Innovations fueling the sports and fitness market will be at CES Asia 2016 on the show floor and in conference programming when it returns to Shanghai May 11-13. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) and co-produced by Intex Shanghai, CES Asia serves as the premier event for the Asian consumer technology market.
“Sports and fitness tech empowers consumers to take charge of their own health and well-being,” said Karen Chupka, senior vice president, CES and corporate business strategy. “From wearables that track blood pressure, oxygen levels and activity, to smart biometric clothing, these devices now work alongside consumers to maximize fitness potential. CES Asia will showcase advancements in sports and fitness technology to the Asian market.”
New for 2016, CTA will host a conference session titled IoT Smart Living Summit: The Ecological Chain of the Wearable Market. Join a panel of medical, health and environmental experts on Wednesday, May 11, in the Kerry Hotel as they discuss the ecological chain of the booming wearable market and its application.
The sports and fitness technology market is a growing sector in the global consumer technology industry. According to CTA research, fitness activity tracker volumes will hit 17.4 million units in the U.S. in 2016 – a 12 percent increase from 2015 – with revenues reaching $1.3 billion USD.
