Market Overview

The global healthcare satellite connectivity market studied is expected to grow with an estimated CAGR of 7.1%, over the forecast period.

The Covid-19 pandemic had affected the demand for global healthcare satellite connectivity market in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a dramatic acceleration in the use of telehealth, with the percentage of customers using it to replace postponed medical visits rising from 11% in 2019 to 46% in 2020. According to data released by the United States National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health in November 2020, several hospitals and medical practices have switched to using telemedicine to conduct unneeded appointments as the coronavirus epidemic persists. An analysis of patterns at NYU Langone Health (New York, United States) revealed an 80% reduction in in-person visits and a 68.3% increase in telemedicine visits in 2020.

The chronic diseases like hypertension, high-cholesterol, arthritis, coronary heart diseases, diabetes, kidney disorders, depression, heart failure, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases are more common in the geriatric population. The global market for healthcare satellite connectivity has grown over time as the population ages and healthcare costs rise. These elements help the industry accept new technology more quickly. The best way to enable technology in medical services to deliver better healthcare is through satellite communication.

The growing healthcare spending on the development of telemedicine, eHealth, mHealth, and other telehealth technologies is currently driving the global healthcare satellite connectivity market. A significant development in the field of telemedicine and mobile healthcare is satellite-enabled technology. The market for healthcare satellite connection received a boost from rising device and consumer demand. The market's expansion has also been aided by the Internet of Things' (IoT) rapid adoption and rising demand for secure medical services. The adoption of information technology in medical offices and hospitals has also sped up the expansion of the global market for satellite connectivity in the healthcare industry.

In many rural areas, lack of healthcare infrastructure, skilled workforce, and access to quality health services is observed in developing countries. The combination of satellite communication and technology-enabled services helps to enhance access to better healthcare in these underserved locations. Through the use of satellite communication, medical practitioners can learn to diagnose more remotely by using digital imaging, remote patient monitoring, consulting, and access to live sessions.

Key Market Trends

Hospitals & clinics segment is Expected to dominate the market over the forecast period

The hospitals & clinics segment held the majority of the market. Some of the factors that contribute to the large share of the segment include the rising demand for effective hospital operations management, workflow streamlining, increased focus on improved patient safety, rising need to reduce associated high costs, and reduction of prescription and dispensing error.

The use of technology to manage and streamline operations in hospitals and clinics has increased.. Adopting technological solutions in a hospital's core operations has a number of advantages, including the ability to remotely monitor a patient's data and analyze it using real-time location systems (RTLS) are used to keep an overall patient database record and to monitor patient status in real-time, allowing for the delivery of improved therapies. As per the Pubmed Central publications, RTLS can also be used to track patients physical movements, especially in the case of Alzheimer's and dementia patients. When a patient comes too close to an entrance or an exit, for example, or wanders away from a designated area or tries to escape the building, an RTLS can warn staff and locate the resident.

Healthcare Satellite Connectivity Market Share

North America segment is Expected to dominate the market over the forecast period
