The global healthcare market is forecast to continue expanding faster than global GDP, due to a range of fundamental drivers such as ageing populations, greater urbanisation, more sedentary lifestyles and a higher prevalence of chronic diseases.
While there will be commercial opportunities in areas such as digital health and private health insurance, numerous risks are present, including pressure on healthcare budgets, under-investment in healthcare infrastructure and shortages of healthcare professionals.
Topics covered will include:
- Forecasts for global health expenditure, number of hospitals, and number of health professionals.
- How the outlook for healthcare compares with other industries.
- Growth outlook for select digital health technologies.
- Healthcare opportunities for pharmaceutical companies and medical device firms.
- Leading healthcare market risks.
