サマリー

There are three types of innovation: near-term, medium-term, and long-term. Near-term innovation occurs within current market limitations. Medium-term innovation is exemplified by disruption, where solutions enter the market, change the nature of its operation for a short period of time, and then disappear. The transformational innovations that occur in the long-term are those that have the most profound and long-lasting impact. They operate in the present—perhaps still in startup mode—but are hard to spot and even harder to assess.

This report looks at those companies at the forefront of transformational innovation, particularly those that are:

  • younger and less well-known than the incumbents
  • at the technological forefront of their markets
  • developing new business models
  • destabilizing the current market
  • prime acquisition targets

A Glimpse into the Future of Wearable Healthcare: Going Way Beyond Smartwatches and Fitness Trackers
 
Oyster Bay, New York - 30 Aug 2017

The healthcare wearables market accounts for US$6.8 billion of the current US$25 billion wearables market. ABI Research forecasts that Wearable Healthcare, including healthcare devices, sports, fitness, and wellness trackers will continue to dominate the wearables market and will exceed revenues of US$10 billion in 2022.

Healthcare wearables that monitor health conditions, physical performance, and brain activity will move beyond smartwatches and fitness trackers; they will shrink in size and change in form factor type. Unlike today’s bulky health related devices, ultra-thin and ultra-soft sensors with software analytics make next-generation wearables smarter and more useful. 

“As an ultimate form factor of wearables, flexible body-worn sensors are quite an innovation for wearable adoption in healthcare, fitness, and human-machine interface,” says Marina Lu, Senior Analyst at ABI Research. “These sensors can be integrated into a small patch and attached to human skin surface to track vital signs and other biometrics continuously and wirelessly. Some of the implementation examples include electronic tattoos and skin sweat sensors.”

The electronic tattoo developed by Rotex performs many of the typical functions of smart watches and fitness trackers. Not only does it monitor health conditions in real-time, it also provides a different means to control devices as an integral part of IoT. The low cost and disposability of the electronic tattoos further the use cases and value appeal of wearable technology, especially for customers who are price sensitive.

Replacing costly doctor visits and painful lab-based blood tests, non-invasive sweat sensors can measure a set of key biometrics from a single bead of sweat. A few companies are working to capture the sweat sensor market, such as Eccrine System, GraphWear Technologies and Kenzen.

These sensors require flexible components and startup Royole is leading the way. Royole’s plan for mass production of flexible displays and sensors will accelerate the technology adoption for wearables and facilitate more aesthetically-pleasing wearable designs, smaller form factors, and more immersive experiences.

“Health sensors are becoming increasingly commoditized, as they allow continuously physical monitoring with reduced manual intervention and at low cost,” concludes Lu. “While the miniaturized health sensors enable consumers to monitor health conditions by themselves and be aware of their own health care, they also extend to the enterprise market by delivering superior analytics for clinical and medical research. Once privacy and security concerns are addressed and standardization in health communication protocols are put into place, the next-gen of wearable healthcare will be ushered in.” 

These findings are from ABI Research’s Hot Tech Innovators: Wearables report. This report is part of the company’s Wearables, Usables & Expendables research service, which includes research, data, and analyst insights.
