Executive Summary

The term “Internet of Things (IoT)” was popularized by Kevin Ashton, a British professor at MIT. At the turn of the millennium, he envisioned vendors embedding intelligence into physical objects (or things, basically anything that could support a sensor) and connecting those objects via networks. The concept is broad, so a precise definition is difficult. In general, the IoT is a network of uniquely identifiable endpoints (or things) that communicate without human interaction, typically using IP connectivity. The IoT is a collection of electronic devices that can share information. Some examples of IoT applications include smart factories, smart home devices, medical monitoring devices, wearable fitness trackers, smart city infrastructure and vehicular telematics.

The healthcare sector rapidly adopted various IoT solutions by creating the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). Devices like heart monitors and pacemakers collect and send patient health statistics over various networks to healthcare providers for monitoring, analysis and remote configuration. Although many of these devices are being used in the industry, FDA approval has been a key hurdle for widespread adoption. Another hurdle is insurance, which plays a key role in the healthcare industry. Some major factors driving investment into IoT include advanced and precise results, growing cloud-based infrastructure, and the availability of more cost-effective smart devices. However, market growth for IoT in healthcare is restrained by factors such as lack of funding and business model and data security and privacy issues.

In this report, the market has been segmented based on component, application, connectivity, end-user and geography. Based on component, the IoT in healthcare market has been categorized into medical devices, systems and software, services, and technology. Service providers in the healthcare IoT market deliver customized and integrated programs that help companies generate consistent and improved business results and handle the entire life cycle of services. Integration of IoT medical devices involves several smart, connected devices that can be used to track patient health and alert physicians before any infection occurs. The focus of IoT healthcare systems and networks is to minimize project delivery times and costs through device management and deployment, data security, data collection, and data analytics. Processes and software include remote device management, management of bandwidth use, data science, privacy applications and information security strategies.

The global IoT in healthcare market based on connectivity has been categorized into Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee and other connectivity types. The Wi-Fi connectivity-type segment dominated the market in 2020. Some of the major connectivity types under the other connectivity-type segment include Loran and LTE-M. LTE-M is the wireless network of a cellular carrier, endorsed by the industry group GSMA and by the group of standards 3GPP. It offers cell-tower, tracking-based location services without the need to use satellite-based systems like GPS or Galileo. This feature provides a significant cost reduction for OEMs that require devices to have a fundamental location system. Also, LoRa is a widely used connectivity choice for the deployment of IoT in large areas with many non-critical sensors and control devices. Its use of unlicensed radio makes LoRa the best option for city-wide environmental sensors, streetlamp regulation and surveillance, simple agricultural field control units, and tracking of small objects. The fastest-growing connectivity type in the healthcare IoT market is Zigbee.
