Global Smart Medical Devices Market to Grow at a CAGR of 24% During 2021-2026, Aided by Advancement in Healthcare Sector

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Smart Medical Devices Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the market attained a value of about USD 8.3 billion in 2020. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 24% in the forecast period of 2021-2026 to reach a value of nearly USD 30.3 billion by 2026.

The global demand for smart medical devices accelerated due to the outburst of the coronavirus in 2020. Owing to stringent government regulations and the need to practice social distancing during COVID-19, manufacturers of medical devices are compelled to include the latest technology in medical devices to enable communication between the patient and the doctor, consequently aiding the market growth. The integration of smart technology like big data enables healthcare providers to collect patient data on a large scale, along with cloud-based storage solutions to store the data for long durations. Such integrations are strengthening the market growth as data collection allows the base for future developments in the diagnostic and therapeutic segment. With a cloud-based storage system, patient data can be transferred, if need be, across the globe, thereby maintaining the flow of treatment. Furthermore, owing to investments in research and development (R&D) projects to incorporate technology in medical devices, innovations like wireless glucose/ insulin monitoring devices are aiding the growth of the industry.

Philips (AMS: PHIA), a global leader in technological manufacturing, has recently unveiled its new production, a medical tablet for patient monitoring, in February 2021. The medical tablet is designed to provide easy access to patient information via wired or wireless hospital systems. The tablet is integrated with Philips IntelliVue XDS software that provides remote access to information without establishing a central monitoring system. In addition, the success of the product can also be attributed to the fact that it will allow doctors and patients to practice social distancing, thereby reducing the risk of infections. Furthermore, in small healthcare settings like clinics and homecare settings, the product allows ease of installation, thus making it cost-effective and favourable. Such innovations by market players are providing impetus to market growth.
