Global PERS Market Size (2024 to 2029)

As per our analysis report, the size of the global personal emergency response systems (PERS) market was valued at USD 4.52 billion in 2024. The market size is predicted to reach USD 5.86 billion by the end of 2029, registering a CAGR of 5.3% from 2024 to 2029.

Current Scenario of the Global PERS Market

Personal emergency response systems (PERS) are medical devices where individuals call for medical help during an emergency. These devices are exceptionally innovative and contact the emergency care services or the other family members. Other than patient use during an emergency, these devices are also used for general purposes 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 used to address substantial development or improvements to health policy. For instance, 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.


The growing awareness of self-care and increasing adoption of peninsula emergency response systems among chronic disease patients, as these devices help lead healthy and independent lives, are boosting the global PERS market growth.

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 do not help prevent and manage 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.

The growing geriatric population and the increasing prevalence of emergency care services propel the growth rate of the global PERS market.

As per the statistics provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 1.4 billion people will be over 60 years of age by 2030, which is also one person in every six people. The usage of PERS devices is more common among people aged as these provide security for the aged. The growing number of technologically well-advanced PERS devices entering the market is anticipated to boost the market's growth rate. In addition, the growing incidence of falls and accidents among aged and disabled people is expected to increase the need for PERS devices and promote market growth. Furthermore, factors such as increasing awareness among people regarding the personal emergency response systems, growing support and initiatives in favor of PERS from various governments, and rising disposable income are anticipated to showcase a favorable impact on the PERS market growth.

In addition, factors such as the rise in the use of various applications available in Android and IOS systems are propelling the growth of the personal emergency response systems 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 personal emergency response systems market growth.


Concern about 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 death of skilled technicians monitoring the systems is challenging for the market players. Furthermore, the technical glitches, poor user experience, and availability of alternative devices are anticipated to showcase a negative impact on the growth of the PERS market worldwide. Furthermore, the presence of a stringent regulatory environment in some countries is predicted to impede market growth. The manufacturers of these devices must follow certain certifications and approvals for the marketing and commercializing these devices, which is eventually becoming time-consuming and costly for the manufacturers. Such factors are expected to inhibit the growth of the PERS market.

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 a Pandemic. COVID-19 has impacted all sectors in its way. Even the global economy was hit negatively during the pandemic. Due to the strict implementation of the lockdown, almost all industries were shut down and adversely impacted. In parallel, some industries saw favorable growth, irrespective of the pandemic. The Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) market was negatively affected 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, hospitals are at high risk for older people. All the non-covid patients are looking over telemedicine with PERS to stay connected with emergency response centers anytime. These factors led to the Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) market post covid. However, considering the declining impact of COVID-19 and increasing habituation towards the new normalization, the market for PERS is expected to recover in no time and post a healthy CAGR in the coming years.
