GLOBAL VITAL SIGNS MONITORING DEVICES MARKET SEGMENTATION
This research report includes a detailed segmentation by
- Patient Group
INSIGHTS BY PRODUCT
Standalone vital signs monitoring devices have evolved over a short duration from individual measuring blood pressure monitoring devices (BP), pulse oximeters
, and temperature monitoring to a combined all-in-one device. There has been an increasing number of innovations in the product category, which is fueling the growth. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased challenges for the entire healthcare industry, thereby affecting the growth of the integrated vital signs monitoring devices market. Standalone devices are mainly used in recording several physiological functions such as body temperature and blood pressure among COVID-19 patients.
The growth in hospital admissions due to the COVID-19 virus and the rise in chronic diseases boost the integrated vital signs monitoring devices market. Also, integrated equipment has increased the demand from end-users, which provides quick medical assistance to avoid fatalities. This is leading to the moderate growth of integrated equipment. With increasing awareness, the demand for personalized and accurate integrated equipment is expected to grow lucratively in upcoming years.
INSIGHTS BY PATIENT GROUP
The geriatric patient population is growing at a faster growth rate as these patients require the continuous assessment of their vital signs, which is driving the market on a large scale. Hence, the increasing chronic disease prevalence in the elderly population influences the demand for vital sign monitoring devices. Also, the COVID-19 infection has severely affected the geriatric population due to their low immunity. The global geriatric population is expected to reach 2.1 billion by 2050. The population aged 60 years and above is growing faster than any other age group. These factors are likely to increase the adoption of several vital sign monitoring devices.
The adult population is moderately influencing the global market. In 2019, the adult patient group segment accounted for over 20% share. The market is growing, albeit at a steady rate. The prevalence of chronic diseases in the adult population is increasing due to changing lifestyles. Moreover, adults are fitness conscious, increasing the adoption of several monitoring devices such as vital parameters during workout sessions. Hence, the rising demand for vital sign monitoring devices, especially wearable vital sign monitoring devices, boosts the market growth.
INSIGHTS BY END-USER
Vital signs monitoring devices are in high demand in hospitals and ACSs. These devices facilitate early detection of the patient’s deteriorating health condition, thereby enabling speedy intervention from medical experts. Hospitals constituted the largest end-user in 2019. This dominion can be contributed to a large patient pool and high financing capability. These devices can be connected on a comprehensive platform through software wherein the hospital staff can easily monitor the patient’s vital signs in the single dashboard. This has increased their usage, especially in developed economies.
The demand for vital signs monitoring devices in-home care settings is likely to boost as patients increasingly prefer to take treatment and post-surgical care at home. The option of home healthcare
is cost-effective compared to hospitals. The increasing COVID-19 impact globally has increased the adoption of this equipment by individuals and hospital and home care settings. This has increased the usage of stand-alone equipment by end-users.
INSIGHTS BY GEOGRAPHY
North America currently dominates the market for vital sign monitoring, and it is expected to continue its stronghold for a few more years. The region is expected to increase its market share in the future owing to the well-established healthcare industry and better reimbursement facilities in the region. Factors such as the increasing geriatric population, the rising occurrence of interminable disorders, developing interest for remote patient monitoring and wireless devices combined with streamlined coverage policies are the main considerations crediting to its major share in the industry. Moreover, new product launches and product improvement/enhancements to earlier version vital signs monitors and favorable reimbursement policies will boost the market.
INSIGHTS BY VENDORS
