Rising prevalence of chronic conditions such as cerebral palsy, congenital heart diseases, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, epilepsy and cancer in pediatric pollution worldwide has created opportunities for key players to invest in the pediatric home healthcare market. According to 2009-10 NS-CSHCN, around 5.6 million children in the U.S. required at least 5 hours of in-home medical care. Parents spend around 1.5 billion hours a year in taking care of their children, which leads to economic burden of USD 3,200 for each family.

Favorable insurance policies aid to rising demand for pediatric healthcare services. According to American Academy of Pediatrics, home healthcare services for children such as nursing care, primary care, personal care assistance, and hospice care are covered under Medicaid.

Skilled nursing services have significantly reduced inpatient cost of children with medical complexities. According to a study published in May 2018, average cost of skilled nursing services amounts to USD 450 per day, whereas inpatient care amounts to USD 3,000 per day. Pediatric home care providers are facing major challenges in marinating their nursing staff to provide quality care for children with special healthcare needs.

Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit lucrative growth during the forecast period. With advances in medical technologies in developing countries, the survival expectancy of premature infants and neonatal babies has significantly improved; however, these babies are at higher risk of developing physical & neurological disorders, requiring in-home pediatric care. Thus, BAYADA Home Health Care has opened several pediatric services in India, South Korea, and New Zealand.
