The personal emergency response system market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% between 2015 and 2020. Constant innovation in the technology and easy adaptability of PERS devices are acting as the driver for the market. With the advancement of technology in the PERS market, auto fall detection technique or motion sensor pendent automatically detect when a senior citizen falls and cannot call for help makes it more convenient for the senior citizen who are suffering for medical disorders such as dementia, poor eye sight, memory challenges, and others.

mPERS (mobile PERS), followed by standalone PERS are fastest-growing industries in the personal emergency response system market. Mobile PERS is an emerging market since the number of people switching to smartphone is rising which, in turn, facilitating the growth of the mobile personal emergency response system devices. It provides mobility to the vulnerable senior citizens to use the devices from any corner of the house, yard or from any place within the range of mobile coverage. Further, increasing awareness of independent healthcare devices among senior citizens has increased the demand for personal emergency response system devices across the globe.

The market for assisted living facilities is expected to grow at a high CAGR during forecast period. Assisted living facilities consist of a combination of wireless and wired technology, with pull-cord stations, call buttons, and wireless pendants to ensure staff members are notified efficiently and quickly. These systems typically alert a customer care center operator who would dispatch the appropriate help. In the event of an injury or emergency, the local emergency response team would be dispatched. Otherwise, a family member, neighbor, friend, or caregiver can be notified for assistance.

North America accounted for the largest share of the personal emergency response system market in 2014; the market in the region is expected to grow at a high CAGR between 2015 and 2020. The reimbursement policies and government regulations are conducive to the development of home healthcare sector in North America. Increasing aging population is also driving the growth of PERS in North America.

One of the key restraining factors in the personal emergency response system market is overall cost associated with the system impacting the adoption of PERS system. Only purchasing the PERS system would not serve the purpose as long as service is not associated with it. So, services that have to be availed to get the help in chronic situations which can increase the cost associated with it. Current market leaders are adopting an acquisition strategy in the PERS market. For instance, in 2015, August Tunstall Americas (U.S.) acquired Healthcare Monitoring Systems, Inc. (U.S) which provides Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) services in central New York. Through this acquisition, Tunstall Americas is expanding its geographical presence in the northeastern part of the U.S. PERS market.
