A special type of microchip for smartwatches is known as a “smartwatch chip”. They are used to operate and power devices. Smartwatch chips are important because they improve the performance and efficiency of smartwatches.
NEW YORK, Feb. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report, “Global Smartwatch Chips Market Size, Share & Industry Trends Analysis Report By Application, By Type, By Regional Outlook and Forecast, 2022 – 2028” – https://www.reportlinker.com/p06422692/?utm_source=GNW
A smartwatch is a wearable computer that takes on the dimensions of a watch. Modern smartwatches have a touchscreen interface for everyday use.
The device is operated via an app on a smartphone and telemetry data is collected for purposes such as long-term biomonitoring. While earlier versions could perform simple functions such as math, digitally telling the time, translating, and playing games, today’s smartwatches have more features similar to smartphones, such as mobile applications, a mobile operating system, and WiFi/Bluetooth connectivity.
With FM radio and Bluetooth headset playback of digital music and video files, multiple smartwatches double as portable media players. Some variants, called watch phones (or phone watches), include cellular capabilities, including calls. Although internal technology varies, most feature an electronic visual display, usually an OLED or backlit LCD.
To use less power, some people use transflective or electronic paper. Typically, they are powered by a lithium-ion battery. Digital cameras, accelerometers, pedometers, thermometers, heart rate monitors, altimeters, compasses, barometers, GPS receivers, miniature speakers, and microSD cards are peripherals. Many other types of computers also recognize microSD cards as storage devices.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Companies that rely heavily on Chinese imports face several obstacles and failures. The tech sector has been the most disrupted globally due to supply chain delays and reduced manufacturing capacity due to enforced lockdowns and other restrictions in affected countries. Online sellers also needed help to ship their goods efficiently. The biggest online companies needed help to deal with this situation. In addition, the COVID-19 situation has forced several smartwatch manufacturers to shut down their production to comply with government regulations. This disruption in business activities is negatively impacting the revenue flow of the market. All of these have had a significant negative impact on the smartwatch chip market in the early pandemic era.
market growth factors
Increasing popularity of smartwatches among athletes
With the rapid increase in internet connection and digitization, the demand for wireless devices is increasing. Some of the key applications, which are crucial components of smart wireless fitness equipment and are expected to meet the top consumer needs, include physical activity monitoring and measurement, environmental sensing, real-time data collection, and communication. The watch can be quickly connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth or wireless communication. The athlete or any consumer can complete their daily tasks with this help. Therefore, increasing demand for wireless fitness and sports devices is a key factor supporting the global watch chip market.
Increasing use of smartwatches for continuous health monitoring
The most valuable component of wearable technology was health monitoring. It benefits fitness enthusiasts by giving them the health metrics they need, but it also benefits patients by giving them information about their illnesses. Fitness tracker shipments have increased as people become more concerned about their health. Each wristwatch has a fitness tracker, which adds to their growing appeal as they offer multiple ways to track different health indicators. The use of smartwatches for health monitoring has increased because of these benefits. It is expected that the demand for smartwatch processors will continue to increase in the coming years due to this surge in smartwatch usage.
Market Inhibiting Factors
The cost of smartwatches is high
Due to the precision required for the design and development as well as the raw materials, a high level of expertise and a large initial investment are required. Due to the integration of multiple devices, including sensors, screens, and other components into a tiny, compact device, smartwatches have complicated circuit layouts. The device consists of several tiny semiconductor components with a core diameter of 10 microns. Design professionals struggle to connect many components into a single device because control ICs are only a few hundred nanometers in size. During the forecast period, this is expected to curb the growth of the smart watch chips market.
According to the type, the smartwatch chip market is divided into 32-bit, 64-bit and others. In 2021, the 32-bit segment showed the significant revenue share in the market. The term “32-bit” is used in the computer industry to describe a data type that can hold up to 4 GB of data. It plays a significant role in the smartwatch chip market as it stores data about the user and their actions, including heart rate, number of steps taken, etc. During the projected period, the category is expected to grow second fastest.
Based on application, smart watch chip market is segmented into Android system, iOS system and Others. In 2021, the iOS system segment held the highest revenue share in the smart watch chips market. The increased connection rate of Apple smartwatches to its base of one billion iPhone users can be blamed for the dominance of the IOS watch market.
Based on region, the smart watch chips market is categorized into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and LAMEA. The North America region accounted for the largest share of sales in 2021. The market is expected to develop significantly over the next few years and maintain its leadership position throughout. The development of the semiconductor sector and well-known companies such as Microchip Technology Inc., Analog Devices, Inc., Broadcom, etc. promote the development of the segment.
