MarketsandMarkets has released a report titled “World Sensors Market in Healthcare Applications (2012-2017), Global Forecast & Analysis - Segmentation by Type of Sensor (Temperature, Pressure, Chemical, Flow, Level, Position, Image and Biosensors), Monitoring, Therapeutic, Diagnostic, Drug Discovery & Delivery Applications, Geographical & Country-wise Markets”.
This report has been created following a comprehensive research study on the sensors and the industry associated with it. It recognizes the overall sensor markets and its sub-segments in healthcare applications, divided based on revenue and shipments. It provides qualitative analysis at each aspect of the classifications based on sensor types, geography, and application.
Implementation of sensors in the healthcare sector is stimulated by the growing demand for bringing advancement in medical electronics to “sense” and “monitor” pressures, temperatures, biological levels of patients and drugs, chemical that supports varied medical applications. Sensors are capable of promoting safety in addition to offering intelligence, precision, reliability, compact configuration and low power consumption. Sensors allow early detection of ailments, enabling quick prevention or cure.
Demand for improved care in healthcare units, new medical applications for sensors, developments in sensor technology, emergence of sensors in medical applications lead to revenue growth in sensors market. Sensors market in medical applications is also backed by aging population, demand for medical diagnosis and cure in under-developed countries, healthcare costs, and wide-spread diseases. North America and Europe are developed countries serving as major shareholders in the revenue of sensors within healthcare applications. The rapid emergence of advanced sensors in modern medical equipment implemented in developing geographies like Asia and Africa will contribute to increase revenue over the forth-coming years.
