The wearable digital device segment dominated the global digital patient monitoring devices market in 2020, owing to the growing technological advancements in wearable medical devices and the surging incidence of chronic diseases.
For example, according to the American Heart Association, the number of deaths due to cardiovascular diseases was 17.6 million in 2016 and is projected to rise to over 23.6 million by 2030. Thus, the need of wearable devices has been increased, as it tracks and monitors physiological parameters like a heartbeat, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels, as well as helps physician for diagnosing.
Additionally, the rising penetration of smart devices and a growing number of smartphone-based healthcare applications are also driving the market demand for wearable medical devices, thereby augmenting the market growth. Wearable technologies in the medical sector consist of smart electronic devices which patients or consumers can easily wear, like smart watches, Fitbit, and others.
These smart devices collect data on patients' health and exercise. The rising market demand for these smart machines like fitness trackers, smartphones, and others will pave its way towards the market's growth. Apart from this, the integration of smart technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and 5G, in wearable medical devices is expected to create significant growth opportunities in the digital tools market over the forecast period.
Based on product segment, the diagnostic digital monitoring devices segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period as rising prevalence of chronic conditions such as diabetes, high preference for home healthcare and rehabilitation owing to the convenience of the services, and surging government initiatives are supporting the adoption of digital diagnostic monitoring devices.
For instance, blood glucose monitoring (BGM) devices are reasonably beneficial and essential for precise diagnosis and treatment. Blood glucose meters are electronic devices used to measure blood sugar levels, which is an integral step in diabetes treatment.
Similarly, Blood pressure (BP) is considered an indispensable indication for assessing physiological conditions. Blood pressure measurement is also one of the most common diagnostic tests that represent significant changes in blood volume, systemic vascular resistance, and heart-pumping efficiency.
North America is projected to hold the highest revenue share in the global digital patient monitoring devices market since the surging prevalence of diabetes, along with strategic initiatives opted by the private organizations indulged in offering digital patient monitoring devices. The United States digital patient monitoring devices market is primarily driven by the surging prevalence of diabetes among both male & female populations.
As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 34.2 million individuals are impacted by diabetes in the United States, about 10.5% of the whole population in 2018. The diagnosed population with diabetes in the United States accounted for around 26.9 million individuals comprising 26.8 million adult individuals.
Asia Pacific is expected to witness a substantial market growth in the global digital monitoring tools market due to the rising occurrence of chronic disease and the increasing geriatric population, and the growing number of smartphone users across the region. As per the National Institute of Population and Social Security, it has been estimated that the elderly population residing in Japan would make up 30% of the whole population by 2025, precisely followed by 35.3% by 2040, which is further supplementing the surge and adoption of digital devices.
