Forecast Summary

The smart hospitals market will be worth $59 billion by 2026, up from $29 billion in 2021; representing an average annual growth of 15%.
  • The US and China are leading global smart hospital adoption; accounting for $17 billion of market value in 2021. This is the result of digital healthcare initiatives implemented in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, alongside high levels of existing digitalisation within their respective healthcare infrastructure.
  • The US and China will grow to account for over 60% of global smart hospital spending by 2026. It is anticipated that these countries’ pre-existing smart hospital services allied with the formulation of favourable reimbursement structures, will provide an ideal basis for further smart hospital roll-outs.
  • However, the need for pre-existing digital infrastructure such as electronic health records will limit smart hospital roll-outs to developed regions. As a result, it anticipated that Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East will represent less than 5% of global smart hospital spending by 2026.
  • A current lack of interoperability between devices and platforms has resulted in a high degree of fragmentation that will require regulatory intervention on a country-level basis.
  • Vendor lock-in and high investment requirements are the most prevalent issues for healthcare providers in adopting smart hospital services. At a time when healthcare industries are still feeling the impacts of the global pandemic, the long-term benefits of smart hospital services must be demonstrated to foster confidence in these services’ ability to secure a return on investment.
