Remote Patient Monitoring Devices Market (By Types: Heart Monitors, Breath Monitors, Physical Activity Monitors, Hematology Monitors, Body Temperature Monitors, Multi-sign Monitors and Others & By End Users: Home Healthcare and Ambulatory Care Centers) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020

Remote patient monitoring is an emerging healthcare solution that enables monitoring of patients who are away from hospital settings. Remote patient monitoring offers several advantages such as reduction in hospital visits, data recording for prolong period, quick and accurate results, reduced cost for patients and assistance to medical practitioner with historic patient data. In addition, remote patient monitoring also reduces the waiting time in hospitals and enables medical practitioners to access the patient records from multiple places. Furthermore, growing demand for electronic health record (EHR) is fueling the demand for remote patient monitoring devices since these devices offer integration with cloud data bases for data storage and access. Growing patient population, rising awareness of lifestyle disorders and technological developments in medical devices have accentuated the growth of remote patient monitoring devices market.

Heart monitors, breath monitors, physical activity monitors, hematology monitors, body temperature monitors, multi-sign monitors and others are some of the remote monitoring devices that are widely used. Rising incidences of chronic diseases that require continuous monitoring such as diabetes, blood pressure and cardiovascular conditions, propels the demand for medical devices. In 2013, heart rate monitors segment dominated the global remote patient monitoring devices owing to high demand for these devices mainly due to rising prevalence of cardiac diseases. Furthermore, rising geriatric population propels the prevalence of cardiac diseases globally. Thus, owing to increasing number of patients diagnosed with cardiac diseases accentuates the uptake the heart rate monitors.  

In 2013, ambulatory care centers segment accounted for the largest share in the global remote patient monitoring devices market. Growing geriatric population is primarily driving the demand for ambulatory care centers, as elderly people are at a higher risk of acquiring diseases and infections. However, rise in demand for home-based treatment as more number of patients opts for diagnosis and treatment of diseases at home boosts the home healthcare segment during the forecast period from 2014 to 2020. 
 
Geographically, North America contributed the largest share in the global remote patient monitoring devices market. Increasing incidences of cardiovascular and respiratory diseases coupled with rising preference to reduce hospital readmissions. Under the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program created by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, government of the U.S. has imposed penalty to hospitals. As a penalty government has announced reduction up to 1% in the Medicare payment per patient for hospital readmission within 30 days in 2013. Thus, to reduce the hospital readmissions, medical professionals are promoting remote patient monitoring in the region. 

The global remote patient monitoring devices market is a fragmented market with many local players competing with global players. In addition, presence of all the necessary resources is enabling easy entry of medical device manufacturers into the remote patient monitoring devices market. Thus, major players in the market are strategically collaborating with local players to offer innovative technologies and thereby sustain in the competition. In November 2014, LifeWatch AG partnered with Vital Connect, Inc., a health care company based in Silicon Valley. This collaboration enables LifeWatch to utilize Vital Connect’s HealthPatch MD as 1-lead ECG device in LifeWatch’s cardiac monitoring business. LifeWatch aims to expand its cardiac monitoring devices business by adding patch technology to its product offerings. Similarly, in December 2014, Omron Healthcare Inc. collaborated with AliveCor, Inc., a California-based company that provides mobile technology for heart health. The two companies aim to improve access to remote patient monitoring products through retail and online channels, especially for heart patients.

The remote patient monitoring devices market’s competitive landscape is also analyzed in detail, with the influence of major players examined through the SWOT and Porter’s five forces analyses.

Overview of the global remote patient monitoring devices

Remote patient monitoring devices are gaining demand due to various factors. The prime growth drivers for the market are the growing prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, and osteoporosis around the world. It is more feasible for both patients and doctors to check upon the patient’s progression once in a while rather than with regular visits to the hospital or hospitalization. The rise in the geriatric demographic all over the world is adding to this factor, since this demographic is most commonly treated for these conditions.

Growing load on hospitals to admit patients, complemented by the preference of patient to receive treatment in their own households, is also helping the global remote patient monitoring devices market.

The major restraint on the market is the reluctance of patients to have their daily lives logged and tracked through the remote monitoring devices. However, growing usage of remote patient monitoring devices would help increase the trust consumers place in them, thus helping demand.

Among the products in the global remote patient monitoring devices market, heart monitors, breath monitors, physical activity monitors, hematology (blood) monitors, and multi-sign monitors are the major categories. Heart devices, particularly ECG devices, were the leading category in the market as of 2013, due to the high incidence of lifestyle-induced cardiac diseases in developed countries. The high prices of ECG and other heart monitors are also responsible for their high valuation.

Geographically, the market for remote patient monitoring devices is the largest in North America. This region exhibits a confluence of all the major drivers of the market, including a large geriatric population, availability of advanced monitoring devices and the financial ability of the population to use such devices, and high prevalence of lifestyle diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, and other cardiac diseases. Growing impact of these very factors is expected to make Asia Pacific the fastest growing market for remote patient monitoring devices in the forecast period.
