Fact.MR’s recent study reveals that the global wearable cameras market is set to surpass a valuation of US$ 9,120 Mn, by 2022, reflecting a robust CAGR during the forecast period (2017-2022). Demand for wearable cameras has escalated due to the increasing popularity of various adventure sports such as mountain biking, hiking, skiing, sky diving, and trekking among others. People who participate in these sports activities use wearable cameras for live streaming and recording their experience. Moreover, the growth of the travel and tourism sector is also reflecting favourably on the global market for wearable cameras. Broadcasting organisations are rapidly incorporating wearable cameras for live telecast of sporting events in order to offer player’s infield viewpoint or perspective to viewers. Wearable cameras are mounted on players during the game that stream the real time incidences happening with the player. Owing to their high performance and efficiency, military application of wearable cameras have also increased of late. However, most wearable cameras have fragile components that remain highly expensive, which to an extent is hampering their sales.
