The drive for increased sensor capabilities continued in 2015. IHS has carefully tracked the trend for sensor use in wearables in particular which are added to the report this year to complement the existing mobile handset and tablet analysis. This report covers environment sensors (gas, humidity and ultraviolet) and optical health sensors (heart rate, blood pressure and blood glucose).
Each product has unit, revenue and average selling price forecasts to 2020 for mobile handsets and wearables. In addition to the data, the market is covered qualitatively considering use cases, challenges and technologies in depth.
This December 2015 report was researched thoroughly with many interviews with both sensor suppliers and OEMs, whose perspective is also included in the report. The report contains detailed analysis of the suppliers participating in the market.
