Market Overview

The South Korea Patient Monitoring Market is expected to register a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period, owing to the factors such as the increasing burden of chronic disorders and growing preference for home and remote monitoring.

In South Korea, there is an increasing respiratory disease burden. For instance, according to a research article by Jung Yeon Heo et al., published in PLOS ONE Journal 2018, the incidence of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) was 307.7 cases per 100,000 persons per year with an in-hospital mortality rate of 6.2%. The estimated annual incidence of pneumococcal pneumonia was 42.2 to 49.4 cases per 100,000 persons per year, increasing with age. The annual incidence of invasive pneumococcal diseases (IPD) had a range of 4.1 to 6.5 cases per 100,000 persons per year.

The above study results confirm that incidences of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP), pneumococcal pneumonia (PP), and invasive pneumococcal diseases (IPD) were consistently high, particularly in older people. This indicates rising respiratory-related diseases is expected to increase use of patient monitoring devices in the management of disease which shows positive impact on market growth.

In addition, according to a retrospective study by Hyungtae Kim et al., published in BMC Public Health Journal 2019, in South Korea, thre is a high prevalence and incidence of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and its risk factors in the adult population. The prevalence and incidence of ASCVD continued to increase with age until 79 years. Therefore the growing burden of such diseases is expected to increase the demand for monitoring systems in the market during the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Weight Management & Fitness Monitoring is Expected to Show a Significant Growth Rate During the Forecast Period

In South Korea, the adoption of a sedentary lifestyle such as physical inactivity, poor diet, high consumption of sugar, etc. has led to many of the chronic conditions such as diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and others.

According to the World Ageing 2019 report, estimates that a number of the population who are above 65 years of age in South Korea was 7.715 million (15.1%) in 2019 which is projected to reach 12.658 million (24.7%) in 2030. As the number of geriatric population is expected to increase in coming years who are more prone to chronic diseases such as diabetes and other diseases which ultimately rises the growth of the market in near future. Hence, it has become essential to manage the patient's overall health and therefore all these factors are expected to increase the demand for weight management & fitness monitoring.
