Service Insights

The monitoring services segment accounted for the largest share of 59.4% in 2023. Factors, such as the rising incidence of chronic & infectious diseases and demand for remote monitoring platforms in post-acute care, are driving the segment's growth. In addition, increasing investments for inpatient monitoring by leading players is anticipated to accelerate segment growth. Moreover, a rise in demand for mHealth apps connected with glucometer devices to monitor glucose levels due to an increase in diabetic patients propels the market growth. For instance, according to the WHO, around 422 million people across the globe have diabetes, and 1.5 million people die annually due to diabetes.

The other services segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR from 2024 to 2030. Other services include ensuring the wellness of patients and prevention of diseases through various mHealth applications. The growing health-conscious population and a significant rise in the number of fitness apps are some of the key factors boosting the segment growth. Various apps offering health information tips, fitness monitoring, diet & nutrition information, and drug abuse prevention are paving a path for the development of other services in the industry. For instance, FitStar is a popular video-based mobile app that provides personalized fitness training sessions to its users.

Participants Insights

The mobile operators segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2023. An increase in the number of mobile subscribers and improvements in network infrastructure are major factors responsible for the highest share of this segment. For instance, in November 2022, according to the International Telecommunication Union, across the globe, around 73% of the population aged 10 years and above owned a mobile phone. In addition, rising 4G & 5G technologies and growing industry consolidation activities by leading players are anticipated to drive the segment growth.

The content players segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR from 2024 to 2030.

End-user Insights

The healthcare providers segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2023. The widespread accessibility of mobile phones has reached even low- and middle-income countries, enabling virtual screening of chronic conditions and most diseases globally. Chronic disease management requires regular check-ups, lifestyle changes, and frequent hospital visits recommended by healthcare professionals. mHealth effectively enhances patient awareness about their conditions, supports clinical decisions, facilitates lifestyle interventions, promotes medication adherence, provides rehabilitation support, and manages screening regimens. Patients suffering from chronic diseases have sought mHealth as a cost-effective and convenient approach to manage their health effectively.

Thus, such factors are responsible for segment growth. The patients segment has been anticipated to grow lucratively from 2024 to 2030. Factors, such as increased prevalence of chronic diseases and rising adoption of mHealth apps for chronic disease management, are expected to drive the segment growth over the forecast period. For instance, according to the CDC, in the U.S., 6 in 10 people suffer from at least one chronic disease, such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Thus, rising prevalence of chronic diseases has led to the increased use of mHealth apps by patients to manage their health.

Application Insights

The general healthcare & fitness segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2023. Factors, such as the growing prevalence of obesity, due to sedentary lifestyles, rising awareness about personal health, and an increase in the number of health-conscious individuals led to a rise in the demand for general healthcare & fitness apps and devices to track their daily activities. For instance, in May 2022, the World Obesity Atlas 2022 anticipated that, by 2030, globally, one billion people, comprising 1 in 7 men and 1 in 5 women, will suffer from obesity. Thus, a rise in the prevalence of obesity is attributed to the segment's growth.

Global mHealth Services Market share and size, 2023

The medication information segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR from 2024 to 2030. Medication information in mHealth apps typically includes details regarding different aspects of medications that offer users assistance and valuable insights into managing their medication regimens. This helps patients in adhering to their prescribed schedule and identifying medications. In addition, it provides information regarding the side effects and precautions of the medicine.

Regional Insights

The North America mHealth services market dominated the global industry with a revenue share of 40.2% in 2023 owing to factors, such as high healthcare expenditure, increased incidences of chronic diseases, rising geriatric population, and highly developed network infrastructure. The market is projected to expand further on account of favorable government initiatives, a rise in the number of FDA approvals for wearable devices, and increasing adoption of mobile healthcare applications. Moreover, the rising burden of cardiovascular diseases in the region drives the demand for real-time monitoring. The availability of mHealth apps that can provide real-time information related to cardiovascular health can prevent major health issues and reduce the death rate due to sudden cardiac arrest. For instance, in November 2022, Apple, Inc. received FDA approval for its watch-based app released by H2o Therapeutics for monitoring Parkinson’s disease.
