Frost & Sullivan Reveals 2019 Top Growth Opportunities in Healthcare by Region and Key Sectors

February 7, 2019

By the end of 2019, up to 15 percent of the global healthcare spending is expected to be directed towardvalue-based care concepts. This will cause a surge in the number of risk-sharing contracts between providers and drug/device original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), driving business value for providers. While developed countries will adopt the more sophisticated outcome-based models, emerging markets will employ the best practices most suited to their local needs. Digital health technologies enabling out-of-hospital care and monitoring are forecast to grow by 30 percent to cross the $25 billion mark. As the lines between retail, IT and healthcare industries continue to blur, digital marketplace providers such as Amazon and Ali Health will make further headway in the home health space.

"In this highly digitized environment, artificial intelligence (AI) will permeate the life sciences ecosystem and its use in healthcare IT (HIT) is likely to cross $1.7 billion by the end of 2019. AI-powered IT tools that manage payers’ and providers’ business risks in clinical, operational, financial, and regulatory settings will especially find high uptake,” said Kamaljit Behera, Industry Analyst, Transformational Health. "Blockchain in healthcare is slowly starting to migrate from pilot proof of concept (PoC) to early commercial implementations. Companies such as Change Healthcare and Hashed Health will be frontrunners demonstrating initial ROIs across enterprise-level, B2B-focused initiatives such as health professional credentialing, medical billing management, and contract adjudication."

Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, Global Healthcare Market Outlook, 2019, presents perspectives and forecasts for the pharmaceuticals and biotech, in-vitro diagnostics, medical technologies, medical imaging, and HIT sectors. The analysis also captures regional trends and identifies areas of opportunities.
