Military wearable market dynamics:Driver: miniature trend in sensors:

ortable devices such as bracelets, body clothes, and glasses are increasingly used in healthcare and consumers. Over time, portable product technology has steadily improved and devices are getting smaller. According to the Irish Times (2015), the trend in the portable ecosystem is slowly shifting from "portable" to "wearable" and, in the next decade, portable devices will be "disappearing". This implies that key players in the portable ecosystem, such as Fitbit, Apple, and Garmin, are constantly striving to deliver cutting-edge innovations in portable products (such as portable devices with maximum functionality and tiny size).

The miniaturization of sensors using microelectronics was essential in the development of portable devices. One of the main obstacles in the adoption of sensing technology, especially for portable electronics, is the size of the sensors. The hardware components collect the physiological and motion data suitable for long-term control applications. The growing use of sensors based on MEMS, nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS), and CMOS technologies is also another important market.


Lack of common standards and interoperability issues

In the current scenario, there are many smart devices connected to the Internet on the market and the number is growing rapidly. Standardization is the main requirement to allow effective communication of sensor information and sensor data. Some companies have created standards for sensory communication. For example, OGC's Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) standards meet the requirement for better communication between sensors in the most complex and very simple applications. SWE standards make it easy to integrate this information into thousands of geospatial applications that implement OGC or other standards. 

The lack of common standards for sensory communication also creates interoperability problems. Interoperability and the easy exchange of information between connected devices are crucial to the growth of a portable ecosystem. Currently, the technical and market scenarios for portable technology are not very satisfactory in terms of architectural solutions or universal standards to solve the issue of interoperability. To achieve this, efforts such as understanding the role of security and its importance will be required for companies, organizations, and developers for a considerable time. Therefore, the lack of common standards and interoperability problems limits the growth of the general portable sensor market.


increase in the number of connected devices

In the last five years, significant changes have taken place in the global internet penetration. Almost a third of the world's population uses the internet now, with higher bandwidth. This has increased the number of smart devices internet-enabled in developing countries. In 2014, the global use of smartphones grew at a rate of about 25%. Smartphones are among the mobile devices widely used in the portable ecosystem and are used primarily to collect and track health and fitness data for groups aged 0 to 9 and 60 and over. Besides, portable technology makes up an important segment of platforms, such as IoT and M2M, and these platforms are the main factors for the increase in the number of connected devices globally.

Problem: Technical problems with hardware and software

As with many new technologies integrated into a system, portable devices witness performance problems related to hardware and software that can hinder their widespread adoption. A common concern the user faces is waterproofing, as sweating or washing can create harmful moisture for portable electronic components. Also, the compact size of the devices can result in limited electrical reserves or small screens and screens. Some of the features related to the weapons crisis have already been published on the market; For example, in 2011, Jawbone's UP product encountered board problems that affected retrieval, data collection, and sometimes overall function. Thus, the factor linked to the technical difficulty of hardware and software in portable devices is a major challenge for the growth of the market of portable sensors.
