India care services market size, by type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

Increasing awareness and growing disposable income have enabled geriatric individuals to purchase homes in senior living societies with various types of care services. The government of India is also playing a major role in promoting care services in India. The National Health Policy 2017 targets 2.5% of the GDP for healthcare expenditure to encourage the development of healthcare services in India. Such initiatives are expected to provide considerable opportunities for care services in India. In September 2021, the Government of India launched a national digital health mission to promote the use of electronic medical records for home healthcare, nursing home homes, and hospice, among others.

The use of remote patient monitoring technologies-such as home infusion pumps, home oxygen, heart rate monitoring devices, and glucose monitoring devices, among others-is making home healthcare valuable. The Guardian Connect System, by Medtronic, is the first smart glucose monitoring system in India. The trend of using artificial intelligence for healthcare is growing in India. Artificial intelligence is improving the quality of services at homes, nursing homes, hospices, etc.

COVID-19 India Care Services Market Impact: 12.3% growth from 2020 to 2021

Pandemic Impact

Post COVID Outlook

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in reduced occupancy at the care services facility in India due to the fear of infection & restrictions on new admission. The pandemic also worsened the staffing crisis in India, with very low availability of nurses & physicians at care service facilities compared to the demand.

Improving government initiatives for elderly care, post the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, in June 2021, the Department of Social Justice launched a SAGE (Seniorcare Aging Growth Engine) project for investing in start-ups providing elderly care. Around USD 3.2 million were allocated for this project in 2021.

The COVID-19 pandemic also led to improvement in insurance coverage for in-home care services. Private insurance carriers have expanded reimbursement coverage for in-home treatment. For instance, ICICI Lombard General Insurance added certain COVID-19 treatment-related benefits, including in-home care, in June 2020.

Post pandemic, post-acute care services segment is expected to witness higher demand. The high cost of inpatient care, risk of infections due to reduced immunity post-surgery, and high rate of improvement at home are leading to patients opting for care at home in the country.


The scope for care services in India is expanding with the expansion of top service providers across India. The key players in the market are expanding the areas of services. For instance, HealthCare at Home received an equity investment from Quadria Capital, a private equity firm that focuses on the healthcare sector. The company has served over 400,000 patients and is present in over 40 Indian cities.

Type Insights

Based on types, the care services market in India is segmented into skilled nursing facility, hospice & palliative care, assisted living facility, and post-acute care. The post-acute care segment held the largest market share of 44.37% in 2022 and is expected to witness the highest CAGR of 19.52% during the forecast period. Patients suffering from a significant injury, surgery, or serious disorders get rehabilitation and treatment at post-acute care institutions. Inpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing, and other sorts of post-hospitalization or postsurgical treatments are included in these services. This is expected to be driven by the high frequency of catastrophic injuries and road accidents, increased demand for home healthcare procedures, and growth in disposable income.

The assisted living facilities segment is expected to grow at a significant rate in India over the coming years. The increasing geriatric population with chronic disorders, acceptance of elderly care services, and government initiatives supporting the well-being of the elderly are expected to drive the market. The Senior Citizen Welfare Fund, a national program for the healthcare of the elderly, and Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana by the government are increasing the access to care services for the elderly population in India. 

Region Insights

Based on region, the market is broadly categorized into Central, North, West, East, Northeast, and South. The Western area of India includes the states and union territories of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Goa, Diu & Daman, and Dadra & Nagar Haveli respectively.

This can be attributed to the presence of multiple service providers, rising urbanization, and the growing rate of nuclear families in the west zone.

North India is expected to have the highest growth rate of 14.90% during the forecast period.. This can be attributed to the presence of retiring destinations suitable for assisted living services in the North.
