Smart Glasses – Thematic Research

The public perception of smart glasses has struggled to recover from the high-profile failure of Google Glass in 2014. However, the recent launch of Amazon Echo Frames and Google’s purchase of smart glasses maker North in June 2020 suggests Big Tech still sees potential in the technology as a consumer product. Meanwhile, smart glasses have also begun to carve out a niche as a business tool.

Scope

This report provides an overview of the smart glasses theme.

It identifies the key trends impacting growth of the theme over the next 12 to 24 months, split into three categories: technology trends, macroeconomic trends, and regulatory trends.

It includes a comprehensive industry analysis, including up-to-date forecasts for global smart glasses revenues and shipments to 2030.

The detailed value chain shows where smart glasses fit into the broader Internet of Things ecosystem.

Key Highlights

There is little to choose between the consumer and enterprise smart glasses segments when it comes to volume of shipments, but the enterprise market generates far greater revenue, equivalent to 80% of the total market in 2019. Enterprise devices cost significantly more than their consumer counterparts, as they typically feature industry-specific capabilities.

Reasons to Buy

With wide-ranging applications, from music streaming to industrial operations, smart glasses have the potential to drive a major change in the way we interact with the world, but the technology is in the early stages of development. This report tells you everything you need to know about smart glasses, identifies the leading vendors (as well as those that are lagging behind), and includes new forecasts showing the impact of COVID-19 on sales of these devices.
