Key Market Trends

Homecare Segment is Estimated to Register the Fastest Growth Rate Over the Forecast Period

The home care segment is estimated to register a significant growth rate over the forecast period. With the increasing cases of Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs), diabetes, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and other chronic diseases, which require proper maintenance of health records of the patient is likely to fuel the segment growth in upcoming years.

  • As per the data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as of September 2020, there are around 655,000 Americans that were suffering from cardiovascular disorders every year. Thus, it will increase the adoption of connected drug delivery devices in homecare settings. Connected devices can help with the administration of drugs even in the homecare settings without any errors associated with drug delivery and without the assistance of healthcare providers. Such factors are expected to drive the market in the coming years.

North America has Dominated the Connected Drug Delivery Devices Market

North America is anticipated to be the largest market for connected drug delivery devices owing to the rising incidence rate of chronic diseases as well as the presence of a huge target population base. As per the Asthma and Allergy Foundation America, in 2020, there are more than 25 million Americans that are found having asthma. This is 7.7 percent of adults and 8.4 percent of children. Asthma has been increasing since the early 1980s in all age, sex, and racial groups. Therefore, in such cases, connected drug delivery systems prove to be beneficial for the improvement of patient adherence in the direction of prescribed medications by physicians, hence driving the regional market.

In addition, the high per capita healthcare expenditure, rapid adoption of the latest technologies and devices, and rising awareness regarding the unfavorable effects of not following medication are driving the regional growth.
