Growth drivers of Remote patient monitoring device market

The usage of remote patient monitoring devices enables the digital recording and electronic transmission of a patient’s medical data from a single location to healthcare professionals in other locations for analysis and recommendations. Blood pressure, blood oxygen levels, heart rates, electrocardiograms, and blood sugar levels are a few of the medical data the monitoring devices collect during point-of-care testing. The data gathered by the devices is then sent for additional analysis by the medical professionals working in hospitals, intensive care units, and nursing homes.

In 2021, the market for remote patient monitoring devices was worth USD 1.45 billion, and by 2030 it will reach USD 4.07 billion, growing at a 8.74% CAGR during the forecast period.

The technical advancements and innovations for effective self-monitoring goods and equipment and the expansion of government laws to rein in the rising expense of healthcare are the primary drivers of the global market for remote patient monitoring devices. Additionally, the RPMD market is expected to benefit from technological development and the rising prevalence of chronic diseases like diabetes and other cardiac problems that require mandatory life-long monitoring.

Market Dynamics


The market for remote patient monitoring devices is growing due to the increased prevalence of ailments, including heart problems, respiratory disorders, and other conditions. In 2019, cardiovascular illnesses were responsible for 32% of all fatalities globally, killing an estimated 17.9 million people, Per World Health Organization research published in June 2021. 85% of these fatalities globally were caused by heart attacks and strokes. 38% of the 17 million premature fatalities caused by non-communicable diseases worldwide in 2019 were due to cardiovascular diseases.

As a result, the high incidence of diabetes and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease will fuel the expansion of the worldwide remote patient monitoring devices market throughout the forecast period.


  • Fraud is a major factor in the telehealth and telemedicine sectors. The United States Sentencing Commission (USSC) estimates that 330 healthcare fraudsters committed 7.7% of all theft, property destruction, and fraud offenses in the USA during the fiscal year 2020. A growing industry is hampered by the increase in hospital visits caused by healthcare fraud cases.
  • Patients are compelled to visit hospitals more frequently due to the high price of remote patient monitoring services. This could compel the government to reduce healthcare spending, limiting market expansion.


Infectious diseases are among the most difficult medical conditions to treat in hospitals since patients and medical workers are equally susceptible to contracting an infection. Telemedicine has considerable potential to prevent the spread of epidemics and infections linked with healthcare due to its inherent benefits, such as the early diagnosis of diseases and virtual visits that limit overall patient exposure. It reduces the overall number of in-person sessions and travel needed for the counseling process. It helps to stop the transmission of infectious diseases and is a safer way to deliver healthcare.

Market Segmentation

By Product

The special monitors sector led the industry in 2022 with a share of more than 82.75%. It is due to its ability to track clinically significant data before and after surgery, recognize symptoms, and avoid complications.
