The latest report by IMARC, titled “UAE mHealth Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, finds that the UAE mHealth market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 22.8% during the forecast period (2022-2027). mHealth refers to a branch of eHealth dealing with the collection of patient data. This data is collected through wireless electronic means, including wearables, cell phones, tablets, personal digital assistants, and other mHealth devices. It aids in providing clinical and non-clinical assistance to the users to ensure improved health monitoring, managed medical records, and enhanced disease diagnosis. In recent years, mHealth has gained traction in the UAE to maintain proper health and wellness by tracking sleep cycle, calorie intake, oxygen levels, and heart rate.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of the associated industries. These observations will further be integrated into the report.
UAE mHealth Market Trends:
One of the primary factors driving the market is the growing influence of smartphones and the easy accessibility of high internet connectivity. Additionally, the rising incidence of lifestyle diseases, such as high blood pressure, asthma, and diabetes, that need continuous medical aid, is creating a positive market outlook. Other than this, the growing geriatric population, who are more susceptible to chronic diseases, is positively influencing market growth. Besides this, the expansion of patient analysis, monitoring, and analysis of patient data is escalating product demand across the country. In line with this, the integration of wireless technologies with portable healthcare devices to collect and monitor real-time patient statistics and health represents another major growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the adoption rate of innovative mHealth mobile apps enabling users to track their fitness levels by monitoring water intake, calorie count, and heart rate is significantly rising. This, along with various initiatives implemented by the Government of UAE to promote the adoption of digital healthcare facilities to offer accessible medical services is also providing a positive thrust to the market growth.
