Health Self-Monitoring: Technologies and Global Markets
Published: June 15, 2017 Content info: 137 Pages

Report Highlights:

The global market for selected health self-monitoring technologies reached nearly $16.7 billion in 2016. This market should grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 28.3% from $20.7 billion in 2017 to reach $71.9 billion by 2022.

Report Includes:

  • An overview the global markets and technologies for health self-monitoring.
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2016, estimates for 2017, and projections of CAGRs through 2022.
  • Existing health self-monitoring technologies, as well as technologies that are under development.
  • Analysis of major drivers and constraints that will influence the future development of the self-monitoring market.
  • Projections of the market for major health self-monitoring technology platforms, devices, and software.
  • Descriptions and evaluations of different vendors' business models.
  • Assessments of the potential impact of self-monitoring on the way medicine is practiced.

Report Scope:

The present report focuses specifically on technologies that enable the individual to monitor his or her own health. Third-party monitoring technologies thus are specifically excluded, except to the extent that the individual being monitored has direct access to the data, in a form useful for self-monitoring. Apps that extract data from an individual's EHR and format and display those data on the individual's self-monitoring device are covered in the report, but not EHRs per se. The latter are covered in BCC Research report HLC048D.

Additional, unique topics covered in this report include:

  • Self-tracking's usability by target groups, such as seniors.
  • Vendor business models (e.g., Many self-tracking apps are free. How are vendors going to make money in this market?).
  • Structural impacts on the healthcare industry.

    The study includes these major elements:

  • Executive summary.
  • Overview (definitions, enabling technologies, market segmentation).
  • Market environment (demographic, economic, epidemiological, legal/ regulator, healthcare industry).
  • Major health self-monitoring platforms.
  • Health self-monitoring hubs.
  • Peripherals.
  • Software.
  • Company profiles.
  • Patent analysis.

Analyst Credentials:
