Gynecologists & Obstetricians
While many healthcare industries have experienced strong growth over the past five years, the Gynecologists and Obstetricians industry has grown at a more muted pace. While demand for most healthcare services is based mainly on access to health insurance, obstetrician-gynecologist (OB-GYN) services have such a necessary place in women's health that demand is steady for this industry. However, the industry has experienced a slight boost from healthcare expansion over the past five years. One particular trend that has supported the industry is the slowing birth rate. Over the past five years, many women and couples have opted to put off having children due to financial uncertainty as well as a cultural shift toward later pregnancy. While the total number of births has increased over the past five years, this is mainly due to population growth. Industry revenue is expected to rise at a slower pace over the five years to 2024, mainly due to a forecast slowdown in the birth rate. While the number of people with private health insurance is projected to stagnate due to changes in healthcare legislation, this trend is likely to be outweighed by demand for preventative health services.
Gynecologists are surgeons and medical doctors who specialize in diseases relating to the female reproductive system. These doctors manage diseases of the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries and cervix.
