Key Trends in Global Healthcare Industry

Aging Population
The steadily increasing aged population in developed countries will directly affect the increase in healthcare utilization. The incidence of non-communicable diseases increases with age; moreover, these life style diseases requires life-long medications. Expensive treatments such as cancer therapies will be more frequent because the cancer risk increases with age. This increased burden of healthcare costs has made governments across the world, especially in the developed countries, to go for reforms in legislation to contain healthcare costs.

Growing Power of Middle Class
The growth of middle class and the purchasing power of this class in emerging economies will have a great affect on the healthcare industry. The global investors are seeing the emerging economies as opportunities for real growth drivers for both innovation and sales. The increase in purchasing power of middle class will increase the demand for quality healthcare. As the public healthcare system is far behind private providers in terms of quality, the share of private sector spending on healthcare is higher than the public sector counterpart in most of these emerging countries. This is a great boon for investors looking for avenues with greater patient demand.

Consumerism in Healthcare
The increasing awareness among patients, along with increasing power of payers, has set in motion the trend of consumerism among the patients receiving healthcare. Though this trend has been aggressive in the developed economies, the developing economies are not far behind. The regulators are making reforms to make the healthcare industry more transparent to appease the new consumers who demand more quality in the care. Moreover, the providers are increasingly taking measures to promote and make themselves more appealing to consumer class of patients.
