This research report on the multiparameter patient monitoring market covers sizing and forecast, share, industry trends, growth drivers, and vendor analysis. The study includes insights by Devices (portable/compact and fixed), Acuity Level (high acuity, mid acuity, and low acuity), Patient Group (geriatric group, adult group, and pediatric group), End-users (hospitals, ASCs, homecare settings, and others), and Geography (North America, Europe, APAC Latin America, and MEA)
The global multiparameter patient monitoring market is likely to witness absolute growth because of the increasing application in hospitals, home care settings, and ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs). These devices are widely used in ICUs, emergency departments, and general wards to continuously monitor vital signs such as heart rate, blood pressure, and respiration rate. The introduction of advanced technologies, such as real-time, continuous, and remote patient monitoring (RPM), is expected to influence the market during the forecast period.
Moreover, the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and the increase in the elderly population are likely to be the major drivers for the multiparameter patient monitoring market. Globally, the prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer is increasing at an alarming rate due to changing lifestyles, aging population, environmental pollutions, and increasing smokers; therefore, all these factors are expected to increase the demand for such devices. These devices are portable and do not hinder the mobility of patients and enable them to shift them within the ward or transfer from one hospital to another. Advanced healthcare infrastructure and favorable reimbursement policies allow a high adoption of these devices, thereby expecting to drive the market growth in developed economies during the forecast period.
The global multiparameter patient monitoring market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 4% during the period 2019–2025.
This research report includes a detailed segmentation by devices, acuity level, patient group, end-user, and geography.
Insights by Devices
The portable monitoring devices segment is likely to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The ease of remotely monitoring and the availability of portable features are expected to increase their application in-home care settings and enable real-time vital signs monitoring. These devices reduce continuous monitoring costs and decrease frequent hospital visits. There has been increased adoption of advanced RPM platforms in the remote healthcare market. The demand for real-time, remotely, and continuous patient monitoring is adding new dimensions to the global telehealth market. Moreover, the usage of portable systems enables hospitals to shift the patient from intense care units to normal wards without switching off multiparameter patient monitor systems.
The launch of advanced portable monitoring devices is likely to hinder the growth of fixed devices. Fixed monitors are majorly used in hospitals and ASCs. These devices limit the mobility of patients and are less preferred by healthcare providers. These types of devices have a high risk of losing data during power outages. Hence, these devices are less preferred and are expected to experience steady growth in the market.
Insights by Acuity Level
The high-acuity segment is likely to grow due to the growth in the occurrence of chronic diseases that require continuous monitoring. The demand for high-acuity monitors is expected to increase as patient monitoring in high-acuity conditions is a major priority for healthcare providers. However, these systems have a limitation due to restricted area usage and are only used in ICUs and operation theaters. Hence, there is a lower demand than low-acuity devices.
The mid-acuity level is expected to grow at the slowest rate on account of the low availability of vendors offering such monitors. These types of monitors are used in ambulances, and the patient's condition is unpredictable in such circumstances. Hence, ambulances prefer high-acuity monitors over mid-acuity, which is likely to impact the sale of these devices adversely.
The low-acuity level segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate. The growth is majorly driven due to the low cost of low-acuity monitors, which is expected to bolster the demand for these devices from developed and developing regions. These monitors are portable and offer advanced features of RPM that enable healthcare professionals to monitor the patient continuously. Hospitals are likely to emerge as the major end-user for these advanced feature monitors due to their cost-effectiveness.
Insights by Patient Group
The geriatric group segment dominates the segment and is expected to grow at the fastest rate because of the increasing elderly population that is vulnerable to chronic diseases and often requires immediate medical interventions. According to the WHO, there were around 962.3 million people aged 60 and above in 2017, and the number is expected to reach 2,080.5 million by 2050 globally, which is expected to impact the segment positively. The increasing number of premature births is likely to lead to the demand for pediatric multiparameter patient monitoring equipment. Around 15 million babies are born prematurely throughout the globe annually, and the number is growing YOY. These systems enable healthcare professionals to monitor heart rates, respiration levels, and vital organs to ensure the healthy growth of premature infants. The adult group segment is expected to grow gradually due to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and asthma in the adult population. The change in lifestyle patterns, lack of physical activities, and the increasing work-related stress both in developed as well as developing countries are likely to promote the sales of these devices.
Insights by End-user
The hospital segment is expected to grow during the forecast period due to the usage of patient monitoring devices in the emergency care setting, surgical units, and special wards to monitor the health condition regularly. The home care setting segment is expected to grow at a steady rate on account of the increasing awareness and adoption of home care monitoring systems. These devices enable to monitor vital signs at home and avoid regular hospital visits. This is considered to reduce hospital costs and help individuals to monitor their health regularly. Ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) are likely to grow at the fastest rate as these centers are cost-effective and offer high-quality care with a minimal indirect treatment cost. Chronic disease patients that do not have insurance coverage are expected to prefer these healthcare settings over hospitals. The cost of surgeries in these centers is also significantly low than in hospitals. Hence, the demand for same-day discharge (SDD) procedures is rapidly increasing, and the demand for access to multiparameter patient monitoring devices is likely to increase in these centers.
Insights by Geography
In 2019, North America dominated the market. The region is expected to grow at a steady pace due to the increasing old age population, the moderate increase in the ICU admission, and the availability of advanced technology for RPM. The presence of a large pool of population with several chronic diseases, coupled with high acceptance of advanced and innovative multiparameter patient monitoring devices, is likely to support the region’s dominance in the global market. Europe is expected to gradually grow on account of the rising incidence of chronic diseases. There are likely to be more than 50 million people in Europe having more than one chronic disease. Germany, France, the UK, Italy, and Spain are the major revenue contributors to the European market. The high awareness levels of the availability of multiparameter monitoring devices, an increase in R&D investment for the development of innovative devices, and growing technological advancements in new product approvals/launches are expected to offer a positive impact on growth during the forecast period. The APAC region is expected to witness rapid growth during the forecast period. India and China together have a significant population with chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes. The incidence of cancer in China and India was 4,285,033 and 1,157,294, respectively, in 2018. China is the major revenue contributor to the multiparameter patient monitoring market in APAC. Japan, India, South Korea, and Australia are expected to witness the significant growth rate because of the rise in healthcare expenditure and favorable public and private initiatives for an increase in healthcare access.
