The U.S. hospital facilities market size was valued at USD 1,411.7 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.7% from 2023 to 2030. The growing impetus for better patient care and the entry of novel healthcare technology is expected to increase the demand for well-equipped hospitals in the coming years. According to the CDC, six out of ten adults in the U.S. have a chronic disease, such as cancer, stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and others, with four in ten adults having two or more chronic conditions. These and other non-communicable chronic illnesses are the foremost causes of disability and death in the U.S. They are also a leading driver of healthcare costs and are expected to drive the market during the forecast period.
The demand and supply gap in the U.S. healthcare system is growing rapidly. This is mainly due to the growing number of patients and the limited resources available to provide the necessary care. Furthermore, an increase in the average life expectancy of citizens has created a large geriatric population in the country, which requires special medical care, creating a strain on the medical system.
The current limited number of healthcare providers and facilities cannot fulfill patient requirements, and thus the demand for healthcare facilities is growing continuously in the U.S. According to Health System Tracker, the U.S. government spent USD 4.3 trillion on national healthcare in 2021. The country spent 19.7% of its GDP on healthcare in 2020. Moreover, health spending increased by 2.7% from 2020 to 2021, which was much slower than the 10.3% increase witnessed from 2019 to 2020.
As the patient population keeps growing, the country’s healthcare expenditure is expected to grow rapidly, in turn favoring overall market growth. Over the years, there has been a significant rise in the number of surgical procedures performed in the U.S. According to an NCBI study, approximately 40 to 50 million surgical procedures are performed in the country every year.
In addition, according to the National Center for Health Statistics, over 40 million inpatient surgical procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2000, which was closely followed by 31.5 million outpatient surgeries. The procedures that were performed most frequently included surgeries of the digestive system, musculoskeletal system, cardiovascular system, and ophthalmology.
Such factors are expected to drive the demand for hospital services in the U.S. due to the availability of specialized medical staff and growing awareness about their effectiveness in healthcare settings. Furthermore, technological advancements such as AI, electronic health records, mHealth, telemedicine/telehealth, sensors & wearable technology, wireless communication systems, remote monitoring, robotics, and other notable innovations are expected to drive the market during the forecast period. For instance, Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Caption Health announced a collaboration in October 2020 to bring new AI-powered ultrasound equipment into clinical practice.
The outpatient services segment dominated the market with a share of around 51% in 2022 and is additionally poised to be the fastest-growing segment with a CAGR of 9.0% over the forecast period. The development of new technologies, such as telemedicine, telemonitoring, and diagnostic techniques has led to shorter patient stays, as physicians can provide treatment remotely, which, in turn, reduces overhead costs and patient fees.
Furthermore, there has been a gradual shift to outpatient or daycare surgeries among patients in recent years. Minimally invasive surgeries have made it possible for daycare surgeries to flourish. This is expected to boost the outpatient service segment’s growth. In terms of patient services, the U.S. hospital facilities market is segmented into outpatient services and inpatient services.
Meanwhile, the inpatient services segment is expected to expand owing to the rising number of hospitalizations and the high cost of care for inpatients. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2022, septicemia, heart failure, osteoarthritis, pneumonia, and diabetes with complications were the top five reasons for inpatient stays in the U.S.
The inpatient services segment is projected to have moderate growth during the forecast period. Inpatient services are the primary source of revenue for hospitals. However, due to the introduction of novel techniques, such as better diagnostics and interventional surgeries, the recovery time for patients is being reduced. Thus, the average time for an inpatient is reduced, which, in turn, is expected to decrease the share of the inpatient services segment in the near future.
The cardiovascular segment dominated the market, accounting for a share of around 20% in 2022. The segment is further expected to dominate the market over the forecast period. Growing adoption of sedentary lifestyle practices is leading to a rise in the incidence of obesity in the U.S., thus increasing the risk of heart diseases. Thus, an increasing number of patients suffering from CVDs is expected to propel segment growth.
The cancer care segment is also expected to account for a significant market share over the forecast period. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S. after CVDs. According to the HCUP, there were about 2.8 million cancer-related hospitalizations in 2017. Out of these, around 1.0 million hospitalizations had cancer as a principal diagnosis and 1.7 million had cancer as a secondary diagnosis.
