"Increasing geriatric population and high prevalence of incontinence, ostomy, and diabetic foot ulcer among them are likely to drive U.K. home healthcare market growth during the forecast period"

A rapidly aging population with more than 65 years of age prone to chronic illness such as diabetes, hypertension, Alzheimer's, mental illness, incontinence etc. are likely to boost the demand for easy to access and cost-effective home healthcare systems. According to provisional figures published by the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) the U.K., on January 1, 2019, an estimated 3.31 million population in U.K. was above 65 years old, which accounted for an estimated 19.4% of the total population of U.K.

According to the statistics published, by 2023, the share of the elderly population will reach to an estimated 23.0% as compared to 19.4% in 2019. This offers an ample opportunity for the U.K. home healthcare products growth by 2026 since the adoption of home healthcare products is higher by the elderly population.

Moreover, technological advancements in the home healthcare devices have helped to increase the level of care of the dependent elderly population and patients taking treatment for chronic diseases at home healthcare facilities. Various advantages provided by the healthcare technologies like empowerment of patients by making them less dependent on healthcare professionals, improved quality of the care, close monitoring of healthcare parameters, ease of access, and reduced cost of care as compared to institutional care are likely to increase the U.K. home healthcare market revenue during the forecast period.

Crises in social care, the introduction of new value-based payment and care models, and growing adoption of advanced home healthcare technologies leverages lucrative opportunity to invest in home healthcare industry in U.K. However, those opportunities are likely to be tempered by increased oversight by government and insurance regulators, industry accreditation groups, and independent standards organizations.

"Home Healthcare Equipments & Housekeeping Supplies Segment Dominated the U.K. Home Healthcare Market with Lion’s Share in the year 2018"

U.K. home healthcare industry segments by-product includes continence care, wound care, ostomy care, clinical nutrition, respiratory care, types of equipment & housekeeping supplies, and others. Among them, the equipment & housekeeping supplies segment held a significant market share of 53.9% in the year 2018. The segment is likely to continue its dominance throughout the forecast period.

This is attributable to redesigning the medical devices already being used for institutional care by the manufacturers to fulfil the need of home healthcare facilities. The high cost of this equipment, growing adoption of advanced home healthcare technologies among the population of U.K, and growing elderly population are poised to propel the growth of the overall home healthcare market during the forecast period leveraging lucrative opportunities for the manufacturers.

The home healthcare equipment segment includes a wide range of medical devices intended to be used in the home or another non-medical facility by professional/non-professional caregivers, family members, or patients themselves. Some of the common examples of home healthcare equipment include nebulizers, breast pumps, and artificial limbs, prosthetic devices, wheelchairs, and walkers and seat lifts, etc.

Followed by equipment, the continence care segment accounted for the second-largest U.K. home healthcare market share owing to large population base suffering from urinary or fecal incontinence issues. For instance, as per the NHS estimates, between 3 and 6 million people in the U.K. have some degree of urinary incontinence. Moreover, studies suggest that in the UK "major fecal incontinence" affects 1.4% of the general population over 40 years old. All these factors are likely to rise the home healthcare devices' demands.
