Complete Guide to the Health Care Industry From Plunkett Research 2021

October 14, 2020

HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. announces an important market research and competitive analysis report, Health Care Industry Almanac, 2021 edition. A complete market research report, including forecasts and market estimates, technologies analysis and developments at innovative firms.

Health care expenditures continue to rise in the U.S. Total U.S. health care expenditures were estimated to be $4.01 trillion in 2020, and are projected to soar to $6.19 trillion in 2028. Health spending in the U.S., at about 18% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2020, is projected to grow steadily.

Outside the U.S., stark contrasts exist between health costs in the United States and those of other countries. A 2019 comprehensive study published by the Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development (OECD) covering more than 30 countries, including the UK, France, Germany, Mexico, Canada, South Korea, Japan, Australia and the U.S., found the average spent on healthcare amongst those countries, was 8.8% of GDP. The highest figures in this study were the United States at 17.0% of GDP, Switzerland at 12.1%, Germany at 11.7%, France at 11.2%, Japan at 11.1%, Sweden at 10.9%, Canada at 10.8% and Norway at 10.5%.

Total health care expenditures around the world are difficult to determine, and the Coronavirus pandemic made 2020 an even more difficult year to forecast. However, $10.0 to $10.5 trillion would be a reasonable estimate for the formal, global health care market for 2020. That would place health care at roughly 12% of global GDP and about $1,400 in health spending per person on average.
