Furthermore, according to the GLOBOCAN 2020 report, approximately 628,519 new cancer cases were reported in Germany in 2020, including 69,697 new cases of breast cancer, 67,959 new cases of prostate cancer, 64,804 new cases of lung cancer, 57,528 new cases of colorectum cancer, 35,147 new cases of bladder cancer, and 333,384 other cancers.Also, as per an article published in BMC Health Services and Research in April 2022, the number of new cancer cases is estimated to increase by 20% by 2030 in Germany. Therefore, the rising incidence of cancer is predicted to increase the adoption of patient care monitoring equipment, which in turn is anticipated to augment market growth over the forecast period.
The rising geriatric population is also contributing to the growth of this market. For instance, as per the data published by the OECD, 18 million people living in Germany were aged 65 or older in 2021, and this number is projected to reach 21 million by 2030. Thus, the aging population, which is more prone to developing chronic diseases that require proper monitoring and diagnosis, is expected to increase the adoption of monitoring devices to regularly monitor their condition and status, thereby propelling the growth of the studied market.
Furthermore, the rising company activities in developing advanced patient care monitoring equipment are expected to increase their demand among consumers, thereby boosting the market’s growth. For instance, in December 2021, Xiaomi launched the Redmi Watch 2 Lite smartwatch in the European market, in Germany, for EUR 79 (USD 84.06). It supports several features, including tracking blood oxygen levels, steps taken, and heart rate.
Therefore, owing to the aforementioned factors, the studied market is expected to grow over the forecast period. But the high price of technology is likely to slow the growth of the market for patient care monitoring equipment over the next few years.

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Germany Patient Care Monitoring Equipment Market according to our research experts:
Cardiology is Expected to Witness Significant Growth in the Germany Patient Monitoring Market Over the Forecast Period
The cardiology segment is expected to witness significant growth in the patient care monitoring equipment market in Germany over the forecast period owing to factors such as the rising burden of cardiovascular disease and its risk-associated factors and the growing adoption of cardiac monitoring devices.
Cardiac monitoring is the continuous or intermittent monitoring of heart activity with the goal of assessing the patient’s condition in relation to their cardiac rhythm.Additional monitoring components allow cardiovascular pressures and cardiac output to be monitored and displayed as required for patient diagnosis and treatment.
The rising prevalence of hypertension, stroke, diabetes, and other cardiovascular diseases is the key factor driving the demand for cardiac patient monitoring equipment, hence bolstering the segment’s growth. For instance, as per the German Heart Surgery 2021 report, about 92,838 heart surgeries were performed in Germany in 2021, including 36,714 isolated heart valve procedures, 27,947 isolated coronary artery bypass grafting procedures, and 329 isolated heart transplantations. Thus, with the high number of cardiovascular surgeries, the patient requires regular and ongoing monitoring, which increases the demand for cardiac patient care equipment. This is anticipated to fuel segment growth over the forecast period.
Furthermore, the rising number of product launches for monitoring and early detection of heart conditions is also expected to bolster market growth. For instance, in September 2021, Withings launched a cardiac monitoring smartwatch, ScanWatch Horizon, in Germany, which includes a slew of heart-health monitoring features such as heart rate, ECG, breathing disturbances, blood oxygen levels, sleep, and physical activity tracking. This watch enables the patient to identify heart rhythms, as well as use the ECG feature to help detect atrial fibrillation.
Because of things like the growing number of people with heart disease and diabetes and the number of new products coming out, the studied segment is expected to grow over the next few years.
