North America was the dominant market for telehealth in 2020. Improved health care infrastructure, a strong IT and telecommunications sector, and increased public awareness of telehealth are the main factors that stimulated market growth. In addition, the increasing prevalence of diseases and the growth of the geriatric population in a country like the United States are contributing significantly to the development of the telehealth market.

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the increasing adoption of digital technologies in the healthcare sector, the rapid development of telecommunications and IT infrastructure in the region. Moreover, the rapidly growing adoption of advertising smartphones on the internet is positively impacting the growth of the market in this region.

The increasing adoption of the latest technologies such as artificial intelligence, data analytics, and 5G are expected to drive the market over the forecast period. Adoption of these latest technologies can improve data analysis, enhance safety and cost efficiency for telehealth market players, thereby boosting market growth. In addition, the high costs associated with health services can be effectively reduced and benefit consumers.

The main issues with using digital health apps are cybersecurity and data breach, which can lead to financial losses for doctors and consumers. This is a major challenge that must be taken up by market players.

The lack of public awareness of the availability of telehealth in developing and underdeveloped countries is a major limiting factor. Moreover, the underpenetration of smart devices and internet connectivity in rural areas of developing and underdeveloped economies may restrain the growth of telehealth market during the forecast period.

Component-based, the hardware segment dominated the market in 2020. Hardware consists of a wide variety of devices such as keyboards, monitors, communication lines and various other devices. Extensive use of a wide variety of expensive hardware peripherals has contributed significantly to the growth of this segment. In addition, increased investment in the acquisition of advanced equipment in hospitals to improve patient care services has a positive impact on the growth of the segment.

Based on end user, the home care segment is estimated to be the most opportunistic segment during the forecast period. The growing number of elderly patients in developed countries prefer home treatments. The growing awareness regarding nosocomial infections is forcing consumers to seek home treatment which is boosting the home care segment of the telehealth market.

App based, the telemedicine segment dominated the market in 2020. Telemedicine is rapidly gaining ground among consumers around the world. In addition, the increasing adoption of internet and smartphones is driving the growth of the segment. According to ITU, around 4 billion people were using the internet at the end of 2019.
