Wearable Health Solutions, Inc. (OTCMKTS:WHSI) is growing in a mega-market PERS industry forecast to reach $12.3 billion globally by 2027 from $7.7 billion last year.
According to the 2021 study, ‘Global Pers Devices Market Report,’ QYR Research analyzed the fast growth of the Personal Emergency Response System (PERS). It finds that technology and mobile are trending quickest in growth.
Major corporations such as Philips (NYSE: PHG) and ADT (NYSE: ADT) are leading players in the industry. But remote monitoring ‘telehealth’ remains a fragmented business, ripe for emerging companies like WHSI to gain share.
The PERS devices, also known as Medical Emergency Response Systems, enables a user to push a button and call for help from a remote location. The personal medical alarms and safety alert devices market is growing to clients in a broader demographic.
The key investment consideration for WHSI is gaining a larger market share in the soaring remote monitoring market by employing the newest technology.
Highlights of the study are:
- Overall growth of PERS is increasing YOY from 2016 to 2027. Devices are more technology-driven and compete in the large and dynamic ‘telehealth’ marketplace.
- Mobile is the dominant trend. It accounts for the industry’s largest share of $3.6 billion this year and will expand to $5.2 billion by 2027. At a 7.8% CAGR through 2027, it is the fastest-growing segment of the PERS marketplace.
- In North America, mobile type PERS devices are already dominant with a 42% market share.
- Major corporations such as Philips (NYSE: PHG) and ADT (NYSE: ADT) are leading players in global sales of the PERS devices. Philips is seen as the dominant player in the industry worldwide with a market share of 42.5% in 2021.
- Philips may dominate the branded PERS market, but ‘other’ at 57% share is by far the largest segment. It means that WHSI and other companies combined have the No. 1 share of this expanding but fragmented worldwide market.
So even though Philips is seen leading PERS by brand, Wearable Health Solutions, Inc. (OTCMKTS: WHSI) has an opportunity to take a larger market share through sophisticated technology.
