DUBLIN, Nov. 09, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global BioMEMS and Microsystem Market in Healthcare 2015-2019" report to their offering.

The global BioMEMS and microsystems market in the healthcare sector to grow at a CAGR of 25.1% over the period 2014-2019.

BioMEMS assimilate miniature sensors, actuators, micro-optics, microfluidics, and structural elements with computation and controls for application in the healthcare sector. Microsystems are used in the healthcare sector for numerous applications. These devices improve the performance of medical devices by providing a competitive advantage to medical device manufacturers. For instance, the use of accelerometers has improved the treatment of cardiac diseases. Another instance being the use of MEMS and nanotechnology to improve drug delivery. The report includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

BioMEMS can be implanted into a specific region of the body for localized drug therapy. Once a drug is released into the body, the delivery system takes control of the dosage requirements, thus maximizing the effect of the drug and reducing the possibilities of side-effects. BioMEMS systems have sensors, which monitor the drug release profile and efficiency of the drug administered through specific marker molecules. Any regression of the disease being treated can be identified using these markers.

According to the report, rising healthcare costs have necessitated the increase in demand for health monitoring equipment, which are a cheaper alternative to traditional routine check-ups. Sensors can be installed around homes to keep track of daily activities, and any unusual change in activities is reported. Such sensors are also installed, albeit for a shorter period, to monitor sick patients. It provides accurate and reliable data, which helps in health evaluation. This technology can be highly beneficial for the aging population as they can undergo regular checkups and assistance can be provided in a timely manner.

Further, the report states that lack of awareness about BioMEMS is affecting the growth of the market.
