Market Scenario

Ingestible sensor is a critical healthcare technology which positively impacts various clinical areas such as health, nutrition, and fitness. They are interactive devices which are used for medical analysis of the human body. These sensors come in a user-friendly design and have non-invasive applications, which attract patients. Ingestible sensors are pills or wearable patches which monitor and diagnose the health of a patient and display the report on a smartphone connected via the Internet. These pills or patches include video chips, lens, systems or software chips, and data antennas which enable real-time health monitoring. Furthermore, ingestible sensors include capsule endoscopy including controlled drug delivery by gathering images and monitoring individual luminal fluids.

Market Research Future anticipates the maturity of the global ingestible sensor market with a CAGR of 21.36% valued at USD 14,365.12 million owing to the advent of medication adherence. It is presumed that the extensive use of medical applications coupled with technology is fueling the growth of the ingestible sensor market over the forecast period. Concerns related to overcrowded waiting rooms in hospitals and unaffordable health insurance is leading to the extensive utilization of medical technology. It gives rise to real-time health monitoring and diagnosis. Modernization of healthcare infrastructure is efficiently transforming the medical system, giving rise to enhanced patient care even in remote locations, with improved public health, and ease of workflow. However, high cost of smart pill technology has led to the limited utilization of medical sensors in underdeveloped countries is expected to hamper the growth of the ingestible sensors market over the assessment period.
