Analyst Opinion

The Digital Health market in Kenya is experiencing significant growth and evolution, driven by various factors shaping the healthcare landscape in the country.

Customer preferences:
Consumers in Kenya are increasingly seeking convenient and accessible healthcare solutions, leading to a growing demand for digital health services. The convenience of accessing fitness programs, online doctor consultations, and digital treatment options from the comfort of their homes is appealing to many tech-savvy individuals in the country.

Trends in the market:
One prominent trend in the Kenyan Digital Health market is the rise of mobile health applications that cater to diverse health needs. These apps offer personalized fitness plans, symptom checkers, and medication reminders, making it easier for users to manage their health effectively. Additionally, the popularity of online doctor consultations is on the rise, especially in rural areas where access to healthcare facilities is limited.

Local special circumstances:
Kenya's digital health market is uniquely positioned for growth due to its increasing internet penetration and smartphone adoption rates. The country has a tech-savvy population that is quick to adopt digital solutions, making it conducive for the expansion of digital health services. Furthermore, the government's push for universal healthcare coverage is driving the adoption of digital health technologies to improve healthcare access and affordability for all Kenyan citizens.

Underlying macroeconomic factors:
The growing middle-class population in Kenya, coupled with rising disposable incomes, is fueling the demand for quality healthcare services. As more Kenyans prioritize their health and well-being, the digital health market is poised to expand further. Additionally, the government's investments in healthcare infrastructure and technology are creating a supportive environment for digital health companies to innovate and grow in the country.


Data coverage:

The data encompasses B2C enterprises. Figures are based on revenues and user data of relevant mobile applications and consumer electronics companies.

Modeling approach / Market size:

Market sizes are determined through a combined top-down and bottom-up approach, building on a specific rationale for each market segment. As a basis for evaluating markets, we use annual financial reports of key players, industry reports, third-party reports, and survey results from primary research (e.g., the Statista Global Consumer Survey). In addition, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific associations, such as GDP, population, internet penetration, smartphone penetration, consumer spending, and healthcare spending. This data helps us estimate the market size for each country individually.


In our forecasts, we apply diverse forecasting techniques. The selection of forecasting techniques is based on the behavior of the relevant market. For example, the S-curve function and exponential trend smoothing are well suited for forecasting digital products and services due to the non-linear growth of technology adoption.

Additional notes:

The market is updated twice a year in case market dynamics change. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war is considered at a country-specific level.
