The global Telemedicine market size is expected to be worth around US$ 398.9 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Telemedicine market size was valued at US$ 55.10 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 22.8% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.
Key drivers of the market include increasing incidences of chronic conditions and rising demand for self-care. Furthermore, enhancing internet application, virtual medicine and rising demand for centralization of healthcare are expected to save on cost incurred, which is one of the critical success factors attributing to market growth.
In the U.S. both state and federal laws have evolved to facilitate the widespread use of telemedicine to cope up with the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, in March 6, 2020 the U.S. president signed Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act. It includes USD 8.0 billion emergency funding for the federal agencies and to expand reimbursement coverage for telehealth services. Various U.S. states also waived of the licensure for better utilization of the service. This positively impacted the market growth during the pandemic.
Rapid advancements in technology is further expected to boost the demand for online consultation, thereby contributing to the market growth of telemedicine solutions and services over the forecast period. For instance, in April 2020, American Well launched Amwell Private Practice that is a secure, simple and cost-effective solution for doctors to deliver virtual primary or specialty care for COVID19 patients. There has been a significant rise in telemental health visits over the past decade in the U.S. and the trend is expected to continue during the forecast period, thereby contributing to the adoption of telemedicine systems by hospitals and healthcare settings.
The store and forward segment dominated the market for telemedicine and is expected to hold the largest revenue share of around 40.0% in 2020. Store and forward system does not occur in real-time and involves the storage and transmission of medical information to the practitioner at a convenient time. The industry is driven by three concepts which include real-time (synchronous), store and forward (asynchronous), and others like home health virtual medicine.
On the other hand, real-time telemedicine comprises a contact between patient and healthcare practitioner via the use of electronic mediums, majorly video conferencing. This concept, also referred to as synchronous telemedicine, entails a vast amount of application which vary from a simple telephonic conversation to complex robotic surgery. Furthermore, home health-based telemedicine involves patient monitoring (e.g. patient statistics and vital sign monitoring) from a distant location (usually home) in an effort to control unnecessary hospital expenses.
The product segment dominated the market for telemedicine and accounted for the largest revenue share of 44.0% in 2020. The product segment is further divided into software, hardware, and others. The hardware segment is expected to hold the largest market share of 41.8% and is inclusive of medical peripheral devices, webcams, speakers, microphones, display screens, videoconferencing devices, laptops, and monitors.
The services segment is further classified into tele-monitoring, tele-consulting, and tele-education. The tele-monitoring segment is expected to grow over the forecast period owing to the increasing base of geriatric population requiring home assistance for care delivery. Tele-consulting segment is anticipated to be the lucrative segment over the forecast period owing to the rising initiatives by the government for telehealth implementation projects and high demand for video conferencing solutions.
The teleradiology segment dominated the market for telemedicine and accounted for the largest revenue share of over 26.0% in 2020 owing to factors such as an increase in imaging practices, teleradiology workflow adoption by healthcare providers, and the streamlining and regulation of teleradiology practices.
Integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) into teleradiology, implementation of Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), and growing R&D activities pertaining to eHealth are key growth propellers over the forecast period.
The web/mobile based delivery model dominated the market for telemedicine and accounted for the largest revenue share of 78.6% in 2020. The segment is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years as it offers direct access to care delivery solutions. This segment is further categorized into telephonic and visualized access to care. Telephonic care delivery dominated the market owing to its benefits such as cost-effective and easy to operate. In addition, rising smartphone penetration and disposable income are augmenting the segment growth.
Increasing awareness amongst the users, the introduction of technologically advanced solutions, penetration of cloud-based solutions is anticipated to boost the adoption of visualized care delivery solutions. The segment is expected to register a growth rate of 23.1% during the forecast period. The rising need for immediate medical assistance to patients located in remote locations is fueling the adoption of video conferencing solutions.
The patients’ segment dominated the telemedicine market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 43.6% in 2020. This is because patients seek telemedicine services for various purposes starting from mild or moderate health issues to emergency situations. The payers segment consists of insurance companies that pay the telemedicine service providers on behalf of patients. Presently, not all telemedicine services are covered by insurance. Although Medicare covers limited telehealth services in specific rural areas, patients need to visit clinics for completion of a session. This segment is expected to witness steady growth in the coming years.
Telehealth solutions improve healthcare quality and offer convenience for healthcare providers in terms of quick access to patient records, improved decision support, provides clinical alerts, and real-time quality reporting. eHealth solution offers great convenience to healthcare professionals in terms of patient workflow and data management, these benefits are expected to boost the usage of telemedicine by providers over the forecast period.
The tele-hospitals segment dominated the market for telemedicine and held the largest revenue share of more than 50.0% in 2020. The segment is expected to witness a steady growth rate throughout the forecast period. Telemedicine services are generally preferred in emergency care.
The tele-home care solutions are projected to register significant growth in the coming years as the adoption of remote patient monitoring devices is increasing. The supportive government initiatives, increasing awareness amongst patients towards their health concerns, and high penetration of internet-based solutions are some of the factors attributing towards the segment growth.
North America dominated the market for telemedicine and accounted for the largest revenue share of 34.4% in 2020 owing to high demand in the recent past followed by Europe. These regional markets are expected to show a similar trend over the forecast period due to rising healthcare awareness coupled with cloud-based technologies acceptance over the forecast period. A developed region such as North America has accounted for the maximum revenue share in the global industry due to the constant research and development initiatives.
Developing regions such as Asia Pacific and the Middle East and Africa are expected to experience positive growth in the industry owing to rapid demand for healthcare assistance, especially in the rural areas. Emerging economies including India and China are estimated to witness growth over the next eight-year period. Innovation and development towards telecommunication are anticipated to enhance further the growth in this region in near future.
