Keeping the Doctor Away: The Opportunities for Emerging Electronics in Healthcare
Published: June 24, 2012 Content info: 29 Pages
Description

The worldwide medical device market is over $300 billion annually, but there is increasing pressure from governments, insurers, and patients to bring down healthcare costs. Printed, flexible, and organic electronics have the opportunity to lower costs while also improving the overall quality of care and generating substantial markets. A winning device requires the right combination of sensor, treatment, and/ or electrode technologies and the right market fit. However, many of these technologies have been overhyped, and sorting out real potential is critical. We assess emerging sensor, treatment, and electrode technologies across eight markets to uncover substantial business opportunities for printed, flexible, and organic electronics in healthcare.

  • Athletics and neonatal are near-term target markets for printed, flexible, and organic electronics in healthcare, while broader medical applications will take more time to address.

ANALYSIS

  • Conductive textiles, heart rate, and respiration win for consumer-driven applications, while drug delivery is the best of a weak group of treatment options.
