Furthermore, increasing promotion to adopt health applications by the government and private organizations due to the benefits provided by these applications in monitoring and improving health conditions and lifestyle is also expected to accelerate the app adoption over the years. In addition, the growing number of health applications and continuous improvement of the app quality by the developers is also anticipated to boost the growth of the market for mHealth. For instance, according to statistics quoted by IQVIA in an article published by Medical Device Network in 2021, are more than 350,000 digital health applications available on app stores.

The growing interest of the users to use health applications for chronic disease management is expected to increase the adoption of mobile health applications. In addition, increasing recommendations of healthcare professionals to use mobile applications for better patient care is also another factor anticipated to accelerate the mHealth app adoption. For instance, according to the data published in OrthoLive stated that 93% of the healthcare professionals believed that mobile health applications can improve patients' health. This type of perspective of the healthcare professionals towards the mobile health applications is further anticipated to drive the adoption of the mHealth applications over the years.

Furthermore, an increase in the number of mobile subscriptions and growing internet penetration around the globe are further helping to boost the adoption of health applications. For instance, as per the report published in 2020 by Ericsson, the mobile subscription number exceeded six billion and this is also anticipated to increase over the forecast years.

During the pandemic, the government and non-government organizations promoted the use of mobile health applications for training, self-management of symptoms, information sharing, contact tracing, risk assessment, home monitoring, and decision making to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, as per the data published in the journal Expert Review of Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research, there is a 65% growth in mobile health application download in 2020.

Moreover, data security and privacy concerns of mobile healthcare applications are the major factors expected to hamper the growth of the market for mHealth. Sensitive information accesses, hacking issues, data breaches, automatic installation of malicious programs are some of the major concerns anticipated to impede the market growth. In addition, lower regulatory approval for mHealth applications is also one of the major factors anticipated to restrain the growth of the market. For instance, as per the medical economics report, only 219 mobile health applications got FDA approval by 2018.
