Global PERS Market Size (2022 to 2027)

As per our analysis report, the size of the global personal emergency response systems (PERS) market was valued at USD 4.09 billion in 2022. The market size is predicted to reach USD 5.29 billion by the end of 2027, registering a CAGR of 5.3% from 2022 to 2027.

Personal emergency response systems (PERS) are medical devices where individuals call for medical help during an emergency. These devices are exceptionally innovative, which contact the emergency care services or the other family members. Other than patients' use during an emergency, these devices are also used for general-purpose to ensure safety and security when living or traveling alone.

Medical alert systems have a positive impact by providing the opportunity for action and promoting day or night access to the home care provider. Healthcare reforms are general rules that are used to address substantial development or improvements to health policy. For example, under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), a growing number of people with health insurance coverage will increase demand for services and goods from the healthcare industry, such as drop detectors and medical alert systems.


Increased awareness, self-care, and illness treatment also help people with chronic diseases and disabilities lead healthy and independent lives. The desire to live well with chronic conditions such as dementia and frailty drives the growth of this sector internationally by increasing the demand for social care services. However, these traditional systems are simplistic and are of little help in the actual prevention and management of life. In addition, as the market for personal emergency response systems evolved from the securities market, maturity problems and extreme sales practices that do not bode well for long-term growth have also served as barriers to this market.

Factors such as the rise in the use of various applications available in android and IOS systems are crucial driving factors for the PERS Market to grow. In addition, the growing geriatric population and the increasing prevalence of emergency care services are propelling the demand of the market.

Medical alert systems positively influence providing an opportunity by promoting day and night access to the home care provider. In addition, an increase in advanced technology offers better opportunities for the growth of the personal emergency response systems market.


However, concern towards data security, lack of sufficient knowledge over the utilization of systems in rural areas, and high costs subjected to the manufacturing of a personal emergency response system are majorly limiting the growth of the PERS market. In addition, the dearth of skilled technicians in monitoring the systems is a challenging factor for the market players.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global PERS Market:

The Covid 19 is a contagious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The WHO has declared COVID 19 as a Pandemic. The COVID 19 had impacted all the sectors in its own way. Even the global economy got hit negatively during the pandemic. Due to the strict implementation of lockdown, almost all industries got shut down and adversely impacted. In parallel to that, some industries were seen positive growth irrespective of the pandemic. The Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) market has been affected negatively during the pandemic. The lockdown led the factories to shut down, and the production of the devices was paused. Moreover, the supply chain system was disturbed due to the lack of transportation mobility which hindered the market. But in parallel to that, post lockdown had led the market to grow instantly. Due to COVID 19, the hospitals are at high risk for older people. All the non-covid patients are looking over the telemedicine with PERS to stay connected with emergency response centers anytime. These are the factors that led the Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) market post covid. The market players had tried their best to get the market into profits after the pandemic.
