The wearables market in India is witnessing double-digit growth and this trend is expected to continue during the study period, backed by growing affluence of the Indian middle class, increasing awareness toward health products, and other positive factors. The market has several global and Indian players battling out for the immense potential it presents. Fitness trackers dominate the market by volume due to their ease of use and comparatively lower price than other wearables. There has been an increase in demand for smart watches in recent years and this trend will sustain due to the increasing penetration of smartphones and Internet and the availability of easy purchasing options. Smart watches will present a large opportunity by value during the period of this study. Medical devices and other wearables such as smart t-shirts and smart glasses are at a nascent stage. However, the growing need for preventive healthcare will drive the adoption of medical wearables, and the country’s large youth population will show interest towards tech-savvy products like smart t-shirts and glasses.
