Publication Month: Apr 2020 | Report Code: TIPRE00010198 | No. of Pages: 152 | Category: Medical Device | Status: Published

The software as a medical device market is expected to reach USD 86,451.62 million by 2027 from US$ 18,488.00 Mn in 2019; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 21.9% during 2020–2027.

Software as a medical device is defined as a software solution used for one or more medical purposes without the software actually being a part of any medical hardware. These solutions can be used across a large range of technology platforms, including medical device, commercial "off-the-shelf" platforms, virtual networks, and others. The unique features of these devices that help them act more than a traditional medical device helps to promote innovation in digital healthcare and protect patient safety. The growth of the market is attributed to the increasing adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) and connected devices in healthcare sector, and advantages of software as a medical device, among others. However, the threat of data breach obstructs the growth of the market to a certain extent. Asia Pacific is expected to register highest CAGR in the market during the forecast period owing to rising healthcare infrastructure and increasing number of healthcare technology-based startups in the region.

Advantages of Software as a Medical Device

The number of technological innovations in the healthcare information technology has dramatically increased over the past few years. Wireless connectivity, artificial intelligence and cloud computing and artificial intelligence are some of the prominent advancements that have helped to transform healthcare. In addition, development of software solutions that now act as medical devices have been categorized and approved by FDA as well as European Commission are now likely to take over as leading edge technologies continuing to a source of seismic shift in healthcare modernization.

The mobile-based applications have seeped in and proved to be an important part of the healthcare for medical as well as non-medical purposes. These software solutions have become an inherent part of the patients’ life in few cases. The applications of SaMD are now not only limited to diagnosis and have widened to make their place in treatment as well as monitoring processes. These software have gained a significant attention as these are able to be run on non-medical computing platforms including personal smartphones, tablets and laptops whose use is now very common and penetrated deep in all the countries.

The SaMD has particularly witnessed a fast growth within the recent years, as there is no hardware involved and the applications have very few constraints for using fast feedback loops for improvement. These solutions are also being piloted constantly to better enable innovation and ensure patient safety as well improve clinical significance at the same time.

There are various advantages associated with the use of these solutions. For instance, software as medical device helps to amplify the effectiveness of medical devices and existing treatment plans thereby offering fast and high-quality data collection leading to better health outcomes. Furthermore, these solutions helps to enhance the builds on existing builds as these are faster and cheaper to update than the hardware solutions. The easy solicitation of user feedback on host devices also assists in shortening market time, quicker product iterations and faster innovations. Thus, the advantages offered by these solutions are expected to drive the market for software as a medical device market over the coming years.

Device Type-Based Market Insights
