Home healthcare is typically affordable, accessible, and more efficient than hospital care or specialist nursing facilities (SNF). Those accessing home healthcare offered by the Home Health Agency include chronically sick and disabled people of all ages, those suffering from hospitalization or severe illness, and the terminally ill. Home health nurses may assist patients with day-to-day activities (DLs) such as bathing, toileting, and feeding or guide and supervise aids in providing ADL treatment. In addition, nurses keep records of vital signs, perform emergency orders, take blood, record their activities and the patient's health status, and interact with the patient, relatives, and psychiatrist.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global home healthcare market:

Due to COVID-19, the demand for home healthcare services has grown exponentially.

The adoption of home healthcare has grown significantly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The restrictions imposed to control the spread of coronavirus, such as travel bans and lockdowns, have created additional room for the home healthcare market to grow further. Licensed medical practitioners provide the services of home healthcare. Previously, home healthcare services were majorly limited to people who were disabled or aged. Still, considering the COVID-19 pandemic, the target audience for home healthcare services has evolved from all age groups. Many people have stopped visiting hospitals to take treatments, and the preference for home healthcare has increased. During the COVID-19 pandemic, people diagnosed with coronavirus also took advantage of home healthcare and had treatment via the home healthcare model. Likewise, COVID-19 has boosted the growth of the home healthcare market.


The rapid increase in the aging population worldwide is increasing the need for home healthcare and propelling market growth.

The need for home healthcare will be more across the aging population. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there were 703 million people over 65 years of age in 2019. The number of older people to double by 2050 to 1.5 billion. Patient-oriented medical services are equally demanding with the growing aging population, helping the home healthcare market.

The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and the growing need for cost-effective healthcare delivery due to healthcare prices further promote the global home healthcare market.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated six in ten with one chronic disease and four with more than one chronic disease are suffering in the United States. Additionally, technical developments in-home care services, governments supporting home healthcare, COVID-19 impact on cost and unavailability of hospital beds, and ambulance services are further estimated to accelerate the global home healthcare market growth. In the COVID-19 pandemic, where coronavirus patients need medical assistance, many home health professionals choose to care for patients at home.

Furthermore, the increasing cost of medical treatment in hospitals and the rise in cancer patients and kidney diseases are projected to fuel the growth rate of the global home healthcare market. The growing investments from the market participants are another factor favoring the market growth. The maintenance, development, and other medical settings associated with home healthcare require significant investments.


The scarcity of skillful nursing staff is one of the major factors hampering the home healthcare market growth. High costs associated with home healthcare are another key factor inhibiting the growth rate of the global home healthcare market. The complex tasks involved with providing home healthcare services are a significant challenge to the growth of the home healthcare market. In addition, a lack of awareness around home healthcare services among people in rural areas and the unaffordability of a considerable population to adopt home healthcare services are further impeding the home healthcare market growth. Issues associated with payment plans, patient care, and insurance rates further showcase a negative impact on the growth rate of the global home healthcare market.
