Watches and Clocks: A Global Outlook

Follow us on LinkedIn – Watches and clocks are considered as fashion articles in modern times, and precision and reliability are no longer sufficient to satisfy buyers. Styling, design, and affordable pricing are important criteria influencing the sale of these articles. Wristwatches comprise a major portion of the watches and clocks industry, and though the worldwide market for wristwatches is experiencing volume growth, there has been no appreciable increase in value sales due to declining unit prices. Wristwatches are also experiencing fierce competition from electronic gadgets such as cell phones, MP3 players, iPods, digital radios and other electronic devices, which also display time.

Popular types of watches include watches for office goers, sports watches, watches for teenagers, as well as watches as fashion pieces. Apart from conventional materials such as leather and metal, manufacturers are experimenting with various materials including wood and high-tech ceramics. In the mature markets, such as US and Europe, growth is expected to be derived from expensive advertising campaigns, as well as from the sale and manufacture of more luxurious and fashionable pieces. Growth in the watches and clocks industry is forecast to be highest in Asia-Pacific and Latin America due to increasing income levels, consumer awareness, and socio-cultural changes.
