Product Insights

Monitoring devices led the global portable medical devices market with a significant revenue share of around 50% in 2019. This is attributed to the increasing adoption of portable devices at healthcare centers. New product approval, technological advancement, and advantages such as mobility and compact design are some of the key factors that drive the market growth. For example, in 2016, the U.S. FDA passed an approval for Dexcom G5 mobile Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) system for patients with type 2 and type 1 diabetes for real-time glucose monitoring in every five minutes.

Diagnostics segment encountered second-largest market value share in 2019 due to rising adoption of CT scan, x-ray, endoscopes, and handheld ultrasound systems among other diagnostic devices. Furthermore, significant developments in advanced imaging platforms that are smaller in size along with subsequent product approval are some of the factors that boost the market growth. For instance, in July 2018, U.S. FDA approved Sonon 300L of Healcerion, a handheld and application-based mobile ultrasound system that was designed for effective and efficient diagnosis in primary health centers.

However, smart wearable devices registered the highest growth rate of nearly 19% over the forecast period. This is attributed to the rising demand for wristband and other fitness monitoring devices for continuously monitoring long-term health of the consumer. Rising awareness for continuous health monitoring and increasing concern for health problems trigger the growth of smart wearable devices.

Application Insights

Based on application, gynecology expected to witness lucrative growth rate in the coming years. Increasing adoption of imaging technologies and other portable monitoring systems in the gynecology application propel its growth. For instance, Signostics developed Signos RT, a handheld ultrasound system that is used for real-time monitoring of the fetus. Other than this, significant growth in the new child birth rate per year is exponentially increasing that again triggers the need for advanced and portable monitoring systems in gynecology application. Adoption of advanced portable devices has also reduced the chances of birth defects that contributes as a key factor that fuel the demand for portable gynecology devices in the coming years.

Regional Insights

In terms of revenue, North America dominated the global portable medical devices market accounting for nearly 41% of market value share in 2019. High rate of treatment, supportive government initiatives for before time diagnosis of diseases, and high adoption of technologically advanced devices are some of the major factors that drive the market growth.
