Released by Graphical Research in January 2021, the “Asia Pacific mHealth Market Value 2020-2026: Forecast & Trends” report analyzed research conducted by the United Nations, the impact of recent mHealth initiatives by regional governments, and other key factors to gauge the trajectory of the regional mHealth industry over the next 6 years. Among its key takeaways, it predicted the value of the Asia Pacific mHealth market will reach more than $99.4 billion by 2026. Some of the foremost factors driving this growth will be the increased use of mHealth services by physicians and the use of smart wearable devices by geriatric populations.

The industry forecast highlighted several recent developments in mHealth to substantiate its report. For instance, it said geriatric populations are increasing in these markets, and chronic diseases, especially neurological illnesses, are becoming more common. The complete report can be obtained at
