Take care: High costs and budgetary concerns will limit industry growth
Day Care in the US
Although the Day Care industry grew rapidly in the 1990s, growth slowed in light of the economic downturn as costs exceeded what many families can bear. While high costs generated high profit margins for operators, tight state budgets combined with slow disposable income growth limited demand for industry services during the first half of the current five-year period. More recently, as per capita disposable income and government funding have been on the rise, the industry has once more returned to more rapid growth. Low accessibility to day care centers and preschools has prompted renewed attention to the subject, with the White House and Department of Education proposing new ways to expand funding to make day care services accessible to all US households. While revenue growth over the next five years will be limited by high day care costs, higher disposable income is expected to drive demand for center-based day care.
Industry operators provide day care services for children, primarily those under the age of five. Industry operators may also run preschool programs that prepare three and four year olds for kindergarten. However, kindergarten education is excluded from industry services, as are in-home nanny services.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
