Early adoption from verticals such as industrial, field services, oil & gas and healthcare/ medical to drive growth for enterprise wearable devices
SAN ANTONIO, TX 23 JUNE 2015: Compass Intelligence announced today the release of two new reports that cover the emerging enterprise wearables market. Reports include Enterprise Wearables Market: 2Q 2015 Survey Results & Analysis and US Enterprise Wearables Market: 5-Year Forecast, 2014-2019, both available on compassintelligence.com. Wearable devices are proving to be the defining technology of 2015. The initial trickle of niche devices has turned into a steady stream with a tidal wave expected over the next five years. Growth for wearables in the enterprise will be driven by early adoption from verticals such as industrial, field services, oil & gas and healthcare. In addition, as employers focus more on employee health & wellness, Compass Intelligence anticipates an increase in fitness or wellness-based wearable devices to be adopted to incorporate into existing corporate wellness programs. The terms wearable technology , wearable devices , and wearables all refer to electronic technologies or computers that are incorporated into items of clothing and accessories, which can comfortably be worn on the body including implantables. These wearable devices can perform many of the same computing tasks as mobile phones and laptop computers.
