According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Wearable patch Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” the global wearable patch market witnessed strong growth during 2015-2020. Wearable patches, also known as electronic skin and smart patches, are used for drug delivery, disease monitoring, and diagnosis. They are small, thin, and flexible and are helpful in maintaining health and wellbeing in patients suffering from prolonged conditions, such as diabetes and cancer. They can be worn or stuck to the skin directly on the affected body part to collect data at regular intervals and transmit information to health information systems (HIS) or even smartphones. Wearable patches can monitor oxygen levels, blood pressure, heart rate, glucose level, and body temperature. Some of the commonly used wearable patches include sweat analyzing patches and pain-relieving patches.
