WELLESLEY, Mass., March 08, 2019— A new report from BCC Research, “Wearable Medical Devices: Technologies and Global Markets,” estimates that by 2023, the market will reach $29.9 billion, up from $8.9 billion in 2018, indicating a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 27.5%.
The emergence of wearable technology has disrupted the healthcare industry in recent years, leading to increasing adoption and market growth for wearable medical devices. These devices have expanded from their typical consumer uses like fitness and activity tracking, to the area of medical applications like diagnosis, monitoring and, to a certain extent, the treatment of chronic diseases.
“The wearable medical device industry is now in a stage of innovation to develop medical-grade devices that can easily be worn and integrated into everyday life by leveraging new advancements in technology. These [high] growth rates are likely to continue or even accelerate in the years beyond 2023,” said BCC Research analysts.
Personalization is Key for Sustainable Success
Personal calibration of wearable devices is currently not feasible according to individual factors like genetics, diet and disease symptoms, but personal calibration of devices and machine learning-based analysis of data tailored for individual data is required for more accurate and relevant monitoring of the health status. Wearable technology should be updated to be aware of “small data” created by individuals and accurately interpret minor deviations from large scale control data.
