- Availability of wireless monitoring devices
- Rising incidence of lifestyle and chronic diseases
- Growing demand for patient monitoring devices in non-hospital settings
- Emerging markets
- Risks associated with invasive monitoring devices
Low-acuity devices are used for monitoring the basic vital signs of a patient. These devices may also be set up at patients’ homes and ambulatory care settings for long-term monitoring. The growth of this market is mainly driven by their advantages over single-parameter monitors and their low prices as compared to mid- and high-acuity monitors.
Globally, the increased use of remote and home patient monitoring is a key factor driving the growth of the multi-parameter monitoring devices market. To reduce hospitalization costs, many healthcare institutions are encouraging home/remote patient monitoring. As a result, the market for remote patient monitoring is estimated to double by the end of this decade, making this a highly lucrative market.
