Favorable government reimbursement policies associated with healthcare sector is likely to fuel the growth of connected medical device market in North America region. North America connected medical device market is the dominating region and acquired approximately 55% of the global connected medical devices market in 2015. North America connected medical device market is expected to reach USD 29.2 billion by 2024 from USD 11.2 billion in 2016, by registering a CAGR of 12.7% over the forecast period. Global connected medical devices market is in its embryonic stage and occupied 6% share of total medical device market in 2016 and is expected to witness a healthy growth in near future. Moreover, the global connected medical device market is anticipated to reach USD 73.1 billion by 2024 from USD 17.0 billion in 2016 and predicted to grow at an exponential CAGR of 20.0% during the forecast period, 2016-2024.

On the other hand, Europe spends nearly 10% of its GDP on healthcare industry and is one of the most diverse regions which primarily focus on innovative medical technology, products and services. Countries such as Germany, France, the United Kingdom, and Sweden are increasing strategic investment in research and development sector for the advancement of medicine and bioscience technology. Europe medical technology market was valued over USD 120 billion with 500,000 registered medical technologies in 2016. Europe connected medical device market is projected to occupy 25% of the global connected medical devices market during the forecast period of 2016-2024.

Latin America and Middle East and Africa regions are experiencing limited growth in connected medical device market. Major part of African countries and Latin America are affected due to poor medical facilities. In 2015, Brazil and Mexico invested over 6% of their GDP in healthcare industry. However, lack of awareness, dearth of healthcare facilities and poor quality of health services in low income countries is one of the major obstacles which is hindering the growth of Latin America connected medical devices market. Although, government is investing to improve healthcare facilities and adopting advance medical technologies which is expected to create business opportunities for connected medical device manufacturers.
