The MRFR research report suggests that the global Watch Market Size was estimated at USD 51.9 million in 2021. The watch industry is projected to grow from USD 54.2 million in 2022 to USD 73.5 million by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.45% during the forecast period (2022 – 2030). One of the main causes influencing the demand for handcrafted luxury watches worldwide is the rising fast fashion trend and the expanding use of high-end accessories as a status symbol. In addition, the expanding use of smart and connected gadgets, the spread of the internet, and the reliance on smartphones are the key market driver enhancing watch market growth.
Technological breakthroughs in watches are expected to be the primary driver of the market. For instance, wrist watches provide various functions according to watch size and design. Wristwatches for divers have high water resistance and the presence of various experts in horology is likely to herald a new era in watches. Changing lifestyles of customers and the need for personalization are expected to bolster the demand for watches.
The proliferation of the internet and miniaturization of cells and processors can bring forth new avenues to explore in the watch market. A huge need for basic and mid digital watches in Singapore can augur favorably for the market. But the availability of counterfeit products and unorganized players can hamper the market growth. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to many potential customers opting for online channels for the procurement of watches.
The global watch market has been analyzed for four key regions—North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and Rest-of-the-World (RoW).
Europe is anticipated to lead in the global Key watch Market Players due to changes in the lifestyles of consumers and demand for smartwatches. The preference for luxury watches and the rise in online shopping are other growth drivers of the market. The decline in quartz watches sales in France, the U.K., and other countries in the region is likely to lead to new manufacturing strategies to revive the segment. The rise in disposable income levels of customers can act as a catalyst for growth in the market.
APAC is expected to exhibit a huge growth rate during the forecast period due to the rise in expendable income levels of citizens, marketing campaigns, awareness of technology, and the organized retail sector. Sales of mechanical watches in Singapore are likely to pave the way for a niche segment by catering to a younger audience.
