Consumer wearable devices capable of recording heart rate trends, beat-to-beat intervals, and single-lead electrocardiograms are rapidly being employed by patients with known or suspected arrhythmias. Two types of population using such devices are individuals at high risk or those who use them for early detection and prevention purposes and patients already diagnosed or suspected to have an arrhythmia. A common scenario is to employ these devices for patients with known or suspected arrhythmias, either to make an initial diagnosis or to assist in managing the arrhythmia after it has been detected. Individual patient interest in employing these tools varies dramatically, often based upon their comfort with digital technology. Once patients use this technology, they often find themselves forced to figure out how to share the data with their clinical provider. Providers must make accommodations for these patients, such as providing e-mail access, since EHR portals typically do not accommodate attachment of digital health data. The patient perspective of these tools will need to be assessed as these technologies mature.
On the basis of application, home healthcare dominated the market of wearable cardiac devices market in 2019. The healthcare requirement for the growing older American population continue to be a challenge for the healthcare providers. United States is expected to experience a rapid rise in its old aged population in the coming future. By 2050, the total number of American in the age bracket of 65 and above is expected to reach 88.5 million which is mostly due to baby boomers, as they would begin to enter into old age category. The rapid growth of the old aged population over 65 age and most importantly the 75-84 year old cohort is expected to fuel the growth of the wearable cardiac devices market.
Home healthcare represents a cost-effective alternative to facility-based care. The wearable cardiac devices are expected to better match patient acuity with service needs, likely resulting in increased downstream patient flow from hospitals. Home healthcare also benefits from shorter hospital and post-acute care facility stays driven by the growth of wearable cardiac devices.
North America dominated the market for wearable cardiac devices in 2019. The growing elderly population, especially the ones above 65 years of age are creating opportunities for companies selling wearable cardiac devices. Other factors powering the growth of this industry include up surging demand in developing markets due to better infrastructure, advanced new treatments, improved affordability owing to climbing per-capita GDP and a mounting dominance of lifestyle diseases such as obesity owed to urbanization. The wearable cardiac devices represents a substantial opportunity, in Asian region. There has been a wave of industry innovation continuing as various operating procedures have shifted to robotic platforms or less-invasive techniques. Meanwhile, diffusion in evolving markets still offers benefits, as local government policies are supporting higher healthcare spending. Wearable cardiac devices companies can benefit from rising affordability in these markets.
