When service is taken into consideration, the telemedicine market is divided into tele monitoring, tele training, tele consulting, tele education, and others. Out of these, the tele consulting division held the largest share in the market during the historical period, and is predicted to hold its position during the forecast period. The tele monitoring division is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to the rising need for monitoring patients located in remote areas and the increasing prevalence of chronic and lifestyle-associated diseases.
