This region-based market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the classroom wearables technology market in the US by end user (higher education institutions and K-12 schools) and by product (wrist-worn equipment, headgear, and others). The key leading vendors in the market are Apple, Google, Microsoft, and Samsung.

Classroom wearables technology market overview in the US

According to classroom wearables technology market report, the market in the US will grow profoundly at a CAGR of nearly 46% by 2020. Wearable devices come in a wide array of shapes and sizes and have completely changed the way data is communicated, collected, and analyzed. In the US, factors such as the mass adoption of technological innovations like tablets and learning management systems (LMSs) by educational institutions will facilitate the penetration of wearable technology in classrooms. As an educational tool, wearable technology provides opportunities for students to enhance their learning and creative skills. Technologies like the Oculus Rift, which is a virtual reality device, helps students and teachers to get involved in experiential learning. Since these technologies help students to enhance their overall learning experience, their demand among end users in the educational sector will increase significantly over the next few years.

An important trend that will impel the prospects for growth in this market is the decreasing prices of wearable devices. Recently, it has been observed that the cost per function of ICs has been declining rapidly. This reduction in the cost of ICs has had a positive impact on the global system on chip (SoC) market, which in turn has reduced the price of wearable devices. This significant decline in the prices of wearable devices will augment its adoption rate among education institutions, which typically buy devices in bulk quantities.

Segmentation by product and analysis of the classroom wearables technology market in the US

  • Wrist-worn equipment
  • Headgear

Based on the classroom wearables technology market report, analysts have estimated the wrist-worn equipment product segment to account for more than 44% of the total market share by 2020. This product segment includes devices like the Apple Watch, Samsung smart watches, and fitness tracker bands that are offered by Fitbit and Garmin. Factors such as the increasing adoption of wrist-worn equipment by students taking up physical education classes and sports activities will lead to the strong growth of this market segment during the estimated period.

End-user segmentation of the classroom wearables technology market in the US

  • Higher education institutions
  • K-12 schools

The higher education institutions segment currently dominates this market and is envisaged to retain its hold over the market until 2020 owing to the large-scale adoption of smartphones, tablets, laptops, and Chromebooks by institutions offering higher education courses. Comprehensive market research carried out by the analysts at Technavio has shown that this end-user segment will grow significantly at a CAGR of around 45% by 2020.
