Moreover, the rapidly aging population in the U.S., Canada and Mexico will drive the need for efficient emergency medical alarms in hospitals and assisted living facilities.
Asia-Pacific market will show significant share in the global nurse call systems market, with revenue of $1.939 billion in 2017 and growing at a highest CAGR of 12.21% to reach $3.868 billion by 2023. Asia-Pacific is the most promising region globally for nurse call systems. Few factors which have a positive impact on the market in this region are: rapidly aging population driving the demand for efficient emergency monitoring systems, increased healthcare expenditure by governments across different countries in this region, and technological advancements making latest wireless nurse call systems highly affordable and accessible.
Selected / Sample Analysis done in the full Report:
- The quality of nurse call systems manufactured depends on both the components used and the technologies adopted. There is very less scope for innovation in traditional nurse call systems. However, the newer systems are integrated with other healthcare devices and use latest technologies. Once the design, product features, specifications and patent filing are finished, either through its own R&D activities or licensing agreements with research institutes or universities, the company starts the manufacturing process.
- The company procures a variety of raw materials and electronic components from suppliers, or produces its own components. It then manufactures the NCS either at their own factory, or outsources the production process to a third-party manufacturer. Sometimes, these NCS are also integrated with other smart devices / integrated communication systems and wireless nurse communication devices such as radios and pagers. This requires the company to develop or collaborate with other companies to provide software compatible with its product for integrating these devices.
- The finished products, nurse call systems, are then distributed to wholesalers or retailers through global or regional distributors which then reach the end-users such as hospitals, assisted living and senior living facilities. These systems are also sometimes integrated with other portable communication devices and healthcare monitoring devices, based on the requirements of the end-users.
Excerpts on Market Growth Factors Mentioned in the Full Report:
