All the above sections, by product, by vertical or by regions, evaluate the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Wearable Computing Devices market for the period 2014 –2020. We have considered 2014 as the base year and provide data for the trailing 12 months.
To calculate the Wearable Computing Devices market size, we have considered revenue generated from the sale of wearable computing devices and related platforms. The forecast presented here assesses the total revenue by both Value and Volume across the Wearable Computing Devices market. In order to offer an accurate forecast, we started by sizing the current market, which forms the basis of how the Wearable Computing Devices market will develop in the future.
Given the characteristics of the market, we triangulated the outcome of three different types of analyses, based on supply side, consumer spending and economic envelope. However, forecasting the market in terms of various wearable computing devices, verticals uptake and regions is more a matter of quantifying expectations and identifying opportunities rather than rationalising them after the forecast has been completed.
In addition, it is imperative to note that in an ever-fluctuating global economy, we not only conduct forecasts in terms of CAGR, but also analyse on the basis of key parameters such as year-on-year (Y-o-Y) growth to understand the predictability of the market and to identify the right opportunities across the Wearable Computing Devices market.
As previously highlighted, the Wearable Computing Devices market is split into a number of sub categories. All the Wearable Computing Devices sub-categories in terms of product, regions and verticals are analysed in terms of Basis Point Share (BPS) to understand individual segments’ relative contributions to market growth. This detailed level of information is important for the identification of various key trends of the Wearable Computing Devices market.
Also, another key feature of this report is the analysis of all key Wearable Computing Devices segments, sub-segments, regional adoption and verticals revenue forecast in terms of absolute dollar. This is traditionally overlooked while forecasting the market. However, absolute dollar opportunity is critical in assessing the level of opportunity that a provider can look to achieve, as well as to identify potential resources from a sales and delivery perspective in the Wearable Computing Devices market.
