Wearable Sensor Market: Drivers & Challenges

Market Driver:

  • Rising Need for Athlete Performance Monitoring

In past ten years, sports industry has grown very fast. Football, Baseball, Cricket, and Basketball changes the sports industry and increases the level of competition in the market. Hence to sustain in the industry athlete and coaches are increasingly use smart wearables to track athlete performance both during athlete selection and training. This will help coaches and selectors to reduce guess work and support their decision making using real data. This will help to any team to predict the outcomes and minimizes the risk. Zephyr launched wearable platform which consists of a compression shirt that can hoist a GPS and a bio-module. This bio-module directly measures heart rate, breathing rate, heart rate variability, posture and impact. Hence, athlete performance monitoring increases the demand of wearable devices with directly increases the demand of wearable sensor market during forecast period.
