These monitors provide real-time data to patients as well as doctors leading to continuous out-of-hospital monitoring of cardiac health. Furthermore, app-based heart monitors have improved patient care with minimization of cost and hospital visits for cardiac monitoring.

Growing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, leading to increasing risk of sudden heart failure coupled with continuous device improvements will offer ample opportunities for market expansion. According to the World Health Organization, approximately 17 million patients die due to chronic cardiac diseases.

Also, several companies are focused on development of wearable devices with integration of novel biosensors. Thus, rising R&D expenditure leading to technological advancements will boost growth potential of wearable cardiac devices industry.

Launch of advanced wearable ECG monitoring device will escalate the wearable cardiac devices market demand

Increasing risk of arrhythmias among patients with cardiovascular diseases will create need for wearable cardiac devices. According to the American Heart Association, arrhythmias affect over 4 million people each year in the U.S. Electrocardiography is one of the effective means to diagnose arrhythmia. Wearable ECG monitoring devices offer observation for extended period of time for atrial fibrillation and post-coronary artery bypass graft procedure.

Innovation in cardiac wearable through research providing extended memory and developed sensors to monitor and store ECG data will drive the demand for these devices in the future. NeuroSky company has developed a customizable ECG biosensor wearable, the LifeBeat band with its proprietary biosensor technology.

LifeBeat also has features including accelerometer, vibration motor, rechargeable battery, microcontroller, etc. within a combined wristband with flexible, convenient rubber arms. Such benefits and ease-of-use will influence customer adoption and thereby increase demand for wearable cardiac devices.

Rising adoption of convenient and small-sized cardiac monitoring patches will lead to unprecedented market growth

Patches are small, adhesive devices that provide patients and cardiologists with timely cardiac health data without disturbing daily routine and normal activities of patient. Real-time data recording through wearable patches generate significant amount of data for analysis and detection of abnormalities in cardiac rhythm.

Patch market accounted for over 48% share in 2019 and will foresee momentous growth during analysis timeframe. Automated calculation of atrial fibrillation through AI will increase its ability to detect risk of stroke that will stimulate its demand. Integration of artificial intelligence (AI) further leads into higher accuracy and fidelity of ECG reporting in real-time.

Significant demand for home healthcare among elderly-base population will stimulate industry growth

Home healthcare segment will grow at lucrative 24.9% CAGR during projection period. Prevalence of cardiovascular diseases among elderly age population will escalate the demand for patient monitoring at home. Hospital admissions can be cost-intensive and may persist for longer period. Adoption of wearable cardiac devices at home result into reduced hospitalizations, lesser cost burden and convenient monitoring of physiological factors necessary for cardiac health.

Growing geriatric population among European countries will stimulate demand for remote patient monitoring in the region
