Need for smarter and smaller sensors will dominate the global body sensor market between 2017 and 2022. Thus, a number of wearable devices and an intense research and development environment would mark the forecast period, especially in the field of Internet of Things, Augmented Reality and Man-to-machine interactions.
This is primarily due to rise in ageing population. As per World Health Organization Statistics, between 2015 and 2050, the population of people over 60 years will be up to 22% from 12%, nearly doubling over the period. Besides, an increase in fitness will also lead to growth in global body sensor market owing to a need to measure heart rate, pulse, oxygen levels etc. The ubiquity of smartphones facilitates the growth of body sensors market further. It is important to note here that not only can these sensors be used in smartphones but they can also be mounted on the body or planted inside it. Few can also be placed on clothes and bags.As per a Transparency Market Research report the market will grow at a stellar CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate). It is predicted to take up the worth of the market considerably.

On the another hand, as rising use of connected devices that involve body sensors and the data accumulated through body sensors could create negative impact on individuals’ privacy, leading to regulatory issues, the uptake of a variety of devices could be hindered to a certain degree.. Nevertheless, despite the purview of these negative factors, there are still new prospects seen regarding the better use of body sensors, where opportunities can be met and obstacles can be curtailed.
