A trend that is currently prevailing in the patient monitoring market relates to the adoption of less-invasive, more accessible, patient-centric monitoring device configurations. This is exemplified by the movement toward minimally invasive and non-invasive modalities in the cardiac output market and the uptake of wireless telemetry solutions and remote patient monitoring platforms in both hospital and alternate care sites. Furthermore, emphasis is now being placed on patient comfort and mobility across lower-acuity care settings, wherein gaps in monitoring are further being filled with portable solutions. With respect to consumables, there is a shift in demand toward disposable units in many regions as a proactive means of reducing cross-contamination risk and reducing liability concerns. Each of the aforementioned trends are in line with the general drive to improve patient outcomes through reduced complication and mortality rates, thereby promoting long-term cost savings. This will, in turn, help to improve the quality of care, while also alleviating pressure associated with budgetary constraints across the care continuum.
In the United States, despite the growing demand for quality patient monitoring solutions, some hospitals cannot afford high-cost monitoring platforms in light of budget constraints. In addition, the shrinking hospital profit margins, reimbursement cuts and consolidation within industry (i.e. private practices closing in favor of security of hospital affiliation) all reduce the total market opportunity and increase the bargaining power of GPOs. While alternate care opportunity continues to grow, it will not be able to outpace this rate of consolidation.
Reduced public healthcare budgets across Europe continue to limit growth in many patient monitoring segments, most notably those that have matured. Purchasing decisions by government systems, such as the National Health Service (NHS) and the diagnosis-related group (DRG), have made price play a greater role in the selection process for capital equipment. Limited budgets have also resulted in hospital closures or consolidation in favor of centralized treatment centers. These factors have enabled low-cost competition to consistently seize opportunity in the market; consequently, the price of medical devices continues to be driven lower, especially in smaller countries that make fewer large purchase deals each year.
Despite these limiting factors, the US and European markets are expected to grow at CAGR’s of 4.6% and 6.3% respectively over the forecast period until 2025.
