However, in developing countries, the market is fragmented owing to presence of various companies operating in the market as a result of low barriers to entry.

The industry is booming with major players expanding their global footprint and investing in growth markets such as India, China and Germany.

Across all countries, the demand for home healthcare is highest amongst the elderly and middle aged population, followed by mother and infant segment due to rising caesarean and premature deliveries with complex care needs.

Between 2015 and 2050, the proportion of the world’s population over 60 years will nearly double from 12% to 22% and 80% of all older people will live in low- and middle-income countries.

Most of global home healthcare leading players are based out of the U.S. and UK. However, , there are a lot of consolidation activities taking place regionally specifically in the developing markets. One of the recent such transaction was the acquisition of Almost Family by LHC leading to a jump in its current year revenues by USD 800 million. Companies such as Healthcare at Home, Bayada, Right at Home and Home Instead Senior Care are actively looking for expansion opportunities overseas, including countries such as India, China and Germany. Kindred Healthcare, one of the leading players in the US is set to separate its home health, hospice and community care businesses resulting into a standalone company, owned 40% by Humana, whereas Bayada converted its business into a not-profit one in order to prevent any future takeover.

Comprehensive regulations related to home healthcare still have a long way to go in countries such as India, UAE and South Africa, whereas China has already initiated some reforms for industry growth. Government focus in other countries is largely on elderly care, and therefore other segments are highly dependent on private financing and insurance.
