Portable Medical Devices Market Growth & Trends

The global portable medical devices market size is expected to reach USD 146.4 billion by 2030 to expand at a CAGR of 11.30% from 2023 to 2030 according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The growing adoption of technically advanced image-guided therapy systems and smart wearables, combined with an increasing demand for real-time and continuous monitoring, is expected to drive the market. Increasing awareness about the benefits of wearables, such as enhanced mobility, has also been attributed to an increase in the acceptance of portable medical devices in healthcare facilities.

Technological advancements and rising demand for home healthcare services are anticipated to drive the market in developing economies. Technological improvements in portable medical devices such as the introduction of new technologies to improve accuracy, utility, workflow, and convenience of access will raise the adoption, hence driving growth. In May 2022, Samsung announced the launch of a new portable digital radiography device, the GM85 Fit, which features a user-centric design for effective and efficient patient care. In December 2021, Nox Medical announced the launch of a Nox A1s PSG system that features the flexibility to use from hospital to home and product enhancements to its precursor, Nox A1.

There is a paradigm shift in people's choice toward home healthcare services as a result of the increase in economic burden and rise in the population of people aged 60 and above. In March 2021, Shimmer, a global pioneer in wearable technology applications, introduced Verisense Pulse+, a new sensor for the Verisense platform that includes a photoplethysmography sensor, a galvanic skin response sensor, and an inertial measurement unit. In addition to measuring the activity and sleep patterns of clinical trial participants, the device may also assess heart rate, oxygen saturation, and emotional responses. Therefore, the shift toward homecare settings is expected to increase the need for portable medical equipment.

Moreover, the outbreak of COVID-19 has extended the role of portable medical devices in the healthcare trade. Portable technologies have always been critical for both healthcare professionals and patients in effectively managing health in remote settings. Medical device manufacturers such as Masimo’s revenue increased by 18.1% in 2020, owing to the increase in the global sales of patient monitoring systems during the pandemic. These aforementioned factors played a crucial role in increasing product demand during COVID-19.
