Medical Device Connectivity Market to Grow 10-Fold by 2031
The global medical device connectivity market is primed for explosive growth in the next 10 years as telehealth gains a stronger foothold among patients and providers and clinicians increasingly turn to remote patient monitoring to augment services.
Research Nester data indicates the global medical device connectivity market generated $1.51 billion in revenue last year. The market's value is expected to balloon 10-fold in the next decade to reach $10.89 billion, due to governments worldwide promoting digital health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the Health Assembly, in the year 2013, adopted a resolution on the standardization and interoperability of eHealth. Additionally, in 2020, the global strategy on digital health 2020-2025 was endorsed by the 73rd World Health Assembly. Besides this, the market's growth can also be attributed to the need for advanced diagnostics and therapies, as well as the growing concern for different types of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), which according to WHO, kill 41 million people each year and constitute 71 percent of all global deaths.
