U.S. Acute Hospital Care Market Massive Economic Growth, Major Applications, Competitive Scenario And Opportunities Till 2030

U.S. Acute Hospital Care Industry Overview

The U.S. acute hospital care market size was valued at USD 1,480.9 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.6% from 2022 to 2030. 

Its growth can be attributed to factors such as the growing geriatric population, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, and favorable public reimbursement available for the services through Medicare and Medicaid. According to NCBI studies, individuals over the age of 65 years are at a greater risk of developing chronic illnesses, which could lead to acute exacerbations of underlying chronic diseases. As per the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of people aged 65 was 40.3 million in 2010 and increased to 54.1 million, as of July 2019. The number of elderly patients with critical illnesses has significantly increased over the past few years.

The risk of malnutrition and frailty in the geriatric population with comorbidities, such as depression, stroke, and dementia, is much higher, mainly owing to various age-related changes in body composition and muscle mass. This results in reduced ability to perform Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), thereby increasing the risk of falls or injuries. As hospital-based emergency rooms are becoming increasingly crowded-with wait times averaging 55 minutes-more patients enrolling in high-deductible health plans, demand for acute hospitals has intensified, especially for patients with severe conditions.

The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons reported that in the U.S., bone fracture is a common injury and around 6 million people suffer from it every year. Out of these, around 300,000 patients receive acute care in hospitals. This is expected to boost the growth of the market for acute hospital care in the U.S. Furthermore, there has been a constant increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, and neurological disorders, which could require hospitalization for exacerbation of the underlying chronic diseases. Around 45.0% of the U.S. population, or 133 million people, suffers from at least one chronic condition. Over 1.7 million people die every year in the U.S. due to chronic conditions. The growing prevalence of chronic diseases is one of the crucial factors expected to boost the demand for acute hospitalization.

The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases is leading to a rise in healthcare expenditure. Patients with chronic disorders are frequent users of U.S. healthcare services. Such patients account for nearly 76.0% of the overall physician visits, around 81% of the hospital admissions, and approximately 91.0% of all prescriptions filled. It is also estimated that by 2025, almost 49.0% of the total U.S. population will be affected by chronic conditions. The healthcare providers are trying to reduce the cost burden by limiting the average length of stay is anticipated to boost the market for acute hospital care in the U.S. over the forecast period.
