Chapter 1: Introduction
Connected medical devices are a growing market with a greater than 10% CAGR for 2016 to 2021. Fueled by consumer fitness devices and remote monitoring and diagnostic systems, the market is still in its early days. An often-spotlighted value of the Internet of Things (IoT) applied to healthcare, connected medical devices will provide new opportunities for existing medical device manufacturers and connectivity specialists. Further, changing regulatory regimes by the FDA and other agencies are creating new opportunities and requirements for device manufacturers.

The connected medical device market is a subset of the $484 billion medical device market. As such the market drives an underlying set of specialty sensors, platforms and processor applications. This report will spotlight the underlying technologies driven by the connected medical device trend. The report will utilize primary research interviews with manufacturers to develop company-based market sizing and validate total market and forecast assumptions. In addition, these sources will be used along with secondary research to gain insight into technology developments and market adoption patterns.
