The Global Nurse Call Systems Market- Market Share and Forecast 2017-2027

The global nurse call systems market was worth USD 1,676.1 million in 2020 and is further projected to reach USD 3,045.6 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period (2021-2027). One of the many factors driving this market's growth is the growing trend of in-home healthcare. Furthermore, the market for nurse call systems is likely to be driven by the need for integrated and diverse platforms with a preference for mobility equipment.

Global Nurse Call Systems Market Overview:

Nurse call systems empower patients to conveniently call or notify their nurse or attendant, thus, enabling healthcare professionals to offer outstanding care to their patients. These sophisticated and technologically advanced systems are meticulously tailored to meet the varied needs of patients and caregivers. As a result, nurse call systems allow nursing staff to respond to patients' needs more quickly and efficiently, leading to higher patient satisfaction. As a result, the demand for nurse call systems is growing across the globe by leaps and bounds.

Growth Drivers

Rise of Home Healthcare System

With the increase in home healthcare and nursing home facilities, manufacturers are emphasizing the need for improved patient response time as well as the elimination of nurse fatigue, as promptness in response is a major requirement in in-patient care. The specially designed software monitors caregiver response time and responds to emergency calls from patients who are unable to move, thereby improving patient care.  With an increase in the number of geriatric patients, home healthcare is becoming the preferred treatment option, and thus the demand for nurse call systems has increased at the household level as well.  Furthermore, there is a growing trend among the elderly for in-home care treatment and recovery, which is positively driving the growth of the nurse call systems market.

Technological advancements

The continuous modification and up-gradation of technology is a major driver of the nurse call systems market. The major players are constantly improving their products in order to improve patient compliance. Advanced technologies such as internet-protocol-based systems and wireless nurse call devices have significantly reduced the margin of error during patient care, increasing consumer trust and propelling the market growth. Some nurse call systems also include a wanderer control system and out-of-bed indications, allowing nurses to reliably monitor patients. Similarly, nurse call pendants, such as the Tek-CARE, are equipped with a passive infrared (PIR) motion detector, which allows staff to keep an eye on patients more efficiently. As a result, the demand for these systems has increased, particularly in psychiatric care hospitals and nursing homes.

 

Restraints

High costs involved in the implementation 

The effectiveness of nurse call systems heavily relies on the hardware, software, and training levels of the staff involved in a healthcare facility. As a result, end-users have to invest heavily in these areas to ensure the effective implementation and use of nurse call systems. Because of the high implementation costs, only major hospital chains can afford to invest in them. This is especially true in developing countries where the cost of basic healthcare is already very high. As a result, they cannot afford to invest in nurse call systems when they lack funds for other basic healthcare equipment. This is the primary factor impeding the market growth.

Impact of COVID-19

The onset of this pandemic has caused significant disruption in healthcare systems around the world. As a result, temporary hospitals are being established to deal with an increasing disease incidence and the influx of patients. Such makeshift hospitals lack the basic infrastructure required for nurses and patients to communicate. As a result, there has been an increase in the demand for remote care. Thus, the rising influx of COVID-19 has resulted in the expansion of healthcare infrastructure and a demand for better communication systems, including nurse call systems. Consequently, this market segment is expected to undergo significant growth during the pandemic.

Global Nurse Call Systems Market: By Type

Based on type, nurse call systems are segmented into the button-based system, integrated communication system, mobile system, intercom system. Nurse call integrated systems have been dominating the market owing to growing technological advancements, increasing user/patient satisfaction, and the need to improve the efficiency of nurses in various places such as long-term health facilities, nursing homes, clinics, and at-home healthcare facilities. What’s more, even the government of different countries are assisting in the funding of hospitals to incorporate such systems.

For example, Kiwanis Care Centre in Canada received USD 750 thousand from the British Columbia government to upgrade its previous nurse call equipment, thereby resulting in growing demand from nurses for specialized equipment with specific options to handle patient requests and deal with emergencies which may lead to an increase in demand for nurse call equipment.

Global Nurse Call Systems Market: By Technology

Based on technology, the global nurse call systems market is segmented into wired communication systems, and wireless communication systems. The wired communication equipment segment has dominated the market due to its consistent security and the fact that its efficiency is not disrupted by a poor network connection.

Wireless technology, on the other hand, is the fastest-growing segment due to its higher and more sophisticated level of integration, lower cost of implementation in comparison to wired systems, and improved patient mobility. Because mobility is critical for geriatric patients and patients in need of assistance, wireless call buttons and pendants are extremely useful.

Global Nurse Call Systems Market: By Application

Based on application, nurse call systems are segmented into Alarms & Communication, Wanderer Control, Workflow Optimization, and Fall Detection & Prevention. Nurse call systems are critical because they not only ensure patient safety but also protect their privacy. The wanderer control system has the highest market share in this category due to an increase in funding to adopt the most effective protection model to protect the patient's privacy, This market is also expected to expand as the number of psychiatric treatment hospitals increases, necessitating constant monitoring of patient movement.

Global Nurse Call Systems Market: By End-User

Based on end-user, the market is segmented into Hospitals and Long-Term Facilities. Hospitals held the largest share in 2020 because of the increasing number of patient inflow, installation of more sophisticated nurse call systems and an increasing number of emergency cases. However, due to the increased number of senior care facilities, Long-Term Facilities are the fastest-growing segment.

Global Nurse Call Systems Market: Regional Insights

Based on region, the global Nurse Call Systems market is grouped into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. North America has the highest market share owing to regulatory reforms, funds raised to upgrade hospitals, reforms in insurance coverage, and technologically powered nurse call systems. Moreover, the US healthcare system is facing a severe lack of nursing staff. It has been estimated that approximately 55% of all nurses employed will retire by 2020; therefore, hospitals are increasing their funding for improved nurse training and enhanced nurse call equipment to address this issue.

However, Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing region in this category, and it is expected to rise even more significantly in the coming years due to an increase in geriatric patients and increased patient inflow in outpatient clinics.

Competitive Landscape

The rapidly growing demand for nurse call systems all around the globe has brought about huge competition in this sphere. This is a consolidated market with numerous suppliers constantly competing with one another by making rapid technological advances to meet the clients’ needs and make handling easier.
