MEA eHealth Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The size of the Middle East and Africa eHealth market is anticipated to grow from USD 1005 million in 2024 to USD 1849 Million by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 12.96% during the forecast period.

The eHealth is a significant amalgamation of information technology and the healthcare sector, where the data is easy to understand and convenient for use. One of the major factors driving the growth of the MEA eHealth market is the increasing demand for home monitoring devices, which provide constant monitoring and reliable access to data.

eHealth benefits people suffering from chronic ailments or who desire regular fitness checks. For instance, according to the International Diabetes Federation, 24 million adults were living with diabetes in Africa in 2021, and this number is expected to increase to 33 million by 2030. Hence, the increasing adoption of eHealth and growing cases of chronic disorders are expected to create demand for the digitalization of healthcare in the coming years. In the face of this, regional governments are taking great advantage of technology to give better access to people; this is expected to create awareness and help them track disease trends and treatment programs. In addition, the younger population of the Middle East under 45 years old has access to laptops, mobiles, and tablets, which is expected to drive the MEA eHealth market during the forecast period.

Regional health authorities are creating awareness about chronic diseases and educating people about treatment and prevention options. According to the WHO, an increase in people suffering from hypertension has led to 7.7 million deaths or about 13% of all deaths globally. The prevalence of hypertension in adults was around 42% worldwide. Hence, people's growing awareness regarding eHealth and the increased acceptance by healthcare professionals is expected to boost the MEA eHealth market. In addition, several growth opportunities in emerging countries such as Turkey, Bahrain, and South Africa due to AI- technological development and availability of the internet and mobile 5-G technology, growing health awareness, and increasing geriatric population are other essential factors driving the lucrative market growth opportunities.

However, the high costs of eHealth products and maintenance solutions, less available funds for research and development, lack of skilled professionals, and regulatory authorities negatively impact the MEA eHealth market's growth rate.
