The Global Wearable Medical Devices Market has been estimated at USD 3.3 billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 7.8 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 17.7% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2020.
Wearable medical electronics devices are devices that act as biosensors and are attached to the human body to detect and monitor changes in certain crucial body signatures of various areas in the body and capture physiological data. Keeping their function in mind, these devices are designed to be non-invasive in nature, autonomous in functioning, and are primarily used in clinical monitoring. Electronic wearable medical devices serve multiple functions, such as monitoring blood sugar, glucose, and chronic diseases like heart diseases, diabetes, and various other parameters. They also provide local processing, feedbacks and reports, communication capabilities, and easy & timely sensing abilities. Activity monitors, smart clothing, smart equipment, and smart watches are a few examples of the same.
These wearable medical devices offer solutions to both physicians and health care providers. The services/solutions offered can be categorized into four segments, namely, disease management, monitoring & feedback, rehabilitation, and health & fitness processes. The monitoring and feedback solutions segment accounted for more than 70.0% share of the global wearable medical device market in 2015.
This market is driven by a number of factors, such as the large number of ongoing projects and innovations in the healthcare and electronics sectors, the rising incidences of chronic diseases among all demographics, the growing capabilities, and the ease of use of medical devices. However, this market faces certain drawbacks, such as high costs of devices, issues in reimbursement, and lack of awareness in the developing countries, such as India, Brazil, Mexico, and others,. These factors may act as a roadblock to the growth of the market.
This market can be broadly segmented into diagnostic wearable market and therapeutic wearable.
The market has more relevance today since trends show that people prefer a more independent life without the support of others. This technology is specially inclined for the ill and aged population, for whom home healthcare is quite vital.
