The clinical alarm management market is estimated to be USD 1,368.77 million in 2021. It is expected to reach USD 5,280.33 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 25.68% from 2022 to 2027.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to transform the growth of various markets, and the immediate impact of the outbreak is varied. While a few industries will register a drop in demand, numerous other markets will continue to remain unscathed and show promising growth opportunities. Clinical alarm management is one such industry that might have a positive impact due to the COVID 19 pandemic owing to the extensive patient pool getting admitted in the hospital due to the infection as it is essential and mandatory to keep track of patient’s health and to provide proper effective treatment to the patients at healthcare facilities.

However, the false alarms have also been a concern in the current pandemic which is creating unnecessary chaos among the healthcare representatives, which is likely to increase the focus on proper implementation of clinical alarm systems at hospitals and COVID 19 healthcare facilities.

As per an August 2020 research study titled “Curbing COVID-19-Related Alert Fatigue”, the results demonstrated that 85% to 99% of alarms per day at clinical facilities do not require clinical action and COVID-19 creates added urgency for the need to reduce such nuisance alerts to protect the health and safety risks of the respiratory therapists or nurses who investigate alarms in person while wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), which is also still in short supply.

The growth is attributed to growing prevalence of chronic diseases coupled with longer hospital stays, increasing awareness among the healthcare providers in optimizing patient safety using advanced technologies such as mHealth, alarm management systems. Also, growing investment in healthcare infrastructure by government and private health care providers is expected to fuel the market growth. If properly managed or standardized, systems may give the false alarm and sometimes patient health may be at risk. According to OECD, Health at a Glance, 2019 report, almost one third of people aged 15 years and over reported living with two or more chronic conditions, that include cancer, heart attack and stroke, chronic respiratory problems and diabetes, on average across 27 OECD countries globally. In Germany and Finland, the prevalence of chronic diseases rises to almost one in two.

However, Lack of standardization and improper management of the systems may impede Clinical Alarm Management market growth. However, the implementation of big data and artificial intelligence to optimize the workflow, reduction of false alarms and innovation in product technologies are fuelling the market growth.
