The wearable medical devices market value was $10.6 billion in 2019, and it is predicted to rise to $67.2 billion by 2030. Furthermore, the market is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 18.3% between 2020 and 2030. The increasing demand for technologically advanced products, rising fitness consciousness, surging population of geriatric people, and growing prevalence of chronic diseases are the major factors fueling the expansion of the market.
The fitness trackers category is generate the highest revenue in the forthcoming years, under the type segment. This is credited to the growing consciousness of people regarding the number of calories being burned, number of steps being taken, and their overall health condition. Besides this, the cost-effectiveness of fitness trackers is propelling their popularity.
The sports & fitness category is predicted to demonstrate the fastest growth in the coming years, under the application segment. This is attributed to the fact that people are rapidly becoming aware of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and the growing requirement for monitoring the health of athletes around the world.
The online category dominated the wearable medical devices market in 2019, under the distribution channel segment. This was because of the availability of a diverse range of wearable medical devices on e-commerce platforms at cost-effective rates and the online payment and home delivery services provided by such portals.
North America held the largest share in the wearable medical devices industry between 2014 and 2019. This is credited to the existence of advanced healthcare infrastructure and several leading market players in the region. Apart from this, the large geriatric population, high incidence of chronic diseases, and frequent product launches contributed toward the expansion of the market in this region in the past.
One of the major market trends is the launch of products by the industry players. For example, mSafety, which is a platform that integrates a connected wearable device, cloud-based back-end solution, and wristwatch, was launched by Sony Corporation in October 2019. This product provides healthcare practitioners, general users, and mHealth app developers with a ready-made platform for remote health monitoring and mobile health (mHealth) applications. Similarly, Fitbit Inc. launched new activity and sleep tracker wristlets, under the Inspire HR and Inspire brands, in February 2019. These devices monitor sleep and activity, track the heart rate, and count the number of calories being burned by the wearer.
One of the major wearable medical devices market drivers is the growing consciousness among the masses regarding health and fitness. The increasing prevalence of obesity is one of the biggest reasons behind the rising fitness consciousness of people. In addition to this, several organizations are conducting programs and seminars for raising public awareness about health and fitness. Furthermore, companies manufacturing these devices are increasingly offering users nutritionist- and dietician-backed advice, tips, and suggestions.
Players in the market for wearable medical devices can leverage the opportunities present in developing countries for augmenting their product sales and expanding their operations. Due to the slow economic growth, low public awareness about these devices, inefficient import and export operations, and high incidence of cybercrimes, the uptake of consumer electronic devices remains low in developing countries. Due to this reason, many emerging economies, such as India and Colombia, are taking measures for ensuring that patients receive timely medical care. This is, in turn, predicted to augment the sales of wearable medical devices in these countries.
