Datamodel Update: Smartglasses Forecast for 88 Countries

by Cliff Raskind | Oct 07, 2015

According to Strategy Analytics' WDE (Wearables) research service, global smartglasses sales are set to double from 2014 to 2015 and growth will hit 110% in 2016.

Relative to strong expectations driven by Google Glass, the smartglasses category today has temporarily stalled. However, Google/Alphabet is known to be reinvigorating its smartglasses efforts with more of an enterprise focus, Microsoft Hololens will be in the hands of Windows 10 developers within weeks and Epson, Vuzix, Atheer Labs and others continue to push the AR envelope. When mass market smartglasses do gain traction in several years Strategy Analytics predicts smartglasses will eventually become the second largest wearables opportunity by volume and value during the 2020s.

North America, Western Europe, China and developed Asia will be the leading regions to target for volume and value. This report forecasts global smartglasses sales, for 88 countries worldwide, from 2012 to 2020. Almost every major country worldwide is covered, including United States, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Russia, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. Our report -- available for clients here -- can be used by hardware vendors, component suppliers, operators, software developers, content developers and other stakeholders to determine the future size and growth rate of the global smartglasses market.
