Based on the Type of Devices:

  • Landline-based PERS

The growth in PERS Market is mainly projected due to the rapidly growing aging population throughout the world, increasing the demand for PERS, which is driven by the evolving trend of retired adults and senior citizens opting to adapt to a healthy and an active life-style in independent living communities. The rising costs of in-hospital care will spur the demand for affordable home-healthcare devices. As the aging population rises, there is an increasing pressure on caretakers to provide not only affordable but also reliable home healthcare monitoring systems for the baby boomers. This is expected to create a substantial demand for PERS devices globally. The emerging fall detection sensors and GPS-enabled devices are revolutionizing the PERS market as these are enabled with sensing capabilities, allowing the users to connect to the monitoring care centers in case of an accidental fall and locate them even when he or she is not in a position to press the panic button.

However, the limited financial resources and lack of medical insurance among the elderly, unfavorable and tough reimbursement policies and inhibitions about usage of PERS devices will negatively affect the global PERS market. Factors such as limited range of landline PERS and the increasing rate of false alarms are the major market constraints and are likely to hinder the market growth in the years to come.

Based on the type of device, the global PERS market can be classified into three categories, namely into Landline-based PERS, Mobile PERS and Stand-Alone PERS among which the Landline PERS system is the largest revenue-generating segment. The huge share can be attributed to the preference of landlines by the elderly population over the mobiles for communication owing to their less operational complexity and high reliability. Stand-alone devices will exhibit the fastest growth due to their compact and simple design enhanced with integrated GSM and GPS features, which eliminates the need for additional devices or subscription costs, thereby significantly cutting down the costs which is an attractive feature contributing to the market advancement.

Home-based individuals constituted the largest end-user group, accounting for over 60% of the global PERS market revenue in 2014. The limited income of the elderly population in most of the countries, coupled by the increasing in-hospital healthcare costs will contribute to the growth of PERS market in this segment.
