These digital health platforms have been offering numerous services including remote patient monitoring, telehealth consultations, personalized health coaching, and access to digital therapeutics programs. The convenience, portability, and connectivity offered by smartphones, wearables, and digital health platforms have been helping people to focus on preventative healthcare and self-management and contributing to the increasing demand for digital health solutions including digital therapeutics.

The growing healthcare costs, increasing need for cost-effective treatment options, favorable government initiatives and policies promoting digital therapeutics, technological advancements including artificial intelligence and machine learning that enable personalized treatment and monitoring and expansion of digital health infrastructure and connectivity promote the digital therapeutics market growth. The growing demand for non-invasive and convenient treatment options, increasing patient awareness and acceptance of digital therapeutics, integration of digital therapeutics into healthcare systems and reimbursement policies and the growing number of collaborations and partnerships between pharmaceutical companies and digital health providers accelerate the market growth.

The growing focus on preventive healthcare and wellness, rising interest from investors and venture capital firms in digital therapeutics, increasing need for remote patient monitoring and management, especially in rural and underserved areas, improving patient engagement and adherence to treatment regimens and the expansion of telehealth and telemedicine services propel the market growth. The growing use of digital therapeutics in mental health and behavioral health conditions, expansion of regulatory frameworks and approvals for digital therapeutics and shift towards value-based care and outcome-driven healthcare models support the market growth.

Global Digital Therapeutics Market Restraints:

Limited awareness and understanding of digital therapeutics among healthcare providers and patients, regulatory challenges and the need for clear guidelines and frameworks for digital therapeutics hamper the market growth. Reimbursement complexities and the lack of standardized reimbursement policies for digital therapeutics interventions, data privacy and security concerns, particularly regarding the collection and storage of personal health information and resistance to change and traditional healthcare systems that may be resistant to adopting digital therapeutics further hinder the market growth. Limited interoperability and integration of digital therapeutics platforms with existing healthcare systems and electronic health records, technical challenges, such as connectivity issues, compatibility with different devices, and user interface limitations, limit the growth rate of the digital therapeutics market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global digital therapeutics market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has fuelled the demand levels for digital therapeutics. The usage and adoption of digital health solutions including digital therapeutics have seen a spike during the COVID-19 pandemic. The measures taken by the governments of several countries such as lockdowns, travel bans and social distancing have resulted in an increasing demand for remote healthcare services. People found digital therapeutics as a promising healthcare option during the COVID-19 pandemic to avail virtual care, remote monitoring, and self-management of chronic diseases and the demand for digital therapeutics has increased and driven the market growth. In addition, telehealth usage has increased significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic and this has created a favorable environment for digital therapeutics. Furthermore, the number of people suffering from mental health issues has increased notably during the COVID-19 pandemic and a considerable amount of the patient population suffering from mental health issues have used digital therapeutics to avail mental health solutions, including virtual therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness apps, and stress management programs. Likewise, the digital therapeutics market has experienced a favorable boost from the COVID-19 pandemic.
