The Global Wearable Medical Device Market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 18% during the forecasted period 2017-2023. The market generated near around USD 2 billion during 2016 and is expected to reach approximately USD 6 billion by the end of the forecasted period.
Wearable medical devices have become a trend among youth today. People are now concerned about their health and fitness. These devices keep a track of number of activities performed by an individual, for instance, number of steps taken while walking. Extensive use of fitness trackers by adults and strict regulations governing standards for the manufacturing of medical devices also boost the demand for wearable medical devices. Prominent market players are now targeting the youth by product differentiation and selling the devices at affordable prices.
The wearable devices are generally used in hospitals, at home and by individual person for his or her personal fitness. The wearable devices are easy to use and provide individual real time information about the heart rate, blood pressure, weight, sleeping and other such information related to health and maintain life healthy in various ways. In August 2016, Philips launched a new line of wearable health devices listed with the FDA. Furthermore, innovation and advancements in wearable technology, especially miniaturization of sensor technology, wireless communication technology, and wearable computational technology trigger the development of small, durable, comfortable, safe and low cost wearable medical devices. The miniaturization of wearable devices has also enabled clinical monitoring beyond the hospital area, in the home or during outdoor activities. In May 2015, Bayer Material Science LLC launched a new polycarbonate blend for wearable medical devices. This device can perform a variety of important tasks, such as monitoring vital signs or delivering drugs.
Wearable medical devices market is flourishing and is expected to continue its speedy growth due to changing lifestyle of people, increasing prevalence of obesity and diabetes and growing awareness about health. According to the International Diabetes Federation, about 420 million adult population worldwide was suffering from diabetes in 2016, which is increasing at the rate of 8.4% per year and is expected to reach 625 million by 2040. High cost of fitness trackers may restrain the market growth.
