Healthcare IT Market in Turkey 2015-2019
About healthcare IT market in Turkey
Turkey is exhibiting a healthy economy, driven by government incentive programs and initiatives supporting public-private partnerships. These programs and initiatives have been key in sustaining growth in Turkey and supporting a better economic environment compared to the rest of the EU. Turkey's GDP expanded by 2.9% in 2014, slightly lower than the government's goal of 3.3%.
Though the country's economy has shown better growth compared to other market competitors and developed economies such as the US and Japan, it has been affected negatively by the conflicts in Iraq and Syria and the fall in export demand from the EU.
This is expected to create opportunities in the Turkish healthcare industry for technology vendors that can show their capabilities for reducing OPEX for healthcare institutions and healthcare providers with the help of IT solutions. In addition, the growing aging population in Turkey also fuels the need for better healthcare expansion plans in order to meet future requirements. Of Turkey's current population, less than 10% are over 65 years old, and the country ranked 91st in the 2012 global ranking of countries with the highest proportion of elderly citizens. As aging is directly associated with the increased incidence of chronic diseases, healthcare services will soon be high in demand. IT is thus expected to become a priority area of investment for the healthcare industry in Turkey.
Technavio's analysts forecast the healthcare IT market in Turkey to grow at a CAGR of 10.18% during 2014-2019.
