Moreover, by enforcement of this law, the government has given more priority to home healthcare as compared to institutional care, which is expected to drive the growth of the Netherland home healthcare market during the forecast period.

According to budget plans announced by the government in 2019, the government is expected to invest an estimated US$ 1,350.4 Mn on personal and elderly care during 2019.

Such factors add boost to the Netherland home healthcare market growth and are expected to continue doing so in the forecast period.
