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

Saudi Arabia is a monarchical state with large oil reserves and is one of the leading members of OPEC. It is an oil-based economy and the government controls most major economic activities. Due to the low oil prices, the government is focusing on expanding its healthcare, education, nuclear, construction, and tourism industries. It is the third largest recipient of FDI in western Asia.

Saudi Arabia has a stable economy, a large local market with a high spending capacity, sound infrastructure, and a well-regulated banking system. Political and social tensions along with the policy of “Saudisation”, which favors domestic labor, have been major obstacles to FDI. Laws regarding intellectual property are not transparent and the laws enforce segregation of sexes in most business and social settings. To attract investors,the government recently announced the opening of the retail and wholesale sectors to 100% foreign ownership. Extensive privatization programs and controlled inflation add to the reasons for FDI. Investors can form joint stock companies, branch offices, and limited liability partnerships only, as a foreigner is not allowed to conduct business as a sole proprietor in Saudi Arabia.

The government also encourages companies to hire local women to improve workplace sex ratios.
