Home Healthcare Market insights

In 2019, the market accounted for approximately 4% of India’s overall healthcare industry earnings. It was valued at INR 460.00 Bn in 2020. It is expected to reach INR 3,228.19 Bn by 2026, expanding at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of ~38.59% during the 2021 – 2026 period.

An increase in the size of the aging population and the increased prevalence of chronic ailments such as hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases are aiding the growth of the market. The government is trying to motivate patients to reduce hospital visits and avail home-care services through its healthcare initiative, Ayushman Bharat Scheme (Union Budget 2019).

This will propel market growth. Competition is intense because of the presence of existing players and the entry of new digital healthcare firms (such as Netmeds, 1MG, and Myra), who are expanding their portfolios for home healthcare services.
