New report for Market for Home Care Products by Kalorama Information
05 Jan 2012 • by Natalie Aster
In the U.S. an estimated 18 million people receive some kind of home health care from either professional or unpaid caregivers, and most of these individuals require home care products. This demand has not escaped the notice of makers of wheelchairs, home therapy products, monitors, and other devices, many of which are available on an over-the-counter basis, although some require prescriptions.
According to the report “Market for Home Care Products, 6th Edition” by Kalorama Information, a new competitive bidding process implemented by the CMS, will significantly limit growth in many segments of the home care products market in the coming years.

Despite several factors that would normally lead to strong growth, healthcare market indicates only a modest increase of 2.2% annually between 2009 and 2014, down from 4.1% between 2006 and 2009.
These factors include the aging population, as seniors constitute a large majority of home care customers, and ongoing efforts to move chronic care patients from expensive institutional care to relatively less costly home care. In 2009, an estimated 18 million people received home health care from either professional or unpaid caregivers, and most of them also used associated home care products.
