The incorporation of information technology and electronic communications utilized for various medical procedures to improve people's well-being is referred to as digital health. The fast use of innovative technologies, including wearable devices, mHealth Apps, orally administered sensors, and machine intelligence, have contributed to the market's rise.

Furthermore, widespread government backing and the introduction of favorable laws to stimulate the adoption of digital solutions are increasing the demand for the technology. Governments worldwide support the use of electronic intensive care units (e-ICU), which enable remote monitoring of patients via monocular cameras, high-speed broadband, and electronic equipment.

Lockdowns and travel bans were implemented to slow the spread of Covid-19 due to its overall infection rate. Medical providers and patients rapidly implement telehealth and telemedicine technologies to reduce in-person consultations. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic exposed the flaws in the current overcrowded medical systems. It highlighted the potential of digital solutions, which encouraged the use of these solutions and resulted in a sharp increase in their adoption rate.

Respective governments in both developed and emerging economies have altered legislation governing the use of digital technologies in healthcare. This has increased the usage of digital technologies, positively boosting industry growth. Furthermore, due to the increasing number of cases and the necessity to track the long-term impacts of vaccines, demand for EHR devices and medical analytics has increased.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The industry is developing due to rising smartphone penetration and improved global internet connectivity. Smartphones are now fitness monitors and communication and entertainment products. A Pew Research Center study from 2021 shows that 97.0% of Americans own smartphones.

Telehealthcare market segment is expected to witness the fastest growth

This annual growth is caused by factors such as development in internet connectivity, a rapidly increasing shortage of healthcare professionals, rapidly growing smartphone usage, rising medical costs, widespread adaptability of telehealth application areas, and rapidly increasing physician and patient implementation of these technologies. Rapid technical advancements and continuous telehealth application evolution fuel the segment's expansion.

Telecare services assist in bridging the availability and engagement barriers between medical professionals and patients. Telehealth services eliminate this need for in-person consultations, reducing the difficulty of organizing appointments and driving to the hospital, lowering care costs and unnecessary spending.

Moreover, businesses are developing chatbot services to offer first consultations or respond the basic medical questions. Favorable government policies, more technical collaboration among market parties, and the limits imposed by the Covid-19 epidemic all contribute to the growing digitalization trend in medical sector.

Digital health technology such as telecare and remote patient are extensively employed in long-term care systems and infrastructure. Additionally, the integration of cutting-edge IoT technologies, improving connection, and the rising need for virtual medical consultation due to the COVID-19 pandemic are driving the segment's rapid expansion.

For instance, as per CDC, The pandemic-related telemedicine regulatory changes and public medical recommendations may have contributed to the 154% rise in telehealth visits during the final week of March 2020 compared to the same period in 2019.

Services market segment accounted for the highest market share in 2021

This is primarily due to a considerable increase in software upgrades and quick improvements in both software and hardware. Training and integration, installation, and upgradation are examples of these services. The rise of the services sector is fueled by the rising need for cutting-edge software platforms and systems, such as electronic medical records, and the increasing demand for the upgrades and training needed to operate these technology solutions.

Increasing investment in the digital medical system, particularly in emerging nations, will fuel service demand in the future years. Furthermore, rising demand for platforms such as Electronic Health Records (EHR) drives up service demand, as many businesses focus on procuring post-installation services such as staffing, optimization, training, and numerous other benefits.

In addition, the expansion of the services sector is anticipated to be boosted by improvements in medical IT infrastructure and the adoption of technological medical solutions in emerging nations. Medical facilities are quickly implementing these cutting-edge technology solutions and platforms in emerging markets to improve their organizational workflows and medical, operational, and economic outcomes.
