Global Ingestible Sensors Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Sensor Type (Temperature Sensor, Pressure Sensor, pH Sensor, and Image Sensor) and by Application (Medical, Sports & Fitness, and Others) Forecast Period 2022-2028
The global ingestible sensors market is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR of 12.8% during the forecast period. Ingestible sensors are used for capsule endoscopy, patient monitoring, and controlled drug delivery application in the medical sector. Ingestible sensors can help in tracking the pH and temperature of a patient's gastrointestinal tract and also provide images of the targeted organs. These are also known as intelligent pills. The rising cases of chronic diseases and medical adherence are driving the growth of the global ingestible sensors market. For instance, according to the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, one out of every five people suffers from a gastrointestinal disorder in their lifetime and 30% of them remain undiagnosed.
The accuracy requirement in invasive diagnosis tests is creating huge opportunities for innovation in ingestible sensors. The increasing cases of gastroparesis in the developed nations including the US and UK are giving strength in the market growth. However, the high requirement of R&D investment for the designing of miniaturized microelectronics is restraining the growth of the market. Additionally, stringent government regulations are another hurdle in the development of the market.
Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Global Ingestible Sensors Market
The outbreak of COVID-19 had greatly impacted the global ingestible sensors market. According to the research of the Swedish Medical Center, COVID-19 had reduced around 83% of the total endoscopy volumes globally. Out of this 82% reduction was recorded in upper endoscopy and 85% was recorded in lower endoscopy. As endoscopy is the major market of ingestible sensors, thus it had experienced major trust during the pandemic. However, Oceania had recorded normal endoscopy procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The global ingestible sensors market is segmented based on sensor type and application. Based on sensor type, the market is divided into temperature sensor, pressure sensor, pH sensor, and image sensor. Apart from this, by application, the market is segmented into medical, sports & fitness, and others.

Global Ingestible Sensors Market Share by Application
The Outbreak of COVID-19 had given Upthrust to the Temperature Segment of the Global Ingestible Sensors Market
The temperature sensors hold the major share in the global ingestible sensors market attributing to their increased use in the COVID-19 crisis. The imaging sensors are expected to grow fastest during the forecast period as it gives a clear view of the targeted organ of the patient to the physician while diagnosing critical diseases. Pressure sensors are emerging in the market as they are used in smart pills and capsule endoscopy to determine biomedical changes around various organs of the human body.
The emerging application of ingestible sensors in sports, astronauts, animal care, mining, fire fighting, and the military for the monitoring of core body temperature as compared with the external temperature of the working environment is generating new opportunities for the growth of the market. Abilify MyCite is the first pill approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the medication monitoring which is used by physicians on the patients suffering from mental disorders.
The global ingestible sensors market is further segmented based on geography including North America (the US, and Canada), Europe (Italy, Spain, Germany, France, and Others), Asia-Pacific (India, China, Japan, South Korea, and Others, and the Rest of the World (the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America).
