Sensors for home care will explode over the next five years

From 2000 - 2050, the proportion of the world's population aged 60 and over will grow from about 16% to 25% - an increase linked to a marked growth of chronic diseases (Alzheimer's, diabetes, cancers, etc.). Healthcare systems’ rising costs and a physicians’ shortage are paving the way for increased home care.

Sensors previously developed for non-medical applications are transitioning to home care applications, and the market for sensors dedicated to home care applications is poised to grow from $559M in 2013 to $1.2B by 2018.

During Yole's research, the following sensors were investigated: accelerometers, barometers, electrochemical biosensors, flow sensors, gyroscopes, humidity sensors, IR temperature sensors, magnetometers, microfluidic chips, microphones, photodetectors, pressure sensors, proximity IR sensors, RF MEMS, RFID, and strain sensors. For each sensors, Yole’s Home Care Report provides market data and unit/value forecasts.

Collectively, these sensors have numerous applications in the home care market, from fall detection systems to tremor monitoring in Parkinson’s READ MORE >
