London, UK (PRWEB) April 13, 2012
The worldwide home healthcare market is in its growth phase, with a projected CAGR of 7.7% from 2011 to 2016, but can be considered significantly established in the developed regions of the world which account for the majority share of 80%. The developing nations like the Asia-Pacific and ROW account for the rest 20%, but show a strong growth potential mainly due to the large untapped patient base. The Americas also maintain a stable growth, and commanded the largest share of 52.1% in 2011 of the global home healthcare market.
The global aging population is set to increase to 973 million by 2030, with Japan and South Korea being the world's fastest aging countries. Another factor contributing to the growth of the home healthcare market is that an increasing number of countries are experiencing the shift termed "epidemiological transition". The demand for home healthcare is increasing because of the high incidence and prevalence of the chronic disease conditions.
