BCC Research Publishes a New Report on Global Markets for Long-Term and Home Health Care

Wellesley, MA (PRWEB) September 16, 2013

According to a new technical market research report, Technologies for Long-Term Care and Home Healthcare: Global Markets from BCC Research (, the global market for elder-care technology products was valued at $2.7 billion in 2012 and is expected to reach $3.2 billion by 2013. BCC Research projects the market to reach nearly $7.2 billion by 2018, and register a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.7%.

According to BCC Research, the national health expenditure in the U.S. was approximately $2.8 trillion in 2012, as compared to $2.5 trillion in 2010. In large part, these spending increments are attributable to an aging society. Moreover, the amount spent on healthcare for older Americans is three to five times greater than the cost of care for someone under age 55.

Seniors overwhelmingly want to age in place, but family members living far away worry about their elderly relatives living alone. Advances in communications and information technology (IT) have created products that make remote monitoring feasible. Smart phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and wireless networks are everywhere, including within seniors’ homes. These technologies carry both economic and emotional appeal to caregivers and the elderly.

Broadly defined, elder-care technologies are products and systems that increase the health status and quality of life for seniors. Information and communication technologies can augment the quality and efficiency of care provision, thus improving both the aging and care giving experience. In addition, monitoring technologies have the potential to improve safety for older citizens, manage their health, and assist them in maintaining their independence.

Elder-care technologies include two groups of monitoring systems: home telehealth and safety monitoring. Home telehealth is the use of technology to deliver care in patient’s residence and includes the monitoring of the patient’s physiological parameters and symptoms, as well as education about the condition. Safety monitoring includes assist-call devices, medication-management products, wander-management systems, fall-management devices, smart-home systems, and robotically enhanced mobility-assistance devices. These technologies hold the promise of enormous cost savings for the healthcare system by enhancing the ability of providers to provide timely intervention prior to a deterioration point of acute care.

This comprehensive business report examines the potential market for elder-care technologies, specifically home telehealth and safety monitoring. The study includes sections on descriptions of home telehealth and safety-monitoring technologies and the drivers of their adoption; current status of the long-term care environment, including trends and factors affecting growth; current and projected market status of these technologies; general regulatory and standards overview; patent trend analysis; and in-depth information on industry players.

This comprehensive report is intended for anyone interested in the elder-care and remote-technology markets. Executives, consultants, trade associations and marketing professionals, manufacturers and distributors in the medical device industry, machine-to-machine industry, health insurance industry, long-term care industry, health information technology industry, superconductor industry, and the broadband and wireless communications industry will benefit from the information included this report. In addition, payers, stock analysts, venture capital (VC) funders and investors interested in opportunities in the general healthcare industry, or expanding markets for cellular and wireless communications services will also benefit from the study of this report.
