Furthermore, by 2030, one out of every six people globally will age 60 years or beyond. As per the source mentioned above, the number of people aged 80 years or above is expected to triple between 2020 and 2050 to reach 426 million population.
Moreover, according to the latest data provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 9.6% of adults aged 45 to 64 years reported being diagnosed with chronic heart disease, or a stroke, in 2021, in the United States.
Therefore, with an increase in the aging population, the susceptibility to health-related issues also increases such as diabetes, fluctuations in blood pressure, heart problems, and others, can increase the demand for wearable medical devices, thereby propelling the growth for wearable medical devices overall market during the forecast period (2022-2027).
Moreover, another key factor responsible for the growth of the wearable medical devices market is the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases. For instance, according to the WHO 2021, as per the latest statistics, every year about 41 million deaths occur worldwide due to chronic diseases. Therefore, the mortality rates due to chronic diseases can be controlled by either taking proper care of physical fitness which can be done by using wearable medical devices, or by continuously monitoring life-threatening diseases and also providing continuous treatment to them using the wearable medical devices. Thus, this would increase the demand for medical wearable devices which will provide a conducive growth environment for wearable medical devices overall market during the upcoming years.
However, concerns related to individual privacy & data collection, incorporation of complicated & multidimensional technology thereby making its usage difficult, and stringent regulatory processes can hamper the global wearable medical devices market growth.
Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has positively impacted the wearable medical devices market. There was nationwide lockdown in almost every country, movement restrictions for non-essential goods, and unavailability of the workforce at the production sites which hampered the manufacturing rate of wearable medical devices but at the same time, COVID-19 had also increased awareness about physical fitness around the globe which surged the demand of monitoring devices such as fitness monitors, cardiac monitors, pulse oximeters, respiratory monitors, blood pressure monitors, and others. This increased the wearable medical devices demand significantly and in turn propelled the overall market. Along with the afore-said factor, the masses being vaccinated, relaxation in lockdown restrictions, and resumption of supply chains, logistics, and manufacturing units, the wearable medical devices demand also increased drastically and is anticipated to do the same during the forecast period.
Wearable Medical Devices Market Segment Analysis:
Wearable Medical Devices Market by Device Type (Diagnostic and Monitoring Devices [Vital Sign Monitoring Devices, Sleep Monitoring Devices, Electrocardiographs Fetal and Obstetric Devices, Neuromonitoring Devices, and Others] and Therapeutic Devices [Pain Management Devices, Rehabilitation Devices, Respiratory Therapy Devices, Others]), Product Type (Wristband, Headband, Ear Wear, Watch, and Others), Application (Sports and Fitness, Remote Patient Monitoring, and Home Healthcare), Distribution Channel (Online and Offline), and Geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World).
In the device type segment of the wearable medical devices market, electrocardiographs fetal and obstetric devices are expected to hold a significant revenue share in the year 2021.
The rapid growth of this segment can be attributed to the growing advantages and applications of the segment. Along with this, the surging product approvals, launches, and other strategic activities by key players will propel the demand of the segment during the forecast period.
The fetal monitoring devices help to hear the baby’s heartbeat. Furthermore, advantageous properties such as detecting changes in the normal heart rate pattern during labor, or preventing unnecessary treatments.
In addition, new product approvals are also likely to upsurge the electrocardiographs fetal and obstetric devices market during the forecasted period. For example, in June 2021, remote pregnancy monitoring company Nuvo Group announced the FDA supplemental 510(k) clearance to add a new uterine activity module to its INVU system. INVU is a physician-prescribed, wearable pregnancy monitor that allows women to remotely collect fetal and maternal heart rates.
Also, in June 2020, Philips, launched, the wireless Avalon CL Fetal and Maternal Pod and Patch. The Fetal and Maternal Pod and Patch allow for continuous, non-invasive monitoring of maternal heart rate, fetal heart rate, and uterine activity with a single-use, 48-hour, disposable electrode patch placed on the mother’s abdomen. The patch is designed to be placed on the patient by a clinician only once, unlike traditional elastic belts and sensors that require frequent repositioning.
Therefore, owing to the above-mentioned factors, the demand for electrocardiographs fetal and obstetric devices rises, thereby the category is expected to witness considerable growth eventually contributing to the overall growth of the global wearable medical devices market during the forecast period.
North America is expected to dominate the overall Wearable Medical Devices Market:
Among all the regions, North America is expected to dominate the global wearable medical devices market in the year 2021 and is expected to do the same during the forecast period from 2022-2027.
