According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, more than a half-billion wearables were sold worldwide for the first time ever in 2020.

TWS Bluetooth earbuds and smartwatches from Apple, Xiaomi and others were among the main drivers of wearables growth.

Steven Waltzer, Senior Analyst at Strategy Analytics, said, “We estimate global wearable sales grew a healthy 37 percent from 384 million units in 2019 to a record 527 million last year in 2020. This is the first time ever that global wearable sales have topped the half-billion level.”

Ville Ukonaho, Associate Director at Strategy Analytics, added, “Earwear and wristwear together accounted for 98 percent of all wearables sold worldwide in 2020. TWS Bluetooth earbuds and smartwatches, such as Apple AirPods or Xiaomi Mi Watch, are the big two categories driving wearables growth today.”
