The worldwide home healthcare market is projected to expand at a CAGR nearly 8% over the forecast period (2012 to 2020). In 2015, the industry stood at nearly USD 245 billion. One of the key drivers of this market is the rapidly growing geriatric population worldwide. The elderly are most susceptible to medical disorders, such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), diabetes, and asthma among others.
The onset of such ailments triggers the need for health checkups & monitoring on a regular basis. As a result, the demand for health delivery & health monitoring services starts increasing subsequently. The growing trend of establishing clinical facilities in home settings is likely to spur industry growth in the years to come. Besides being safe & effective, home healthcare equipment are very convenient too. Seat lifts and denture cleaners are examples of technologically advanced products.
