Europe Telemedicine Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The telemedicine market size in Europe was worth USD 18.23 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach USD 51.94 billion by 2029 from USD 21.71 billion in 2024, growing at a CAGR of 19.06% from 2024 to 2029.

Telemedicine technologies are highly beneficial for patients who are suffering from long-term chronic diseases. Frequent follow-ups are required for patients who are suffering from long-term diseases. Telemedicine provides high-quality treatment options remotely. Patients need not visit hospitals every time where they can avail of screening, diagnosis, and treatment digitally. 

The growing support for telemedicine from European government authorities and increasing investments in advanced technologies are likely to escalate the demand for telemedicine services in Europe and drive regional market growth. The demand for telemedicine services has increased significantly during the timeline of the COVID-19 pandemic. Healthcare providers adopted the latest digital technologies to provide various treatment procedures that reduced the mortality rate. The World Health Organization (WHO) in Europe is focusing on launching various initiatives to develop telemedicine through various policies, and such initiatives by public and private organizations are fuelling the adoption of telemedicine in Europe and promoting the growth rate of the European telemedicine market. For instance, ministers of health at the WHO Regional Committee launched a regional digital health action plan for 2023-2030 that emphasizes digital health solutions, including telemedicine. 

The growing penetration of advanced technologies in healthcare across Europe is favoring the regional market and offering growth opportunities for market participants. Telemedicine offers high-quality treatment procedures for geriatric people. People who are aged can avail of senior doctor consultations by connecting through the internet. These techniques minimize the frequent visits to the hospitals and thus lower the medical expenses.

An increasing number of cross-border healthcare initiatives, increasing demand from patients for telemedicine services due to convenience, reimbursement policies associated with telemedicine, the shortage of healthcare professionals and the integration of telemedicine with electronic health records (EHR) in Europe are fuelling the European telemedicine market growth. The growing mobile health (mHealth) adoption in Europe, rising emphasis on preventive healthcare, an increasing number of collaborations between tech and healthcare sectors, an increasing number of patient engagement initiatives and a growing number of telemedicine awareness campaigns in Europe are contributing to the growth of the Europe telemedicine market.

However, a lack of proper knowledge of the use of digital technologies in rural areas and poor internet connections in remote areas are hindering the growth rate of the telemedicine market in Europe. The lack of reimbursement policies by government authorities in developed countries and stringent rules and regulations by the government in providing licenses for healthcare providers to use telemedicine applications are impeding the market's growth rate. Along with this, increasing competition between the key players is also one of the factors that is challenging the growth of the European telemedicine market.
