For instance, Mobile healthcare (mHealth) technology is the use of mobile devices, such as mobile phones and patient monitoring devices, in medicine. With around seven billion mobile phones in the world; 70% of those in low- or middle- income countries, healthcare organizations can treat patients in parts of the world they previously couldn’t access.

Global Connected Medical Device Market Opportunities:

Outbreak of COVID-19 (pandemic) across the globe is expected to provide significant growth opportunities for players in the connected medical device market. For instance, the pandemic has created an unprecedented demand on the health care system and has led to an urgent need for access to health (medical) products. In May 2021, Dozee (India) developed Remote Patient Monitoring System that checks COVID-19 related vital signs. This device monitors heart rate, respiration rate, oxygen saturation, & blood pressure, among other things, and sends continuous data streams to Dozee’s mobile application.

Increasing demand or adoption of wearable medical devices around the world is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the global connected medical device market. For instance, in April 2021, Digital healthcare company Ava planned to test whether its fertility tracking algorithm technology is also effective at detecting COVID-19 infections in real-time. Moreover, Ava is the only wearable currently leveraged in the fight against COVID-19. This offers a unique opportunity during this pandemic.
