Lack of Suitable Infrastructure in Low- and Middle-income Countries to Restrain Market
Most of the medical devices, including both smart and conventional, are IT-dependent hardware and software, and are powered with the help of electricity. Failure of hardware or bugs in software could affect the overall performance of the device, while risking healthcare operations.
A power failure or dependence on rechargeable batteries also poses a risk in areas with limited electrical infrastructure. Moreover, most of the developed world is largely electrified; however, low- and middle-income countries still struggle with providing adequate electricity in remote regions. This could cause restrictions in the penetration of medical tourism across regions, thereby hampering the growth of the market.
