The market will be driven by increasing aging population, rising incidences of lifestyle diseases, home and remote monitors and increasing portability of equipments. However, the economic slowdown and unstable reimbursement policies will restrict the growth of this market to a certain extent.
North America is the biggest market, about 46%, for patient monitoring devices, followed by Europe with 27% share. However, the Asian countries represent the fastest growing markets due to large population and increased purchasing power of patients. Moreover, economic slowdown in western countries will compel the companies to focus on the Asian markets.
As end-users, hospitals occupy a share of 55% in the patient monitoring devices market, home monitoring accounts for 38.3% share. By 2016, hospitals will lose 2.8% share to home monitors owing to the fact that demand for home monitoring is increasing and strict government policies are being implemented to reduce patient stay in hospitals.
