ALBANY, NY, Oct 19, 2016: If mobile network operators have thus far been limited in their role to providing SIM-based network coverage, that’s about to change. The role that MNOs play in the healthcare value chain, especially given the rumblings in the IoT sector, is projected to become increasingly central. These trends and their impact are discussed in detail in a new report that is now available on ResearchMoz.us. The report is titled, “ IoT Healthcare Opportunities for MNOs: Market Forecasts and MNO Approaches.” The report pegs the growth of SIM-based IoT connections at a robust CAGR of 31% from 2015 through 2020.

As the proliferation of IoT in the healthcare sector takes the covers off new trends, more MNOs are expected to be lured by the multimillion dollar opportunities. This trend is already crystallizing with several mobile network operators offering B2B and B2C services using SIM-based IT connectivity as a vehicle to enter new markets. However, it’s still early days for the Internet of Things and even more so for IoT in the healthcare industry. This naturally means that there’s still considerable ground to cover for MNOs in terms of IoT healthcare opportunities. Areas where the most opportunities lie are integration, management, and application. Specific areas emerging as a hotbed of activity in B2B are secure storage, telemedicine apps, fitness devices, analytics, and archiving.

The report forecasts that MNOs will continue to advance in the healthcare IoT sector and make their presence felt more categorically in healthcare IoT. The report finds that markets where healthcare expenditure is already high will stand as the most attractive markets for MNOs looking for IoT healthcare opportunities. A trend to watch out for in the coming years will be the proliferation of SIM-based IoT. Another emergent opportunity is the use of IoT healthcare for sleep apnea diagnosis as well as CRM.

With a collection of comprehensive case studies on companies that are successfully leveraging their telecom networks to expand into healthcare IoT, the report helps potential companies plan their market entry strategies. The study presents case studies of the following mobile network operators: Deutsche Telekom, AT&T, Telefonica, Great Call, and Vodacom. Likewise, case studies of device manufacturers also form an important part of the study. For this purpose, companies profiled include: Life Watch, ResMed, BioTronik, Doro, and Medtronic.

The report also features an entire section dedicated to recommendations and key findings that will guide companies when venturing into the market. According to the report, factors that will indirectly help boost IoT healthcare opportunities for MNOs across the world are a swift growth in the aged population worldwide, supply side pressures resulting in cost rationalization, and a shift away from acute healthcare to home-based care.
