are autonomous, non-invasive devices that perform specific medical functions such as managing treatment of chronic diseases or monitoring vital signs of human body. A wearable medical device incorporates capabilities such as wireless data transmission, real time feedback and assessment and so on. Many products with such capabilities are currently commercially available in the market and are targeted at health marketers, researchers, health conscious individuals, and athletes.The Global Wearable Devices Market is estimated to reach $41.3 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 21.3% during 2015-2020 from around $15.7 Billion in 2015.
Sleep trackers are the fastest growing product segment currently followed by wearable continuous blood glucose monitors and respiratory monitors according to IndustryARC. The North American Market is estimated to grow at 21% during the forecast period to reach $19.3 Billion by 2020. The U.S is the largest Market in this region followed by Canada and Mexico.
The global shipments of wearable medical devices is also estimated to reach 422.5 millon units by 2020.
The current generation of Wearable Medical Devices mostly relies on user intervention to record data that is processed offline later on. The market has seen a dramatic rise in recent years owing to factors such as increase in health consciousness among people, increase in health consumer behavior among people, greater health trend to move from hospital care to home care and subsequently to personal care and so on. As a result, medical device manufacturers are shifting their focus from fully fixed equipment to portable devices and more recently to wearable ones.
Based on the fact that wearable medical devices offer solutions for both personal (patient) and user (physician or health care provider),
they can be broadly classified into three categories -
- Wearable Therapeutic Devices
- Wearable Diagnostic & Monitoring Devices
- Wearable Rehabilitative Devices
The millennial population has evolved themselves into more information oriented generation that has been facilitated by the revolution in computing technology. As the consumers from this age group are becoming more health conscious than their predecessors amidst the fast paced life, the wearable medical devices market is set to grow.
