Telehealth Market by Component (Hardware (Blood Glucose Meters), Software (Integrated), Services (Remote Monitoring, Real-time Interactions)), End User (Providers, Patients) & by Delivery Mode (On Premise, Web, & Cloud) - Trends & Global Forecast to 2020
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 addition, while the number of hospital admissions is rising globally, healthcare infrastructure is not growing at a similar pace, which has added to the burden on healthcare systems. 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.
The global telehealth market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 24.2% from 2015 to 2020 to reach $6.5 billion by 2020 from $2.2 billion in 2015. Over the years, the healthcare industry has recognized that traditional approaches to patient care, quality assurance, and cost management are inefficient in the face of emerging challenges. Therefore, telehealth solutions will be among the priorities on the investment list of healthcare organizations seeking to streamline the telehealth process and ensure effective cost management.
Based on component, the services segment is expected to be the largest (in 2015). However, the software segment will be fastest-growing component segment. Among the hardware segments, monitors are expected to dominate the telehealth market in 2015. However, the medical peripheral devices segment is expected to be the fastest-growing (during 2015 to 2020). Based on medical peripheral devices, the blood pressure meters segment is expected to be the largest and the fastest-growing (during 2015 to 2020). Based on software, the integrated solutions segment is expected to be the largest (in 2015) and the fastest-growing (during 2015 to 2020). Based on services, the remote monitoring segment is expected to be the largest (in 2015). However, the real-time interaction segment will be fastest-growing component segment. Based on the mode of delivery, the web-based solutions segment is expected to dominate the telehealth market in 2015. However, cloud-based solutions will be the fastest-growing delivery mode. Among end users, the providers segment is expected to be the largest (in 2015) and the fastest-growing (during 2015 to 2020).
Based on region, Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during 2015 to 2020. The high growth of the Asia-Pacific region can be attributed to the growing medical tourism industry, rapidly growing healthcare industry in India, increasing number of HCIT programs and rising prevalence of chronic diseases in Australia, and increasing funding for telehealth in Australia.
