Impact Analysis of Covid-19
The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.
Medical device connectivity (MDC) is the establishment and maintenance of a connection through which data is transferred between a medical device, such as a patient monitor, and an information system. It is also termed as biomedical device integration or biomedical device connectivity.
The global medical device connectivity market is estimated to account for US$ 39,380.4 Mn in terms of value in 2020 and is expected to reach US$ 122,271.5 Mn by the end of 2027.
Global Medical Device Connectivity Market: Drivers
Implementation of standard regulations for the use of MDC in the healthcare sector is expected to propel growth of the global medical device connectivity market over the forecast period. For instance, in March 2020, The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services finalized the two sets of rules that fulfill the interoperability and information-blocking provisions of the landmark 21st Century Cures Act. The rules will govern how providers, payers and technology vendors must design their systems to give patients safe and secure access to their digital health data.
Moreover, collaborations to develop digital therapeutic solutions using connected devices is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, in June 2020, SMi Group announces that AstraZeneca will lead a pre-conference workshop at Wearable Injectors and Connected Devices Conference 2020 on 6th October in London.
Wired hardware held dominant position in the global medical device connectivity market in 2019, accounting for 42.5% share in terms of value, followed by software and Wireless hardware, respectively

Global Medical Device Connectivity Market: Restraints
MDC is prone to cyber threat, which is expected to hinder growth of the market. Medical devices often operate with off-the-shelf software, which increases the risk of cyber threat.
Moreover, there are several instances where devices have limited memory and operate on old versions of operating system (OS), which further increases security risk, thereby limiting the market growth.
