How Plastic Is Transforming The Wearable Tech Industry

Blog Banner

As per latest research, the global Wearable Technology market was worth USD 115.8 billion in 2021. This figure is expected to grow to an astonishing USD 380.5 billion by 2028. The popularity of wearables can be attributed to the convenience it adds to monitoring fitness levels, tracking locations with GPS, and viewing messages. Above all, wearables allow users hands-free operation while being portable, eliminating the need to take the device out of our pocket.

The success and longevity of these devices can be attributed to the plastic made to manufacture them.

Today, watches, clips, bands, and a range of other gadgets are used to count and report on a user’s daily physical activities, from steps walked in a day to heart rates and sleep patterns. However, these wearables have high usage and there are lots of possibilities for damage. Earlier, most users had to abandon their wearables after a few months due to damage caused during aggressive exercising.

Global manufacturers are focused on protecting their pricey wearables from wear and tear and that’s why most wearables are made of plastic. Here is why plastic is the go-to choice for manufacturing wearables:

  1. High scratch-resistance: Since plastic is resistant to scratches, it makes sense to use them to manufacture wearables. This ensures long-lasting aesthetical value for the wearable despite continuous physical activity.
  1. High durability: Plastics are highly durable and long-lasting. This attribute is passed on to wearables that are built with plastics. Plastic wearables are designed to last a lifetime!
  1. Superior flexibility: Plastic is a flexible material and this ensures that it moulds itself to suit the contours of the human body. Users performing high physical activity will find the flexibility of plastics very welcoming.
  1. High water-resistance: Earlier versions of wearables were made with materials that didn’t react well to water. With plastic wearables, users don’t have to worry about the product’s exposure to water and can wear them throughout the day without any fuss.
  1. Low weight: Plastic wearables have negligent weight and are easy to wear and carry around. Most users feel like they are not wearing an activity tracker at all!

Wearables are here to stay and plastic is the preferred choice of material that will power these tech devices for an eternity. Are you a manufacturer or distributor of plastic used in building these wearables? Or do you source raw materials that help manufacture these devices? Or maybe you have a keen interest in the plastic industry? If you have answered yes to any of these 3 questions, then Plastivision 2023 is where you should be!

You can either exhibit at Plastivision or visit the event to understand the latest innovations in the plastic industry. Plastivision is India’s most influential plastics exhibition and will be held from December 7 to 11, 2023. We look forward to your presence at this prestigious event!
