The global IoT healthcare market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 20.1% from 2024 to 2029. This market is forecasted to grow by USD 301.68 billion by 2029 and USD 121.96 billion in 2024.


The favorable government policies for digital health are promoting the growth of the global IoT healthcare market.

Various governments worldwide have been taking numerous initiatives to boost the adoption of digital health among their citizens and investing considerable amounts to develop infrastructure and equipment for the same. For instance, the Singapore Government partnered with Apple Inc. in the latest Apple watch series six deal. Through this deal, Singapore citizens will be rewarded in cash if they participate in this program, which is one such instance. In the coming years, it is estimated that several key players worldwide will develop initiatives to promote digital health, bolstering the growth of the global IoT healthcare market.

The rapid adoption of digital technology in healthcare and increasing penetration of IoT in all industries including healthcare are further driving the global IoT healthcare market growth. The adoption of telemedicine and telehealth had grown exponentially worldwide during the COVID-19 pandemic and the usage of trend is continuing since then. The enhanced adoption of remote patient monitoring services in hospitals and healthcare organizations is anticipated to provide numerous growth possibilities to the stakeholders in the global market. The growing product launches and increasing government initiatives that support the expansion of the digital healthcare system worldwide are raising the adoption of IoT in healthcare. The rising chronic disease conditions, accelerating technological advancements, affordability, and reduced costs are raising the adoption of digital healthcare among people, leading to the expansion of the IoT healthcare market.

The rising demand for wearable equipment integrated with the geriatric population's increasing prevalence and healthcare needs and increasing telemedicine knowledge and acceptance are significant factors accelerating the global IoT Healthcare market growth. Growing health concerns and increased investments in the healthcare sector have been significant factors contributing to the growth of the IoT Healthcare market globally. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to increased sales of PPE kits and masks worldwide, which resulted in increased revenue in the global IoT healthcare market in the last few months. Moreover, IoT Healthcare is being used extensively in hospitals and medical centers.


As the dependency on connected medical devices such as blood glucose monitorspulse oximeters, asthma inhalers, and other wearables rises, so does the risk of cyber-attacks and the unlawful acquisition by these medical IoT devices of patient information being transmitted. In addition, high costs associated with IoT infrastructure creation, data privacy, security concerns, and limited technical knowledge impede the IoT healthcare market. Also, factors such as the lack of awareness regarding IoT healthcare in emerging countries and the shortage of trained research professionals are expected to hamper market development. These are the restricting factors for the IoT healthcare market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global IoT healthcare market

The COVID-19 pandemic placed excessive pressure on the emergency rooms and health systems that were already understaffed and overworked. IoT healthcare can keep patients healthy at home while decreasing the burden on hospitals, emergency departments, and front-line healthcare workers. Increased use of IoT healthcare has speeded up the usage of digital biomarkers, in particular, to classify people at risk of COVID-19. Besides, many IoT technologies are increasingly helping authorities prevent COVID-19 from spreading further while also treating those infected. IoT is explicitly combined with other advanced technologies such as Cloud and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Remote patient monitoring is at Covid-19 seems to be an attractive, effective, and inexpensive alternative. However, this technology is of crucial importance in keeping healthcare providers safe. Although the COVID-19 pandemic offers enormous potential for the Internet of Things strategies, the only existing strategy established so far that can minimize exposure is the task of social distancing. Also, in India, the Ministry of Health of the Union, on 2 April 2020, launched the Aarogya Setu smartphone app, which helps people determine whether they are at risk of infection with COVID-19. Therefore, during the forecast period, COVID-19 has increased the internet demand for things in the healthcare industry and created opportunities for manufacturers in various healthcare applications. However, market growth is expected to be impeded by high costs associated with IoT infrastructure creation, data privacy and security concerns, lack of public awareness in developing regions, and limited technological knowledge. The global IoT healthcare market growth is expected to be boosted by numerous factors, such as government initiatives to support the IoT platform, improved healthcare infrastructure in developing countries, and high R&D investments.
