For instance, in March 2019, Fitbit launched a ‘Fitbit Versa Lite Edition’, which has relative SpO2 pressure sensor, that has the potential to estimate changes in blood oxygen levels and help track new health indicators about health, such as sleep apnea.

“Amongst Product Type, the patient monitoring devices segment is likely to capture significant market share during the foreseeable future

On the basis of product type, the market is categorized into diagnostic imaging devices, patient monitoring devices, and others. Amongst them, patient monitoring devices are expected to witness strong growth during the forecast period. Growing concern about proper monitoring of lifestyle-associated diseases such as blood hypertension, heart attack, and monitoring the health of the individual leads to a significant increase in the market size of the patient monitoring devices. Furthermore, the ease of monitoring the condition of the patient by doctors with some devices such as phones and computers also become a contributing factor to the growth of the market. Additionally, the increasing awareness among people about the advantages offered by patient monitoring devices such as live monitoring, easily operable and lightweight sensors along with the celebrity endorsement of the wearable patient monitoring devices encourages the market growth of the patient monitoring devices.

“North America holds the lion’s share in the Medical sensors market”

During the forecast period, North America is expected to have a higher CAGR due to ongoing industrialization and growing consumer inclination toward healthcare, which have fueled manufacturing output levels, positively influencing the global medical sensor industry landscape. This has also forced developed countries like U.S. and Canada to focus on development of technologically advances medical devices, thus increasing healthcare expenditure. Moreover, developed nations focus more on health care and the public health sector therefore the presence of proper infrastructure leads to the growth of the medical sensors market in the region. Additionally, the growing number of people undergoing diagnosis and treatments due to the rise in chronic diseases also promotes the growth of the industry. For instance, in Canada, costs associated with cardiovascular disease, including physician services, hospitalizations, lost wages, and decreased productivity, were recently estimated to be more than $22.2 billion per year. Thus, increasing spending by governments on the development of healthcare infrastructure is expected to further boost the medical sensors market of the region.
