What’s Driving High Demand for Wearable Air Conditioner across Regions?

“Technological advancement enable the growth of wearable air conditioner”

The utilization of technologically advanced products is growing rapidly throughout the world as Gen Z's interest in them rises. The tech sector is expected to be worth $5 trillion by the end of 2021, with the US tech market having a value of $1.6 trillion. High-tech accessories called wearable air conditioners are worn around the wrist, shoulders, or neck to help control a user's body temperature.

These devices use two distinct types of technology, the first is an electronic fan that blows air around the face and neck. The second innovation is superconductors. They consist of an aluminum plate that comes into touch with the skin on the exterior and a thermoelectric chip that is housed inside the AC gadget.

These chips efficiently transport heat back and forth owing to the peltier effect, which means the superconductor in a wearable AC simultaneously takes heat away from the body while remaining chilly. Customers get a relaxing sensation that gradually spreads down their backs, putting them at ease.

Sales of wearable air conditioners are anticipated to rise consistently over time due to the aforementioned factors as well as the rapidly expanding technology industry. Thus, the high demand for smart gadgets makes the wearable air conditioner much more popular worldwide and thus paving the demand for the same.

Consumers now have more disposable income and spending power

Wearable air conditioner sales have been impacted by changes in per-capita disposable income because they are seen as luxury goods. Consumers typically spend more money on luxuries when per capita disposable income increases. The industry may benefit in the next years from rising per-capita disposable income. This can be linked to consumers with middle- and low-income levels having more disposable income.

Due to the devices' affordable price, lower-income populations can also use them. Sales are being boosted by a new consumer segment that has arisen in the middle class as a result of the rise in disposable money. The prosperity of this sector depends on active consumer spending.

People are more inclined to utilize wearable air conditioners because of their affordability even if they are difficult to access in many places and are only sold online. The aforementioned factors are anticipated to fuel the market because the industry depends on rising consumer disposable income. Therefore, increasing disposable income makes the high demand for advanced air conditioner.

Sony is one of the well-known businesses that has currently introduced wearable air conditioners. However, because the concept is novel, it is anticipated that other recent entrants would quickly adopt it in order to gain a competitive advantage.

New enterprises will strive to provide cost advantages, economies of scale, and a range of offerings in order to draw in a wider customer base. The overflow of investments from these players will increase market risk and decrease brand loyalty in the industry. Companies' strategies affect the market's overall competitiveness and make it a high-risk environment for participants.
