Semiconductors providing wireless connectivity in health and fitness devices are set for solid double-digit growth in 2014 and beyond, spurred in part by the growth of wearable devices, according to IHS Technology.

Shipments in 2014 for wireless semiconductors in health and fitness are projected to be 61.2 million units, up 11% from 55.0 million in 2013. The expected strong expansion in 2014 continues robust growth of 2012 and 2013. Shipments in 2018 are expected to climb to 95.78 million units.

The overall health and fitness market covered by the forecast includes the sports and fitness segment on the one hand, as well as the adjacent market for health and wellness on the other. While overlaps exist between the two segments, there are also subtle differences.

Data and activity sharing by wireless means is more common in sports and fitness, with consumers more prone to disclosing the results of their improving fitness levels. Sharing is not as widespread in health and wellness, where disease management is largely private and carefully guarded by the affected individuals.
