Factors such as chronic diseases, an aging population, remote healthcare consultations, and digitalization investments have spurred the adoption of smartphones, connected wearables, telehealth, and electronic medical records.
China’s Dominance: China leads the Asia Pacific region due to increased smartphone and internet penetration, growing awareness of remote healthcare services, a burgeoning elderly population, and the integration of artificial intelligence in healthcare. The Chinese government’s commitment to AI research has fostered a robust startup and innovation ecosystem.
Global Digital Health Market Dynamics:
Rising demand for remote monitoring services has the potential to boost the growth of the digital health market. As, remote monitoring enables healthcare providers to monitor patients’ health conditions and vital signs remotely, eliminating in-person visits. This technology uses sensors, wearables, and apps to collect data and send notifications.
Demand for remote monitoring services is growing due to chronic diseases, aging population, and efficient resource management. It reduces strain on facilities, lowers costs, and plays a crucial role during emergencies. Digital health companies are investing in advanced monitoring technologies and data analytics to transform healthcare delivery worldwide. Further, the market is expected to increase due to rising penetration of smartphones, rapid urbanization, reduced cost of medical treatment, government support and regulatory initiatives, and healthcare data explosion etc.
Security Concerns can present several challenges for the digital health market. Unauthorized access and hacking are primary concerns, as attackers may attempt to gain access to devices, intercept patient’s sensitive data, or execute malicious activities. Other challenges that digital health market faces is knowledge gap and interoperability issues.
A major trend gaining pace in digital health market is Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning as it assists in drug discovery, disease prevention, clinical research, clinical decision support, medical imaging, and diagnostics, and much more in no time.
Also, AI enables faster and more effective utilization of data collected from genetic testing, health records, medical facilities, clinical trials, and research. AI in personalized healthcare further aids in faster and more targeted drug discovery. This reduces patient-specific complications and facilitates treatment development for rare diseases.
More trends in the market are believed to augment the growth of digital health market during the forecasted period include, use of AR/VR in healthcare, emergence of 5G technology, cloud-based healthcare, internet of medical things (IoMT), rising popularity of telemedicine and telehealth, out of hospital care, blockchain technology, etc.
