The growing pool of geriatrics will be the underlying reason for the astounding success of the medical sensors. Their increasing adoption will be attributable to the saddening rise in cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and other cardiovascular diseases across the globe. The incorporation of medical sensors in several conventional medical devices helps in alerting patients of potential problems, thereby bringing in an accuracy disease management to a reliable extent. Additionally, a score of laboratories are deploying medical sensors for automating processes and establishing efficiency in the final output. Yet another incentive for laboratories to use medical sensors is that they eliminate the cost of centrifugation, loading of the analyzers, and sorting amongst others.

Need for Compatible Devices Fuels Biosensors Product Segment

Amongst the various types of products developed with medical sensors, the biosensors are expected to surpass all shares. During the forecast period, the biosensors product segment will progress at a steady CAGR of 7.5%. World Health Organization states that the number of diabetics will reach 366 million by the end of 2030. This alarming statistic will be attributable to the increasing number of diabetics who require frequent monitoring of blood sugar levels. This product segment will also be fueled by a large number of end users seeking wireless, portable, and smartphone compatible devices.

Asia Pacific to Take Over as Leading Region

As of 2014, North America accounted for a share of 35.6% in the global market due to higher consumer awareness and a huge support systems for health monitoring initiatives. The preference for minimally-invasive surgeries has also been at driving the demand for medical sensors in North America. However, analysts predict that Asia Pacific will report the highest growth rate in the forecast period as the region leads the world with a high number of diabetics and patients suffering from respiratory disorders. Furthermore, the strengthening economies of India, China, Malaysia, and Australia will also fuel the demand for medical sensors are they look at upgrading their medical facilities and infrastructure.

The chief operating players in the global medical sensors market are Danaher Corporation, Honeywell International, NXP Semiconductors, and Measurement Specialties. Strategic mergers and acquisitions to create strong product portfolios is the ongoing trend amongst these companies. However, increasing and channelizing research and development strategies towards achieving results will also help companies achieve an impressive share in the global market.
