Wellesley, Mass., October 9, 2014 –BCC Research (www.bccresearch.com) reveals in its new report, GLOBAL MARKETS FOR TELEMEDICINE TECHNOLOGIES, the global telehospital/clinic and telehome market is expected to grow to $43.4 billion by 2019, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.7%. The telehome category, the dominant market segment, is surging at a tremendous 24% CAGR.
There has been a global focus on the use of telemedicine as a tool to cut healthcare costs and bring about significant savings. Implementation of the new U.S. healthcare law has intensified this focus by increasing the number of people with health insurance and seeking medical services.
The telehospital/clinic market category, which comprises services that are provided within or between hospitals, clinics or other healthcare providers, is expected to reach $19.5 billion in 2019 and register a CAGR of 12%.
However, the telehome category, the largest and fastest growing segment of the market, is forecast to jump from just $6.5 billion in 2013 to nearly $24 billion in 2019. Consequently, this segment, which provides teleservices to the outpatient, is expected to increase its share of the market from 40% in 2013 to 55% by 2019.
“In the near to midterm, telemedicine technologies offer one of the few ways of enabling healthcare personnel to meet the increased demand for healthcare services without unacceptable delays or service rationing,” said BCC Research healthcare analyst Andrew McWilliams. “The growing adoption of telemedicine services is expected to significantly impact larger markets such as healthcare, health insurance, home care, telecommunications (telecom), networking, disease management, e-health, and healthcare IT.”
