The global e-Health market is estimated at USD 124 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 244 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 14.56% during the forecast period.

Despite, decades of effort by various international organizations and national governments, the programming goal of WHO - “Health for all” is far from being achieved. People from remote locations and those belonging to the marginalized communities suffer the most and have not been able to avail basic healthcare services, till date. But with the use of Information & Communication Technology (ICT) in healthcare, this situation can be overcome. For ICT to be implemented, an infrastructural support comprising of better internet connection and electronic system (such as the computer, mobile, etc.) are required. Growth in the number of internet users, and mobile and computer users, globally, have been driving the adoption of ICT in all sectors, including healthcare.

The ability of e-Health solutions to provide cost-effective healthcare delivery, public health, research and health-related activities that can benefit, both low and high-income countries, has led to WHO promoting e-Health services. Urging member states to consider drawing up a long-term strategic plan for developing and implementing e-Health services in various areas of the health sector, is one of the other factors that will contribute to growth in the sector.


Growth in Internet of Things (IOT) and advancement of technology, along with growing demand for population health management and the need to cut healthcare cost, including clinical, financial and administrative, has led to soaring demand for e-Health solutions, globally. Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) are powerful instruments/assets, especially in the healthcare system. Adoption and advancement in ICT, growing number of mobile and internet users, miniaturization and declining costs of sensors and other devices are other key drivers of this market.


Fraudulent activities, privacy and security concerns, usability problems, among others, are considered to be factors that will hinder the growth of the e-Health market. Interoperability also poses a significant challenge to the growth of this industry and if not solved, as early as possible, the aim of implementing E-health would be defeated.
