Wearables

The wearables market exploded in 2014, recording a 700 percent year-over-year increase. Analysts from investment bank Piper Jaffray expect wearable shipments to grow from 21 million units in 2014 to 150 million units in 2019, with a total target market of 1.08 billion people worldwide.

However, the future of wearables isn’t just about making mobile apps available on a different screen. It provides developers an opportunity to deliver new solutions in a completely unique way, and solve problems that can’t be solved in any other form. In fact, the growth trajectory of wearables mimics the growth of tablets just a few years ago. With continued growth in 2016, expect exciting things to happen with wearable technology.

There are already well over two billion smartphone users around the world and that number just keeps growing. Smartphones, tablets, wearables, environmental sensors, AI and other emerging mobile technologies are fueling the biggest tech revolution since the creation of the PC and Internet. All of which are dramatically reshaping our world. Chances are, 2016 will be more exciting for both entrepreneurs and consumers than we can possibly imagine. In this slideshow, Appster has identified emerging trends that will likely dominate mobile for the coming year.
