Report Description

The global Internet of Medical Things market was valued at US$ 51.2 billion in 2019 and is projected to expand significantly with a CAGR of 18.5% from 2021-2027. The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is the incorporation of medical devices and applications that can connect to healthcare IT systems utilizing networking skills. It reduces excessive hospital visits and burden on health care systems by connecting patients to their physicians and allowing the transfer of medical data over a protected network. The advancement of artificial intelligence (AI), especially the rise of machine learning technology, is driving the IoMT’s ability to help reduce the cost of care while improving its effectiveness. The growing investment for health care IoMT solutions, an increasing number of connected medical devices, and the rising utilization of smartphones are expected to drive the growth of the market.

The expansion of the IoMT ecosystem is paving the way for other emerging innovations too such as kiosks that provide care providers with connectivity. Regardless of a patient’s location or condition, an evolution of the IoMT ecosystem would become increasingly impactful. And even the most remote locations are expected to benefit from better access to care as connected medical devices continue to find their way into the hands of both patients and clinicians. Health information systems have also resulted in the rapid growth of mobile computing, wireless networking, sensor networks, and embedded systems entering the age of ubiquitous computing. This has led to the constant growth of applications and devices (i.e., wearable devices) for providing new pervasive health services, which are rapidly being adopted worldwide. According to the Research survey “2017 Trends in the Internet of Things”:

  • 67% of responding IT professionals revealed that their companies had either already deployed an IoT solution, or had an IoT system in trial
  • 21% of respondents stated that their companies intended to deploy IoT solutions within a year, with 11% claiming their companies’ plans for implementing IoT were over a year away


Several Ways IoMT Impacting Health Care

Boston Scientific Corporation, Cisco Systems, GE Healthcare, IBM Corporation, iRhythm Technologies, Koninklijke Philips N.V., Medtronic, Microsoft Corporation, SAP SE, and Welch Allyn are some of the prominent players operating in the global Internet of Medical Things market. Several M&A’s along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate costumers with hi-tech and innovative products.
