This IDC study provides a five-year forecast for the U.S. wearable computing device installed base."The shifting and slowly growing appetite for different wearables will grow the installed base in the years to come," says Ramon T. Llamas, research director for IDC's Wearables team. "In the beginning, wristbands drove the market forward, and then it was smartwatches, and now it is earwear. At the same time, the use cases and user experiences have clearly evolved from the first-generation devices, effectively adding more devices to the installed base. This sets up the market for continued growth, both with new users and current users looking for replacement devices."
