What are the Restraints being Encountered by Wireless Portable Medical Device Providers?
Wireless portable medical devices mainly work on wireless technology, and are prone to system-related breakdowns or discrepancies. Device-related issues such as memory problems, inaccurate results, and fluctuations in data are major restraints for the growth of the market.
Moreover, these devices are highly expensive and their maintenance cost is also very high. High maintenance cost and technical glitches are major restraining factors for the growth of the market.
Which Region Offers the Largest Opportunity for Wireless Portable Medical Device Providers?
North America holds the largest revenue share of around 42% for wireless portable medical devices.
Large-scale adoption of technologically advanced devices, high treatment rates, and supportive government initiatives for early diagnosis of diseases are among the few factors driving market growth in the region.
High adoption of monitoring, diagnostic, and therapeutic systems for disease management is anticipated to bode well for regional growth. The growing geriatric population and subsequently rising burden of chronic diseases is also propelling the market.
According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates published in 2017, nearly 30.3 million people in the U.S. were living with diabetes in 2015. This number is expected to continue growing, which, in turn, is anticipated to boost the adoption of technologies such as continuous glucose monitoring and insulin pumps in this region.
The market in Asia Pacific, on the other hand, is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 11% over the forecast period. Improving treatment rates and healthcare infrastructure along with the adoption of smart wearables are attributed to the regional market growth.
For instance, according to a Forbes article published in 2018, demand for smart wearables in India is expected to surge owing to changing consumer lifestyle, rising popularity of wearable technology, and increased accessibility of these devices.
