Industry Insights, Market Size, CAGR, High-Level Analysis: Home Healthcare Market

The global home healthcare market size was valued at USD 281.8 billion in 2019 and is expected to register a CAGR of 7.9% over the forecast period. Population aging around the world and increased patient preference for value-based healthcare are anticipated to fuel market growth. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there were 703 million persons aged 65 years or over in the world in 2019. The number of older persons is projected to double to 1.5 billion by 2050. The aging population demands more patient-centric healthcare services, which in return increases the demand for healthcare workers and agencies and is anticipated to drive market growth. The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that a growing workforce pertaining to healthcare service translates to the increasing demand for home health and personal healthcare aides and is expected to outpace the healthcare sectors growth, with more than 4 million jobs only in the home healthcare sector. Value-based healthcare is another major factor contributing to the market. In most of the developed and developing nations, the central government is offering either partial or complete coverage for the in-home services. In U.S., Medicare reimbursements are highly favorable in providing value-based healthcare for improved patient outcomes at a low cost. Thus, in-home care has become a modality of choice for treatment. In U.S., Medicare is the largest single payer of home healthcare services. Medicare spending accounts for more than 40% of home health expenditures. Medicaid payments are divided into three main categories: the traditional home health benefit (mandatory), the personal healthcare option, and home and community-based waivers as an optional program. Collectively, these three home healthcare service categories hold a small share of total Medicaid payments. In Europe, the central government offers some reimbursement benefits for this service. People are free to choose the providers and even the type of healthcare. But the central government does not completely cover the services being provided to the patients attributed to the division of home care into two parts i.e. healthcare and social care. Each part of service is covered by different financial sources and hence different rules govern eligibility, allocation, and administration.
