eHealth Market Trends, Analysis and Future Scope

A Chapter by Markets Insights

The global eHealth market size was valued at USD 85.44 billion in 2014 and is expected to increase at the rate of 15.8% over the forecast period.


Global eHealth Market is expected to reach USD 308.0 billion by 2022, according to a new report by Grand View Research Inc. The transition of the healthcare industry into digital healthcare system for management and analysis of patient health is expected to be the most vital driver of the market.

Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, and technological advancements in this field are few impact rendering factors. Rising use of mobile technologies and internet along with increasing adoption for home care by patients is expected to propel market growth over the forecast period.

Furthermore, expanding scope of IT companies pertaining to the development of real-time applications and software catering to the healthcare industry is expected to drive demand over the forecast period. Federal agencies such as the European Coordination Committee of the Radiological, Electromedical and Healthcare IT Industry (COCIR), in order to encourage and popularise eHealth, formulated various policies since 2007. One of these is the eHealth Action Plan, formulated in December 2012, which includes 16 proposed actions to boost eHealth use, focused on increasing research, innovation, interoperability and adoption.

The American Health Information Community (AHIC) was chartered in the U.S. to make recommendations leading to the likely development of eHealth to the Secretary of the U.S. Health Department. Based on these recommendations, efforts are being made to increase awareness levels for currently available mobile applications and wearable remote monitoring devices.
