Published Date : Feb 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global wearable medical devices market size is expected to be worth around US$ 196.5 billion by 2030 from valued at US$ 21.5 billion in 2021 and growing at a CAGR of 28% during forecast period 2022 to 2030. Rising demand for hi-tech products and continuous health monitoring is fueling the market growth.

The increasing prevalence of obesity coupled with rising awareness about physical fitness is encouraging people to exercise and adopt other fitness-related activities. Wearable devices such as smart bands and smartwatches help in monitoring fitness parameters consisting of calories burned, footstep count, heart rate, and distance covered. The wearable devices companies offer guidance from experts who are certified dieticians or nutritionists, and hence, this business model is also generating hefty demand for these ancillary products and services.

Companies such as Google, Fitbit, Apple, and Nike are working toward the launch of new innovative products, thus portraying a high growth rate in the market. Smartwatches and wristbands are the current focal point of product development and innovation, leading to abundant availability of such instruments. For instance, HealthPatch, a product of Vital Connect, was launched in March 2014. The product is an adhesive patch that can be placed anywhere on the chest and is used to regulate biometrics such as heart rate, skin temperature, body posture, and activities like steps walked.

The COVID-19 pandemic somehow has positively impacted the market owing to the increasing demand for telemedicine. The WHO guidelines of social distancing and avoiding public gatherings increased the adoption of telemedicine among physicians for treating patients from a distance. The growth of telemedicine and expansion of applications to integrate Artificial Intelligence (AI) has led to market growth.
