World’s aging population is estimated to grow rapidly to reach one billion by 2030, which accounts for 13% of total population. PERS enables the baby boomers to live independently and with minimal support from caretakers, which is the kind of lifestyle increasingly being preferred by majority of the aging population. The mounting costs of in-hospital care will drive the demand for affordable home- healthcare devices.

As the aging population rises, there is an increasing burden on young caretakers to provide affordable as well as reliable home health monitoring tools for the older generation. This is expected to create a significant demand for PERS that will provide timely medical assistance in time of emergency.

In addition to the above factors, the mobile PERS market is likely to grow owing to the boom in the number of smartphone users and the mobility it provides to senior citizens in terms of active lifestyle.

According to the U.S. Administration of Aging, out of the total number of the elderly people who are over the age of 65 years having broadband access at home, 90% of them own a cell phone. As the integration of healthcare monitoring systems in mobile phones is developing rapidly, the same is expected to drive the mobile PERS market in the years to come.

However, the limited range of landline PERS and increased rate of false alarms, inhibitions about usage of PERS devices are likely to hinder the market growth in the future.

In 2013, North America held the largest share of 40% in the global PERS market. This can be ascribed to the improved health reforms and policies in countries such as the U.S. and Canada. The European PERS market accounted for 37% of the overall revenue, followed by the APAC region. However, improvements in healthcare infrastructure and economies will significantly improve the market share of Asia-Pacific and ROW region. ROW region accounted for 5% share in the global PERS market in 2013.

The dominant players involved in the global PERS market as of 2013 were

  • Philips Lifeline
  • Life Alert Emergency Response Inc.
  • ConnectAmerica
  • Valued Relationships, Inc. and
  • Bay Alarm Medical

Which collectively occupied more than 60% of the market. This oligopolistic market structure has allowed availability of the PERS devices at a competitive pricing across the world.

However, with the technological advancements, the market is set to witness innovations that will lead to further development of affordable devices, thereby, changing the structure of the PERS market in the future.
