Fitnessband Sales Set to Shrink

by Neil Mawston | Jul 16, 2021

New research from our Wearables service predicts global fitnessband sales grew +2% in 2020, but they will dip -2% in 2021.

Demand for Fitbit, Xiaomi Mi Band and other fitness-led wristbands increased during the Covid pandemic of 2020, as consumers sought out new ways to monitor their health and wellness during lockdown.

For now, the fitnessband industry is peaking.
