The success in sales of the Apple Watch will lead the smartwatch and wearables industry to grow up to 15% in this year 2019, with respect to the previous year. An absolutely bestial growth. This is indicated by the data recently collected by the IDC firm.
The predictions of IDC have increased the sensations that the market analysis of the eMarketer company gave us. An analytical company that, at the end of 2018, suggested that the sale of smartwatches would grow by 10% in 2019.
Meanwhile, it is estimated that sales of Apple Watch will grow 40% during 2019. The truth is that the popularity of the smartwatch of the company of the bitten apple is increasing considerably in recent years. But to increase sales by 40% Apple would need to expand its facilities globally.
The Apple Watch will help increase the sale of smartwatches
According to IDC, the industry of the wearables market will grow by 15.3% in 2019. This would involve the sale of 198.5 million units of smartwatches, health monitoring wristbands, and smart wizards.
Likewise, the data suggest that the use and sale of wearables will increase to 279 million units by the year 2023.

As “Clothing”, IDC refers to clothing and accessories that include technology and that allow connection with an unlimited number of services such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, contactless payments, electrocardiograms, etc.
“WEARABLES CAN HELP ACCELERATE THE TRANSFORMATION OF DIGITAL COMPANIES BY TRANSMITTING INFORMATION THAT ALLOWS TASKS TO BE COMPLETED MORE QUICKLY.”
However, smartwatches belong to the dominant sector in the wearables category. In fact, smartwatches seized a total of 44.2% of wearables sales throughout the year 2018, even though they are the most expensive devices in the category.
The Apple Watch will continue to be the sales leader, one more year
Currently, the different Apple Watch models of the bitten apple company make up 44.2% of the wearables market. But IDC says that this figure will continue to grow, specifically up to 45.6% in 2019. And, in fact, will continue to rise to 47.1% in 2023.
Undoubtedly, Apple’s smartwatch will lead the sales of wearables as it has done regularly and consistently for years.
“SMARTWATCHES ACCOUNTED FOR 44.2% OF THE ENTIRE WEARABLES MARKET IN 2018 AND IT IS ESTIMATED THAT THEIR SHARE WILL GROW TO REACH 47.1% IN 2023.”
The increase in sales of Apple Watch has much merit. Because its success has been growing little by little despite the competition from Android and other manufacturers that have been making their way into the market.
In addition, IDC also anticipates that wireless headphones will have good growth during 2019. It will not happen in the same way with smart wristbands, which will continue to grow but at a much slower pace.
As for smartphones, IDC’s analysis suggests that sales will have figures of 90.6 million units in 2019.

“THE GROWTH OF INTELLIGENT ASSISTANTS IN WEARABLES, BOTH IN WRISTBANDS AND IN HEADPHONES, IS A TREND THAT IS WORTH OBSERVING.”
In addition, wearables not only help us connect with other people and receive information of interest … but also have great progress in monitoring health, exercise and even the quality of sleep.

There will come a point at which smart watches, smart wristbands, and why not, also wireless headphones will need to evolve to overcome the user experience of smartphones. It seems the natural process of the evolution of technology. Will they replace wearables to smartphones? Everything seems to indicate yes, but for this, we will need to invest in other development paths related to flexible touch screens, projectors, cameras, and a long etcetera.
