We are at the early stage of a fundamental shift that is completely transformational and is driving us towards smart connected products in the Internet of Things. In last few years, the world has witnessed series of technological innovations that make the wearable computing both technically and commercially feasible today. One of the most enabling technological advancement is the emergence of a host of wireless connectivity such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth smart etc. Convergence of market forces and parallel innovation enabling technologies has led to the present state of the industry, where we are seeing a new device being launched in the market at an unprecedented rate.
What we have seen so far is nothing but the tip of the iceberg. The upcoming wave of wearable or internet connected devices for the body is likely to disrupt number of industries such as fitness and wellness, lifestyle computing, and gaming among others.  In the absence of compelling value proposition to the end-users, most of the first generation wearable product in the market failed to make substantial impact.  Some of the challenges that these devices faced include expensive products, privacy concerns, look and feel and related health risk. 
With the evolution of second generation devices, the cost is expected to come down substantially for the high-end devices. Tear-down analysis of these devices suggest that the cost of component ranges anywhere between 15-30% of these products. With new product development and launches the cost is expected to substantially fall in the coming years. Also the look and feel of the devices has improved to a better acceptance rate among the end-user. Further advancement is expected in the design and form factor reduction of these devices as more established technology players such as Apple, Google, Intel etc. launch their product in the market.
The global wearable product market worth was over $1.7 billion in 2013 and is expected to grow over $94 billion by 2024, with a promising CAGR of 39.11% from 2014 to 2024. Hand-worn products accounted for the largest market share of $924 million in 2013, while head-worn products contributed the least to the market share in terms of revenue. However, head-worn products are identified as the fastest growing product type, and are expected to grow at a CAGR of 53.32 % from 2014 to 2024. 
North America has been the single largest contributor to the overall revenue in the industry and is expected to continue its dominance in 2014 through 2024, growing at an estimated CAGR of 38.82% during the same period. EMEA is expected to exhibit sustained growth and will lose its market share. APAC is poised to grow at the highest rate year-on-year to emerge as the second largest revenue generator by 2024.
