The growing adoption of IoT medical devices is fueling the sector

DUBLIN, June 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Healthcare Edge Computing Market by Components (Hardware, Software, Services), Applications (Diagnostics, Robotic Surgery, Telemedicine, RPM and Ambulance), End Users (Hospitals, Clinics, The Report Ambulatory Care Center) & Region – Global Forecast to 2028 was added to listing.

Edge computing in the healthcare market is expected to grow from an estimated US$4.1 billion in 2022 to US$12.9 billion in 2028, at a CAGR of 26.1% over the forecast period.

Edge computing is growing in popularity across industries as the number of devices increases, driving demand for high-bandwidth applications as Internet service consumption increases. Edge computing is gaining acceptance among healthcare organizations worldwide due to various benefits, including low latency, traffic distribution, increased reliability, and lower costs

Hardware: According to estimates, the hardware segment will account for the largest market share in 2022

The high market share by hardware is due to the large-scale deployment of edge hardware by healthcare organizations to achieve high performance, scalability, and flexibility. Vendors in the market offer comprehensive edge hardware (edge ​​systems for computing, storage and networking) and hardware components (computing systems, gateways/routers, servers and physical data centers) that complete the entire edge infrastructure. Edge hardware acts as the backbone to establish communication and connectivity to enable core edge functions such as collection, filtering, processing, transmission, monitoring, and routing.

Telemedicine and remote monitoring applications for patients account for the largest market during the forecast period

Based on application, the market is segmented into diagnostics, telemedicine and remote monitoring of patients, robotic surgery, ambulance and other applications. Telemedicine and remote patient monitoring are expected to occupy the largest market share during the forecast period. By using edge computing, telemedicine providers can offer a more seamless and integrated patient experience, improving patient engagement and satisfaction. Patients can consult healthcare professionals remotely, access medical records, and monitor their own health and well-being using wearable devices—all from the comfort of their own home

Europe had the second largest share of edge computing in the healthcare market during the forecast period

Due to the presence of numerous edge computing vendors, early technological adoption of smart technologies, rising strategic partnerships, and demand for workload-centric IT infrastructure, North America is expected to hold the largest market share in the edge computing market, followed by Europe. Various government initiatives and the upcoming data handling needs of European and North American companies present a great opportunity for edge computing vendors to expand locally. Adoption of edge computing solutions is growing in Asia Pacific and Latin America due to the increasing deployment of cloud-based services, the need to improve network connectivity, increasing technology integration, and increasing awareness of the benefits of edge computing.
