Moreover, according to an article published by Single Care, in January 2022, around 50.0 to 70.0 million U.S. adults have a chronic sleep disorder. Sleep deprivation thus results in a higher risk of chronic health problems.

For instance, less than 7 hours of sleep increases the prevalence of arthritis, asthma, heart attack, coronary heart disease, chronic kidney disease, and diabetes by 28.8%, 16.5%, 4.8%, 4.7%, 3.3%, and 11.1% respectively. Furthermore, poor lifestyle such as stress, anxiety, alcohol & tobacco consumption, in addition to excessive LED exposure leads to sleep disorders.

These instances are anticipated to raise the demand for accelerometer medical sensors, to monitor and diagnose the difficulty in muscle movement caused due to various chronic disorders.

Product Insights

The wearable segment dominated the accelerometer medical sensors market with a market share of 69.65% in 2022 and is anticipated to expand at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Wearable accelerometer medical sensors enable measuring and keeping track of the physiological and motion activities of individuals. Wearable accelerometer medical sensors can be fixed in outfits, shoes, headbands, and wristbands or attached straight to the body.

Wearable sensors are used to track, monitor, and record several healthcare pointers, such as blood pressure, pulse, calorie intake, heart rate, etc. Thus, due to the several benefits of wearable accelerometer medical sensors, the demand for these devices is anticipated to increase during the forecast period.

According to an article published by American Diabetes Association, in July 2022, every year around 1.5 million U.S. citizens are diagnosed with diabetes. Thus, to track and monitor diabetes, both Android and iOS mobile devices, have an app called “Diabetes Pal ” which is made specifically for people with type 2 diabetes. It enables the user to either manually enter the glucose values into the app or analyze their blood glucose measurements immediately from their glucose meter via Bluetooth.

Moreover, smart electronic devices, such as fitness bands, and activity trackers have accelerometer medical sensor technologies that are worn close to or on the skin, which detects or analyzes information concerned with human activity such as blood pressure, heart rate, body movements, and many more. Wearable accelerometer medical sensor technology has improved the capture of human health statistics for data-driven analysis in the field of health informatics.

Application Insights

The chronic illness & risk-monitoring segment dominated the accelerometer medical sensor market with a market share of 27.98% in 2022, owing to an increase in the disease burden of cardiovascular diseases such as CHF and hyperlipidemia. Moreover, factors such as a sedentary lifestyle, an increase in stress, and improper eating & sleeping patterns are also anticipated to increase the incidences of chronic diseases. Thus, the demand for more innovative sensors to monitor and track the progress of chronic diseases is increasing, resulting in a rise in the demand for the accelerometer medical sensor market.

The wellness monitoring segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Wellness monitoring involves digitally monitoring and tracking healthcare indicators using devices such as Fitbit products and Apple Watch which help in tracking motion along with their intensity. The algorithm is intended to convert raw accelerometer statistics to significant information for better checks of the calories burned by the individual and also monitor the body movement during their sleep.

The algorithm also helps in tracking the heart rate and blood pressure of the individuals. For instance, in April 2022, Fitbit received clearance from the FDA for a novel PPG (photoplethysmography) algorithm to recognize atrial fibrillation (AFib). The algorithm would be influenced by the irregular rhythm of the heart notifications, featured on the Fitbit band. Various cancer research institutes are expected to use the few data points gained from the Fitbit band for monitoring individuals.

End-use Insights

The Hospitals & clinics segment dominated the market for accelerometer medical sensors and accounted for a revenue share of 63.84% in 2022. This is attributed to an increase in the number of cardiovascular diseases that are boosting the number of coronary artery bypass surgeries which is one of the most common surgeries performed worldwide, and the procedure primarily occurs in hospitals & clinics.

This is likely to augment the segment during the forecast period. In sequential CABG procedure, anastomosis is performed usually end-to-side to connect the distal end of the graft and a target coronary artery. These types of surgeries account for more resources, used in the cardiovascular domain than any other procedure.
