With age come a variety of mobility issues. As the world's graying population base expands dramatically, there is a pressing need for healthcare services and specialists to reach out to these aged individuals rather than the other way round. This factor will lead to an unprecedented interest in the deployment of video telemedicine solutions, especially in countries where the majority of the population is already connected to the internet. In both developed and underserved regions of the world, governments have realized the many benefits of video telemedicine consultations, creating a smoother path for the growth for the global video telemedicine market.
The key restraints that will stand in the way of the market's growth, however, are: Reluctance to adopt new technologies, a dearth of skilled staff to enable the seamless deployment of video telemedicine, and the underdeveloped network infrastructure in many regions of the world. Companies in the telemedicine market can find a way around these problems by introducing integrated telemedicine solutions that are easy to use and cost less than the existing options. With the aim to drill down to the second and third level of the global video telemedicine market, the report segments the market by communication technology into: 3G (GSM, CDMA, Others), Satellite Communications, 4G (LTE, WiMax & Others), Broadband Integrated Services Digital Network (B-ISDN), and Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL).

While video telemedicine was most widely used for gynecology-related consultation in 2013, the use of neurology and psychiatry segment will see patients and doctors heavily relying on video telemedicine in the coming years.
