Global Telehealth Market Trends:

The outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is one of the primary factors influencing the global telehealth market growth. In order to avoid contact and thus combat the spread of the virus, a majority of the healthcare operations have been transferred online, including consultation, telemedicine and telehealth. This, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market significantly. The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and the rising geriatric population, which is susceptible to such ailments, are acting as other major growth-inducing factor. The market is further driven by various technological advancements, such as health tracking mobile apps, which enable individuals to monitor and follow a healthy regime. In line with this, the widespread adoption of wearable devices that aid in keeping a regular check on blood pressure, blood glucose levels, sleep patterns and chronic pain in the body is also contributing to the market growth. Other factors, including rising health awareness and extensive research and development (R&D) activities in the fields of medical sciences and telecommunication technologies, are expected to drive the market growth further. Looking forward, the market value is projected to exceed US$ 264 Billion by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of 39.20% during 2021-2026.
