The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is increasing online presence of vendors.

Other prominent vendors such as Tandem Diabetes Care and Contec Medical Systems are also selling their devices online to increase their customer reach and overall sales potential.
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is rise in demand for portable medical devices. Approximately 5.4% of the global population does not have access to essential health services. Hospitals/clinics in many remote areas do not have equipment such as patient monitoring devices and medical imaging devices. The problem becomes more acute in remote areas because of many infrastructural limitations like frequent power cuts, unreliable transportation, and lack of space.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High cost of devices. Portable medical devices such as blood glucose monitoring systems, pulse oximeters, ultrasound devices, thermometers, and other point-of-care (POC) devices require frequent battery changes, recharging, and maintenance, which results in high cost. These devices are priced on the basis of the type of function and diagnosis.
