The wearable medical devices market in the Asia-Pacific region has gained momentum in the recent past and is expected to register 25.52% CAGR during the forecast period. The market is estimated to grow USD 4140.40 million in 2026 from USD 1328.86 million in 2021.
Wearable medical devices are electronic devices like a smartwatch and Fitbit. These devices are designed for individual health, fitness, lifestyle, blood pressure, etc. The market continues to gain momentum with the rapid increase in the adoption of these devices among patients and the launch of technologically advanced, user-friendly devices. Wearable medical devices feature wireless data transmission, real-time feedback, alerting mechanisms, and have smooth and timely sensing abilities. The data generated by wearable medical devices is further analyzed and is used by customers for better health management.
Wearable medical devices monitor several bodily conditions like glucose levels, insulin levels, heart conditions, blood pressure, ingestion, pain relief, brain activity, hydration, temperature, sleep, etc. Lately, Google is working on a wrist-worn medical device with sensors to produce an ECG, assessing the patterns and strength of the person’s heartbeat. Moreover, it checks the skin and pulse temperature.
According to the World Health Organization, the number of annual cardiovascular events account for 41% of total deaths in China. In contrast, the number of diabetics in India, now around 65+ million, will reach a staggering 101 million by 2030. Erstwhile, Japan expects that approximately 40% of its population will be at least 65 years old by 2060, creating additional demand for healthcare facilities. The enormous number of ongoing developments and innovations in the healthcare and electronics sector, rise in healthcare spending by both governments and individuals, the ease of use of medical devices combining with the increase as mentioned above in incidences of chronic diseases, has led to the increased adoption of the wearable devices. The market is facing challenges, mainly in allocating cost-effective monitoring to patients suffering from chronic diseases such as cancer and other blood diseases.
Lack of awareness is also another cause leading to slower adoption of technology. These factors act as growth hurdles for wearable technology.
