The global biomedical sensors market is projected to reach USD 14.58 billion by 2018 growing at a CAGR of 6.05% over the period 2014-2020. Technological advancements in the field of biomedical sensors using microtechnology and nanotechnology will bring tiny, robust, smart and cost-effective sensors that are adaptable to the individual genetic formulation. These sensors can be set to trigger alerts when they enlist unpredictable readings, screen the existence of toxic agents in the blood, or empower drug directly into the circulatory system. Investments in developing sensors with such capabilities will act as a major factor for the growth of the market and eventually these products will find huge demand in the healthcare industry.
Biomedical sensors' utility in the hazardous environments and geographical locations which are susceptible to natural disasters will drive the market. Increased demand from the healthcare industry to monitor patients with diabetic and heart conditions will further boost the growth of the market. Early detection of irregularities in the health status of the patients along with necessary medical attention will contribute to the better quality of life.
Even though biomedical sensors are playing a major role in life-saving situations, the market faces certain challenges such as patient's safety and comfort due to strong electromagnetic fields, transferring energy from external to internal parts with high efficiency and high data rates, limited computation and data storage, and ultra-low power consumption.
The global biomedical sensors market is segmented on the basis of type, application and geography. North America accounts for the largest market share, followed by Asia Pacific and Europe. France leads the market in the European region. While China and Japan lead the Asia Pacific market, India will record the highest growth.
