Samsung, Pebble Dominate Smart Watch MarketJune 11, 2014
The NPD Group said this week that two companies- Samsung and Pebble- have dominated sales of smart watches sold since last fall. Samsung is the top seller, with 78 percent of the market, with Pebble holding 18 percent, with no other competitors gaining any type of foothold.
“The smartwatch market is poised to continue to grow in 2014” Ben Arnold, executive director of industry analysis at NPD, said in a statement. “With nearly $100 million in US sales in less than a year, the category is off to a promising start with just two major brands."
