The global healthcare sector is one of the fastest growing sectors across the globe, accounting for over 10% of the GDP of most of the developed economies. One of the fastest growing segments in this sector is healthcare electronics (including electronics for both, medical and pharmaceutical fields), with rapid developments in various types of sophisticated electronic devices, equipments and systems fueled by increasing use of new technologies and continuous R&D in this arena. Medical sensor market research study mainly focuses on the sensors used in the complete healthcare sector, the market for all types of sensors used in all electronics for medical and pharmaceutical applications.

Among medical and pharmaceutical applications, sensors first penetrated the medical segment with their in all types of sophisticated medical devices including surgical, radiological, physical medicine, orthopaedic, ophthalmic, obstetrics & gynaecology, neurological, gastroenterology, urology, cardiovascular and anaesthesia devices. Numerous types of medical equipment in all the above-mentioned medical fields slowly became equipped with temperature, pressure, chemical, level, flow, position sensors for over two decades, but the first crucial turning point was the advent of image & fiber-optic technology, leading to penetration of image sensors in healthcare. Several new image technologies led to development of linear, CMOS, NMOS, CCD, and X-Ray - image sensors, which slowly penetrated the medical equipment rapidly increasing the revenue, thereby increasing the medical sensors market size.

The dawn of IT and multimedia in healthcare revolutionized the field of medical electronics, in turn, affecting the medical sensors market. The introduction of networked and connected devices, multimedia enabled medical equipment led to rapid growth in demand for all types of sensors in the medical arena. This has boosted the market size of medical sensors market by several billions over the past decade and is currently one of the major reasons for the huge size of the market. This effect is further boosting the revenue with latest advancements such as wireless sensor networks, smart sensors in implantable medical electronics, and so on.

The field of wireless sensor networking is one of the major focus areas among novel and upcoming fields of research and the latest hot-topic in the field of sensors, the developments of which will drive the sensors market in healthcare applications by a significant extent. Another major evolving field that affects the sensors market is smartphone-monitoring in healthcare involving use of communication technologies for transmission of data acquired through patient monitoring. Other major upcoming aspects in the field of ICT such as the Internet of Things (”IoT”) and Machine-to-Machine communications (M2M) can revolutionize the healthcare electronics segment, indirectly boosting the revenue growth of sensors in healthcare applications.

The growth rate curve took an upward turn with sensors rapidly penetrating the pharmaceutical applications with rapid developments in electronics for drug discovery and drug delivery. Pharmaceutical equipment allowed penetration of advanced sensors in RTDs, Thermocouples, Thermo-wells (for temperature sensing), Torque measurement devices, Transducers, Compression, Ejection, Calibration devices (for pressure sensing), drug levels, pH monitoring, electric impulses and bio-monitoring devices (for chemical, level, flow and bio-sensing). Several new application fields are continuously emerging for sensors in both medical and pharmaceutical segments, which show huge revenue potential in medical sensors market.

Coming to technologies that affected the market, advent of micro-system technologies for use in sensors for both, medical & pharmaceutical applications over the latter half of the previous decade is continuously driving medical sensors market. Micro-system technologies such as MEMS, SI based sensors and micro-fluidic chips have revolutionized the medical & pharmaceutical electronics segment by allowing smaller form factors, greater accuracy & precision characteristics, advanced control and low power consumption in devices & equipments.

The fact that the industry has been continuously witnessing several technological advancements in features offered, form factors, and performance, is supported by development of micro-system technologies such as MEMS for sensors. The revenue is being boosted by new applications in blood pressure, respiratory and kidney-dialysis monitoring, pacemakers, silicon microphones, micro-actuators and microelectrodes for hearing aids and cochlear implants, micro-pumps for infusion drug delivery, needle-free injection devices, IR ear thermometers, atomizers, ultrasound sensors, implanted systems for drug delivery, wireless systems for patient monitoring, advanced imaging devices (resolution, miniaturization), sensors for computer-assisted surgery (force feedback, surgery robots), smart pills for drug delivery, closed-loop systems for drug delivery, miniaturized instruments combining sensors and effectors for image-guided therapy and so on.

Among various types of sensors, bio sensors can be termed as the biggest game-changers for sensors market in healthcare applications in the past two decades, as it can be undoubtedly said that the current huge market size worth approximately $8 billion in 2012 is attained through bio sensors. Bio sensors alone contribute more than 60% of the total revenue and medical sector owing to their phenomenal success in-vitro diagnostics, implantable medical devices, non-invasive surgical tools & equipment, cardiac pacemakers and pharmaceutical drug monitoring systems. Next to bio sensors, others which lead in growth rate are image, position, chemical and temperature sensors for improving the characteristics of sophisticated medical & pharmaceutical equipment primarily due to successful new technologies in these fields to facilitate advancement in existing sensors.

In the aspect of geographical markets, the sensors market in medical applications is further driven by rising healthcare costs, aging population, wide-spread diseases and the need for medical diagnosis and treatment in developing and under-developed regions. The developed economies such as North America and Europe currently form the major shareholders in the revenue of sensors in healthcare applications, but the revenue are expected to increase rapidly over the coming years with focus on globalization by industry players by expanding healthcare into developing economies. U.S. is the maximum revenue contributing market, where the achieved market penetration is the highest. Other strong revenue streams are economies such as U.K., Germany, France and the Netherlands in Europe and China and Japan in Asia.
Given below is an illustrative representation of the percentage shares of the major applications in the global medical sensors market in healthcare applications, in 2011.

Global Medical Sensors Market in Healthcare Applications, Revenue Shares by Application Sectors, 2011

World Sensors Market in Healthcare Applications
Source: MarketsandMarkets Analysis

North America holds the largest share of roughly 42% in 2012, followed by Europe with 32%. These two primary geographical market segments of medical sensors market hold the largest shares, but their revenue shares are expected to decrease gradually over the next 5 years, with roughly 5% of the market space slowly being occupied by Asia Pacific, due to the increasing penetration of sensors in healthcare sectors of its emerging economies.
