North America Wireless Healthcare Market Analysis

The North America Wireless Healthcare Market size is estimated at USD 63.76 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 197.67 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 21.82% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

  • The demand for remote patient monitoring (RPM) solutions is anticipated to rise due to the increased prevalence of chronic diseases, the aging population, and the need to reduce healthcare costs. Wireless devices and wearables that monitor patients' essential signs and health metrics remotely can lead to the early detection of health issues and enhance patient outcomes.
  • Wireless radio frequency identification (RFID) technology also allows hospitals to track the real-time location of critical equipment and the condition of the equipment. The Shands Hospital in Florida experienced a 98.8% reduction in the hours spent searching for missing items by adopting wireless technology.
  • There is an increased number of services and applications associated with the Internet of Things (IoT) across different end-user industry disciplines. IoT has evolved from RFID and wireless sensor network (WSN) technologies to more advanced technology, with the integration of cloud computing, Internet services, cyber-physical systems, and interconnections between hardware and software devices. Machine learning (ML) and AI capabilities are taking their skills to the next level, especially in the current healthcare industry.
  • A worldwide shortage of healthcare workers is another parameter influencing the market dynamics. For instance, the United States alone is projected to face a shortage of 124,000 physicians by 2025, which is much less than the anticipated shortages in Asian and African regions. These factors indicate the need for upgraded medical facilities and improvement in the healthcare sector, which, in turn, is expected to drive the market, as advanced and connected medical equipment is likely to experience more demand.
  • The development of the wireless healthcare industry has been significantly supported by ongoing developments in wireless communication technologies, such as 5G, the Internet of Things, edge computing, and artificial intelligence (AI). These technologies can enable faster and more reliable data transmission, real-time monitoring, and advanced analytics, enhancing healthcare delivery and patient outcomes.
  • However, collecting, transmitting, and storing sensitive patient data through wireless healthcare technologies might raise significant concerns about data security and patient privacy. Breaches or unauthorized access to patient information can weaken trust and hinder the adoption of wireless healthcare solutions.
  • Further, COVID-19 had a typically positive impact on the North America Wireless Healthcare market. The pandemic highlighted the importance of remote healthcare delivery and monitoring, accelerating the adoption of wireless healthcare technologies. Moreover, the need for social distancing and reducing in-person interactions during the pandemic led to a surge in telemedicine and remote monitoring services.

North America Wireless Healthcare Market Trends

Growing Presence of Digital Health Startups and Increased Investments in Healthcare Technology to Drive the Market Growth

  • The rise of startups in the wireless healthcare domain leads to the creation of specialized solutions catering to specific medical conditions, patient demographics, and healthcare scenarios. These tailored offerings ensure that wireless healthcare technologies are designed to meet North American patients' diverse and evolving needs.
  • For instance, in July 2023, Herself Health, a business that provides primary care for women over the age of 65, said that it had secured a USD 26 million Series A fundraising round. Further, in August 2023, Daybreak, a United States-based healthcare startup, announced a USD 13 million Series B funding, which Union Square Ventures is leading. The current strategy is to expand its service footprint across additional school districts nationally.
  • Many startups focus on telehealth platforms and remote monitoring solutions that utilize wireless communication. These technologies enable virtual consultations, remote diagnostics, and continuous health tracking, ensuring patients receive timely care and monitoring from the comfort of their homes.
  • The surge in investments in healthcare technology, particularly in the wireless healthcare sector, injects capital into startups and emerging companies. This financial support accelerates wireless healthcare innovations' research, development, and commercialization, fostering market growth.
  • Moreover, as per StartUp Health, eight of the ten most significant investments in the field of digital health were made in the United States in 2022. Ultima Genomics, a US business, received USD 600 million in investment, making it the biggest deal. Such instances indicate the country's increased focus on investments in health startups, thereby contributing to the market growth.

United States to Hold a Significant Market Share

  • The United States is positioned to guide the region's wireless healthcare revolution with its robust healthcare infrastructure, technological expertise, and strategic investments, driving transformative changes in patient care, healthcare delivery, and overall wellness management.
  • Further, the country hosts a vibrant digital health ecosystem encompassing a wide spectrum of stakeholders, including healthcare providers, technology companies, regulators, insurers, and patient advocacy groups. This collaborative environment accelerates the adoption and integration of wireless healthcare solutions.
  • In addition, the United States has witnessed significant growth in telehealth and virtual care, driven by the need for remote healthcare services. Wireless technologies enable seamless telehealth consultations, remote monitoring, and digital health platforms, making the country favorable for wireless healthcare adoption.
  • Moreover, according to the American Medical Association (AMA), in 2022, tele-visits or virtual visits account for a more significant adoption rate, accounting for about 80% of the respondents, owing to the increased significance of efficient and improved patient care in the country.
  • Further, the United States serves as an innovation hub for wireless healthcare technologies, promoting the creation of innovative solutions that can transform patient care, diagnostics, treatment, and preventive measures.
