The modern lifestyle has resulted in an increase in stress, unhealthy habits, and diseases. New medicines are being invented to combat these diseases. The treatment of these diseases often requires timely medication. However, patients sometimes fail to take their medicines due to their busy schedules. The most common reason for the failure of a treatment procedure is the failure of patients to administer the dosage of medicine at the right time. Pill box timers can act as reminders for patients to take their medication. Pill box timers are gaining importance, owing to innovations and rapid advanced technologies in the pill box timer market. A pill box timer is a combination of a control board and sensor board. It is programmed to buzz at the time prescribed for taking the medicine. Various pill box timer brands use different power sources for signaling. Pill box timers use text, light, sound, and phone calls to remind patients to take medicines. Advanced pill box timers are also connected to blood glucose monitors and blood pressure monitors. These types of pill boxes are available in various sizes and shapes. Advanced pill box timers can store everything, right from water bottles to phones and even money. The material used for manufacturing pill box timers may differ from manufacturer to manufacturer. Usually, pill box timers are made of plastic and metal. These materials offer durability. Increase in workloads and changing lifestyles are major factors driving the need for pill box timers. Rise in work pressure in the private sector and increase in the adoption of fitness devices have significantly boosted the pill box timer market. Increase in demand for smart pill box timers is driving manufacturers to launch new product lines that are IoT (Internet of Things) enabled. However, a rise in the availability of counterfeit and low-quality products is a key concern to pill box timer manufacturers, as it affects their brand image and profitability in the market.
