The global healthcare services market grew from $7,499.75 billion in 2022 to $7,975.87 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.3%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, a surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services and affecting many markets across the globe. The healthcare services market is expected to grow to $9,816.85 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 5.3%.
Survival rates and quality of life have improved tremendously over the past decade. Medical and technological advances have played an important role in their progress. High technology diagnostics and therapeutic equipment integrating doctors’ practice patterns have improved healthcare services delivery. According to a report by TrendWatch, medical advances are responsible for a 70% improvement in survival rates for heart attack patients and a two-thirds reduction in mortality rates for those suffering from cancer. These factors contribute to the potential growth of the market.
Many federal and state governments are either offering subsidized or free healthcare services to their citizens. Since most of the governments are offering quality healthcare services for free or subsidized rates, patients tend to opt for government healthcare services thereby, limiting the scope for private healthcare service providers. For example, the NHS (National Health Service) of the UK offers free healthcare services to all legal residents and visitors. Going forward, federal and state provisions are expected to be a major restraint on the healthcare services market.
The shared medical appointments (SMA) model is being increasingly adopted globally to optimize resources and reduce costs. This is a model generally defined as multiple patients being seen as a group by a multi-disciplinary medical care team for follow-up or routine care. It is being adopted by hospitals to create awareness and counsel individual patients dealing with similar medical conditions. The SMA supplements the traditional physician-patient appointment. SMAs provide individual evaluation and disease management for each patient at the same time that they provide counseling to the patient within a group setting. SMAs are currently used to address diabetes, asthma, ulcerative colitis, MS, cancer, HIV, menopause, insomnia and stress.
