Market Overview

The portable medical devices market will show a rapid growth due to the escalating demand for portable medical devices and wearable electronics, an increase in technological advancements and the rise in the geriatric population.

The pace of population aging around the world is increasing dramatically across the globe. According to the United Nations Report, the global population aged 60 years or over has been numbered 962 million in 2017, more than twice as large as in 1980 when there were 382 million older persons worldwide. The number of older persons is expected to double again by 2050 when it is projected to reach nearly 2.1 billion. Globally, the number of persons aged 80 years or over is projected to increase more than threefold between 2017 and 2050, rising from 137 million to 425 million. Therefore, the increasing use of portable medical devices in the healthcare industry is beneficial for accurate real-time monitoring, diagnosis and tailored treatment of conditions in the older population.

The industry is also expected to witness strong growth mainly due to the rising incidents of chronic diseases, increasing adoption of medical imaging, monitoring, and implantable devices; rising expenditure on healthcare across the world and a growing elderly population.
