Understanding the Market
Current healthcare spending in the United States accounts for 16% of the Nation’s gross domestic product (“GDP”). This represents an average of over $7,026 for each person in the United States. Healthcare has been the only net growth sector over the last 10 years as healthcare spending has risen from 13.6% (1997) of GDP to 18.2% (2012) while housing, food, technology, auto and defense have remained flat as a percentage of GDP.
In its February 2008 report, CMS estimated that healthcare spending in the United States is projected to be above $2.2 trillion or approximately 16.3% of the GDP in 2007 and would grow to $4.3 trillion, or 19.5% of the GDP by 2017. In the United States, healthcare outlays have grown faster than the consumer price index. According to CMS, healthcare outlays are projected to grow at a rate of 6.7% annually between 2007 and 2017. The projected principal drivers for this growth include continued cost-increasing medical innovation, inflation, continued demand for prescription drugs and the aging baby boomer demographic.
