Application Insights

The chronic illness & at-risk-monitoring segment led the global industry in 2021 and accounted for the largest share of more than 23.30% of the overall revenue. This is due to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and the demand for point-of-care testing. Chronic diseases, such as diabetes, need monitoring to check the progression as well as the regression of the disease in patients. Thus, several devices designed to track activities as well as monitor the risks associated with the health of patients are available. For instance, in June 2020, the integrated Continuous Glucose Monitoring (iCGM) FreeStyle Libre 2 system from Abbott was approved by the U.S. FDA. This device makes it possible to monitor glucose levels in adults and children (aged 4 years & above) in real-time.

Furthermore, the system was offered at the same price as that of the FreeStyle Libre 14-day system, which is nearly one-third the cost of other continuous glucose monitors. Quantum Operation, Inc., a Tokyo-based startup, introduced a wearable noninvasive continuous blood glucose monitor at the 2021 CES. Thus, the introduction of such innovative and affordable systems is expected to positively impact segment growth. Wellness monitoring is the second-leading segment after chronic illness & at risk-monitoring. Wellness monitoring involves tracking healthcare indicators and digitally monitoring using devices, such as Fitbit products and Apple Watch.

Fitbit uses a three-dimensional accelerometer system that helps track motion as well as the intensity of that motion. Fitbit’s algorithm is designed to convert raw accelerometer data to relevant information as well as to check the calories burned by users and the soundness of their sleep. This algorithm is also used to track the heart rate of patients. For instance, in April 2022, Fitbit’s new PPG (photoplethysmography) algorithm to detect Atrial Fibrillation (AFib)was approved by the U.S. FDA. The technology will power Fitbit’s new function for irregular heart rhythm notifications. The different data points gathered from Fitbit devices are anticipated to be used by several cancer research institutions to monitor patients.

As a result of such advancements, the industry is expected to grow. Wearable technologies are rapidly extending their reach and evolving to provide solutions for healthcare and wellness. In 2022, at an event called “CES 2022: A Digital Health Showcase”, companies in the MedTech industry showcased their new range of wellness and health devices. Moreover, in September 2020, the I Libre Sense Glucose, a sport biosensor, was introduced by Abbott. The device is made specifically for athletes to help them better understand how their blood glucose levels and physical performance are related. Libre Sense is a biosensor based on Abbott’s FreeStyle Libre continuous glucose monitoring technology.
