The microsystem technologies market for healthcare applications will grow from $1.2 B in 2009 to $4.5 B in 2015, representing over 1 B units per year in 2015. In the Meanwhile wireless systems will exceed 50% market share. The medical home care market defined as "prescribed home care medical devices" is not expected to "explode" before 2015 but will increase by 125%. This is due to the fact that most medical instruments are lent or rented, and not purchased by the patient. Consumer, over the counter products, and sport/fitness equipment do not fall under the scope of this analysis.
