The Semiconductor in Healthcare Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 10.2% during the forecast period. The collaboration and integration of semiconductor electronics with medical/healthcare applications are increasing, focusing on patient centricity. Conventional techniques of diagnosis and resultant therapies are becoming less invasive and more effective. Intelligent, connected portable devices keep patients out of hospitals and monitored in the comfort of their own homes (telemonitoring). As semiconductor technology has an essential role in these innovations, their demand has been growing strongly across the healthcare sector.

Key Highlights
Semiconductors nowadays are used in different forms and across various devices/equipment used across the healthcare sector. For instance, the Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) are used in implantable medical devices, supplying therapy for several conditions such as pain management, epilepsy, and psychological disorders. A medical IC can be used in machines programmed to deliver drugs in a more productive way to effectively treat and relieve patients’ conditions with few side effects.
The upcoming trend of patient care is moving away from hospitals and clinics and into homes. As home care can help enhance efficiency and lower costs incurred by doctors, healthcare providers and hospitals are using this. This process can be accelerated by portable medical electronics technology. Some of the components used in portable home-based and consumer medical devices are Bio-sensors or bio transducers, Power management: system power control, and power sequencing. Microcontrollers, all of which extensively use semiconductors.
Also, the increasing number of people who have diabetes is significantly supporting the growth of semiconductors in healthcare. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), 537 million adults in 2021 were living with diabetes worldwide — reporting a 16% (or 74 million) growth since the previous IDF estimates in 2019. With the number increasing, the demand for smart devices is expected to grow.
Further, the growing aging population creates a scope for medical device manufacturers due to increased life expectancy rates across regions. Due to advancements in biopharmaceuticals and biology, the advent of novel products, supported by the requirements for better compliance, is expected to drive further the market’s growth.
However, factors such as the ongoing chip shortage and stringent quality requirements of semiconductor devices used in the healthcare sector are expected to challenge the growth of the studied market during the forecast period.
Although the COVID-19 pandemic has led to enormous disruptions in supply chains across industries globally, the condition of the semiconductor industry was no different. However, efforts are being made by the semiconductor manufacturers to ramp up production to reduce the lead times.
The pandemic has left a positive mark on the studied market as well. Owing to increased awareness about digital technologies, people are discovering new ways to monitor their health themselves and only approach doctors in case of emergencies. Thus, the sales of smart devices, especially smartwatches, have witnessed an upward trend recently.

Moreover, the region is the biggest market for semiconductors globally, with countries like China, Japan, India, Taiwan, South Korea, and Singapore contributing to the growth of the healthcare semiconductor segment.
The prevalence of diabetes in China has increased drastically over the past few decades. For instance, according to the International Diabetes Federation, about 1,079.96 million people in 20-79 years will have diabetes in 2021. This is causing an increase in sales of glucometers and other glucose monitoring devices.
Moreover, China’s State Council’ 2014 "National Integrated Circuit Industry Development Guidelines"set the goal of becoming a global lead semiconductor industry segment or industry by 2030. Besides, the Made in China 2025 initiative maintains the knowledge of advanced semiconductor manufacturing as a vital component of China’s future economy and society. Such trends are expected to support the growth of the healthcare semiconductor market in the country.
Increasing investment in the medical device sector is expected to drive the demand for semiconductors further in the Asia Pacific region. For instance, Wipro GE Healthcare, a global medical technology, and digital solutions services provider, launched its new manufacturing facility in Bengaluru, India, under the government’s Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme. The 35,000 sq ft facility is set up for 24/7 operations for manufacturing medical equipment such as cath lab equipment, CT machines, ultrasound scanners, patient monitoring solutions, ventilators, and ECG machines.
Furthermore, South Korea is one of the major investors, consumers, and innovators in the market studied. The country is utilizing AI in its pharmaceutical industry, which is further expected to expand the market growth. According to government data, the Korean market for AI-driven drug development is expected to grow by 40% annually to reach USD 3.9 billion in 2024. Such trends are expected to support the growth of the studied market in the Asia Pacific region during the forecast period.
