Wearables in enterprise and industrial environments continue to see high levels of interest and market momentum, as companies across a wide variety of industry sectors conduct trials with a diverse set of devices across multiple use cases. In terms of unit volumes and revenue, enterprise and industrial wearables are still a very small portion of the overall market, although their share of the total market is expected to grow over time.

This 2016 update to Tractica’s enterprise and industrial wearables research highlights the latest trends in enterprise and industrial wearables activity since our first report on the subject was published in 2015. Compared to 2015, the market is moving into a quieter phase, with the focus shifting from public announcements to the hard work that needs to be done behind the scenes to get wearables rolled out at commercial scale. Fitness trackers are seeing large-scale adoption in corporate wellness programs, smart glasses are continuing to experience a growth in trial activity with pilots converting to commercial deployments, and smart watches like the Apple Watch are beginning to gain greater attention from enterprise-focused app developers. Innovative new use cases are also emerging, including such diverse examples as wearable cameras in retail settings, smart glasses as an omnichannel sales enabler, and baseball caps being used to track fatigue of workers at mining sites.
