U.S. digital therapeutics market

The increasing smartphone and internet usage among the people is one of the significant drivers for digital therapeutic market. For instance, India was ranked 47th for smartphone penetration in 2013 by Google and 36th in 2015. Another significant factor advocating the popularity of digital therapeutics is the cost saving associated with it. Digital therapeutics allow mobile consultations and efficient management of chronic diseases. Chronic diseases are a major threat to the economy and their growth results in high healthcare costs. Statistics published by the CDC in 2012 state that the number of adults suffering from chronic health conditions in the U.S. accounts to about 50% of the total population, highlighting the increasing importance of chronic disease management.

Although the digital therapeutics is a growing market, it is still in its niche phase and is affected by the lack of effective monetization strategies faced by application developers. Currently, advertisements and paid content are the most prominent revenue generating models, but are falling short to meet the financial requirements.

Application Insights

The application segment is divided into diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, central nervous system disease, respiratory diseases, smoking cessation, and others. Diabetes is expected to record the strongest growth owing to its strong market potential. Diabetes causes significant disease burden and despondence among patients who acquire the disease. According to stats, 8.3% of the population of the U.S. is affected by the disease, with 35% of the U.S. adults exhibiting prediabetes symptoms.

Diabetes is expected to register the fastest growth in the coming years because of its high incidence and prevalence. Patients suffering from diabetes require effective management coaching to handle symptoms like polyuria, polydipsia, and polyphagia. Large number of practitioners are using mhealth and have forecasted that diabetes would reach the highest market potential in the span of next 5 years.

End use Insights

The end use segment is categorized into patients, providers, payers, employers, and others. Patients are the primary users of the therapeutic healthcare applications and programs. Chronically ill people require training and guidance, to take proper care of their health and well-being.

Hospitals are expected to grow at the fastest rate due to increased utilization of digital therapeutic applications to deliver affordable urgent care to patients. By using mobile care facilities, hospitals can help patients browse healthcare services and reduce stress levels.

Regional Insights

The digital therapeutics market by region is categorized into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America is a major regional segment in digital therapeutic market. Growing number of reforms to curb the increase in healthcare spending in the country coupled with drive to focus on a patient-centric healthcare approach is anticipated to be responsible for the same. Furthermore, North America is a major hub of a large number of digital therapy providers. The U.S. has been reported to spend USD 3 trillion a year on healthcare. In order to curb this expense, there is a dynamic shift in the U.S. healthcare landscape with focus directed toward preventive care, to promote overall patient wellness instead of medical treatment.

Asia Pacific is expected to register fastest growth rate, owing to two major factors: a highly dense population base that converts into a vast target base and rapid urbanization that includes rapidly changing technological landscape. In addition, constant reforms in countries to address lack of proper infrastructure and maintain sustainable growth through financial inclusion is expected to benefit the market.
