp of becoming a mainstream category.
100s of vendors from all over the world are falling over themselves to gain a foothold in a market which many think will provide the next wave of growth in the personal electronics market. Others see today's wearable technology products as a step towards a future where technology begins to be integrated into the human body, such as contact lenses that contain flexible electronics which is used to display information to the wearer.
With such a bewildering range of products and services already on offer it is clear that some will fall by the wayside, while others will have to be content with a carving out a niche. But it is equally clear that some of what we can see today will grow into mainstream, global product categories - and it is this tantalising possibility that is energising the market today.
Over the last 20 years, mobile device and component vendors have spent 100s of billions of dollars on R&D and capital investments. The result of this is that wearable technology vendors are now feasting on a lavish smorgasbord of high-performance, miniature electronics components, software technologies and associated online services that provide almost endless possibilities - hence the recent explosion is interest in the wearable technology market.
This report profiles 150 of the latest products and services within the wearable technology field. The report also segments the wearables market and offers deep insights into how these various market segments will develop in the coming years. The report also contains market forecasts for the wearable technology market.
