Rising geriatric population

The home healthcare market is primarily driven by the huge geriatric population base which is highly susceptible to various diseases such as diabetes, blood pressure, sleep apnea, arthritis, and cardiovascular. As per the World Health Organization (WHO) statistics, the global base of population pertaining to the age group – 60 years and above is expected to reach 2 billion in 2050. The population aged 65 and over in the U.S., which is the largest market for home healthcare is projected to be 83.7 million in 2050, almost double its estimated population of 43.1 million in 2012. Therefore, the growing global geriatric population base coupled with the fact that approximately 70% of home health patients belong to the age group of 65 years and above, is expected to drive demand for home healthcare products and services during the forecast period.

Growing need to curtail rising healthcare costs

Another key factor driving the growth of this market is growing need to curtail rising healthcare costs. In countries like the US, the consumer price index inflation rate stood at an average of 2.04% during 2005-2015, whereas the healthcare inflation rate moved up to 3.62% during the same time period. This can be attributed to the increase in the prices of drugs, medical devices, and hospital services. These factors have led to the US population looking for more affordable healthcare solutions.

Technological innovation

Technological innovation is also transforming the home health sector. The integration of mobile devices and home health care solutions is the leading trend in the global market. For example, sensor technology now can monitor an individual’s vital signs and then wirelessly send that information to a mobile phone or table. Technological advancements and wireless communication have allowed personal devices such as mobile phones and tablets to be linked or synchronized with home healthcare solutions. This offers more freedom and flexibility, as well as the ability to monitor vital signs wirelessly on mobile devices. With rapid growth in the field of wearable technologies, the adoption of such devices at home is expected to increase in the near future.

Government initiatives to promote home healthcare

Various initiatives are being taken by governments across the globe to promote home healthcare. In this regard, the Affordable Care Act was passed by the U.S. government in 2010, which was aimed at improving the quality of care and reducing healthcare costs by providing insurance to the uninsured healthcare services and products. In Canada, organizations, such as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities Canada, offer accreditation programs to the home care service providers to improve their home care business operation and quality of patient care.

However, changing reimbursement policies, limited insurance coverage, risk to safety and health of home healthcare workers, and patient safety concerns are the factors that may hinder the growth of this market during the forecast period.

The home healthcare products market is primarily segmented into home tests and patient monitoring equipment, home therapeutic equipment, and patient support equipment.
