According to the latest data and projections from Juniper, mobile health is poised for unprecedented growth over the next five years.
Juniper’s freshly published research indicates that mHealth and mobile fitness apps will continue to balloon in popularity and prevalence through 2018.
In Juniper’s report – ‘Mobile Health & Fitness Monitoring, App-enabled Devices & Cost Savings 2013-2018‘ – projections are made which suggest that 96 million people will use app-enabled mHealth devices by 2018.
That’s up from just 15 million this year.
Juniper Research revisits the continuing challenge and pressure to reduce costs in both the private and public health sectors in this edition. The report provides unparalleled coverage of mHealth cost savings projections, founded on three comprehensive scenarios, progressing from conservative to optimistic.
“As mobile fitness devices become more widespread, they will pave the way for more critical mHealth services delivered through the smartphone,” observes Anthony Cox, the report’s author. “While mHealth and mobile fitness are two discrete markets – with divergent audiences – increased usage of the former will stimulate wider awareness of the latter.”
