Ingestible Sensor Market Overview


The CAGR for the global ingestible sensor market is projected to be 21.36% until 2023. The ingestible sensor market is projected to be worth USD 14,365.12 million by then.


Many health professionals, including physician’s assistants, doctors, and nurses use ingestible sensors to help them monitor and diagnose patients better. These sensors also help these professionals formulate effective and life-saving health plans for these patients.


Ingestive sensors are swallowed. In this sense, they are able to show professionals the real condition of the patient’s interior body. These sensors don’t harm the patient and don’t require invasive surgeries or biopsies to install. Invasive surgeries and biopsies are painful and always come with the possibility of a severe illness or even death resulting from an unforeseen infection.


COVID-19 Analysis


COVID-19 is a novel virus that has the same effects on the world that the Black Death did in the 14th century. Both Yesenia persists and COVID-19 are changing the world in profound ways. The Black Death led to the rise of Europe. It also catapulted the world into the modern era. COVID-19 is pushing the world into the digital era. It has also cemented e-commerce and e-businesses as an acceptable way for people to live, work, and shop.


Governments around the world realized that COVID-19 could not and should not be taken lightly. Therefore they enacted worldwide lockdowns and quarantines. These were temporary since they didn’t really do what they were intended to do which was contain the spread of the coronavirus. In any case, many businesses found that the effects of these quarantines and lockdowns were long-term and detrimental.


Many businesses around the world were forced to either halt production, at least temporarily or dramatically scale back production. Many businesses were forced to close their doors permanently since they were no longer able to remain either financially profitable or economically viable.


The companies in the global ingestible sensor market suffered the exact opposite fate. They actually thrived because of COVID-19. The reason was that health professionals and front-line workers were looking for safer ways to diagnose patients remotely. They found the answer in ingestible sensors.


Ingestible Sensor Market Dynamics



  • Drivers


Technologies in the health sector are advancing at a rapid pace. This, combined with the fact that more health professionals and front-line workers are using medical apps more often is a major factor that’s driving growth in the global ingestible sensor market.


Another factor that’s driving ingestible sensor market growth is the fact that COVID-19 has overwhelmed the healthcare systems in most nations. Consequently, hospitals are overcrowded. There are often not enough beds for all of the patients who are admitted (mainly thanks to COVID-19.) Doctors and health professionals are trying to alleviate this bottleneck by diagnosing and treating patients remotely whenever possible.


Another factor that’s driving growth in the global ingestible sensor market is the fact that more and more people in developing nations (especially in America) can’t afford good health insurance. Therefore, they may not have the money to be able to afford fancy and effective, yet expensive medical procedures. The next best alternative is to be diagnosed and treated using ingestible sensors.



  • Opportunities


COVID-19 when combined with recent advances in digital and medical technologies has created many opportunities in the global ingestible sensor market. Healthcare infrastructure is rapidly modernizing in many countries. This gives health professionals options that were unthinkable even a few years ago of effectively treating and diagnosing patients remotely. Many companies in the global ingestible sensor market are responding by investing heavily in research and development to try to develop a new generation of advanced ingestible sensors that will have more and innovative applications in the future. They will also be able to save more lives faster.


Ingestible sensors have expanded the scope for medical care in remote rural areas by allowing doctors and healthcare professionals to diagnose and treat people effectively remotely.



  • Restraints


Ingestible sensors are extremely expensive. This is especially true of ingestible pills. Therefore, only wealthier people and wealthier hospitals can afford them. This is a major factor that’s restraining growth in the global ingestible sensor market.



  • Challenges


Perhaps the greatest challenge that companies in the global ingestible sensor market face lie in trying to develop better ingestible sensors that are more effective in terms of diagnosing and treating patients faster - ideally before they get sick - while keeping the prices of these devices in the affordable range for the global masses.



  • Cumulative Growth Analysis


The CAGR for the global ingestible sensor market is projected to be 21.36% until 2023. The ingestible sensor market is projected to be worth USD 14,365.12 million by then.



  • Technological Analysis


Proteus Digital Health is a major American player in the global ingestible sensor market. It is an industry leader because it invested heavily in research and development. Thus, it was able to develop the new generation of ingestible sensors that were better able to diagnose and treat people better and earlier/faster. The company could justify charging more for these new devices. Proteus Digital Health was also able to create a sustainable competitive advantage that made it financially and economically viable.

All regions in the world are growing at decent CAGRs in the ingestible sensor market. The reason for this is the fact that medical technologies are constantly and rapidly improving. The North American region is expected to enjoy the largest ingestible sensor market share for the time period that this report covers. The reason is that healthcare infrastructure and the healthcare markets are developed in both the United States of America and Canada. Hence, it’s easier for these two nations to adopt to using ingestible sensors.


Another reason why the North American region dominates in term s of market share is because health care technologies are increasing dramatically and rapidly in the United States of America and Canada. Even Mexico is seeing rapid growth in healthcare technologies. This phenomenon makes it easier for doctors and other health care professionals to start to monitor, diagnose, and treat people remotely.


More people and healthcare professionals are using the Internet of Things (IoT) in this region as well. This is another reason why ingestible sensors enjoy a large market share in this region.


North America is also home to some of the largest healthcare companies in the world. These companies invest heavily in research and development and make innovation their motto. This is another reason why the North American region currently enjoys the largest ingestible sensor market share out of all of the regions in the world.
