Key Growth Drivers

The escalating requirement of real-time monitoring of chronic ailments including sleep apnea, cognitive disorders, heart ailments, diabetes, gastrointestinal disorder, movement disorder, and mental health issues most prominently witnessed in the geriatric population is likely to define the growth of the wearable medical devices market over the upcoming years. Moreover, the onset of new technologies such as service robots, AI, big data analytics, IoT, and advanced signal processing is likely to bring a paradigm shift in the functionalities or operations of wearable medical devices in the near future.

Moreover, wearable medical devices are a convenient means of assessing varied physiological features in human beings. Industry players are keen on including additional features so that these products can be used for the ambulatory purpose. This, in turn, will further expand the wearable medical devices market scope over the forecasting years.

Additionally, new wrist-mounted devices including smart watches & fitness bands are now available with drastic enhancement in battery longitivity and hardware miniaturization for transforming raw information into real-time interpretable information. Today, smart watches are one of the most popular wearable medical devices. Citing an instance, GlucoWatch® biographer, a first non-invasive glucose monitor smart watch approved by U.S. FDA for commercial use, is a wearable medical device offering constant, automated, exact, and non-invasive measurements of the glucose present in the human body. Reportedly, the device gets the data pertaining to the concentration of glucose in the body through reverse Iontophoresis via fluid of skin interstitial. This will create a lucrative demand for wearable medical devices in the foreseeable future.

Apparently, smart watches are also used to detect Parkinson's ailment in an individual through analyzing of tremor & balancing of dysfunction with an accelerometer. In addition to this, e-textiles or smart textiles or smart clothing are also used to monitor physiological signals like rate of heart beats daily, the temperature at regular intervals of time, and daily breathing rate as a routine activity. Apart from this, it also measures biomechanics and physical activities encompassing body acceleration and body motion. This will translate into the humungous growth of wearable medical devices market over the ensuing years.

With breakthroughs in sensor techniques, data analysis methods, MEMS, physiotherapy, telecommunications, and microelectronics, attachable health monitoring devices, also referred to as next-gen personal portable healthcare instruments are likely to be manufactured. This, in turn, is anticipated to offer bright growth prospects for the wearable medical devices industry over the forecast period.

North America To Lead Overall Wearable Medical Devices Industry Over 2019-2025

The regional wearable medical devices market growth over the forecast period is attributed to large-scale presence of industry behemoths in the countries like the U.S. According to survey conducted by Forbes in first half of 2018, nearly 32% of the millennial parents in the U.S. agreed that they will permit their teenage children to wear wearable AI health tracker The magazine also demonstrated that nearly 22% of millennial parents in the U.S. allowed the wearing of wearable AI health tracker for their children aging five years old.

Furthermore, it was found that the millennial parents in the U.S. were of the view that children of five years of age required constant monitoring as they are unable to know the warning signs of symptoms of severe diseases. Even, parents conveyed that wearable technology can monitor particular conditions of illness in the children as the latter are unable to communicate it to the parents. This has resulted in humungous demand for wearable medical devices in the U.S., thereby spearheading the growth of the wearable medical devices market in the North American sub-continent.
