Tele Home Category To Witness Higher Growth Rate in Telemedicine Industry

North America Is Projected To Be Largest Market

North America held the largest share in the telemedicine market in 2019, and the situation is predicted to remain unchanged during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the surging prevalence of chronic and lifestyle-associated diseases, rising geriatric population in the region, and increasing government funding and grants for telemedicine.

The prevalence of cancer and other chronic diseases is significantly high in the North American geriatric population, which further propels the need for advanced healthcare systems. The region is witnessing a rapid increase in its geriatric population, which has created a significant positive impact on the growth of the North American telemedicine market.

The prevalence of chronic diseases, such as CVDs, cancer, stroke, respiratory diseases, and diabetes, is increasing due to the alterations in lifestyle and lack of access to preventive care. The causes of chronic diseases may vary from genetic disposition to environmental factors and oxidative stress. Hence, the rising cases of chronic diseases are favorably impacting the growth of the telemedicine market globally.

Increasing Healthcare Cost Is Supporting Growth of Industry

Globally, the healthcare cost is increasing across various hospitals and nursing homes, which is becoming a major cause for concern among patients and healthcare providers. Some of the factors that contribute to this escalating healthcare cost are the expensive new technologies and drugs, high cost of healthcare goods and services, high administrative cost, and mounting physician fees. According to a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) report, the healthcare cost in the U.S. is projected to grow from an average of 17.7% in 2018 to an average of 19.7% by 2028. Healthcare providers are facing enormous pressure due to the increasing healthcare cost. Telemedicine offers quality services at low costs, while improving and maintaining the quality of the care provided. Thus, telemedicine is an efficient way to curb the rising healthcare cost across the globe, which further helps in the growth of the telemedicine industry.
