Market Analysis-

Personal emergency response systems are the devices that let the user to call for help in an emergency by pushing a button. It has three components: a small radio transmitter, a console connected to the user's telephone and an emergency response center that monitors calls. In the event of an injury, disaster, burglary, or another emergency, the button on the device is pressed and the response center dispatch is alerted to send help immediately. That help may come in the form of a family member, friend, neighbor or emergency personnel – depending on the emergency situation. It is very beneficial for seniors who have a history of falling or have been identified as having a high fall risk, older individuals who live alone and people who have mobility issues. Some PERS products offer automatic fall detection, which uses technology to detect falls, and triggers a call for help, even when the wearer is unable to press their medical alert button. For example; every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in an emergency room (ER) for some type of injury related to a fall, according to the National Council on Aging (NCOA).

Increasing Geriatric Population and Increasing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases Drive the Market Growth.

The major factor driving the growth of the global personal emergency response systems (PERS) market is the increasing geriatric population coupled with the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases. For example; The United Nations reported that the world’s population of elderly who are 60 years old will double and those who are 80 years old will triple during the next 30 years at the same time as other age groups will decrease in number (Department of Economic and Social Affairs Population Division, 2017). The most common chronic diseases are cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and chronic respiratory disease, Together, they account for 41 million deaths in the world every year, and this number is increasing (World Health Organization).

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that about 50% of all adults in the US have one or two chronic diseases and that 25% have two or more (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2017). In Europe, about 50 million adults have multiple chronic diseases, In Sweden, 44% of the population have one chronic disease and 25% two or more (The Swedish Agency for Health and Care Services Analysis, 2014). Apart from the societal challenge with the rising number of elderly, and an increased number having chronic disease, there are also challenges related to the projected shortage of health care professionals. One way to meet these challenges is to make use of new information and communication technologies and to offer easily accessible digital health solutions for older adults with chronic disease as support in their self-care. So the personal emergency response systems (PERS) can be used easily to call for help in an emergency.
