Nurse Call Systems Market Overview
The nurse call systems market is predicted to progress significantly in the coming years, on account of the increasing geriatric population, surging healthcare expenditure, rising incidence of chronic diseases, heavy investments in the healthcare sector, surging number of product launches, as well as technological advancements, and wide availability of insurance policies.
Integrated communication systems, button systems, intercom systems, and mobile systems are the various instruments that fulfil the purpose of calling a nurse. Among these, integrated communication systems are expected to account for the largest nurse call systems market size, as they are more efficient and useful than others, in a healthcare system. The highest CAGR would be experienced by mobile systems, due to the growing requirement for them.
Such devices can either be wireless or wired, of which wired systems are currently leading the nurse call systems market, on account of their cost-effectiveness, higher speed of signal transmission, and numerous government regulations, which make the use of such instruments mandatory. In the coming years, wireless systems are projected to witness faster industry progress, as their installation costs less, a wide range of portable systems are available, and they are easy to integrate with other equipment.
The major applications of all such devices are wanderer control, emergency medical alarms, and workflow support. Historically, the widest use of these instruments was for emergency medical alarms, as several products in this category have been launched by the industry players. Other reasons for their nurse call systems market lead is the fact that they result in better patient safety by decreasing the risk, are considered essential in healthcare facilities, and enable easy communication between patients and nurses.
Nurse call systems are deployed by clinics and physician offices, hospitals, ambulatory care centers, assisted-living centers and nursing homes, and various other end users. In the coming years, the largest nurse call systems market share would be held by hospitals, as a result of the rising geriatric population, increasing number of hospitals (both private and public), especially in developing nations, growing demand for effective communication in healthcare settings, and surging usage of advanced technologies for better clinical workflow.
Around the world, North America is the most productive nurse call systems market, as it witnesses heavy investments in the healthcare information technology infrastructure, modifications in reimbursement and insurance coverage policies, stringent regulations in regard to communication in healthcare facilities, and surging government funding for hospitals to adopt such systems. The fastest industry growth is expected from Asia-Pacific (APAC), as several global players are entering the region, healthcare infrastructure here is improving, and the patient volume in acute-care nursing homes and outpatient clinics is rising.
Nurse Call Systems Market Dynamics
The growing incidence of various chronic diseases is the key driving factor for the nurse call systems market prosperity. Among the various long-term diseases, cancer, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and cardiovascular diseases are the most common. These lead to high-number patient admissions at hospitals and long stays, during which nurses, doctors, and attendants have to be called multiple times in a day. Therefore, to ensure ready availability of medical professionals in patient rooms and other areas of healthcare settings, nurse call systems are essential.
Another prominent reason behind the growth of the nurse call systems market is the increasing population of the elderly, which, according to the latest estimates by the United Nations, would read 1.5 billion in 2050, growing significantly from 703 million in 2019. The elderly are the most-at-risk age group to health issues, on account of their compromised immune system, hormonal disfunction, and weakened musculoskeletal system. This is why they have to be hospitalized regularly, which further raises the demand for effective and quick doctor–patient communication.
Nurse Call Systems Market Competitive Landscape
Mergers and acquisitions, product launches, regulatory approval pursuance, geographical expansion, and partnerships and collaborations are the key measures being taken by the players in the nurse call systems market players to augment their profits.
