High Risk of Various Diseases among Growing Geriatric Population to Drive Demand for Medical Sensors
The increasing prevalence of diseases such as obesity, diabetes, kidney, respiratory, and cardiovascular diseases is driving the global medical sensors market. Thus, there is a high demand for reliable and accurate medical equipment for the growing patient population, which in turn is boosting the market for medical sensors. Sensors help in giving early warnings and lead to an accurate diagnosis of diseases and thus, their need will continue to remain in the coming years. The growing population of elderly people worldwide will be another driving factor for the medical sensors market. With age, the chances of having orthopedic diseases, neurological disorders, endocrine diseases, and oral diseases increases and this will create a heightened demand for medical devices and surgeries where real time sensors play a vital role. On the other hand, the high cost of medical sensors will act as a restraint.
Emergence of IT-based Medical Devices to Create New Opportunities
The application of IT in medical industry has revolutionized treatment methods for various diseases. The introduction of medical electronics with features such as wireless and multimedia will create a heightened demand for medical sensors. Various players in the market are investing extensively in research and development so as to develop IT-based medical sensor devices. Moreover, IT has increased the scope of medical sensors in newer medical applications such as a digital pill or ingestible sensor pill for tracking drug delivery.
