The global telemedicine market has grown significantly, reaching a size of around $72 billion in 2022. The forecast compound annual growth rate (CAGR) is 12.9% between 2023 and 2032, and the market is expected to reach $242.2 billion by the end of this period. This growth is mainly due to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, an aging population requiring patient management, and the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has stimulated the adoption of telemedicine. The teleconsultation segment is particularly important, accounting for 41% of the market in 2022, reflecting increased demand for home monitoring services.

Geographically, North America holds more than half of the global market share, with the US industry expected to maintain a CAGR of 12.5% between 2023 and 2032. Similarly, the European market is expected to reach over $66 billion by 2032. Key players influencing the market include Allscripts Healthcare Solutions Inc, AMD Global Telemedicine and American Well. Telemedicine use varies considerably from country to country, with some regions, such as Saudi Arabia, China and India, showing relatively higher adoption rates.

Telemedicine: a dynamic force in healthcare innovation in France

The French telemedicine market is changing rapidly, reflecting global trends as demand for remote medical services continues to grow. One of the main drivers of this growth is the aging of the population, coupled with an increase in chronic illnesses requiring constant medical monitoring. The COVID-19 pandemic played a crucial role, propelling the number of teleconsultations from around 400,000 a year before the pandemic to over a million a week at the height of the health crisis. Between January and October 2020, the frequency of teleconsultations tripled for patients and quintupled for healthcare professionals. This rapid adoption demonstrates the potential of telemedicine not only to meet immediate challenges, but also to modernize the French healthcare system in the long term.

The French population is becoming increasingly familiar with telemedicine, with the proportion of those who have a good opinion of it rising from around 60% to over 70% in the space of a year. Furthermore, most French people are familiar with the terms "telemedicine" and "teleconsultation", with familiarity rates of between 80% and 90%. On the other hand, awareness of tele-expertise and remote medical monitoring is lower, with awareness rates of between 50% and 65%. The French public perceives telemedicine favorably, praising the efficiency it offers in saving doctors' time, while expressing concerns about the potential dehumanization of the doctor-patient relationship.

Despite these concerns, telemedicine is widely seen as a way of reconnecting with patients in medically underserved areas and saving them time by providing access to healthcare at a distance. By the end of 2021, telemedicine solutions adopted by the majority of healthcare hubs will cover teleconsultation and tele-expertise, reflecting their essential role in the delivery of healthcare services.

The French telemedicine market, which was part of the wider e-health market valued at around around 3 billion euros, has certainly evolved, with telemedicine alone accounting for around 5.2%, or some 155 - 160 million euros. Given recent trends and the scale of fundraising in the e-health sector, these figures would have risen considerably.

In conclusion, the telemedicine landscape in France is being reshaped by multiple factors such as technological advances, changing patient needs and the French government's commitment to digitizing healthcare. Ongoing expansion augurs continued market growth, driven by innovation, public demand and strong support from national healthcare policy.

Summary and extracts

1 Market overview

1.1 Definition and scope of the study

Telemedicine is a sub-area of e-health, which encompasses innovations in the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) for healthcare activities.

In France, since 2009, telemedicine has been regulated, and the Public Health Code defines 5 types of medical acts covered by telemedicine [Article L6316-1 Legifrance]:

  • Teleconsultation: enabling a medical professional to consult a patient remotely;
  • tele-expertise: which enables a medical professional to seek the opinion of other medical experts on the basis of elements in a patient's medical file;
  • remote medical monitoring: enabling a healthcare professional to make decisions about patient care;
  • medical remote assistance: enabling a medical professional to provide remote assistance to another professional during the performance of a procedure,
  • telemedicine also includes medical response to calls made to the SAMU (emergency medical service) or the Centres 15 (emergency call centers).

This study covers all these medical acts, and shows how telemedicine can be a solution to medical deserts and the current situation where healthcare expenditure is growing faster than GDP.

E-health encompasses innovations in the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) for health-related activities. Sales in France were estimated at 3 billion euros in 2016 . At the time, telemedicine sales accounted for 5.2% of the e-health market, or 156 million euros. [BPI]

It has not been updated to 2022, but has undoubtedly evolved since 2016. Indeed, between 2016 and 2022, 250 fundraisings took place in the e-health sector, with a total value over this period of 3 billion euros. The year 2022 also saw significant fundraising, with a total value of over 1 billion euros. In 2025, they are expected to raise over 1.2 billion euros, an increase of 14% on 2022. [Mind Health]

The global telemedicine market is also growing rapidly. It is valued at $72 billion in2022and isexpected to grow at a CAGR of 12.9%over theperiod 2023-2032, reaching$242.2 is dominated by North America, which holds more than half of the market share. [Global Market Insights]

Market growth is being driven by both the prevalence of chronic diseases and an ageing population.

In France, between January and October 2020, the number of teleconsultations increased by a factor of 3 for patients and by a factor of 5 for healthcare professionals. [Agence du numérique en santé]. Among the 31 OECD members who took part in a telemedicine survey in 2021, 23 countries out of 31 authorize the use of telemedicine services.telemedicine services, 6 more than before the pandemic (Estonia, Germany, Iceland, Luxembourg, Portugal and the United States). [OECD]
