Telemetry involves sensing and measuring data at a remote source and transmitting that data to a central location, known as a monitoring station. At the monitoring station, it is used to monitor and regulate the process at the remote site. The telemetry information is transmitted or received through a wired link and used to monitor environmental conditions. The need for information gathering and subsequent sharing of information are the factors that will impact the global market.

There is an increasing popularity in the healthcare segment of this market. Wireless Medical Telemetry Service (WMTS) is gaining more popularity in the healthcare segment. The market is anticipated to display significant growth in the automation industry, vehicle (telematics, transportation, and logistics), and retail segments. An increase in the use of smart devices with advanced technologies, such as Big Data, and expansion of the cloud computing market drive the telemetry market growth.

Decreased Air Passenger Traffic and Cargo Transportation amid COVID-19 to Decline Growth

Several companies are involved in designing and developing telemetry solutions for various end-use industries such as healthcare, consumer, aerospace & defense, industry & automation, agriculture & wildlife, logistics & transportation (vehicle), marine & oceanography, energy and power, oil & gas, and hydrography. Amongst these, the healthcare industry witnessed an increase in demand for wireless telemetry systems during 2020-2021 to provide the best treatments to the patient. 

In addition, increase in cases of cardiovascular diseases and several other diseases amid pandemic to witness a surge in demand for the systems for continued monitoring of patient’s health.

  • In a study from Italy, there was a nearly 60 percent increase in the rate of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest during the peak of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.

  • In a study from France, there was a 52 percent increase in the cumulative incidence of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest during a two-month period between February and April 2020 compared with 2019

However, the market witnessed a moderate impact of COVID-19 during 2020-2021 due to disruption in supply chain analysis. The market is highly fragmented with small to large-scale companies. During the pandemic, the small-scale companies have witnessed an enormous impact on their revenue generation due to the temporary shutdown in several high-growth countries. This factor led to limited investment in large volume production of this system.

Growing Adoption of Modern Technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the Latest Trend

Telemetry is the technology that collects and receives real-time data from remote sensors or data collection systems. The introduction of advanced technologies improves the overall performance of the system. Moreover, growing use of the Internet of Things (IoT) improves the battery life for connected devices and miniaturization of hardware systems. Furthermore, IoT devices used for telemetry, such as remote sensors, require low power, low bandwidth, low-code footprint, and local IoT intelligent gateways. Furthermore, the convergence of artificial intelligence and Internet of Things (AIoT) will redefine the future of industrial automation. Artificial Intelligence of Things impacts every industry, including aerospace & defense, automotive, healthcare, supply chain, and manufacturing.

  • In May 2021, Mindtree signed a contract to acquire NxT Digital Business, the cloud-based IoT and AI platform for Industry 4.0 of L&T Group. The company will leverage NxT Digital Business’ capabilities for various industry segments in integrating telemetry data and sensors with its advanced data analytics to drive digitization across the engineering and manufacturing value chain.


Increasing Demand for Wireless Medical Telemetry Services (WMTS) to Aid Market Growth

The concerns over the extra obstruction to medical telemetry systems became a greater issue as the transition from analog to digital television began. To help alleviate additional interference to wireless medical telemetry devices, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) established the WMTS in 2002 by allocating 14 MHz of spectrum for wireless medical telemetry. In addition, WMTS spectrum is used to monitor patient health in real-time. The WMTS is in the 608 – 614, 1395 – 1400, and 1427 – 1432 MHz range. Moreover, WMTS includes devices that quantify patients' vital signs and other significant health parameters such as respiration rates and pulse and system that transport the information through a radio link to a distant area, such as a medical attendants' station, outfitted with a particular radio beneficiary. For instance, wireless cardiac monitors are regularly used to screen patients following a medical procedure.

Therefore, the rising cardiovascular disorders cases and associated mortality have increased demand for WMTS enabled Mobile Cardiac Telemetry (MCT) devices.

  • For example, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 800,000 deaths were reported due to cardiac disorders in the U.S.in 2017, which is also the leading cause of death in the country.

Numerous Advantages Associated with Telemetry System to Increase Its Popularity in Global Market

In recent years, there has been tremendous growth in the adoption of these systems. It refers to an exceptionally progressed and automated communication system where data collection and measurements are made without the individual being available physically. The system allows users to monitor and measure data in real-time. Due to the real-time data accessibility, it is widely used in several industries, including oil and gas, energy and power, mining, marine & oceanography, and hydrography, where continuous monitoring by a human is not possible. Perhaps the greatest benefit of utilizing telemetry technology is that it helps you in decreasing operational costs. Since the information is gathered and transmitted automatically from distant areas, there are diminished prerequisites of the human asset needed to gather the information physically. This can help any organization cut operational costs considerably. As there is no human intervention, the risk associated with it is also reduced. Wireless telemetry systems are discovering broad usage in disaster management. For instance, this framework can be utilized to measure the rising level of water in a river for flood control or measure the speed of wind on high ocean barges. Taken care of with such data progressively can assist with diminishing the effect of regular disasters if not prevent them.

Moreover, the system offers advantages such as collecting data from moving objects, data sharing, and security. The wireless system reduces the wiring cost, installation cost, and retrofit cost. Once the initial installations are done, the wireless systems can easily add new wireless instruments to meet changing and expanded requirements. These advantages associated with such systems are propelling its demand in various end-use industries.


Lack of Skilled Workforce and Stringent Regulation on the Usage of Frequency Band to impede Market Growth

The emerging economies witness major adoption of these systems. However, the other economies lack awareness about the advantage of such systems and services and limited infrastructure investment. These factors are restricting the market growth in undeveloped countries. Despite, in order to improve the knowledge about telemetry, many organizations are consulting training session

  • In October 2020, American Hospital Association (AHA) hosted a webinar on improving telemetry services. This session mainly focuses on its utilization and alarm management. Presenters from Phillips and Huntsville (Ala.) Hospital System will share key findings related to enhancing patient care and safety, reducing workload and nonactionable alarms, and supporting throughput by better-utilizing telemetry.

Wireless telemetry system uses a specific frequency band for data transmission. The frequency band such as 608-614 MHz, 1395-1400 MHz, and 1427-1432 MHz are established by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) mainly for eligible wireless medical telemetry users. The FCC service rules for the WMTS. In addition, the Commission for Communication Regulation (“ComReg”) proposed to introduce a new licensing scheme for scanning telemetry and telecontrol systems in the VHF and UHF spectrum bands. Getting such a license for system operation results in high initial investment. These factors are expected to create hindrances in the growth of the market.
