Wearable electronic devices are an established market, but not a mature one. There's plenty of upside and an emphasis on cutting-edge developments. As consumer demands for additional functionality develop, so do demands on the materials you select to enable next generation products. Because wearables often interface with the body 24/7, they need to be designed for long-term skin contact.
