Dive Insight:

The analysis found growth in the home healthcare industry to be driven by the increasing need for affordable healthcare solutions -- an issue that has been on the rise since the beginning of the 2000's due to ever-increasing healthcare costs.

Sandler Research notes that in the U.S. and some other countries, healthcare costs increased faster than inflation over the last decade reaching 3.62% while the consumer price index inflation rate remained at an average of 2.04%.

"This can be attributed to the increase in the prices of drugs, medical devices, and hospital services," the researchers concluded.

The news follows reports from other sources that home healthcare is one of the fastest growing sectors in the U.S. and a report from Transparency Market Research that the global market is predicted to progress to $303.6 billion by 2020 at a 8.10% CAGR between 2014 and 2020.
