DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Category Creation and Digital Ecosystems in Wearable Technology” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
This approximately 25,000-word (99 pages) report provides a well-organized thematic analysis of the statements and activities of wearable technology companies.
It deconstructs the business concepts of category creation and digital ecosystems, providing a framework that informs business innovation and investments in new areas.
The launch of Apple’s streaming service and the recently declared pivot by Facebook, now a subsidiary of Meta Platforms, increased the importance of an up-to-date and forward-thinking understanding of hardware-supported digital worlds. Additionally, the pandemic has made health/wellness-supporting tools more relevant.
New or evolving categories might initially allow for higher prices, either to reflect the novelty or the newfound benefit that novelty represents, such as increased convenience or even social status. This is the case with wearable technologies.
Through these premiums or sheer volume, category-creating businesses often achieve faster revenue growth, as well as higher valuations, especially if they actively build buzz or rewrite narratives.
However, the long-term consumer interest in maintaining pricey subscriptions that add value to wearable technology use is unclear and possibly overestimated.
The report is structured as follows:
- Category Creation in Wearable Technologies: Category creation, in the form of a new product, business model, or combination of both, is often misunderstood. This section deconstructs the approaches that lead to product/market fit and value-creating partnerships.
- Digital Ecosystems and Data in Wearable Technologies: Market leaders in wearables tend to view their devices as both contributing to and deriving value from broader digital ecosystems. Dominant multinational technology companies have a clear interest in overseeing the construction, development, and legal framework of ecosystems that favorably position their brands, while enabling direct services and partnerships. Innovators and investors alike are shifting their focus to ecosystems, and this section provides valuable insights for them.
- Management, Culture, and Recruitment in Wearable Startups or Business Units: Remote-first workplaces might help players of all sizes to maintain resilience. Incubators or “skunkworks” projects might help larger companies to maintain relevance by looking ahead or thinking differently. These could be remote workplaces as well, or hybrid. This section examines the operational approaches that may lead to innovation-supporting cultures.
