’In 2023, the health-tech landscape witnessed a transformative shift, with a remarkable 16.7% growth from 2019 to 2020, projecting a year-on-year surge between 20.5% and 31.6% over the next five years. The dynamic response to the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the integration of innovative med tech trends, notably the widespread adoption of virtual care solutions and home-based services like Home Sample Collection and Online Doctor Consultation.
Online or Telehealthcare emerged as the frontrunner, commanding a substantial 52.2% revenue share in 2022 and 2023, poised for a remarkable 23.5% growth in the foreseeable future.
A standout feature of 2023 was the dominance of AI-powered virtual assistants. In response to the escalating healthcare demands stemming from rising Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), the development and integration of AI-powered virtual assistants experienced a twofold increase. AI and Machine Learning took center stage, playing pivotal roles in diagnosing, monitoring, and predicting health risks, supporting comparative studies, and expanding into various realms to streamline healthcare processes.
These cutting-edge technologies empower clinicians to comprehensively monitor patients’ health, tracking aspects such as dietary habits, sleep patterns, and weight. Smart reports offer personalized insights into medical history, facilitating tailored treatment plans and, ultimately, the delivery of individualized care aligned with patients’ preferences.
While the tech dominance in healthcare is undeniable, its efficacy lies in judicious usage, proving to be an invaluable asset for clinicians and healthcare professionals alike.’’

Entrepreneurs navigating this evolving terrain must be flexible, finding a balance between creative vision and practical execution.
Success in this environment lies in embracing technological progress, integrating AI and blockchain, prioritizing sustainability and social impact.

In my observation, the most significant game-changer in the Indian fintech industry in 2023 has been the proactive role taken by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in providing a structured regulatory framework to shape the sector’s trajectory. The regulator’s intervention has brought about pivotal changes that are aimed at driving innovation and propelling the industry towards sustained long-term growth.
One of the noteworthy initiatives by the RBI has been the announcement to increase risk weights for unsecured loans. This strategic move not only reflects a positive industry outlook but also sets the stage for a sustained and healthier ecosystem within the unsecured lending sector. By implementing measures that address unwarranted risk in lending practices, the RBI is fostering an environment conducive to the long-term health and stability of the fintech sector.
The approval of the default loss guarantee (DLG) in the digital lending space is a crucial development. This safety-net arrangement, involving collaboration among banks, non-banking finance companies, and fintech players, demonstrates a commitment to facilitate a robust and secure digital lending environment. Such initiatives not only enhance the credibility of the fintech sector but also inspire confidence among stakeholders, paving the way for increased activity and growth. The Reserve Bank of India also launched a pilot for “Public Tech Platform for Frictionless Credit” to create easy access to digital information for lenders which intends to expedite access to credit or loans. The guidelines on digital lending, debt collections and many such areas have provided much-needed clarity on standard operating norms and the way forward for the industry.
In addition, the RBI’s norms to regulate fintechs in the cross-border payments space is a significant stride towards regulatory clarity. By providing a clear regulatory framework, the RBI is not only ensuring compliance but also instilling confidence in investors and other stakeholders. This move is anticipated to attract more investment in the coming years, facilitating the expansion of fintech firms and setting the stage for sustained growth.
The government’s progressive and supportive stance, as exemplified by the RBI’s initiatives, will go a long way in the evolution of the Indian fintech industry. The regulatory measures address immediate challenges and lay the foundation for a thriving fintech ecosystem characterized by stability, transparency, and long-term sustainability.
