Market Overview

The remote patient monitoring systems market was valued at USD 1,119.77 million in 2021, and it is expected to reach USD 1,730.92 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 8.54% during the forecast period, 2022-2027.

Globally, the COVID-19 pandemic put enormous pressure on hospitals and healthcare systems that were understaffed and overworked. Remote patient monitoring technology helped patients remain safe within their homes while reducing stress on hospitals, emergency rooms, and front-line healthcare workers during the pandemic, positively impacting the market. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has established a new regulation allowing healthcare practitioners to use Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Remote patient Monitoring (RPM) devices to assess patients' body temperature, respiration rate, heart rate, and blood pressure without invasive procedures. Companies are anticipated to invest in RPM devices to adapt their ready-to-work protocols during the pandemic because most COVID-19 patients are asymptomatic. COVID-19 has provided a strong foundation for clinicians and patients to use RPM effectively. According to a report published in NPJ Digital Medicine in 2021 by Jordan D. Coffey, the RPM technology engagement rate was 78.9%. Within 30 days of enrolment, emergency department visits and hospitalization rates were 11.4% and 9.4%, respectively, while the 30-day fatality rate was 0.4%. A multisite RPM program for acute COVID-19 disease care is feasible, safe, and has a low death rate. As a result, the number of RPM devices utilized worldwide grew during COVID-19.

The major factors driving the market include the rising burden of chronic diseases due to lifestyle changes, the rising geriatric population, and the growing demand for home-based monitoring devices. Remote patient monitoring is ambulatory healthcare that allows patients to use a mobile medical device to accomplish a routine test and guide the test data to a healthcare expert in real-time. Globally, the rising chronic disease population, the increasing aging population, and the demand for home-based monitoring devices are boosting the market growth. For instance, according to Globocan 2020, the new cancer cases that were diagnosed accounted for 19,292,789 in 2020 worldwide, with 9,958,133 deaths due to cancers globally. Among all cancers, breast cancer accounted for 2,261, 419 new cancer cases, followed by lung (2,206,771), Prostate (1,414,259) and colon (1,148,515) new cases in 2020.​

Worldwide, the use of home-based devices is increasing as these are simple and can be used by all age groups. Moreover, home-based devices are mainly utilized by the geriatric population as this population is more prone to chronic conditions. For instance, according to the World Population Ageing 2019 report, globally, in 2019, there were around 703 million people aged 65 years or over. This number is projected to double to 1.5 billion in 2050. Globally, the share of the population aged 65 years or over increased from 6% in 1990 to 9% in 2019, and this number is projected to rise further to 16% in 2050.

In addition, these devices are compact and portable, and patients can wear them all the time without unease. These devices also ensure that the patient’s condition is monitored continuously. Growing demand for home-based monitoring devices also boosts the market. According to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services 2021, remote monitors help hundreds of thousands of high-risk patients avoid being readmitted to the hospital and make the most of their healthy days at home. Clients who use remote monitoring report a 76% reduction in readmission rates, an average of 89% patient satisfaction, and a total medical cost savings of nearly USD 370 million.

Resistance from the healthcare industry professionals regarding the adoption of monitoring systems, lack of proper reimbursement policies in developed markets, and the stringent regulatory framework are the factors impeding the market growth.

Key Market Trends

The Multi-parameter Monitors Segment is Expected to Register Significant Growth over the Forecast Period

Multi-parameter monitors are devices with a single device that monitor various parameters, such as arterial blood pressure, heart rate, body and skin temperature, oximetry, and capnography. These devices have become popular as they are small, portable, and user-friendly.

Many people with COVID-19 have low oxygen levels, which can be an early warning sign that people need medical care. The impact of COVID-19 on the multi-parameter monitor's segment was positive because this device helped patients monitor oxygen levels using oximeters, which positively affected the market. For instance, according to a research article by Ingrid Torjesen published in BMJ Journal in October 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, NHS England purchased around 200,000 pulse oximeters for the home scheme to monitor oxygen saturation levels for people who do not need immediate hospital attention.

These multi-parameter remote monitoring devices are used by medical professionals and the health-conscious population, as sleep and activity monitors fall in these categories. The increased death rate due to chronic diseases across the developed countries, such as the United States, and the developing countries, raise awareness among people to use early and easy monitoring devices.

The market players adopted various strategies such as product launches, product developments, collaborations, and expansions to increase their market revenue. For instance, in December 2019, Masimo Corporation received the United States FDA approval for the Neonatal RD SET Pulse Oximetry Sensors.

Therefore, the rising focus on a healthy lifestyle, increasing concerns about the constant monitoring of patients' health parameters, and the growing trend of self-monitoring and preventive medicine are expected to drive the growth of the overall market.
