Market Dynamics:

Growing Geriatric Population and Growing Acceptance of Home Care Services are Expected to Drive the Global Health Caregiving Market over the Forecast Period

One of the major drivers propelling the global health caregiving market growth is the rapidly growing geriatric population worldwide, especially in developed nations. As per the United Nations, the population aged 60 years and above is projected to grow from 962 million globally in 2017 to 2.1 billion by 2050. Older adults frequently require regular assistance and monitoring of health conditions that cannot be self-managed. This is increasing the demand for in-home caregiving services.

In addition, there is a rising preference for home care services over institutional care facilities amongst patients, family members, and physicians due to better patient outcomes and experiences offered. Home healthcare provides comfort of familiar home surroundings, family support, lesser costs, and preserves dignity especially for older adults. This increasing acceptance of caregiving at home rather than hospitals or nursing homes is driving the global market.

Segment Analysis

The global health caregiving market is divided into four major segments: home-based care, community-based care, institutional care and adult day care. Home-based care accounts for over 50% of the total market share and is the dominating sub-segment. Factors such as convenience, affordability and personalized care are driving the adoption of home-based care services by families. Community-based care is the fastest growing segment due to increasing preference of elderly to age within their local communities and availability of senior day care and assisted living facilities.

PEST Analysis

Political: Government policies towards increasing healthcare spending and focus on community-based and home-based care services are positively impacting the market growth. Economic: Rising healthcare costs and aging population are increasing the need for affordable caregiving services. Reforms in long-term care insurance industry are fueling investments.

Social: Changing family structures and mobility of youth population are reducing availability of informal care. Growth in aging population and loneliness among elderly is propelling the demand for formal care. Technological: Adoption of technologies like telehealth, remote patient monitoring and assistive devices are supporting independent living and empowering caregivers.
