A study, recently conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm, BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that the Vietnam telemedicine market is flourishing and projected to grow at a CAGR of 16.1% during the forecast period (2022-2028). The telemedicine market in Vietnam is growing owing to the growing adoption of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and other advanced technologies. Furthermore, the growing geriatric population, and increasing internet and smartphone penetration in the country are also propelling the market forward. Additionally, increasing investment from the government to develop & reinforce the healthcare infrastructure of the country is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the growth of the telemedicine market in Vietnam.

Vietnam’s Growing Geriatric Population propelling Vietnam Telemedicine Market Forward

Vietnam is the 8th most populous country in Asia and the 3rd most populous in Southeast Asia, after Indonesia and the Philippines, according to the 2019 Revision of the World Population Prospects. The World Bank reports that Vietnam is on brink of an aging population. In 2015, Vietnam became an aging society, and the World Bank estimates it will be an aged society by 2035, making it one of the fastest aging countries in the world.

As Vietnam's aging population grows more rapidly than its birth rate, Vietnam's healthcare facilities will be strained and the demand for healthcare services will rise across the country. The integration of AI, machine learning, and Big Data can help companies launch geriatric care services. Thus, new and advanced technologies, such as remote patient monitoring and remote diagnosis are expected to be in high demand during the forecast period, thereby driving the growth of the Vietnam telemedicine market.

Golden population structure of Vietnam is expected to present opportunity for the growth of the Vietnam telemedicine market

Vietnam has undergone significant demographic changes in the last three decades, with a drop in people under the age of 15 years while an increase in people aged 15-64 years.  Therefore, Viet Nam is currently experiencing a golden age of population structure, which means there is only one dependent out of every two employed people.

Vietnamese millennials have contributed significantly to the country's economic growth in recent years, and they are expected to push toward becoming a developed country in the coming years. The age group of 15-64 years represents a favorable demographic for the adoption of innovative science and technology and is expected to stimulate demand for consumer healthcare electronics throughout the forecast period, creating opportunities for growth of the Vietnam telemedicine market.
