Global Digital Health Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global digital health market is predicted to grow at a remarkable CAGR of 19.04% from 2024 to 2029. This market is expected to be USD 164.71 billion in 2024 and worth USD 393.73 billion by 2029.

People are adopting new technology like never before, which has led to many businesses becoming more popular and new businesses being invented. People can monitor their health at home without going outside and maintain it with various health monitoring and fitness apps. Digital Health is the convergence of digital technology and healthcare to enhance the efficiency of healthcare delivery. Digital Health interconnects the health system to improve computation technologies, smart devices, analysis techniques, and communication, which help healthcare professionals and patients. This technology includes software and hardware solutions and services such as Telemedicine, web-based analysis, mobile applications, and remote monitoring sensors.

MARKET DRIVERS

The rise in the usage of smartphones and the internet, rising standards of healthcare IT infrastructure across the world, and growing focus on fitness are majorly driving the global digital health market growth.

Technological advancements in the Healthcare industry are primarily hiking the growth rate of the global digital health market. The rising elderly population and awareness of the benefits of digital health systems are further propelling the growth of the digital health market tremendously. Patients with chronic diseases need healthcare services continuously, which can be provided by digital healthcare very quickly. Digital Health can help to compensate for the shortage of healthcare professionals worldwide. According to the WHO, the deficit of healthcare professionals could rise to 9.9 million by 2030.

The government and regulatory bodies worldwide are funding the development of digital health services, which is estimated to favor market growth.

The growing usage of virtual reality devices in pain management and the increasing adoption of artificial intelligence and machine learning in healthcare also contribute to the demand for digital health services and contribute to the global market growth. Big data in healthcare stores patient information and analyses the data, lowering medication errors next time. In addition, the data collected by the hospital can be used to research medical devices and predict disease in a patient with a previous medical history. These factors are projected to escalate the growth of the digital health market.

An increase in smartphones and smart devices has led to the introduction of apps that can help us monitor our body vitals, like blood pressure and heart rate and the number of calories burned during the day. Other types of apps allow us to do physical exercise and yoga correctly. The easy user interface is the prominent feature of these apps, contributing a lot to the market growth. The recent outbreak of COVID-19 further actively drives the growth of the global digital health market. Increased adoption of remote monitoring has recently been noticed in hospitals worldwide, as most chronic patients need continuous monitoring. They are most likely to get infected by the Coronavirus.

MARKET RESTRAINTS

The stringent regulatory environment for digital health technologies is hampering the digital health market growth.

Products and services of digital health must comply with regulations and policies, and these regulations and policies vary from country to country, which makes it difficult for the products and services to enter the market. Issues of data privacy and security of people are further hindering the digital health market growth. Digital health products and services require access to patients' health data, which has become a notable concern to people who adopt digital health products and services. Lack of interoperability and resistance to change to digital technologies by healthcare providers further impede the digital health market growth. Unfavorable reimbursement for digital health technologies in some countries, lack of digital infrastructure in some countries, and the high cost of some digital health products and services are inhibiting the growth rate of the digital health market. Poor awareness levels among healthcare providers and patients regarding the benefits of digital health solutions and the availability of various digital health apps are other major obstacles to the growth of the digital health market. The complexity associated with integrating digital health solutions into existing healthcare workflows and processes further showcases a negative impact on the digital health market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global digital health market

COVID-19 has boosted the digital health market around the world. The lockdown ensured that people remained at home during the pandemic; thus, people could not visit gyms, do physical exercise, or do yoga. On the other hand, the lockdown launched new apps or made the old apps famous and associated with the fitness market. Smartphones ensure that this growth rises reasonably, and people have started to exercise at home to avoid being exposed to viruses. Many gym chains also introduced apps to provide services to existing and new customers. The instructors have also started taking online classes privately now. Many apps also offer diet charts and apps that provide real-time data of COVID-19-positive cases near the person to take proper precautions.

SEGMENTAL ANALYSIS

Global Digital Health Market Analysis By Technology

Based on technology, the health analytics segment had the most significant market share in the global market in 2023. The rise in the infection rate is a substantial factor for the segment's growth in the forecast period. These health analytics also help analyze the patient's data to be used again if the patient needs it. In addition, the demand for health analytics is increasing due to COVID-19. Health analytics is also used to track the spread of the Coronavirus through various applications.

The digital health system had the second-largest market share of the global market in 2023. Growing demand for Telemedicine and the rise in in-home care settings are majorly fuelling the growth of this segment. In addition, there is a demand for paperless patient records, such as electronic health records (EHRs).

The tele-healthcare segment is estimated to progress at a promising CAGR during the forecast period. The digital health boom has helped us actively monitor our and other people's health to take timely action in an emergency. The vitals then allow the physicians to provide medication to the patients without being physically present with the doctor. In telehealth, there is LTC monitoring and video consultation. The patients are now consulting with their physicians on online video calls rather than being physically present to avoid the virus. As a result, it is expected to grow reasonably and currently has the second-largest market share among other segments.

The mHealth segment is subdivided into wearables and apps. The penetration of wearable devices in the market has boosted the digital health market worldwide. These wearable devices include glucometers, BP monitors, pulse oximeters, Sleep Apnea Monitors (PSG), neurological monitors, and activity trackers. Wearable devices have become popular due to increasing awareness about their health among people. Many companies have improved technology to make these devices smaller and have multiple functions. The big tech giants have also introduced their products, making the competition tougher and thus benefiting the customers.
