Telemedicine was extensively used during the COVID-19 pandemic as it aids in decreasing the contact with healthcare facilities, healthcare staff, and patients, to minimize the risk of COVID-19. In China, online mental health surveys along with communication programs, such as Weibo, TikTok, and WeChat, among others, assisted health authorities and mental health professionals to render mental health services safely and online during the pandemic. Such factors have assisted in market growth during the COVID-19 pandemic. SOC Telemed, a U.S.-based company dealing in telemedicine technology and services, stated in March 2020, that it experienced a surge in demand for on-demand acute care via telemedicine.


Companies in the market have experienced exponential growth during the COVID-19 pandemic as compared to the previous year. For instance, Teladoc Health, Inc. experienced a 109% year-on-year growth from Quarter 3 of 2019 to Quarter 3 of 2020. American Well Corp., another key player in the market, reported that its clients comprising health system and health plan providers deployed tens of thousands of their own care providers onto their platforms during 2020. Around 68,000 active providers had used the Amwell Platform to provide primary care, chronic care management, and specialist visits by December 2020.

American Well Corporation attributed around 76.5 million increase in revenue during 2020 due to the pandemic-induced growth in online visit volume. The pandemic has thus positively affected the overall market. Increasing access to basic healthcare along with improved healthcare quality and patient safety is the major aim of telemedicine solutions. According to a report published by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the implementation of telehealth or telemedicine solutions improves care delivery to patients. Applications, such as e-ICU and eCare, help in providing apt care and reduce adverse effects or symptoms from going unnoticed. 

By providing higher safety and quality standards to patients, the demand for such systems is expected to increase over the forecast period and boost the market growth. Moreover, telemedicine is considered the most versatile technology available to deliver health education, health information, and health care at a distance. Through the technologies, advanced patient-centered care and increased access to remote locations are possible. It also helps in reducing emergency room visits and hospitalization rates, thereby augmenting the market growth. Continued investment in new technologies to expand the capabilities of telemedicine products and services is another key factor anticipated to propel market growth in the near future.

The industry is also witnessing an increased flow of investments, mergers & acquisitions, and entry of new and large-scale companies. This is expected to intensify the competition in the coming years. For instance, in March 2021,, Inc. expanded the access to its virtual visits and telehealth platform- Amazon Care, to serve other Washington-based companies. Until then, Amazon Care was available only to the company’s employees and their families in Washington State. The company further plans to expand its virtual care product and services to its employees and other companies in all 50 states across the U.S. Technological advancements in robotic surgery, Virtual Reality (VR), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are anticipated to boost the application scope of telemedicine in areas, such as telesurgery.
