Executive summary
The ageing population and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases will be two of the greatest challenges in Europe during this century. It is widely believed that connected care solutions can ease the burden on society by enabling more efficient delivery of care and allowing people to live independently in their homes for longer. Berg Insight’s definition of connected care comprises telecare and telehealth solutions that are used for the remote delivery of healthcare and social care services. Today, the most common connected care solution is the traditional telecare alarm, which includes a wearable alarm button that the user presses in the case of an emergency. Next-generation telecare systems are technologically more advanced and can automatically trigger an alarm, for instance if the user leaves home at an unexpected time or forgets to take his or her medicine. Furthermore, next-generation telecare solutions include mobile telecare alarms that users can carry with them at all times. Telehealth solutions involve connected medical devices and monitoring services that are used for the remote management of patients with COPD, chronic heart failure, diabetes, hypertension, asthma, coronary heart disease or chronic kidney disease.

Traditional telecare is the largest and most mature segment of the connected care market with a total of 4.55 million users at the end of 2013. In contrast to this, the markets for nextgeneration telecare and telehealth solutions are still in nascent stages. At the end of 2013, there were 0.69 million users of next-generation telecare solutions in EU28+2, whereas the number of telehealth users reached just 0.06 million. The total number of people using connected care solutions totalled 4.7 million at the end of 2013, as there is some overlap between the three solution categories. The market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 19.8 percent during the next six years to reach 13.7 million connected care users by 2019. Berg Insight expects that traditional telecare will remain the largest segment of the connected care market with 5.6 million users in 2019. However, traditional telecare will be closely followed by next-generation telecare and telehealth that are growing more quickly and will reach a forecasted 4.9 million users and 4.7 million users respectively at the end of the forecast period.
