The global wearables market reached a new high of 84.5 million devices, up 94.6% from the prior year, during the third quarter of 2019 (3Q19) according to new data from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker. The staggering growth in demand for hearables fueled by new products helped push the wearables market to a new record during the quarter. Hearables alone accounted for almost half the market, followed by wrist bands and smartwatches.

The spread of COVID-19 also had adverse effects on the supply of smart and basic watches as many of these devices share components and resources with smartphones and PCs, which were also impacted during the first quarter of 2020. Despite the decline, a few vendors, such as Huawei, Garmin, and Huami, managed healthy growth thanks to lesser reliance on markets in China and further expansion into the United States, Europe, and other parts of Asia.

“The downward pressure on watches shifts the onus to the latter half of 2020,” said Ramon T. Llamas, research director for IDC’s Wearables Team. “This gives companies the time to refine their products and messaging, and to align those with customer needs. Given the hyper focus on overall health and fitness in today’s climate, vendors would do well to highlight those capabilities, and provide guidance on how to live healthier lives.”

 

Huawei takes Samsung’s crown as world’s No. 1 phone maker too, analysts say No.1 in Wearables

Samsung and Apple held the top spot for years, but Canalys Counterpoint and IDC say the coronavirus pandemic gave the Chinese company the edge.

Huawei shipped more phones worldwide than any other vendor for the first time in 2020’s second quarter, tech market analysts CanalysCounterpoint and IDC reported. It’s the first time in nine years anyone other than Samsung or Apple has been market leader, Canalys said.

The embattled Chinese phone-maker shipped 55.8 million devices, down 5% year on year, compared to Samsung’s 53.7 million smartphones — a 30% fall drop, according to Canalys’ research.
