We are happy to announce the release of a new TrendsSpotting research report uncovering major trends in Mobile Accessories.
Based on exploration of over 2000 new accessories released since 2011 + CES 2012 and a market analysis of major market trends characterizing this growing market, TrendsSpotting has identified about 150 recently released products that reflect new emerging trends in mobile accessories.
The innovations analyzed in this report are profiled according to Product Categories (Protection, Power, Entertainment, Smart Solutions), User Experience Categories, Marketing and Consumer Trends.
1. The largest shift in the mobile accessories market identified by TrendsSpotting is no doubtfully marked by intelligent capabilities made available with mobile apps.
The mobile accessories market has changed dramatically during the last 12 months, since consumers have largely adopted smartphones, and apps download has become a popular behavior. It is no longer a market of cases and skins but of smart devices supported by intelligent apps. With the increased use of mobile apps , new opportunities lie for hardware accessories that complement the mobile device. Mobile accessories can now provide smart solutions that were not available before: location tracking, sensors and monitoring devices are put together to allow smarter management systems for homes, transportation, fitness and health care.
2. Protection: The high value of the smartphone device (compared to feature phones) makes it rational for consumers to invest in its protection. As competition in this market strengthens, case makers understand they need to provide more advanced solutions (such as charging capabilities and storage), as part of the case.
3. Charging: With phones following the consumer everywhere, we see a large variety of charging solutions: from simultaneous charging and battery boosts to wireless charging and alternative power sources, consumers can now make sure they will never be disconnected.
4. Entertainment: In the last year we have witnessed a growing trend of mobile accessories that enhances the capabilities of smartphones: its visual and audio features are upgraded to provide a more developed entertainment device, used mostly for games and music. With upgrading such capabilities, the smartphone becomes the center of entertainment in homes and on the go.
