Speech-Language Pathologists in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Speech-Language Pathologists

The Speech-Language Pathologists industry has experienced steady growth over the past five years, driven in part by favorable demographic changes. Increases in school enrollment and growth of the elderly population have boosted demand for industry services, as these two segments are particularly prone to conditions requiring treatment by speech pathologists. Moreover, the expansion of both private and government health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act has better enabled consumers to afford industry services. However, potential cuts in federal reimbursements to speech-language pathologists have the potential to reduce industry profitability. Nevertheless, the industry is expected to experience continued revenue growth in the five years to 2020.

This industry comprises establishments of health practitioners that primarily evaluate, diagnose and treat speech, language, cognitive-communication and swallowing disorders.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
