Experts of the analytical company IDC summed up the results of the fourth quarter of last year and the whole year in the market of wearable electronic devices. According to their calculations, 153.5 million devices were sold in the last quarter, and 444.7 million devices were sold for the whole year. These values ​​correspond to annualized growth of 27.2% and 28.4%, respectively.

While market growth in the fourth quarter has traditionally been driven by a seasonal pickup in demand driven by new models and lower prices, analysts said the strong full-year growth was driven by reallocation of costs. Finding themselves in isolation, consumers deprived of their usual entertainment began to spend more on electronics. In addition, many wearable devices help to monitor the physical condition, which could not fail to draw attention to them in a pandemic.

Apple is the leader in the fourth quarter. The share of this company has not changed compared to the same period last year and is 36.2%. The share of the second largest Xiaomi company decreased from 10.6% to 8.8%. Samsung is in third place. The share of the South Korean manufacturer decreased over the year from 9.0% to 8.5%. The top five also include Huawei and BoAt, which hold 6.7% and 3.5% of the market, respectively.

At the end of the year, the first place is also occupied by Apple, which was able to increase its share compared to 2019 – from 32.2% to 34.1%. The second place is taken by Xiaomi, whose share decreased from 12.0% to 11.4%. But then the rating for the year differs from the quarterly. The third place is taken by Huawei, which was able to increase its share from 8.3% to 9.8%. It was followed by Samsung, whose share decreased from 9.1% to 9.0%. Fitbit closes the top five. Fitbit’s share for the year decreased from 4.6% to 2.9%.

Headphones are the largest category of wearable devices. The dynamics of the distribution of the market by category during the year is shown in the diagram. There is also a graph showing the change in the average selling price.
