IoT in Healthcare Market Dynamics

An increase in investments for the application of IoT solutions by the healthcare sector is one of the key factors driving the global IoT in the healthcare market. It is owing to the various benefits offered by using IoT in healthcare. It helps in increasing patient engagement and satisfaction as interactions with doctors have become more comfortable and more efficient. Further, remote monitoring of patients’ health helps in reducing the length of hospital stay and prevents re-admissions. IoT in healthcare also has a major impact on reducing healthcare costs significantly and improving treatment outcomes. Additionally, the availability of customer-friendly devices not only provides remote clinical operations to physicians but also functions as a fitness and wellness tracker for athletes and as a dose reminder, especially for chronic-disease patients. Furthermore, increasing support from government organizations.

However, security is the primary concern in dealing with IoT connectivity. The lack of consistency in interoperability, interconnectivity, and security issue is the major factors hampering the growth of the IoT in the healthcare market.

IoT in Healthcare Market Segmentation

Based on technology the global IoT in the Healthcare market is broadly segmented into Wi-Fi, Bluetooth low energy, ZigBee, cellular, satellite, and others. Among all these, bluetooth low-energy technology accounted for a significant market share in 2018. It is owing to the increasing adoption of Bluetooth low-energy gadgets and tools in hospitals for sending medical data to-and-from the cloud. In 2016, Roche launched a Bluetooth-based coagulation system that helps in checking the time taken by blood clots. During the forecast period, cellular technology is expected to grow at a high pace. This technology allows sending a huge amount of data over a long distance. Cellular networks are increasingly used for medical applications, such as remote Clinical Operations. It is a safer, conducive, and faster connectivity solution for remote monitoring, and also enhances portability, usability, and versatility for connected medical devices.

Based on applications the global IoT in the healthcare market is segmented into telemedicine, clinical operations, fitness, and wellness measurement, inpatient monitoring, connected imaging, and others. Among all these telemedicine accounted for a major market share in 2018 and is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period (2019-2026). Telemedicine includes remote patient monitoring and health. The demand for monitoring device systems such as continuous glucose monitoring systems is skyrocketing due to the rising incidence of diabetes. For instance, according to the American Diabetes Association, in 2015, 30.3 million Americans, or 9.4% of the population, had diabetes, and approximately 1.25 million American children and adults had type 1 diabetes. Also, various initiatives to promote CGMs are driving the market. In 2018, on World Diabetes Day (14 November), the NHS provided the FreeStyle Libre smart CGM to type 1 diabetes patients. It is estimated that this would increase the access to CGM devices in England from 3-5% to 20-25%. Thus, the growing usage of patient monitoring systems is diving into the telemedicine segment in the global IoT in the healthcare market.

IoT in Healthcare Market Geographical Analysis

The global IoT in the Healthcare market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. The North America region accounted for a major market share in 2018. It is owing to technological advancements and various government initiatives promoting the adoption of digital platforms in the life science industry. The Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period (2019-2026). Rising initiatives by governments for promoting connected health services, and gradually increasing adoption of advanced technologies, such as smart wearables, are the key factors driving the region’s growth. In 2018, the government of Singapore launched several key technology initiatives with direct impacts on the medical manufacturing sector. These include programs on 3D printing, robotics, and industrial applications of the Internet of Things (IoT), to name a few.  Also, the increase in the number of hospitals and surgical centers in this region. IoT’s application is also helping to lower costs, improve efficiency, and bring the focus back to quality patient care.
