Telehealth Market by Component (Hardware (Blood Glucose Monitors), Software (Integrated), Services (Remote Monitoring, Real-time Interactions)), End User (Providers, Payers, Patients), & Mode of Delivery (Web, Cloud)) - Global Forecast to 2021
The telehealth market is projected to reach USD 9.35 billion by 2021 from USD 2.78 billion in 2016, at a CAGR of 27.5% in the next five years (2016 to 2021).
The healthcare industry is undergoing a fundamental transformation globally—a shift from a volume-based business to a value-based business. Growing demands from consumers for improved healthcare quality and greater value are forcing healthcare providers and payers to deliver optimized outcomes. In order to overcome these challenges and meet consumer expectations, healthcare providers are increasingly adopting telehealth solutions that enable them to provide improved healthcare at reduced costs.
Growth in geriatric population, rising prevalence of chronic diseases, dearth of healthcare professionals worldwide, improvements in telecommunication infrastructure, technological advancements, benefits of telehealth, and need for affordable treatment options due to rising healthcare costs are some factors expected to drive the growth of the global telehealth market in the coming years.
In 2016, North America is expected to account for the largest share of the global telehealth market, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). In the U.S., the telehealth market is driven by the rising healthcare costs, upcoming regulatory policies, shortage of physicians, growth in geriatric population, implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and increasing funding for telehealth. In Canada, the growth of the telehealth market is driven by the rising healthcare spending, and growing number of conferences and events that are generating awareness about telehealth services in the country.
In the coming years, the telehealth market is expected to witness the highest growth in the Asia-Pacific region, with emphasis on India, China, and Japan. This can be attributed to factors such as growth in geriatric population in Japan, favorable initiatives for the adoption of telepathology in China, and low doctor-patient ratio and high internet penetration in India. Furthermore, increasing number of HCIT programs and rising prevalence of chronic diseases in Australia; growing medical tourism in India, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand; and increasing funding for telehealth in Australia are additional drivers for the telehealth market in the Asia-Pacific region.
