The global mhealth market size was valued at $70.7 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach $370.7 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 18% from 2023 to 2032. Mobile health (mHealth) is a term used to describe the practice of using mobile devices for healthcare purposes. It encompasses a wide range of mobile health apps and services that leverage mobile technology to improve health outcomes, enhance healthcare delivery, and empower individuals to take control of their own health. There are various types of mHealth devices such as blood glucose meters, blood pressure monitors, pulse oximetry, neurological monitors, cardiac monitors, and others that are used for monitoring health. Various mHealth services include prevention services, diagnostic services, monitoring services, and others, which are provided by healthcare professionals. mHealth has gained significant attention and popularity due to the widespread use and accessibility of mobile devices.
Recessions often lead to budget constraints and reduced healthcare spending by governments, insurance companies, and individuals. This could result in a slowdown in the adoption and implementation of mHealth technologies. Thus, the economic recession is expected to temporarily impact the growth and investment in the mHealth market, whereas the long-term potential for mHealth remains insignificant.
The growth of the mhealth market size is driven by rise in prevalence of chronic cardiac diseases such as heart attack, hypertension, and stroke, which further increase the demand for mHealth devices to monitor the heart health of patients who often experience symptoms related to their heart irregularities, such as palpitations, dizziness, or fainting spells. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 2022 report, about 20.1 million adults aged 20 and older were suffering from coronary artery disease in 2020.
In addition, mobile health applications (mHealth apps) and connected devices enable individuals with diabetes to monitor their blood glucose levels. Therefore, increase in incidence of diabetes is expected to boost the growth of the mHealth market share. For instance, according to the International Diabetic Federation, in 2021, around 90 million people were suffering from diabetes in southeast Asia. This number is estimated to reach 113 million by 2030 and 151 million by 2045.
Furthermore, rise in geriatric population along with chronic diseases is expected to drive the mHealth market growth. For instance, according to the United Nations Report on “World Population Ageing,” published in December 2020, globally, there were 727 million people aged 65 years or above in 2020. According to International Diabetes Federation (IDF) Diabetes Atlas, 9th edition 2020, the prevalence of diabetes among the global elderly population aged above 65 years was about 135.6 million. Thus, rise in geriatric population is expected to drive growth during the mHealth market forecast. Moreover, increase in utilization of advanced healthcare devices and technologies, such as mHealth and wearable devices to enhance efficiency, is the major factor for the growth of the mHealth market share.
What is the Impact of 2023 Recession on Mobile Health (mHealth) Market?
Recessions can impact venture capital and investment activity. For instance, according to a comprehensive new study by the World Bank, published in September 2022, as central banks globally simultaneously hike interest rates in response to inflation, the world may be edging toward a global recession in 2023 and a string of financial crises in emerging market and developing economies that would do them lasting harm.
According to this report, Central banks globally have been raising interest rates this year with a degree of synchronicity not seen over the past five decades, a trend that is likely to continue well into next year. Higher interest rates can discourage investors and venture capitalists from allocating funds to the mHealth market. High interest rates make borrowing more expensive, which can limit the availability of capital for mHealth companies. Startups and smaller businesses in the mHealth sector, which often rely on loans or investments to fund their operations and expansion, may face challenges in obtaining affordable financing. This can hinder their ability to invest in R&D, product innovation, and market expansion.
Thus, the recession is expected to temporarily impact the growth and investment in the mHealth market, while the long-term potential for mHealth remains insignificant. The rise in prevalence of heart diseases, diabetes, rise in demand for remote patient monitoring, and increased patient engagement are trends that can continue to drive the adoption of mHealth technologies, even in challenging economic times. Such trends are expected to bring a high growth rate during the mHealth market forecast period.
