Growth in the telehealth and telemedicine market is mainly driven by factors such as the rising population, the increasing need to expand healthcare access, the growing prevalence of chronic diseases and conditions, a shortage of physicians, advancements in telecommunications, the rising level of government support, and increasing awareness. However, regional variations in regulations, fraud, and the use of social media for care provision will affect market growth negatively during the forecast period.
Expected Revenue Growth:
The global telehealth and telemedicine market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 26.6% during the forecast period, to reach USD 285.7 billion by 2027 from an estimated USD 87.8 billion in 2022.
Impact of COVID19:
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating global impact on the health of the population and a huge economic impact on most countries. The COVID-19 pandemic, however, provides immense opportunities for telehealth and telemedicine solutions, considering that social distancing is the only existing solution developed so far capable of minimizing exposure. In this regard, telemedicine represents an attractive, effective, and affordable option. Moreover, this technology is of critical importance in keeping healthcare providers safe. Telemedicine services are becoming a critical asset, with important implications across the entire healthcare delivery continuum.
Telemedicine offers several advantages, especially in non-urgent/routine care and situations where services do not require direct provider-patient interaction. This reduces resource use, improves access to care, and minimizes the risk of person-to-person transmission of the infectious agent. Additionally, telemedicine solution providers can remotely identify patients who may require further care using tailored approaches. Thus, telemedicine can be a powerful monitoring and coordination mechanism to ensure the appropriate use of provider facilities.
