eHealth has various definitions, but it can be broadly characterized as information technology and electronic communication in the healthcare industry to simplify, be accessible, and be affordable. eHealth reduces administrative costs connected with treatment and technical developments from clinical data transmission to EHR.

The growing incidence of chronic diseases such as diabetes and blood pressure among the European population due to changing lifestyles demands more easy-to-use healthcare services, which is one of the major factors promoting the eHealth market in this region. In recent times, Europe has seen a spike in the number of people suffering from diabetes and blood pressure. These people have to closely check their health to control and prevent any situations that may put them in significant health difficulty. In Europe, Germany has the highest number of diabetes cases, with nearly 17% of people who have diabetes in 2020. These people use wearable medical devices that track their health-related problems, such as regularly monitoring their sugar levels and blood pressure. Using eHealth, the healthcare data can be sent to the healthcare providers who stay far away online and get appropriate suggestions to control the situations.

The awareness around eHealth is significantly growing across the European region, and the adoption rate of eHealth is also increasing in Europe; these factors are expected to accelerate the market's growth rate during the forecast period. Furthermore, most people in rural areas and those who cannot go to hospitals due to transportation issues are now seeking online treatment for their healthcare needs. eHealth apps gather the information of the patient data in one place in a health-related portal or any other health website to give easy access to the information to give good treatment to the patients. In addition, the increased use of mobile technology and internet access drives the European eHealth market ahead. The growing aging population across the European region favors the European eHealth market. The aging population requires regular access to hospitals to check their health condition. For these people, eHealth is very useful for sending videos, images, or messages to the healthcare provider about their condition through the internet and taking the correct treatment without depending on some other person who takes them to the hospital.

The gradual shift drives the growth of the eHealth market in the European region to a digital healthcare system for patient health analysis and management. Thanks to information and communication technology (ICT) in healthcare, everyone can access proper healthcare facilities. However, for ICT to be fully utilized, infrastructure support in improved internet connections and electronic systems is required. eHealth solutions can provide cost-effective healthcare services, research, public health, and health-related activities, owing to the rise in chronic disease cases and technical advancements in this field. Practical use and improvement in ICT, an ever-increasing number of mobile and internet users, and miniaturization are further propelling the eHealth market in Europe. Information and communication technologies (ICT) have limitless potential, particularly in healthcare. eHealth solutions are in high demand around the region due to expanding demand for population health management and decreasing healthcare costs. In the coming years, technological advancements and subsequent advances that have given rise to several sub-sectors of this industry, such as mobile health, are expected to benefit the global eHealth market's growth.

However, factors limiting the eHealth market's growth in Europe include fraudulent activities, usability issues, and privacy and security concerns. The lack of knowledge of existing services among patients and customers is one of the most significant challenges facing the European eHealth market. In addition, data security is the central issue that restraints market growth. Most of the apps collect data and send it to the respected healthcare provider for patient treatment online. The theft of this data is a significant issue in adopting eHealth technology.
