Biomedical Sensor Market Segmentation Analysis- By Sensor
The Biomedical Sensor Market based on sensor type can be further
segmented into Physical Sensors, Chemical Sensors, Biopotential
Electrodes, and Bioanalytic. Physical sensors held a dominant market share in
the year 2021. It is owing to the vast array of sub-segments it holds, which helps
the care providers to deliver efficient care and service. For example, mechanical,
thermal, hydraulic, electric, and optical are some of the examples of common
physical biomedical sensors. Blood pressure machines are one of the common
examples of physical sensors and given the rise of people suffering from hypertension
the demand for such devices/sensors have soared. Nearly one billion people or one
in six people have hypertension.
bioanalytic or biosensors are estimated to be the fastest-growing, with a CAGR
of 8.2% over the forecast period of 2022-2027. The following includes enzyme
detection, antigen detection, antibody foundation, and other DNA and RNA
sequencing formulations. The following class of sensors would be highly
demanded in the future owing to the higher-case load in various malignancies. For
example, around 100 various forms of antibodies are under review globally which
have the potential to cure ailments and conditions such as Cancer and other neuro
Biomedical Sensor Market Segmentation Analysis- By
The biomedical sensors market based on the industry can be
further segmented into Pharmaceutical, Healthcare, and Others. Healthcare held
a dominant market share in the year 2021. It is widely owing to the pandemic
pressures, which forced people to rely on various forms of imaging sensors or
blood glucose sensors, pulse oximeters, or even other chemical sensors. Globally,
around 326 million people have been diagnosed with such a virus, while officials estimate
the number of actual patients afflicted with the said virus to be close to 2-3
However, the Pharmaceutical industry is estimated to be the fastest-growing, with a CAGR of 8.41% over the forecast period of 2022-2027. It
is owing to the growing research and development activities being partaken in
biotech and pharmaceutical industries to cure ailments and find cures with plausible
detection and elimination standards. Since around 50 vaccines are under safety
and dosage trials, 49 vaccines have entered into phase II trials, while around
4 vaccines are going through large-scale efficacy tests in phase III. Additionally,
various drugs and monoclonal antibodies are being extensively researched, which
would work on RBD than protein spikes. Owing to such reasons, the market is
Biomedical Sensor Market Segmentation Analysis- By
The biomedical sensors market based on geography can be further
segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and the Rest
of the World. North America held a dominant market share of 35% as compared to the
other regions in 2021. It is owing to two chief reasons, firstly countries like the US have been a forefront leader in medical expenditure, be it public health or
research and development activities. Secondly, the consumption of such sensors
has been immensely owing to the growing geriatric population with varied health
conditions. For example, around 20% of US GDP or $4.1 trillion is spent on healthcare
spending, which is by far the highest contribution and budget allotment for any
country. Additionally, the said region has various pharma giants which allow
for the active use of such sensors.
However, Asia-Pacific is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities to marketers in the projected period of 2022-2027. It is owing to the significant rise in the cases of various diseases such as Diabetes and Hypertension. Additionally, most of the Asia-Pacific countries have noted an increase in the overall geriatric population which would further allow the market to hold great potential.
Biomedical Sensors Market Drivers
The growing proportion of the aging population coupled with new forms of diseases has been a key driver for the market.
The world is growing old, and the said fact has been accepted by various organizations such as CDC, WHO, and others. The brighter side of the said fact is that medical sciences have advanced to an extent, where a patient can live an extended life on supplemental forms of support such as ventilators and artificial hearts or key organs. As per CDC estimates, around 71 million people of the US will cross the threshold of 65 years and would represent close to 25% of the population, which currently is close to 19%. However, populations are burdened with diseases or have a general state of poor health. As per CDC reports, around 22.2% of those above 65 have “fair or poor health” and around 7% of the population need some form of personal care. Furthermore, hypertension or high blood pressure coupled with other cardiovascular diseases allows the use of biomedical sensors. Some forms of biomedical sensors used in gauging blood pressure are liquid coupling direct measurement, pipe-end sensing measurement, indirect blood pressure sensing measurement.
The use of biomedical sensors in the field of nanotechnology along with continual improvements and developments in non-invasive medical applications have been a key driver for the market.
Nanotech enabled sensors to have been continually providing
solutions in the field of physical, chemical, and biological sensing. The said
sensing can increase the detection specificity, sensitivity, multiplexing
capability, and portability for a wide series of health, safety, and environmental
assessments. NNI (National Nanotechnology Initiative) agencies have been participating
and providing coordinated efforts to stimulate the existing and emerging
projects. Some of the major agencies are-> NIOSH, NIH, NSF, FDA, NASA, NIST,
and CPSI. Scientists have found a way to form porous metal nanostructures in thin
films. The findings could lead to improved biosensing devices in the future. Further,
nanotechnology can be extensively used to treat diseases and conditions such as
diabetes, cancer, and various neuro/cardiovascular diseases. As for 2020,
around 490 million people suffer from diabetes globally and around 18.1 million
cancer cases have been prevalent in the world for 2020.
Biomedical Sensor Market Challenges
Security concerns related to the use and transfer of patient information to the providers, supplemented by long-product development cycles and other harms caused by energy to one’s body pose themselves as unique challenges.
The cases of data breaches from the afflicted medical
condition have been increasing throughout the world. As per reports more than
40 million healthcare records have been exposed or have been impermissibly
disclosed over the period of 12 months. Additionally, around 674 reported
breaches resulted in the infringement of data. On average, between July 2020
and June 2021, an average of 3,343,448 healthcare records were breached each
month. Furthermore, machines/ medical sensors such as ECG provides massive
amounts of radiation which can increase the overall risk of cancer. Owing to
such risks, the overall risks are multiplied.

The addition of gold and platinum inks gives makers of consumer electronics, medical devices, sensors, and semiconductors the ability to make lighter, less expensive, and more environmentally friendly products. The new gold and platinum metal inks consist of metal-organic precursors that decompose cleanly at lower temperatures than nanoparticle inks and can be UV-cured.
- In December 2021, Pop-Up electronic sensors could now detect when individual heart cells would misbehave. Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a powerful new tool that monitors the electrical activity inside heart cells, using tiny "pop-up" sensors that poke into cells without damaging them. The device directly measures the movement and speed of electrical signals traveling within a single heart cell -- a first -- as well as between multiple heart cells. It is also the first to measure these signals inside the cells of 3D tissues.
