U.S. Digital Health Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The rising mobile and smartphone subscriptions are expected to drive the market growth. According to Oberlo, smartphone penetration in the U.S. has increased from 83% in 2018 to 91% in 2023. According to the Mobile Economy North America 2023, 53% of North America's 5G internet usage comprises services, including healthcare services. In addition, several network companies are partnering with hospitals to provide their network services. For instance, in July 2023, Verizon deployed a private full spectrum 5G network in the VA Palo Alto Health Care System, a veterans' hospital in California.

In August 2023, the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H), a division within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), initiated the Digital Health Security (DIGIHEALS) task to safeguard the electronic infrastructure of the U.S. healthcare system. The project intends to request proposals for proven technologies originally developed for national security purposes through a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) and implement them within clinical care facilities, civilian health systems, and personal health devices. DIGIHEALS seeks to ensure uninterrupted patient care even in the event of a widespread cyberattack on medical facilities, similar to incidents that have led to the permanent closure of hospitals.

Furthermore, the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in the healthcare industry contributes to the growth of the digital health market in the U.S. The U.S. government is undertaking several initiatives to promote AI/ML applications in healthcare. For instance, in October 2023, the U.S. FDA created a Digital Health Advisory Committee to explore the problems related to digital health technologies (DHTs), including augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), AI/ML, digital therapeutics, remote patient monitoring, wearables, and software.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The U.S. market for digital health is characterized by continuous innovation, particularly emphasizing user-friendly telehealth technologies. These advancements are geared towards streamlining adoption for both patients and healthcare providers. This technological integration into healthcare empowers individuals to oversee their health and engage in medical consultations remotely. Furthermore, digital technologies are used in drug discovery, detection, and several healthcare domains. For instance, In October 2023, the Autism Center of Excellence (North Carolina) researchers developed a digital autism screening app for autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The application demonstrated a sensitivity of 87.8% in detecting ASD, accurately identifying a high proportion of children with the condition. It exhibited a specificity of 80.8%.

U.S. Digital Health Market Concentration & Characteristics

Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activities continue to shape the business landscape, with companies seeking strategic partnerships and acquisitions to enhance market presence and drive growth. Notable strategies include new product launches, expansions, and M&As. The market observes a moderate level of M&A activities among leading players. For instance, in February 2024, Aptar Digital Health acquired Healint, a company specializing in digital health in neurology. The acquisition is expected to broaden Aptar's digital health neurology portfolio, making it a prominent competitor in the U.S. digital health market.

Digital health technologies are subject to various regulatory frameworks across the U.S. The structured regulatory framework positively impacts market access, growth, and compliance. For instance, in the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has developed guidelines for digital health technologies. In October 2023, the U.S. FDA created a new Digital Health Advisory Committee to resolve the digital health technologies (DHTs) issues and ultimately promote digital technologies in healthcare.

The potential for enhanced accessibility, cost-efficiency, and improved outcomes drives the global expansion of the U.S. digital health sector. Established industry frontrunners are penetrating emerging markets, indigenous startups are witnessing significant growth, and technology is being customized to suit various contexts. Achieving alignment through collaborative initiatives and national strategies and tackling issues like data privacy, digital disparity, and regulatory intricacies are essential. Expansion efforts typically involve establishing new facilities or plants in different geographical areas or mergers and acquisitions with companies in diverse regions. Many market participants are embracing geographical expansion strategies to bolster their market positions.

Case Study: Scaling up and sustaining the digital transformation of U.S. hospitals brought about by COVID-19

UC San Diego Health, a private health system affiliated with the University of California, San Diego, initially implemented on-site employee screening due to county health orders. Later, it extended its screening resources to the local community, allowing symptomatic individuals to schedule tests.

The hospital also collaborated with its affiliated university and its 15,000 students, achieving a milestone in August 2019, when UC San Diego’s Student Health Services and Counselling and Psychological Services became the first in the University of California system to share an interoperable electronic health record system with the hospital. This integration streamlined test ordering, result notification, and patient care, facilitating quicker turnaround times for imaging studies and expediting communication of health information for students requiring specialized care.

By integrating health systems, UC San Diego Health facilitated a streamlined testing and tracing initiative, supporting the Return-to-Learn program to facilitate the safe resumption of university attendance and studies.

Technology Insights

The tele-healthcare segment led the market with the highest revenue share of 43.2% in 2023. The growth is attributed to growing investments in tele-healthcare platforms post-COVID-19 pandemic. The companies are adopting digital healthcare platforms to provide remote care for individuals and patients with chronic diseases like diabetes. For instance, in January 2023, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) launched a COVID-19 telehealth program called the Home Test to Treat program. The program offers free COVID-19 health assistance, such as telehealth sessions, rapid tests at home, and at-home remedies.

The mHealth segment is the second largest segment, attributed to the significant penetration of smartphones, growing adoption of mobile health applications, and use of smartwatches and fitness trackers. Smartwatches are often paired with smartphones, enabling users to make calls, receive notifications, control music, send messages, and keep a fitness check directly from the wrist. The integration enhances convenience further boosting the segment growth. In October 2023, b.well Connected Health, a patient-oriented health management platform, announced its integration into the Samsung Health app. This initiative aims to give Galaxy smartphone users a unified platform for accessing health data, receiving insights recommendations, and connecting with care providers virtually and in person.

Component Insights

In 2023, the services segment dominated the market with the highest revenue share of more than 37.8%, owing to the increasing software upgrades and a preference for hardware and software advancements.
