Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Telecom team said: ''The Global Mobile Health Application market is an emerging market. Hence, many new mobile health application providers are entering the market. Moreover, the incumbent application developers in this fragmented market are coming up with a variety of innovative applications. For instance, Etihad Etisalat Co. (known as Mobily), the second largest mobile operator in Saudi Arabia, has partnered with Qualcomm Inc. and the Dr Sulaiman Al-Habib Medical Group to launch a baby ultrasound MMS service. Similarly, the US department of Veteran Affairs has launched a post-traumatic stress disorder coach app. Thus, development of new applications is a major trend in the Global Mobile Health Application market.''
According to the report, one of the main drivers is the increasing adoption of smartphones and social networks. Smartphones enable users to access data such as health tips, health-based games, doctors' advice on diseases, and online medical reports. Moreover, the Global Smartphone market is expected to grow tremendously during the forecast period.
Further, the report discusses that low penetration of smartphone and broadband services in rural and semi-urban areas is one of the major challenges confronting this market.
