Primary Care Doctors in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Primary Care Doctors in the US

Primary care doctors often serve as the first point of contact for individuals seeking healthcare, which has contributed to strong demand over the five years to 2018. The burden of chronic illnesses, which are disproportionately prevalent in older adults, has risen significantly due demographic shifts brought on by the aging of the baby-boomer population. According to IBISWorld estimates, the number of individuals aged 65 and older has grown over the five years to 2018, thereby boosting industry revenue. Current trends are expected to accelerate over the five years to 2023 as an aging population drives demand for primary care doctors.
