Connected Sports and Fitness Apparel, Smart Footwear, Fashion Apparel, Baby and Pregnancy Monitors, Heart Rate Monitors, Headbands, Posture Monitors, 3D Trackers, Wrist Devices, Movement Sensors, and Wearable Patches: Market Analysis and Forecasts Smart clothing and body sensors can be considered the ultimate wearables, something that integrates into your life as a garment, footwear, or a sensor device that can track or measure a specific physiological or biometric attribute. Unlike fitness trackers, smart watches, or smart glasses, which have fairly well-defined form factors and use cases, smart clothing and body sensors are seeing a greater degree of experimentation and innovation in use cases. The applications for smart clothing and body sensors span multiple domains including sports, consumer, healthcare, public safety, industrial, and enterprise. The market for smart clothing and body sensors is developing rapidly, although the body sensors market is likely to be larger in the long run due to a wider variety of device types and application markets. Healthcare is expected to be one of the biggest drivers for body sensors, particularly connected wearable patches, but other key application markets will include consumer, sports, enterprise, and industrial. Tractica forecasts that total shipments of smart clothing will grow from 968,000 units in 2015 to 24.8 million units in 2021. Meanwhile, body sensor shipments are expected to increase from 2.7 million in 2015 to 68.0 million units annually by 2021.
