Digital Therapeutics (DTx) Market Forecasts to 2028 – Global Analysis By Product and Service Type (Device), Purchase Mode (Individual, Group Purchase Organization), Application (Preventive, Treatment/Care-Related) and By Geography
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Digital Therapeutics (DTx) Market is accounted for $3.79 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $22.51 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 29.0% during the forecast period. Digital therapeutics provides evidence-based therapeutic interventions to patients. It is delivered through software programs and devices to prevent, manage, or treat a medical condition. The digital therapeutics software application can be used independently or in combination with devices, medications, or any other therapies to provide patient care and health outcomes. The design, clinical validation, usability, and data security of digital therapeutics products are all based on advanced technology best practices.
Growing incidence of preventable chronic diseases
The high prevalence and incidence rate of chronic diseases is a major concern for healthcare systems across the globe. The treatment of patients with chronic diseases is a significant challenge, as psychosomatic or bio psychic factors very often influence these patients. As chronic diseases are often associated with high levels of uncertainty, patients need to change their behavior as part of a new self-care lifestyle. Furthermore, many chronic disorders and conditions are progressive, and their incidence increases with age. As a result, with significant growth in the global geriatric population, chronic disorders are expected to rise further in the coming years.
Patient data privacy concerns
In many countries, various health apps are deprived of appropriate approvals, leading to concerns of product & data quality, reliability in treatment decisions, patient privacy, security, and the responsible use of data. Digital therapeutics providers have access to patient information and are forbidden from sharing the information with anyone not involved in treating that patient. However, with the integration of data using digital tools, the patient’s data is at risk of being accessed by any healthcare professional not related to the patient’s treatment program.
Strategic initiatives by manufacturers
Strategic initiatives practice supports companies undertaking the most important growth or expansion projects. While organizations are normally well-geared to manage the day-to-day aspects of business efficiently, major new strategic initiatives tend to be complex projects with multiple workstreams involved. The team helps clients maintain focus on business-as-usual functions by dexterously supporting the unique and complex task flows that accompany Greenfield integration or post-merger integration.
Reluctance among patients to adopt digital therapeutics
Motivating people to use digital therapeutics and building their confidence is a major threat faced by digital therapeutics providers. While older and underserved populations show maximum susceptibility to diseases and the highest occurrence rates, they are the least likely to use digital therapeutics products due to low technology literacy levels. Furthermore, the limit of how much behavioural change will be observed with digital therapeutics is still undefined. The clinical validation and deployment of digital therapeutics are carried out on self-selected or volunteer patients; however, their effect on patients showing resistance is still unknown. Furthermore, it is unknown whether digital therapeutics can be sustained over longer periods; there is little information on total patient retention and long-term outcomes.
The treatment/care-related applications segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The treatment/care-related applications are expected to have the largest share during the forecast period. This segment is attributed to the increasing incidences of chronic diseases, the rising economic burden of their treatment, and investments in digital therapeutics to encourage the development of cost-effective and scalable treatment platforms for these conditions.
The business-to-business (B2B) segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
