DUBLIN, Sept. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Mobile Health and Fitness Sensor Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
A sensor measures physical quantity and converts raw data into observable data, which are used by various industries. Mobile health and fitness sensors are used in health and fitness devices to measure various body parameters. Rapid and continuous development in sensing technology can assist in regular patient monitoring.
This would help in bringing down healthcare costs and provide improved treatment results. Sensors help in gathering patient health-related data and in the maintenance of electronic health records, which can reduce inefficiencies in patient record maintenance. Going forward, the use of mobile health and fitness sensors in consumer healthcare is expected to boost the Global Mobile Health and Fitness Sensor market.
The analysts forecast the Global Mobile Health and Fitness Sensor market to grow at a CAGR of 40.29 percent over the period 2013-2018.
The Global Mobile Health and Fitness Sensor market covers the present scenario and the growth prospects for the period 2014-2018. To calculate market size, the report takes into account the unit shipments of health and fitness sensors used in wearable, implantable, and mobile health and fitness devices.
The report, the Global Mobile Health and Fitness Sensor Market 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers North America, Europe, the APAC region, and the ROW; it also covers the Global Mobile Health and Fitness Sensor market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
With growing demand from consumers, vendors have started developing multi-functional sensors that can be used to measure different body activities with a single device. The decreasing size of sensors led to a concomitant increase in the demand for implantable sensors. This demand is expected to increase during the forecast period of 2013-2018.
According to the report, increased health awareness is a major driver for the Global Mobile Health and Fitness Sensor market. Aging populations and an increased incidence of diseases coupled with higher healthcare costs are some of the concerns and people are becoming increasingly health conscious and are constantly monitoring their body condition to keep fit.
Further, the report states that lack of standardization among health and fitness devices remains a major challenge to the growth of the Global Mobile Health and Fitness Sensor market.
