Medical Alert Systems Market Dynamics

The global Medical alert systems market is expanding owing to its rising need by geriatric patients with Dementia and Alzheimer’s for physical therapy and other similar syndromes patients. Also, the increasing technological advancements and developments are boosting the global market growth.

The growing demand for medical alert systems is fueling market growth.

The growing geriatric population with chronic diseases is promoting the market`s growth. For instance, according to Department of Economics and Social Affairs the United States, around 727 million people aged 65 and over in 2020 which is believed to reach 1.5 billion by 2050. Worldwide the percentage of the population of people aged 65 and over is anticipated to go from 9.3% in 2020 to 16% by 2050. In addition, one out of ten people aged 45 and above has a Subjective Cognitive Decline that has made 41 % of people let go of day-to-day activities, boosting the demand for emergency alert systems. Again, according to World Health Organization (WHO), about 55 million people have dementia worldwide, with 10 million new cases annually. The most regular type of Dementia is Alzheimer’s and may make up to 60%-70% of dementia cases. Likewise, the increasing number of emergency department visits by the elderly population due to falls also indicates the growing need for medical alert systems. For instance, according to CDC, for every 10,000 older people, there were approximately 645 emergency room visits due to falls in 2021. Thus, the increased risk of falling and keeping a personal emergency response system can be advantageous if an older person gets in situations like this.

In addition, majority of elderly prefer to age in the comfort of their homes rather than going for other alternatives, like nursing homes and assisted living facilities. According to the American Association of Retired Persons, about 90% of people aged 65 years and above prefer to stay in homes for the time feasible. So with medical alert systems, the elderly can age in their preferred place. Also, caregivers have easy access to assistance through medical alerts. Thus, the data above indicates that the growing geriatric population will boost the global medical alert system market during the forecast period.

The increasing examples of medical alert system malfunctions will hamper the growth of the global medical alert systems market.

However, the increasing examples of medical alert system malfunction are restraining the global market growth. For example, a key factor anticipated to hinder the market growth is problems associated with power or energy and battery life. Some alert systems can encounter technical failure or malfunction and concerns regarding failure and reliability.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis on Medical Alert Systems Market

COVID-19 has supplied the medical alert systems market with rising opportunities. For instance, in August 2020, a Hong Kong Baptist University research group developed a COVID-19 alert system that transmits notifications to the user through a mobile app subject of an infected individual who has seen the exact location within a particular duration, to lower the risk of exposure during the pandemic. Also, in March 2020, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), an autonomous agency of the US government, introduced several programs to maintain Americans linked to essential health services, like the $200 million COVID-19 Telehealth Program, assisting medical professionals in supplying related care services to patients at their residences or mobile sites in response to the pandemic.

Medical Alert Systems Market Segment Analysis

The mobile medical alert systems segment is predicted to dominate the market during the forecast period (2023-2030).

Mobile medical alert systems utilize cellular service and GPS technology to assist the user in connecting with the call center inside and outside. Most of these units are all-in-one gadgets of differing sizes and efficiency. Naturally, the more compact the device or the better its characteristics, the briefer its battery life, causing frequent charging important. The increasing developments in the mobile medical alert system segment are boosting its growth throughout the forecasted period.

For instance, in October 2020, MobileHelp, a Florida-based healthcare technology company, introduced Micro, the all-in-one mobile medical alert device furnished with the company’s patented automatic fall detection technology, assuring that the user can yet acquire help even if they are incapable of pressing their emergency button. In an emergency, MobileHelp’s multi-mode location precision, which derives from GPS technology, cellular ID, and short-range RF, enables pinpointing the user’s location. Also, in April 2021, Medical Guardian rolled out its newest medical alert system, the Mini Guardian, which is believed to be the smallest mobile medical alert system available. Although the mobile medical alert system presents equivalent safety attributes to Mobile Guardian and Active Guardian, it is a compact device that can be readily accommodated into a pocket of the user’s shirt. Therefore from the data mentioned above, it is anticipated that mobile medical alert systems will dominate the global market throughout the forecasted period.