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, in 2022, 609,360 cancer deaths and over 1.9 million new cancer cases were projected to occur in the U.S. which also includes 350 deaths approximately due to lung cancer, the leading cause of cancer deaths. The increasing costs of cancer treatment, the rising number of specialized oncology departments & oncologists, and the supportive reimbursement framework are among the key factors expected to propel segment growth.
Based on service type, the market is segmented into acute care; cardiovascular; cancer care; neurorehabilitation & psychiatry services; pathology lab, diagnostic, and imaging; obstetrics & gynecology; and others. The acute care segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 8.78% from 2023 to 2030, owing to the rising demand for primary care services and the increasing prevalence of acute infections. For instance, as per a survey distributed by the CDC, a total of 523,000 emergency department visits for infectious and parasitic diseases led to hospital admissions in 2018.
The public/community hospitals segment dominated the market with a share of over 52% in 2022. Community hospitals hold the highest number of patient beds and offer a wide variety of care areas through different services. They are non-profit organizations meant for public services and are supported by philanthropic groups, businesses, and crowd-funded societies. On the basis of facility type, the market is further divided into public/community hospitals, state-owned & federal hospitals, and private hospitals.
The state-owned & federal hospitals segment held the second-largest share of the market. State-owned hospitals primarily aim to target patients who require acute care, including infection control and accident/trauma cases. Federal hospitals play an essential role in providing health services to patients having limited access to quality care. According to the AHA, in 2021, there were 206 federal hospitals in the U.S.
Increasing access to public healthcare is expected to drive segment expansion. Dr. Reddy's Laboratories Ltd. launched the Regadenoson injection, a substance used in imaging the heart muscle to check blood flow and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in the U.S. market in 2023. The injection is a pharmacologic stress agent for radionuclide myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) in patients unable to undergo adequate exercise stress.
On the other hand, the private hospital segment is anticipated to witness lucrative expansion with a CAGR of 8.7% over the forecast period. Private hospitals have gradually advanced their technology to better serve patients in need of critical care, such as cancer patients. The growing number of private hospitals and consolidation of healthcare facilities are expected to bolster the growth of the segment.
Based on bed size, the market is segmented into 0-99, 100-199, 200-299, and 300-more. The 0-99 segment dominated the market in 2022 with a revenue share of 53.2%. This segment comprises small hospitals that primarily serve rural or remote areas with low population density. These hospitals play an important role in providing access to basic healthcare services to communities although some hospitals in this segment fulfill specialized needs of the services based on the local population. Their primary focus is on delivering essential medical care.
The 100-199 segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR of 8.13% over the forecast period. These hospitals are better equipped to offer a wider range of services and specialties compared to the smaller facilities. With a higher bed capacity, they can accommodate more patients and address a broader spectrum of medical needs.
The 399 and more segment is anticipated to witness a lucrative CAGR over the forecast period. They are equipped with modern technology, specialized medical staff, and research capabilities, driving advancements in medical science. These are the factors attributed to the growth of this segment.
Hospitals in the U.S. are collaborating with medical technology companies to adopt the latest technologies for healthcare delivery. For instance, in May 2021, UCSF Health announced a collaboration with Royal Philips to develop technologies that will enable a more modern, streamlined patient experience and establish a new standard for healthcare delivery. In addition, key players are strengthening their position in the market through activities such as mergers & acquisitions and facility expansions.
The American Hospital Association estimates that 1,887 hospital mergers were announced between 1998 and 2021. The number of hospitals fell from roughly 8,000 to a little over 6,000 as a result of these mergers. Change Healthcare, a provider of healthcare technology, was successfully acquired by UnitedHealth for USD 13 billion. This profitable acquisition may inspire businesses to challenge the Department of Justice to close deals of this size or more.
Also, in March 2023, CVS Health stated that it had completed the acquisition of the renowned provider of home healthcare services, Signify Health. The conclusion of this agreement shows that CVS is prepared to substantially expand its home healthcare services business.
