The wireless health market is expected to grow at a rate of 20.2% during the study period 2013-2018. This growth is attributed to increasing applications in patient monitoring and diagnostics (to reduce costs in order to combat the increasing healthcare expenditure and ageing population), and government funding.

Wireless network technologies represent the largest segment of this market and will continue to be the largest contributor in the coming five years. However, the handheld devices and mobile apps segment is growing fast and will continue to grow at the same pace in the coming years due to its wide applications and increased adoption by various healthcare professionals, pharmaceutical companies and research laboratories.

Wireless health has the potential to take healthcare delivery to the next level by eliminating the need for physical interaction between doctors and patients. The increasing willingness of medical communities and patients to connect to real-time network communication systems owing to an immense demand for optimized care is expected to be a major growth factor. However, the industry needs to deal with issues such as uncertainty about security, privacy, READ MORE >

The global wireless health market is witnessing positive growth dynamics with advancements in wireless information and communication technology, coupled with the availability of inexpensive wireless-based devices. The World Health Organization has calculated significant cost reduction and maternal and perinatal mortality through mhealth adoption. Wireless technologies in healthcare enable wireless transmission of medical information such as health records and real-time patient data through radio/infrared signals/networks, thereby facilitating clinicians to monitor patients remotely in real time, provide timely health information and reminders, and offer support.

The global market is valued at $23.8 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach $59.7 billion by 2018, at an estimated CAGR of 20.2% from 2013 to 2018. The major drivers impacting the growth of this market are increasing awareness, aging population, need to combat increasing healthcare expenditure, chronic disease management, and technological advances in the field. The increasing adoption of wireless health delivery by medical communities and patients to connect to real-time network communication systems for optimized care is expected to be a major growth factor. However, privacy and security issues, lack of standard communication protocols, and infrastructural and cost issues are stumbling blocks to growth of the market.

In this report, this market is categorized into four segments, namely, wireless network technologies, wireless sensor networks, handheld devices, and mobile apps. Each segment is further sub-segmented on the basis of technology and type. Wireless network technologies consist of WLAN (Wi-Fi), WiMAX (WMAN), WPAN (Bluetooth, ZigBee, Z-Wave, UWB, and RFID), and WWAN (CDMA, GPS, 3G, and GPRS). Wireless sensor networks are wearable and implantable. Handheld devices include smartphones, tablet PC, mobile phones, pagers, and PDAS. An exhaustive value analysis for all these markets is provided for 2011, 2012, and 2013, with forecast till 2018.

The overall market is highly fragmented with the presence of various players such as Qualcomm, Inc. (U.S.), Aerohive Networks, Inc. (U.S.), Vocera Communications, Inc. (U.S.), Siemens Healthcare (Germany), GE Healthcare (U.K.), Verizon Communications, Inc. (U.S.), and Cisco Systems, Inc. (U.S.), among others.
