Global Hospital Market stood at USD4207.46 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.70% during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the growing geriatric population suffering from various chronic diseases including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, renal disorders, among others. This in turn has increased the patient pool requiring treatment. Additionally, increasing healthcare expenditures by different governments across the globe coupled with the penetration of large hospital chains is expected to foster the market growth over the next few years. Furthermore, increasing awareness and advancements pertaining to diagnostic technologies are expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market growth through 2026.

Global hospital market has been segmented based on ownership, type, type of services, bed capacity, region, and company. Based on ownership, global hospital market is categorized into public and private. The private hospitals segment is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period owing to the growing privatization across the hospital industry especially in the United States and United Kingdom. Also, private hospitals offer better patient care facilities and personalized treatment thereby driving the segmental growth.

The outpatient services segment is expected to witness a growth of 7.55% during the forecast period. Outpatient services include medical procedures, tests, services, among others which can be provided to the patient and does not involve an overnight hospital stay. Additionally, shorter patient stay, and high costs incurred with inpatient services are further expected to fuel the growth of outpatient services segment. Besides, growing adoption of minimally invasive surgical procedures and advancements in surgical equipment and devices are further supporting the growth of outpatient services segment.
