The global Fall Detection System Market is forecast to reach $480m by 2025 from $340m in 2017, growing at a CAGR of 4.5%. The major factors driving growth are: ability to assist in case of fall; growth in enhanced medical alert services; increased demand of wearable technology based fall detection systems.
The annual incidence of hip fractures in the USA is over 300,000 and expected to grow to 500,000 by 2040. The numbers in all developed countries are similar pro rata for their populations. Other than HIP’s technology, there are currently no devices, nor systems, on the market that have or will make an impact on that figure. HIP’s technology is part of the wider spectrum of telehealth products. Frost & Sullivan forecasts a sevenfold growth in telehealth by 2025 – a five-year compound annual growth rate of 38.2%.
