mHealth Solutions Market by Connected Devices (Blood Pressure Monitor, Glucose Meter, Pulse Oximeter) Apps (Weight Loss, Women's Health, Personal Health Record, & Medication) Services (Remote Monitoring, Consultation, Prevention) - Global Forecast to 2020
The mobile healthcare solutions market covers smartphone-connected medical devices (hardware), paid mHealth applications (software), and services. Currently, connected devices contribute the maximum share (~63.7%) to the mHealth solutions market, although the download volume of mHealth applications is higher than the installed base of connected devices.
The global mHealth solutions market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 33.4% during the forecast period (2015 to 2020). The increasing penetration of smartphones, tablets, and other mobile platforms; increasing utilization of connected medical devices and mHealth apps in the management of chronic diseases; the advent of advanced connectivity and network technologies; robust penetration of 3G and 4G networks to provide uninterrupted healthcare services; and rising focus on patient-centric healthcare are the major drivers for this market. However, the risk of data theft, stringent regulations by the FDA and EU, low guidance from physicians in selecting apps, and resistance from traditional healthcare providers may restrain market growth.
In 2014, North America commanded the largest share of the global mHealth solutions market, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. Developed geographies like North America and Europe are likely to grow at a lower CAGR as compared to the Asia-Pacific market, which is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 38.1% during the forecast period. Growth in this regional segment is largely driven by the rapidly aging population, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, and lack of primary healthcare facilities in the rural areas of this region.
In this report, the market is segmented by products & services and region the basis of products & services, the mHealth solutions market is segmented into connected medical devices, mHealth applications, and mHealth services. In 2014, the connected medical devices segment accounted for the largest share of the global mHealth solutions market. This market is poised to reach USD 25.26 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 24.2% during the forecast period. The connected medical devices market is further segmented into blood glucose meters, ECG monitors, blood pressure monitors, pulse oximeters, peak flow meters, neurological monitoring devices, sleep apnea monitors, multiparameter trackers, and others. In 2014, the blood pressure monitors segment accounted for the largest share of 28.0% of the global connected medical devices market. However, the blood glucose meters market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 26.1% during the forecast period. This market is mainly driven by the increasing prevalence of diabetes, which will correspondingly drive the adoption of blood glucose monitoring devices among patients. Moreover, a shift in consumer preference, from traditional glucose tests to multifunctional blood glucose meters for continuous glucose monitoring using smartphones, is also expected to play a pivotal role in the growth of the blood glucose meters segment in the coming years.
