Global Market for Patient Monitoring Devices to Reach Nearly $21 Billion in 2018; Asia

Growing At 8.9% CAGR


Wellesley, Mass., MAY 6, 2014 BCC Research (www.bccresearch.com) reveals in its new
report,PATIENT MONITORING DEVICES: GLOBAL MARKETS, the global market for patient
monitoring devices (PMDs) is expected to grow to nearly $21 billion by 2018, with a five-year
compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.4%. The Asian market, the fastest growing regional
segment overall, is growing at a significant 8.9% CAGR.
Drivers of market growth include multiple product improvements: a decrease in the physical size
of monitoring devices; enhanced utility, performance and sensitivity; usability and portability of
devices; and increasing availability of remote/wireless patient monitoring equipment and
systems. Also, remote patient monitoring and implantable patient monitors are areas of high
growth potential that are gaining attention and interest.
PMDs, including those related to cardiac, critical care, neonatal care, gynae/OC care, diabetes,
respiratory disorders, and neurology, play a pivotal role in health management of patients. The
North America segment, by far the largest PMD market, is expected to grow to $9.1 billion by
2018, and register a CAGR of 7.1%.
However, Asia, which was valued at $2.7 billion in 2013, is expected to jump to $4.2 billion by
2018, outperforming all other regions.
PMDs is an unevenly penetrated market, with different devices at different stages of their
product life cycle and market penetration across different regions, said BCC Research
healthcare analyst Himani Singhi Wadhwa. Devices specialized for diseases or patient
conditions, such as glucose monitoring devices, cardiac and respiratory monitoring devices
other than patient monitors, are some of the key opportunity areas that hold moderate to high
growth potential for future growth of the PMDs market. In the report I've also covered promising
new technologies and products that are still in the development and testing stages but which are
likely to be commercialized successfully in the next five years.
PATIENT MONITORING DEVICES: GLOBAL MARKETS provides an overview of the global
market for patient monitoring devices, accessories, and consumables that are used to measure,
display, and document physiological information obtained at regular intervals over time from
sensors attached to the patient or other input devices. It includes analyses of global market
trends, with data from 2012 and 2013, and projections of CAGRs through 2018. An examination
of the market by application (e.g., intensive care, neonatal/pediatric care), product type (central
monitoring stations, portable bedside monitors, wireless/telemetry monitors), and target markets
(hospitals, long-term care facilities, and individual consumers) is also provided.
