Competitive Landscape

Fitbit led sales in 2015 with a volume share of 74%. The company’s success can be attributed to its dominance in the passive wearable electronics category, where it accounted for 93% of sales in 2015. Fitbit has become the de facto standard for exercise and fitness tracking bands, with brand recognition being extremely high among adult Canadians. The idea of having a wearable exercise tracker that provides the ability to manage activity on a daily basis is of interest to Canadians while the social aspect of viewing, sharing and competing is widely embraced as a fun practice.

Industry Prospects

Wearable electronics is set to continue on a strong path as new products are being introduced and retail sales remain in a new growth stage. The modern "hipster" will look to autonomous wearables for social purposes as their online life and connected friends are critical, while fitness and exercise use is expected to support growth in passive wearables. The launch of the Apple iWatch in 2015 will significantly boost awareness and demand through wide media coverage and hype around the launch.
