U.S. to Witness the Fastest Growth in the Healthcare Industry
The healthcare industry in the U.S. is expected to witness fastest growth, progressing at a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period.
The industry growth in the U.S. can be largely attributed to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases. According to the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion 2019, about six in 10 adults in the U.S. have a chronic disease. The country ranks 5th in the world for age-standardized rates for all cancer. In 2018, the age-standardized rate for all cancer was 352.2 per 100,000 in the U.S. This rising prevalence of cancer is expected to spur the demand for advanced diagnostic imaging systems, to determine the prognosis of the disease for appropriate treatment; thus, contributing to the growth of the industry in the country.
Other key factors driving the growth of the market are increasing use of point-of-care (POC) diagnostics solutions, and introduction of advanced technologies in the country. Rise in the adoption of healthcare insurance also leads to the greater adoption of healthcare facilities, as it lowers the financial burden on patients. According to the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations, in 2014, out of 283.2 million people in the U.S had some type of health insurance, with 66% of people covered by a private health insurance plan.
Further, rise in the geriatric population has significantly contributed to the healthcare industry in the country, as age is directly linked to the risk of developing chronic diseases, such as CVDs, cancer, and type 2 diabetes. According to the World Bank, in the U.S., population aged 65 years and above increased from 48.6 million in 2016 to 50.2 million in 2017; thus, increasing the demand for healthcare facilities in the country.
