Key Market Trends

Remote Patient Monitoring Segment is Expected to Grow Rapidly Over the Forecast Period in the Europe Wearable Medical Devices Market

The rise in the number of people with chronic medical conditions and an increase in the geriatric population are the major factors driving the growth of remote patient monitoring. Implementation of remote patient monitoring (RPM) can improve the management of chronic diseases by measuring critical risk indicators, such as glucose, blood pressure, etc. With the help of this, patients can use a mobile medical device to perform a routine test and send this data to healthcare professionals in real-time.

According to the Office for National Statistics (UK), in 2018, approximately 161 men and 117 women (per 100,000 population) died due to respiratory diseases in England. Moreover, the North West of England had the highest mortality from respiratory diseases for men at almost 190 (per 100,000 population) while the North East had the highest female rate at 150 deaths (per 100,000 population). Hence, by using respiratory therapy devices which are expected to lower the mortality rate or it may also help in monitoring the diseases.

Implementation of RPM can improve the management of chronic diseases by measuring critical risk indicators, such as glucose, blood pressure, etc. RPM has various benefits for end-users and hospitals, such as low cost of healthcare, reduction in extended hospitalization, and fewer doctor appointments, among others. This can also help to reduce the cost associated with the treatment of chronic diseases. Thus, owing to above factors the segment is expected to show growth in coming years.
