The IoT in healthcare market is expected to witness substantial growth post-pandemic. As the COVID-19 pandemic progresses, the healthcare industry is expected to see a drop in growth in many areas. The life sciences segment thrives due to increased demand for invitro diagnostic products and rising research and development activities worldwide. Additionally, virtual consultations by healthcare professionals are expected to become the mainstream care delivery model post-pandemic. With telehealth transforming care delivery, digital health will continue to thrive in coming years. In addition, disrupted clinical trials and the subsequent delay in drug launches is also expected to pave the way for entirely virtual trials in the future. Factors such as use of robots and IoT devices like smart bracelet that is worn by patients to check patients' temperatures, monitor their heart rates and sugar levels will eventually drive the market growth in forecast period.

Increased Adoption of Smart Devices and Wearables to Drive IoT in Healthcare Market Growth

The smart devices include smart phones, tablets, and phablets; and wearables such as smart bands, smart shoes, smart clothes, smart watches, sleep headphones and others help in collecting, transferring and analyzing information of data between device and a remote sensor. With the increase in adoption of smart devices and wearables, the demand for healthcare applications has also increased thus, driving the demand for IoT in healthcare market. Many wearable devices are getting immense attention due to their capabilities including devices benefitting patients from chronic illness. Also, some devices have push buttons which can immediately send alerts for emergency medical help. Furthermore, fitness bands are one more addition to the devices in healthcare and IoT. These connected devices record the essential data of the wearer throughout the day and transfer this data wirelessly to users’ devices such as tablets, smartphones, and computers. These devices are considered as a great tool in reducing medical expenses and thus, are increasingly adopted by the people. Moreover, the smartphones with mobile applications for storing health information with inbuilt sensors are another great attraction driving the market for IoT in healthcare. These apps can be connected to the wearable devices of the patients’ to record the data. The applications such as blood pressure monitoring, heart rate etc. using these devices are helping people using smart devices to reduce their medical expenses.

Based on application, the IoT in healthcare market is segmented into medication management, patient monitoring, fitness & wellness measurement, clinical workflow management and others. The patient monitoring segment held the largest market share in 2015, also the same segment is estimated to dominate the market during the forecast period. Rising awareness among people for the measurement and monitoring of their self-health offer lucrative opportunities for the growth of patient monitoring segment.
