Technology Insights

The wired communication equipment segment held the largest revenue share of over 50.0% in 2021. Industry players are offering integrated solutions, wherein the data saved on the monitor screen is a summation of the readings from different systems. Hospitals are expanding their facilities to offer real-time information by incorporating technology-updated systems. In March 2016, Waupun Memorial Hospital announced a USD 23 million expansion plan for its facility. The beds that are connected to diagnostics systems send all information to the nurse call systems and allow two-way communication. Based on technology, the market is segmented into wired communication equipment and wireless communication equipment.

The wireless communication equipment segment is anticipated to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period owing to the higher level of integration, reduced cost for installation as compared to wired technology, and better patient mobility. For senior and assisted living facilities, patient mobility is crucial, where wireless nurse call buttons or pendants are of great help. In January 2019, Rauland Corporation launched a next-generation platform for its Responder intelligent nurse call solution to optimize clinical workflow for better patient outcomes.

In addition, wireless communication is becoming more frequently intuitive and user-friendly. Patients can now "talk" to the caregivers from pillow speakers via a handheld ID card and smartphone. That will improve the patient experience and improve the HCAHPS score. For instance, in March 2019, TekTone announced the launch of Tek-CARE Staff app, combined with 2-way audio-enabled calling solutions, making it easier for medical staff to respond to patients’ needs.

Type Insights

The integrated communication systems dominated the market in 2021 with a revenue share of over 50.0%. Increased acceptance of the latest technology, increased patient satisfaction, and improved care efficiency are factors fueling the growth of the segment. With rapid technological advances, the government is putting its efforts to fund hospitals to support the use of state-of-the-art communication devices. For instance, the Kiwanis Care Centre received USD 750 thousand from the British Columbia government to upgrade its old nurse calling equipment. Therefore, the demand from medical professionals for easy-to-use intuitive equipment, which has specialized options to handle patient requests and emergencies is expected to favor the segment growth.

The buttons segment is expected to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period. Patients typically use a push-button device to alert the caregivers that assistance is needed. These devices are easy to use because the patient only has to press a push-button switch. The button system can be used in various healthcare settings such as hospitals, clinics, and home medical facilities, and contributes to the smooth operation of medical facilities while ensuring the safety of patients.

Application Insights

The wanderer control segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 30.0% in 2021. Increasing funding projects to implement the most effective healthcare model for improved care is propelling the segment growth. In terms of application, the market is segmented into alarms and communications, workflow optimization, wanderer control, and fall detection and prevention. The workflow optimization segment is projected to register a lucrative CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing need to reduce operating costs and effective healthcare resource allocation are likely to favor the growth of the segment.

Increasing efforts by hospitals to reduce the incidence of falls is augmenting the growth of the fall detection and prevention segment. The alarm and communications segment is projected to grow as it plays a critical role in increasing patient safety by facilitating communication between patients and caregivers. For instance, Amplion Alert uses the RTLS badge to connect to medical devices for alert management. It instantly collects data on room activity when caregivers enter the room.

End-use Insights

The hospitals segment held the largest revenue share of over 50.0% in 2021. An increasing patient flow, incorporation of sophisticated clinical alert devices, and increasing incidences of emergency cases are factors fueling the segment growth. In July 2021, Austco Marketing & Service (Asia) Pte Ltd. received a contract of USD 3.3 million to supply Tacera Nurse Call platform to the 795-bed general and acute care hospital Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH).  High demand for integrated communication solutions from hospitals is fuelling the segment growth. Based on end-use, the market is segmented into hospitals, long-term care facilities, and ASCs/clinics.

The ASCs/clinics segment is likely to grow owing to the increasing adoption of emergency medical alert systems in clinics and rising investment in integrated communication technologies. Furthermore, the increasing number of large chain private clinics is anticipated to drive the segment. Long-term care facilities are projected to register a considerable growth rate owing to the increasing number of senior care facilities. The nurse call pendants such as Tek-CARE have a passive infrared (PIR) motion detector, which helps staff keep a check on the patients. Moreover, with technology advancements, patient monitoring and medical reporting are integrated with the nurse calling devices to improve quality and productivity. The online software keeps track of the caregiver response time, several emergency calls, and patients’ requests, thus improving patient care.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the overall market with a revenue share of over 40.0% in 2021. Growing awareness, favorable health reimbursement, and the strategic presence of industry players in the region are fueling the market growth in North America. Furthermore, higher health care costs, lower caregiver-patient population ratios, and an increase in the number of older people are augmenting the market growth in the U.S.

Asia Pacific is projected to witness lucrative growth due to the presence of a sizeable geriatric population and the increasing flow of patients in outpatient clinics and nursing homes. Domestic manufacturers in India and China are striving to establish an advantage in their home countries to gain a broad domestic consumer base. This has intensified competition in emerging markets such as Asia Pacific. Increasing efforts to reduce burnout in medical staff and improve hospital workflow are projected to boost the market growth in Europe. Furthermore, increasing incidence of patient falls and strong government support to boost digital health adoption in hospitals are propelling the market growth in the region.
