Smartwatch Revenues Decline in 2016, Set for 2017 Rebound

by Steven Waltzer | 5月 01, 2017

According to our WDE (Wearables) service, global smartwatch revenues declined for the first time ever by -2% in 2016, as the category struggled to take hold among mainstream consumers. We expect a bounce-back in 2017 however, as Android Wear models from traditional wristwatch players begin to compete alongside the tech giants and expand the retail presence for smartwatches.  North America, Western Europe, China and developed Asia will be the leading territories to target for volume and value. Our extensive report - available to clients here - forecasts global smartwatch revenues, for 88 countries worldwide, from 2012 to 2022.
