About the Market

The global wearable medical device market was valued at USD 4 billion, while North America's market was worth USD 1.83 billion, in 2015. Demand for wireless monitoring devices, dealing with chronic diseases and healthy lifestyle drive the market. They can be categorized by their applications as home healthcare, remote patient monitoring, and sports & fitness. Based on the site of application, the wearable devices market is segmented into handheld, shoe sensors, headband, strap/clip/bracelet etc. Strap/clip/bracelet or wrist-worn devices hold over 40% of the market. Cost effective monitoring and lack of awareness are major challenges the industry faces in developing countries as compared to developed ones. North America is estimated to hold majority shares due to quick acceptance by consumers of technologically advanced products and their increasing demand for on-the-move diagnostic products; while Asia-Pacific is witnessing the fastest growth. Google, Nike, Apple, and Fitbit Inc. are few tech giants involved in the launch of innovative products that are predicted to boost growth.

About the Geography

Colombia is the third largest country in Latin America with a very good education system and literacy rate. It has huge petroleum reserves and mineral sources, which contribute to its high GDP. The presidential republic government is a stable one as compared to other Latin American countries. The country has a seen a consistent growth in the last two decades and is the best country in Latin America for ease of doing business. It also has many trade agreements with the EU and is located at strategically with modern port facilities, which provide the country access to major markets, help in the rapid expansion of extractive industries, lower the unemployment rate, and kept the inflation in check.

The government has 13 trade agreements in force with CAN, Mercosur, Caricom, G3, EFTA, US-Colombia Trade Agreements and is currently negotiating 8 more. The country has been facing challenges like corruption, terrorism, and poor infrastructure.The difficult geography and poor transport infrastructure are not helping the government either but haven’t slowed down development.

Colombia’s credit rating was recently raised to Investment Grade by Moody & Standard & Poor.
