Global Telehealth Market Size (2024 to 2029)

As per our analysis report, the global telehealth market size is forecasted to reach USD 26.50 Billion by 2029, witnessing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.1% from 2024 to 2029.

American Hospital Association (AHA) study report found that approximately 67% of U.S. hospitals were connected remotely to doctors and patients via video and other communication technologies in 2016. The sudden global coronavirus outbreak is remote because these solutions help caregivers effectively communicate with patients and find better answers to their health concerns during pandemics, boosting medical use. Due to the social distances practiced in different countries worldwide, virtual care provision is an effective solution for safe and excellent communication. World Health Organization (WHO) mentioned telehealth as a critical service in the COVID-19 emergency policy response.


Growing usage of the internet across the world, rising incidences of various chronic diseases, and the senior population, leading to a rise in the number of deaths worldwide, are primarily driving the global telehealth market growth.

Additionally, a shortage of healthcare professionals worldwide, telehealth benefits, and telecommunication infrastructure advancements further accelerate the global telehealth market. The increasing adoption rate of connected devices for managing chronic diseases and the growing requirement for affordable treatment options due to rising healthcare costs is projected to accelerate the global telehealth market growth. R&D organizations and academic institutions are focusing on developing innovative products with advanced technology to enhance the efficiency of healthcare services, the growing rate of chronic diseases among people, and a rising number of HCIT programs to drive the global telehealth market growth.

Furthermore, ongoing research on developing new technologies favors ordinary people. Increasing medical tourism in emerging countries such as India, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, and China further stimulates the telehealth market's growth.


Poor internet access in rural areas, lack of consumer knowledge, especially in undeveloped countries, and increased cost of installing telehealth solutions are significant restraints that significantly impact the telehealth market growth. Payment constraints, misdiagnosis, less implementation, intense competition among vendors, and successful business strategy and human resources are the main challenges in the global telehealth market. In addition, reimbursement and coverage for telemedicine services comparable to in-person services are a big challenge for the telehealth market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global telehealth market

In the pandemic situation caused by Coronavirus, telehealth plays a vital role in reducing the virus's spread. Many health providers support telehealth to reduce direct contact between patients and doctors during these challenging times. In March 2020, the cases rose across the globe, and the front-liners, like doctors and physicians, faced many challenges like lack of personal protection kits and others. While researchers are in the process of developing a new vaccine, the authorities are promoting telehealth services. 

In the U.S., Health and Human Services have approved new guidelines for healthcare services to use telehealth. Many companies are adopting different software applications to provide quality treatment services. Of course, the charge through telehealth is also the same as in-patient medical services. For patients suffering from chronic diseases, artificial intelligence systems are helping in assisting patients. Telehealth is familiar in some parts of the world, but it is everyday practice before the coronavirus outbreak. During quarantine times, telehealth is also helpful in treating mental health-related issues such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Telehealth is experiencing a strong positive response in these situations and benefits the patients through virtual assistance.

According to Forrester, telehealth is a boom in this pandemic situation, and its demand has steadily increased for several years. In the U.S., approximately 24% of the hospitals have already adopted virtual care programs from January 2020. It is explosive growth in the telehealth market, where people show interest in video consultancy rather than going to hospitals. However, remote care demand may become routine once the pandemic is controlled. As per the IDC report, 83.9% of patients were new to the telehealth platform, and health providers offered excellent care online.
