The Global Photoplethysmography (PPG) Biosensor’s Market is estimated to reach over USD 1094.85 million by 2031, exhibiting a CAGR of 13.8% during the forecast period.
PPG is a simple and practical optical measurement process used to track a person's heart rate. It's a non-invasive technique using a light source and a photodetector on the skin's surface to quantify volumetric fluctuations of blood circulation. The growing prevalence of cardiovascular disorders worldwide is boosting the market for PPG Biosensors. Many people worldwide suffer from some form of cardiovascular disease, which necessitates continuous monitoring of the patient's health. Furthermore, the expanding diabetes population and demand for smaller diagnostic devices will provide further chances for the PPG (photoplethysmography) biosensors market to expand in the future years. The strict laws and regulations enforced for biosensor testing in research facilities, on the other hand, may represent a further challenge to the PPG (photoplethysmography) biosensors market's growth soon. Additionally, various industry manufacturers are investing in developing PPG biosensors that can monitor a variety of other abnormalities in real-time and spare a client from multiple audits and checkups, which is expected to fuel the PPG's growth.
On the other hand, high research and development costs and extensive certification and approval processes are likely to hinder the market expansion. However, the high cost of Photoplethysmography (PPG) Biosensors, may limit the growth of the target market during the forecast period.
The Photoplethysmography (PPG) Biosensors market is segmented based on product, distributional channel, and application. Based on product, the market is segmented as pulse oximeters, smartwatches, smart wrist bands, and other products. By application, the market is segmented into heart rate monitoring, blood-oxygen saturation, blood pressure, and other applications. Based on distributional channel, the market is segmented as Pharmacies, Electronic Stores, E-commerce, and Others.
Based on product, the smartwatches segment is accounted as a significant contributor in the Photoplethysmography (PPG) Biosensors market. The smartwatches category is expected to hold a significant share in the global Photoplethysmography (PPG) Biosensors market in 2021. Consumers' wide adoption of smartwatches to monitor health issues based on daily activities has fueled the biosensors industry's sector expansion. Biosensors market companies' continuous technological advancements are accelerating the launch of new smartwatches, which is driving the biosensors segment's growth.
Blood oxygen-saturation segment witnessed growth at a rapid rate
The Blood oxygen-saturation segment is projected to grow at a rapid rate in the global Photoplethysmography (PPG) Biosensors market. PPG stands for photoplethysmography, an eye technique detecting blood flow fluctuations. The most common use of dual-wavelength PPG is a pulse monitor, which detects arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2). Measuring relative changes in hemoglobin levels using the same PPG wavelengths that are used to detect SpO2 and heart rates could be a highly helpful addition to PPG's market applications., especially in countries such as the US, Germany, UK, China, and India.
The North America Photoplethysmography (PPG) Biosensors market holds significant revenue share in the region.
The North America Photoplethysmography (PPG) Biosensors market is expected to register the highest market share in terms of revenue soon due to product launches and approvals and the rising incidence of cardiovascular diseases. Furthermore, the Asia Pacific region is likely to significantly expand the worldwide photoplethysmography (PPG) biosensors market throughout the forecast period because of product launches or approvals. Also, developing nations are adopting new technologies because of increased awareness and economic stability. The growing use of smartwatches in emerging countries and a few vendors' implementations of PPG technology in their wearable technologies will fuel market expansion for PPG biosensors.
The key players in the Photoplethysmography (PPG) Biosensors market have shifted their focus towards initiating effective strategies such as mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures of major and domestic players to enhance product portfolio and strengthen their market footprint across the globe.
