The global medical electronics market was estimated at US$ 81.6 billion in 2020 and is expected to hit US$ 248.43 billion by 2030, poised to grow at a CAGR of 11.8% from 2021 to 2030.
The global medical electronics market is primarily driven by the rising prevalence of various chronic diseases and growing geriatric population across the globe. The chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and COPD are the major factors responsible for the increasing adoption of the medical electronics. According to the United Nations, the global geriatric population was estimated at around 382 million (aged 60 years and above) in 2017 and this number is projected to reach at 2.1 billion by 2050. The geriatric people are more prone to the various chronic diseases and hence boosts the demand for various diagnostics and therapeutics medical electronic devices such as CT scanner, ultrasound, patient monitoring systems, medical implantable devices, pacemakers, and respiratory care devices. Furthermore, the rising number of ICU admissions is fueling the growth of the global medical electronics market. According to the Society of Critical Care Medicine, almost 40 to 50% of the ICU admissions require ventilators, which fosters the growth of the medical electronics. The availability of wider range of diagnostic and therapeutic devices coupled with the rising government and corporate investments to equip the hospitals with digital and electronic equipment across the globe is a significant growth driver of the market.
The surging uses of the diagnostic devices such as ultrasound equipment, CT scanners, and X-Rays in the diagnosis of various diseases and bones related issues has significantly driven the market growth in the past. Moreover, the rising investments in the research has led to the integration of the latest technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) with the various medical electronics. The technological advancements helps the healthcare units to offer enhanced patient care services and increases the patients conveniences and results in improved customer experiences in any healthcare setting. The rising demand for the early detection and treatment of the disease among the population and rising popularity of the minimal-invasive surgeries is propelling the demand for the various medical electronics across the globe that fosters the growth of the medical electronics market.
Medical Electronics Market Share, By Application, 2020 (%)
|Application Segment||2020 (%)|
Based on the product, the therapeutics segment dominated the global medical electronics market in 2020, in terms of revenue and is estimated to sustain its dominance during the forecast period.
