The telehealth market is projected to see a compound annual growth rate of 14.9% over the period between 2019 and 2026, according to a new report from Acumen Research and Consulting. The global telehealth market is expected to be worth US$53.1 billion by the end of that period.
Factors driving the growth include an increasing number of patients suffering from chronic ailments, an increase in the geriatric population and a growing inclination toward home healthcare.

However, the lack of regulations and favourable policies in developing countries may limit the adoption of telehealth services in those markets, Acumen said.
