Over the five years to 2018, the Occupational Therapists industry has benefited from growing demand for industry services and an increase in financial accessibility for patients due to disposable income growth and several beneficial healthcare policies. Furthermore, demand for habilitative occupational therapy (OT) services has grown, particularly as a result of an aging population and the increasing prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASDs). In addition, OT is a popular treatment strategy used during the rehabilitative process following a serious injury or major surgery. As a result of these trends, industry revenue has increased during the current period. Over the five years to 2023, industry revenue is expected to continue growing, albeit at a slower rate. This anticipated growth can be attributed to repealed Medicare outpatient therapy caps and the increasing development of an evidence-based practice.
This industry includes independent health practitioners who help individuals with physical, mental or developmental conditions with daily living and working through everyday activities (occupations).
