Healthcare WLAN Market Segmentation Analysis- By Product Type
Healthcare WLAN Market based on product type can be further segmented into Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN), Wi-Fi, Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX), Wireless Wide Area Network (WWAN), and Others. Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) segment held a dominant market share in the year 2021. The WPAN technology segment is further segmented into Bluetooth, RFID, Ant+, Zigbee, Z-wave, and UWB. The large share of WPAN technologies can be attributed to the fact that these technologies are user-friendly, secure, and affordable. WPAN is used in a variety of medical applications, including telemedicine, ubiquitous and continuous patient monitoring, and wireless-integrated medical devices, owing to its many advantages, which include low power consumption, compact size, simple protocol, and wide compatibility, it helps to boost the market.
However, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) segment is estimated to grow with the fastest CAGR rate of 13.6% over the forecast period 2022-2027. WiMAX is a technology developed by the WiMAX Forum that allows for high-speed wireless data transfer across large distances of up to 50 kilometers, high data rates of up to 70 Mbps, and high mobility, up to 150km/hour. WiMAX technology is an ideal alternative for telemedicine service providers in both fixed and mobile environments for its benefits in mobility, transmission speed, QoS, and security. High-bandwidth transmission can greatly reduce transmission time for high-quality images such as ultrasound and medical images. With today's vast network capability, many monitoring and diagnostic activities can be run at the same time. Strong QoS improves data transport reliability and efficiency. For instance, in a prehospital management system in an ambulance, diagnostic images might be transferred from the ambulance to the hospital, allowing clinicians to begin diagnosing as the patient is being transported. WiMAX networks can be utilized to create a hospital intranet. Only a few WiMAX base stations can cover the entire hospital in place of numerous WLAN access points. This will not only save the implementation costs but will also improve the network's quality. Such use of WiMAX helps to boost the market over the forecast period 2022-2027.
Healthcare WLAN Market Segmentation Analysis- By Component
Healthcare WLAN Market based on components can be further segmented into Hardware, Software, Services, and Others. The Services segment held a dominant market share in the year 2021. Support and maintenance, as well as professional services, are included in the services sub-segment. The volume of data has been steadily expanding since the deployment of IT in healthcare, and data storage and maintenance expenses have risen in recent years. Furthermore, healthcare organisations lack the necessary IT personnel to handle this massive volume of data. As a result of the rising costs and a scarcity of qualified personnel, numerous institutions have chosen to use healthcare IT businesses' maintenance and support services. In October 2020, for instance, Infosys and Mobile Health AG cooperated to build up and manage cloud and infrastructure services, as well as support, security and monitoring, and platform management services for Mobile Health AG across several locations. This factor is estimated to boost the segment over the forecast period.
However, Software is estimated to grow with the fastest CAGR rate of 14.9% over the forecast period 2022-2027. Medical software is a sort of healthcare management software that can be used in a variety of settings in hospitals. Over the last few years, medical software has grown essential for day-to-day patient administration. Patient registration, appointment scheduling, billing, and e-prescribing are all features of medical software. Medical software also aids in the management of electronic health records, the storage and retrieval of imaging data, and the overall practice management process. This is also anticipated to contribute to market expansion throughout the forecast period.
Healthcare WLAN Market Segmentation Analysis- By Geography
The Healthcare WLAN 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 37% in the year 2021. The well-established healthcare business and improved reimbursement facilities in the region are the primary elements accountable for the region's highest market share in the future. Owing to the higher adoption of digital healthcare in the United States, as well as the high concentration of key market players and rising investments by companies in research and development activities for the launch of advanced products, the United States holds the majority of the market in the North American region.
Furthermore, the Asia-Pacific is estimated to grow with the fastest CAGR over the forecast period 2022-2027. This is owing to a rise in government initiatives for digitalization and automation, as well as increased consumer expenditure on health due to rising disposable income in the region's expanding economies. In 2022, Indian government intended to expand healthcare spending to 3% of its GDP. To improve the country's healthcare infrastructure, the Indian government plans to implement a credit incentive programme of INR 500 billion (US$ 6.8 billion). Additionally, the increased use of advanced technologies and the implementation of IT programmes are projected to drive the growth of the Healthcare IT Market in the near future.
Healthcare WLAN Market Drivers
Increasing Demand for Electronic Health Records is Enhancing Market Revenue
The secure communication of electronic health data between healthcare providers, payers, government agencies, and other healthcare organisations is known as electronic health information exchange. Revenue cycle management software, often known as practise management software, assists clinicians in scheduling appointments, verifying insurance coverage, collecting payments and copays, managing patient follow-ups, and dealing with insurer denials and other collection concerns. This solution assists clinicians in meeting billing and claims management standards while also improving practice administration by streamlining processes for patient registration, scheduling, check-in, charge entry, referral management, check-out, follow-up, collections, accounting, and reporting. According to several studies, the cost of installing an EHR system ranges from INR 9 lakh to INR 45 lakh (about $15,000 to $70,000), depending on a variety of parameters such as the EHR's functionality, the hospital's size, and scope. Such wide application and importance of EHR help to boost the market over the forecast period.
The Wearable Devices Demand for Continuous Monitoring is Driving the Market Growth.
Owing to the proliferation of smartphones and the acceptance of wearable devices, medical devices, and diagnostic centers are experimenting with body-worn sensors that can monitor vital signs and transmit them in real-time to an online platform which can be remotely accessed. For instance, in 2019, the UK's consumer spending on medical products, appliances, and equipment was valued at $23,023 million, according to the Office for National Statistics (UK). Such developments are likely to have an impact on wearable device demand. According to the International Diabetes Federation, healthcare expenditures for diabetes treatment in the United States were valued at USD 294.6 billion in 2019 and USD 109 billion in China. Such growth is anticipated to further augment the demand for wearable devices by patients for checking their blood sugar levels.
Healthcare WLAN Market Challenges
Low Adoption of WLAN in Under
