Ingestible Sensors Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Ingestible Sensors Market according to our research experts:

Healthcare/Medical Sector to hold a Significant Market Share.

The medical and healthcare industry is believed to have the largest market size in 2018 due to the presence of capsule endoscopes for nearly two decades in the market. In the medical sector, ingestible sensors are used in capsule endoscopy, patient monitoring, and controlled drug delivery applications. They notify physicians about drug interactions and the usage of particular drugs by patients, thereby improving medication adherence.

These additional advantages have further fueled their demand in the medical vertical. Capsule endoscopy has established itself as an effective and precise way of endoscopic imaging. As such, the reimbursements for capsule endoscopy procedures are also available in the developed markets. Furthermore, the increasing prevalence of gastrointestinal disorders is also expected to fuel the expansion of capsule endoscopy and is leading to the growth of the diagnosis segment of the market.
