Executive Summary




                                              Executive Summary
                                              Advancements in Wireless and Sensor Technologies to Create New Opportunities
       Biomedical sensors are used            Technological advancements in the areas of wireless and sensor technologies are resulting in the
       to create a wireless network           development of more reliable and cost-effective solutions for the patient monitoring systems market.
       system known as the Body               Usage of these technologies in patient monitoring systems offers the benefits of efficient data management
       Area Network (BAN)                     and convenience to patients.
                                              Advances in sensor technology have resulted in the development of sophisticated patient monitoring
                                              systems based on biomedical sensors. Biomedical sensors are used to create a wireless network system
                                              known as the Body Area Network (BAN). These sensors can measure patient vital signs such as blood
                                              glucose levels, blood pressure and the electrical impulses of the heart and brain. The data collected is then
                                              transmitted to a control node, which then sends it to a base station to store the data for further review.
                                              Wireless Intelligent Sensor (WISE)-based monitoring devices not only predict and prevent emergency health
                                              situations, but are also used to monitor vital patient medical parameters. Wireless technology can be used
                                              for the continuous monitoring of patients without confining the patient, unlike wired bedside monitors. This
                                              technology helps in the quick and timely transmission of data in critical care settings for swift intervention
                                              by physicians, thereby improving patients’ quality of life.
                                              Remote Patient Monitoring Devices to Drive the Future Growth of Semiconductors
                                              Increasing sales of remote patient monitoring devices (or telehealth monitoring devices) will drive the
                                              market for patient monitoring semiconductors in the forecast period. Semiconductors in remote patient
                                              monitoring are used for sensing and monitoring the health of the patient, and collecting, storing and
                                              transmitting or sharing data wirelessly. For efficient monitoring, demand for microcontrollers with high
                                              processing capabilities and analog Integrated Circuits (ICs) with the capability of integrating various
                                              functions into a single chip is increasing. Data collected by the sensors is sent to the microcontrollers, which
                                              help in transmitting the data to the receiving system, thus playing a key role in transmitting the data and
                                              displaying it at the other end.
                                              In 2011, the sales volume of remote monitoring devices was 146,982 absolute units, and is expected to
                                              reach 321,092 absolute units by 2016, growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14% during
                                              2011–2016. The figure shows sales volumes for remote patient monitoring devices for 2011 and 2016.

Executive Summary




                                              Remote patient monitoring systems come with multiple connectivity options for healthcare devices (such as
                                              blood pressure monitors or pulse oximeters), as well as USB and Bluetooth peripheral interfaces, a touch-
                                              screen, microphone, speaker, and display units, among other things. The patient is surrounded by a wireless
                                              body sensor network and various semiconductor components such as microprocessors, microcontrollers,
                                              analog ICs and connectivity ICs are used to extract the data from the monitoring device and send it to a
                                              remote display device. With the increase in the sale of remote patient monitoring devices, the market for
                                              semiconductors in patient monitoring systems will also increase.
                                              Mature Markets in Developed Countries Limits the Overall Growth of Semiconductors
                                              In developed countries such as the US, due to the increased levels of awareness among patients and
                                              healthcare providers, the market for patient monitoring devices has reached maturity and growth rates are
                                              decreasing. This limits the sale of these devices and so the related demand for semiconductors is limited in
                                              these countries. The pre-existing wide acceptance of patient monitoring devices in developed countries is
                                              the reason for this trend. These devices are critical elements of patient care in hospitals, ambulances and
                                              homecare. The other reason for the developed countries reaching maturity levels is the long life-span of
                                              patient monitoring devices. Considering this trend, target regions for patient monitoring devices and the
                                              semiconductors used in them will be developing countries such as China, India and Brazil.
                                              Network Related Challenges of Monitoring Devices that Use Wireless Networks
                                              There will be a need for high-speed and comprehensive access to wireless networks, reliable and scalable
                                              wireless infrastructure, secure and fast databases, and the utilization of network intelligence and
                                              information. As a result, patients wearing portable or mobile devices will need to access private or public
                                              wireless networks. Wireless networks consist of chipsets and sensor nodes or motes that process
                                              information and communicate the information among each other. The sensor node generally consists of
                                              both sensing and wireless communication units. However, there is a need to improve the quality and
                                              reliability of the devices so that they can be operated in ad-hoc wireless mode (a mode in which all the
                                              devices of the wireless network are connected directly and there is no central system with an access point).
                                              Also, with the lack of wireless coverage and fluctuations in networks in some areas and in cases where the
                                              patients may not be reachable there is a necessity for ad-hoc wireless networks to be implemented.
                                              Advances in technology such as Bluetooth low energy, ZigBee green power, Wi-Fi direct and EnOcean are
                                              enabling wireless sensor networks in the application of patient monitoring devices.
