Digital patient monitoring devices market was valued at USD 39.7 billion by 2019, growing with 26.8% CAGR during the forecast period, 2020-2026.

Digital patient monitoring is a technology that allows patient monitoring beyond traditional clinical settings, such as at home or in a remote location, which can improve access to treatment and decrease the costs of healthcare service providers. The introduction of these emerging digital technologies has helped the healthcare industry to develop innovative patient care practices. Healthcare facilities around the globe are implementing this new technology that allows remote patient monitoring, to better tracking and treatment of patients throughout the entire episode. Patient monitoring devices should be designed to meet the needs of patient populations. Connected health and digital patient monitoring devices such as remote patient monitoring are more critical tools in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic because they allow physicians to monitor patients without physical contact with them, thereby preventing the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Market Dynamics

An increasing number of chronic diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes is one of the major factors boosting the demand for the real-time monitoring devices. For example, according to CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) data, the incidence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and asthma is increasing at rapid pace globally. Furthermore, the rapidly emerging public health epidemic COVID-19 has witnessed the growing usage of telehealth and non-invasive tools for patient surveillance to promote patient management while minimizing patient and health care provider interaction and potential exposure to the virus.

Digital patient monitoring devices assist patients with continuous monitoring while at the same time providing remote access to patient data, further shortening time through clinical decisions. The demand for wireless monitoring devices is increasing across the globe due to their features and convenience. This has led manufacturers to develop remote neurological, cardiovascular, and respiratory monitoring devices, along with the increasing prevalence of neuro, heart, and breathing diseases. In addition, the launch of various wearable devices by companies such as Apple, Fitbit and Xiaomi is expected to offer growth opportunities to the market in the near future. However, high product cost coupled with lack of awareness in developing region will pull back the industry growth to some extent.

Type Takeaway

Based on the types, the global digital patient monitoring devices market has been categorized into wireless sensor technology, telehealth, remote patient monitoring, wearable devices, and mHealth. Remote patient monitoring products are further categorized into ambulatory patient monitoring, hospital inpatient monitoring, and smart home healthcare. Of the different types, wearable devices category dominated the market. Wearable devices with wearable sensors offer real-time monitoring of patients. Owing to the numerous properties associated with these devices such as the ease of operation, resistance to dust & water, and attractive designs of the devices is projected to spur product demand.

On the contrary, the mHealth segment if expected to grow at the highest CAGR owing to the increasing penetration of smartphones and faster internet access. Besides, mobile health technology enables patients with chronic heart disease or lung disease to enjoy better quality of life at an affordable cost. Surging utilization and support of an online platforms to generate optimistic health outcome coupled with the high preference for portable devices are estimated to propel the segment growth. Moreover, the remote patient monitoring segment is anticipated to grow at a promising growth rate in the upcoming years.

Product Takeaway

On the basis of product, the global market is divided into diagnostic and therapeutic monitoring devices. Diagnostic monitoring devices are further segmented into sleep monitors, fetal monitors, neuromonitors, and vital sign monitors. With the emerging prevalence of neurological disorders along with the growing geriatric population, the adoption of neuromonitors is increasing rapidly. For example, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), the incidence of neurological disorders is increasing globally. On contrary, fetal monitors are growing with promising CAGR owing to the availability of variety of fetal monitors by key players. For example, GE Company offers Corometrics 250cx Series Fetal Monitor that provides detailed and personalized information on birthing experience.

Furthermore, therapeutic monitoring devices are sub-divided into respiratory monitors and insulin monitoring devices. In 2019, insulin monitoring devices held a substantial market share due to the increasing number of diabetic patients across the globe. Approval of new and advanced insulin delivery products will support segment growth.

Regional Takeaway

Owing to the supportive government initiatives and advanced healthcare infrastructure, the North American region dominated the global market, in 2019. Moreover, favourable reimbursement policies also may augment the regional market. In the U.S., the suitable reimbursement scenario is expected to enhance the demand for healthcare devices, thereby propelling the digital patient monitoring devices market. The Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow at the fastest pace with the rising geriatric population and improved healthcare facilities. Countries like China and India are emerging markets with the region.

Key Vendor Takeaway
