[NOT WEARING OUT] Wearables market is skewing older

The smart wearables market is growing older, according to the latest research by eMarketer. Close to a third of smart wearable users will be over age 55 by 2026 – close to double the number of users in 2019. "In the next three years," predicts Chief Analyst Yoram Wurmser, "users ages 45 and older will gain share; the older the demographic, the faster the growth."

Wurmser adds, "The penetration rate for the adult population overall will be 31.6% in 2023, leaving a lot of room for growth even in younger age groups. But the biggest opportunity for attracting new and more engaged users lies with older consumers."
