The market is growing at a tremendous pace, owing to growth in insurance coverage. The increasing number of patients has led to a growth in demand for the number of hospitals in emerging countries. This factor is likely to boost the healthcare facilities management market during forecast period. In addition, growth in patient pool, increase in medical tourism in emerging countries, and technological advancement in facilities management are also fuelling the healthcare facilities management market.
Gap between Providers and Payers
The wide gap between healthcare payers and management services providers, in terms of operation and availability of advanced healthcare facilities, and the high cost involved in the setup of streamline systems, coupled with the lack of technical expertise, and sufficient knowledge base, are likely to impede the growth of healthcare facilities management market in mid-tier and low tier hospitals.
