UK digital health market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

Rising demand for remote patient monitoring and growing smartphone penetration are expected to boost the adoption of digital health platforms. For instance, according to The Mobile Economy Europe, the number of unique mobile subscribers in Europe amounted to 496 million in 2022 and is projected to increase to 507 million by 2030. This signifies a penetration rate of 92% across the European region. Furthermore, it is anticipated that by 2030, a substantial 87% of mobile connections in Europe will be powered by 5G technology. This rise in connectivity is closely connected to the increasing prevalence of internet usage and the widespread adoption of smartphones throughout the continent. This acceptance of advanced mobile technology has subsequently contributed to a heightened dependence on medical, health, and fitness applications. As a result, the expanding digital landscape in Europe is playing a significant role in supporting the market's growth.

Furthermore, the number of patients suffering from chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer's, and cardiovascular diseases is increasing rapidly. As a result, there is a growing demand for long-term patient monitoring services, which is driving the growth of the digital health market. For instance, according to the European Commission's estimates published in the European Cancer Information System (ECIS), the number of new cancer cases has increased by 2.3% compared to 2020, reaching 2.74 million in 2022. Similarly, cancer-related deaths have increased by 2.4% compared to 2020. Moreover, a shortage of medical professionals and an increasing trend towards remote patient monitoring is further fueling the demand for telehealth services, thus fostering market growth.

In addition, telehealth services have become increasingly popular as they provide a platform for patients to engage with healthcare providers remotely. This service offers several benefits including convenience, reduced costs, and eliminates the need for in-person consultations. By facilitating remote consultations, telehealth services can help bridge the gap between patients and healthcare providers, making it easier for individuals to schedule appointments and receive care. These benefits are expected to drive the market growth in the forecast period.

Case Study: European firms have created digital technologies that can scale up to offer solutions for clinical settings, remote care, health insurance, and patient-centered eHealth services.

According to Digital Europe’s published article, “Digital health decade in action: case studies,” early detection, efficient workflows, and accurate diagnosis are essential for better patient care.

Digital health solutions have undergone extensive R&D and require authorization & post market surveillance. Furthermore, they receive ongoing optimization support after delivery to their users.

Electronic Health Data Systems (EHDS) can also facilitate health data access. They can be used on a large scale by companies of all sizes, fostering inclusive collaborations across Europe between academia, hospitals, health companies, & technologies.

Technology Insights

Based on technology, the tele-healthcare segment led the market with a largest revenue share of 43.2% in 2023, owing to the growing adoption of telecare and telehealth platforms for remote patient monitoring and treatment. The use of tele-healthcare technology is becoming increasingly beneficial, particularly in situations where face-to-face interaction between patients and healthcare providers is unnecessary. This is expected to drive the tele-healthcare segment growth. Medical professionals and patients are also showing a growing preference for tele-healthcare services, as they improve access to care in remote areas and reduce the risk of transmitting infectious diseases. These factors are expected to support market growth. For instance, as of 2022, over fifty percent of the countries within the European region of the World Health Organization (WHO) have reported the implementation of teleradiology services.

The mHealth segment held the second highest revenue share in 2023. This can be attributed to the increase in the number of mHealth apps for medical, health, and wellness purposes, as well as the growing number of smartphone users. Furthermore, the constant improvements in mobile app functionality by manufacturers are driving growth. The increasing adoption of mobile healthcare applications for disease management, medication management, patient tracking, women's health, fitness & wellness, and personal health record management, among other things, is also expected to drive segment growth. For instance , according to a survey by Civey on behalf of eco - Association of the Internet Industry, almost one-third of Germans (31.6%) use health apps.

Component Insights

Based on component, the services segment led the market with the largest revenue share of 37.8% in 2023. The dominance of this segment is due to the growing demand for training, staffing, maintenance, resource allocation, and optimization services of tele healthcare components. Market players are increasingly focusing on offering these services to maintain their strong position in the market, which is expected to drive the segment’s growth. Furthermore, the increasing demand for better services and the advancement of electronic health platforms is expected to boost the market share of this segment.

The software segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR throughout the forecast period. This growth is attributable to the rapid adoption of software among healthcare institutions, patients, and insurance payers. Moreover, the availability of various software for health management in the market is also anticipated to drive the segment growth. In addition, the integration of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and data analytics technologies into healthcare software has improved clinical decision-making, predictive analytics, and population health management.

Application Insights

Based on application, the diabetes segment led the market with the largest revenue share of 24.3% in 2023. Increasing prevalence of diabetes coupled with the growing recognition of the need for more accessible and effective tools to support diabetes management is driving the market growth. As per the InsuJet  article, there were 5 million people suffering from diabetes in 2023, which accounts for more than 9.7% of the UK population. In addition, according to a report by Public Health England, the number of diabetes cases in the UK is expected to rise to 4.9 million by 2035. Digital health technologies offer real-time feedback, convenience, and insights that enable users to better understand their health status and take proactive measures to manage their diabetes effectively.

The obesity is the second fastest growing segment in the Europe market. Poor diet and lack of physical activity are the primary contributors to obesity. According to the German Health Update (GEDA 2019/2020-EHIS), over half of the population (53.5%) was classified as overweight, with men (60.5%) being more affected than women (46.6%). In addition, 19.0% of adults were found to be obese. Thus, the rising prevalence of obesity coupled with the increasing demand for personalized healthcare solutions are supplementing the market growth.

End-use Insights
