COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic's huge number of downloads in 2020, disease management app use increased. In addition, the industry gained speed as a result of government initiatives to promote self-monitoring applications, a tendency toward preventative healthcare, rising demand for telemedicine, as well as increased product launches by mHealth businesses. Due to rising consumer demand for smart applications and wearables, remote patient monitoring, and technical improvements, the market will continue to provide a variety of lucrative prospects. Therefore, the pandemic had a positive impact on the market.

Market Growth Factors

Expanding use of 4G and 5G networks to maintain healthcare services

Better picture quality, less image distortion for video chats, and faster data transfer than those provided by 4G networks are all possible with 5G networks, which provide an improved user experience. In the future, the healthcare sector will profit from the advancement of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies as they enable a larger penetration of networked medical devices, opening new prospects for digital disease management. Therefore, the advancements in the 4G/5G networks are propelling the demand for numerous disease management apps and, thus, the market's growth.

Rising demand for and usage of wearable devices

In particular, monitoring of weight and physical activity is significantly assisted by digital solutions like health apps. Wearable IoT devices are also designed for illness prevention and health maintenance. With the use of these devices, doctors and other healthcare professionals may manage patients' or diseases' progression promptly. They can also have a direct impact on clinical judgment. As a result, wearable technology is frequently used in the healthcare sector to increase patient safety. The market for disease management apps is expected to grow due to the increased use of wearable technology.

Market Restraining Factors

Limited guidance from healthcare providers and physicians

The delivery of mHealth services and disease management apps may change due to the successful use of wireless technology and mobile apps. However, because they receive little to no assistance or support from doctors, patients frequently find it challenging to search for healthcare apps. In addition, many seasoned or established healthcare professionals are reluctant to integrate disease management apps or healthcare IT solutions into their regular activities. This resistance is largely a result of a lack of IT expertise. Using these apps, in the opinion of some medical practitioners, is time-consuming and offers little to no therapeutic value. It is anticipated that this will restrain the expansion of the disease management apps market to some extent.

Platform Type Outlook

Based on platform type, the disease management apps market is characterized into iOS, Android, and others. The Android segment garnered the highest revenue share in the disease management apps market in 2022. The increasing number of Android users, particularly in developing nations, and the growing use of telemedicine in nations like India and China are attributed to the segment's greatest revenue share. In the coming years, it is anticipated that technological developments in Android apps, ease of use, and growing public awareness of digital health will further accelerate segment uptake.
