The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
Wearable patches can be affixed to the skin and can be worn for a few hours to a couple of weeks. These patches are used for the treatment and delivery of medications such as nicotine. They are also used as anti-aging patches. The connected wearable patches feature wireless connectivity, in addition to the features of regular wearable patches, which help in monitoring the health of an individual and delivering drugs accordingly.
According to the report, wearable patches help people monitor their health conditions to avoid serious health issues. The increase in aging population, rise in number of diseases, and high healthcare costs are major concerns for people. People are becoming increasingly concerned about their health and fitness. The increasing demand for diet programs and mobile health applications is helping the market to grow as it is encouraging more users adopt wearable patches. The increased awareness of wearable patches among consumers is expected to continue to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.
Further, the report states that the integration of sensors into smartphones, tablets, and consumer-end devices and accessories is a challenge faced by vendors in the market. Mobile health and fitness applications use built-in sensors in smartphones to check heart rate, distance walked, steps taken, and calories burned during a workout. This feature has some limitations as it increases the manufacturing cost of wearable patches, which is a challenge for vendors in the market.
