Continuing Medical Education Market – Trends and Opportunities
Adoption of modern technologies such as mobile phones and apps is higher among younger workers than among older physicians participating in the CME program. Smartphone apps provide interactive learning and constant connection using question-and-answer sections. Interactive methods have been proposed as a tool for use in CME by many CME vendors. The vendors maintain their CME libraries which are published digitally using online and mobile platforms thereby accelerating the growth of the CME market. Many large CME training providers are offering newer, shorter courses that are more interactive, engaging, and entertaining for physicians as well. Additionally, governments are working on various guidelines to provide safer CME classes without the influence of pharmaceutical and medical device companies in the market. Suppliers are supposed to create innovation to stay abreast of the competition in the CME market. Considering the opportunities in the Japanese market, many players are focusing on strengthening their presence in the country. For example, in February 2021, the Japanese company Olympus Corporation has launched a new comprehensive educational platform, namely, Olympus Continuum, to empower healthcare professionals at every stage of their career with innovative and premium education and specialized training experiences.

Continuing Medical Education Market – Geography
North America dominated the global market and is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. In 2020, the United States accounted for 92.45% of the North American CME market. Medicare is one of the largest insurance providers in the United States. This has given rise to the demand for CME programs, which have helped physicians continuously update their skills and provide better treatments in the North American region. In the United States, ACCME accrediting bodies offer CME credits to physicians. These have increased the demand for CME programs among physicians nationwide. The COVID-19 outbreak has made face-to-face events largely non-existent, increasing the need for more digital and mobile options for CME across North America.
