Fall Detection System Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- Increase in Geriatric Population
The increase in the rate of geriatric population across the globe acts as one of the major factors driving the fall detection system market. Falls are known to be one of the major public health problem for the elderly. The injuries that are caused by falls in elderly people have several consequences to their families, along with healthcare systems.
- Prevalence of Various Chronic Diseases
The rise in the prevalence of various chronic diseases such as dementia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, (COPD), diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease, among others accelerate the market growth. For instance, the number of people suffering from dementia is projected to be 65.7 million by 2030, according to WHO.
- Rise in Demand for Wearable Technology
The rise in demand for smartphone and wearable technology based fall detection system for better accessibility to assistance in case of fall further influence the market. Also, increase in demand for multimodal technology along with growing need to decline medical expenses assist in the expansion of the market.
Additionally, rapid urbanization, change in lifestyle, surge in investments and increased consumer spending positively impact the fall detection system market.
Furthermore, key players offering smartwatches with fall detection extend profitable opportunities to the market players in the forecast period of 2022 to 2029. For instance, Apple Watch 5 comes with an inbuilt watch detection that automatically calls 911 (in the U.S.) when it does not detect movement. Also, development of fall detection technology that is based on Wi-Fi and machine learning approach for detecting fall will further expand the market.
On the other hand, use of data from simulated conditions for designing the fall detection system algorithm, and privacy concerns regarding the use of fall detection systems are expected to obstruct market growth. Also, low practicality and acceptability of the technology among elders and sensitivity and specificity of fall detection system are projected to challenge the fall detection system market in the forecast period of 2022-2029.
