Innovation Drives Growth of Wearable Sensors
T
he market for wearable sensors is expanding,
says market research firm,
IDTechEx. More people than ever before
are turning to wearable sensors to monitor
their activity levels. However, despite
its origin in simple step counting, the market
for wearable sensors is expanding into
the more complex arena of health monitoring.
Innovations in wearable sensor
technology are expanding the envelope
of biometrics accessible through watches
and skin patches, says Tess Skyrme, technology
analyst. This not only seeks to address
the growing demand for remote patient
monitoring
and
decentralized
clinical
trials but also the rising expectations
of the general consumer. This includes
easier access to health data but extends
further to sensor integration into
headsets and accessories for immersive
experiences in the metaverse, she says.
The latest wearable sensors report from
Expanding production capacity
To meet your medical device needs
For over 75 years, MICRO has continually
expanded our capabilities in order to provide
our customers with the finest in full service
Medical Device contract manufacturing.
The latest addition to our global footprint
is a newly facilitated 32,000 sq. ft. location
in Costa Rica featuring clean room
assembly and light manufacturing.
This recently added piece of the puzzle will
continue to allow us to fulfill our Vision:
" To Help Our Customers Save Lives "
IDTechEx, " Wearable Sensors 2023-2033, "
breaks down the complex landscape of
sensor types, biometrics, and form factors.
This includes inertial measurement units,
optical sensors, and chemical sensors for
vital signs, stress, sleep, and even brain activity.
IDTechEx highlights the key opportunities
and challenges for each sensor
type to achieve commercial success across
the next 10 years.
For example, the report notes that motion
sensing hardware is well established,
with accelerometers integrated into almost
every wearable. Therefore, as profit
margins for manufacturers diminish with
commoditization, expanding the application
space is crucial to maintain growth.
According to the report, sensor developers
are interested in pushing the
boundaries of what can be measured
noninvasively with light - whether it be
through new software to analyze photoplethysmography
(PPG) signals or new
hardware for spectroscopy. Multiple companies
are competing to lead in the commercialization
of wearable blood pressure,
with others setting their sights on
ambitious clinic on the wrist devices.
The report also notes that incorporating
conductive materials into wearable
technology has led to development of a
variety of wearables sensors including
wet electrodes stuck on the skin to measure
the heart, dry electrodes in headphones
to analyze brain signals, and microneedles
within skin patches to quantify
muscle movements.
The main drivers identified for growth
are digital health and remote patient
monitoring, extended reality and the
metaverse, and performance analytics of
athletes and sports people. All of these
meta-trends and more are discussed in
this report.
