Selected Pricing Value Chain Analysis done in the full report
  • The major players globally provide their personal emergency response systems at a competitive pricing. The general costs that a user bears include price of equipment, monthly subscription, installation fees, and other miscellaneous charges. However, the pricing varies for different end users. The senior care centers get the PERS in bulk, which are then rented to the elderly people in the living centers at a monthly subscription.
  • IndustryARC estimates that the pricing of PERS Market will decrease for some type of systems that are in the market since a long time, while newer, innovative PERS devices will be in great demand and hence, will show a positive growth in terms of pricing. However, the traditional PERS will not exhibit a significant drop, owing to huge demand of these simple devices among elderly population and people with disabilities.
  • Although the rise in the demand for standalone devices will play a significant role in price rise, the technological advancements and innovations will bring down the cost of developing and manufacturing these PERS considerably. Hence, after an initial increase in price for a couple of years, the average selling price for standalone PERS will start diminishing. The pricing can be a major deciding factor for end-users, elderly population in particular. Majority of the elderly users of PERS are surviving on limited income or a meager pension, and are sometimes dependent on family members. Hence, availability of efficient PERS technologies at lower price will be in demand. Sometimes these PERS devices are available to users at subsidized prices or are reimbursed through government organizations, hospitals as well as public and private health insurance providers.
  • Though the equipment costs of all the companies are within the range of $200-$250, the products of Bay Alarm Medical and Phillips Lifeline are the highest. The higher costs of equipment compared to their competitors does not affect their sales because of the loyal customer base and a wide distribution network. However, many companies are increasingly providing medical alert call systems and monitoring services without any additional cost for equipment and installation. Many companies also provide an additional wearable medical alert unit (such as a pendant or a wristband) at a subsidized cost for the user’s spouse or the partner. Such promotional offers and reimbursement policies has drastically reduced the price of the products for the end-users. Monthly subscriptions that range from $15-$30, usually include a range of 24/7 medical monitoring services.
