Wireless technologies have the potential to address various issues currently faced by the healthcare providers such as worker productivity and error rates effectively by enabling instant access to real time and recorded patient information anytime to physicians/nurses from anywhere in the facility. Further, with accurate data storage, wireless technologies reduce chances of life threatening errors such as miss-prescription and incorrect patient information. Wireless health has also made it possible for the patients to send their medical information to the physician wirelessly with fewer personal visits, and the trend is becoming popular over time.

The report analyzes the major drivers impacting the growth of this market to be increasing awareness, aging population, need to combat increasing healthcare expenditure, chronic disease management, and technological advances in the field. The wireless network technologies is the largest segment of the wireless health market, within which wireless personal area network (WPAN) technology market offers an array of opportunities for growth due to the advancements in Bluetooth technology and increasing demand for RFID technology.

The overall wireless health market is highly fragmented and competitive with the presence of various players such as Qualcomm, Inc. (U.S.), Aerohive Networks, Inc. (U.S.), Vocera Communications, Inc. (U.S.), Siemens Healthcare (Germany), GE Healthcare (U.K.), Verizon Communications, Inc. (U.S.), and Cisco Systems, Inc. (U.S.), among others. Some of the prominent strategic moves undertaken by the market players include new product launch, and agreements, collaborations, partnerships, product deployments, contracts and joint ventures. The companies entered into various definitive agreements to strengthen its global position in the market.

In July 2013, Lenovo, a personal computer manufacturer selected Aerohive Networks, Inc. as a Wi-Fi partner for its Lenovo Managed Services in China to provide a comprehensive, managed Wi-Fi solution. This partnership enabled availability of the Aerohive Wi-Fi solution to Lenovo China clients for a range of industrial sectors, including education, healthcare, and enterprises. The strategies employed by the players help them broaden their portfolio, and offer integrated and complementary network solutions in order to sustain their position in the highly competitive market.

The North American region represents the most attractive market due to the changing and unmet needs presented by healthcare providers. North American countries are undergoing various healthcare reforms such as the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act, 2009, and U.S. Healthcare Reforms, 2010, to ensure patient information security and transparency in the healthcare delivery process. The shrinking margins have forced healthcare providers to adopt an efficient way of delivering healthcare services. Use of wireless health technologies helps achieve this, by decreasing hospital stay and readmittance rates.

    The global market is witnessing positive growth dynamics with advancements in wireless information and communication technology, coupled with the availability of inexpensive wireless-based devices. The World Health Organization has calculated significant cost reduction and maternal and perinatal mortality through mhealth adoption. Wireless technologies in healthcare enable wireless transmission of medical information such as health records and real-time patient data through radio/infrared signals/networks, thereby facilitating clinicians to monitor patients remotely in real time, provide timely health information and reminders, and offer support.

    The global market is valued at $23.8 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach $59.7 billion by 2018, at an estimated CAGR of 20.2% from 2013 to 2018. The major drivers impacting the growth of this market are increasing awareness, aging population, need to combat increasing healthcare expenditure, chronic disease management, and technological advances in the field. The increasing adoption of wireless health delivery by medical communities and patients to connect to real-time network communication systems for optimized care is expected to be a major growth factor. However, privacy and security issues, lack of standard communication protocols, and infrastructural and cost issues are stumbling blocks to growth of the market.

    In this report, this market is categorized into four segments, namely, wireless network technologies, wireless sensor networks, handheld devices, and mobile apps. Each segment is further sub-segmented on the basis of technology and type. Wireless network technologies consist of WLAN (Wi-Fi), WiMAX (WMAN), WPAN (Bluetooth, ZigBee, Z-Wave, UWB, and RFID), and WWAN (CDMA, GPS, 3G, and GPRS). Wireless sensor networks are wearable and implantable. Handheld devices include smartphones, tablet PC, mobile phones, pagers, and PDAS. An exhaustive value analysis for all these markets is provided for 2011, 2012, and 2013, with forecast till 2018.

    The overall market is highly fragmented with the presence of various players such as Qualcomm, Inc. (U.S.), Aerohive Networks, Inc. (U.S.), Vocera Communications, Inc. (U.S.), Siemens Healthcare (Germany), GE Healthcare (U.K.), Verizon Communications, Inc. (U.S.), and Cisco Systems, Inc. (U.S.), among others.
