|Market Growth Rate 2024-2032
A watch is a portable timepiece designed to be worn or carried by a person. It is a small clock, typically worn on one's wrist, secured with a strap or bracelet. Watches have evolved from mechanical devices to electronic gadgets over centuries. Initially, they operated using mechanical movements powered by winding a mainspring. However, with advances in technology, most modern watches now use quartz movements or are digitally powered. The primary function of a watch is to keep accurate time. However, beyond this basic function, watches often come with additional features, such as a date display, alarm, stopwatch, timer, and even moon phase display. In recent times, smartwatches are emerging and are capable of fitness tracking, syncing with smartphones for notifications, and many other functions. Moreover, watches are also evolving as fashion accessories and status symbols. Luxury watches, meticulously crafted, often with precious metals and gemstones, represent craftsmanship, elegance, and exclusivity. Watches hold cultural, historical, and personal significance, reflecting personal style, accomplishment, or a rite of passage.

In line with this, watches are evolving from being mere timekeeping devices to fashion accessories and status symbols.

The market is also driven by the increasing demand for smartwatches, along with the rise of wearable technology in India. These devices not only tell time but also track fitness, provide notifications, and offer various other features which are making them popular, particularly among the younger population, thus fueling the growth of the market. Apart from this, the rising demand for women's watches due to the increasing number of working women in the country is facilitating the growth of the market.
