The global home infusion therapy market size is expected to reach USD 41.6 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a CAGR of 7.3% over the forecast period. Increasing incidences of hospital-acquired infections are some of the major factors contributing to the market growth. Home infusion therapy is considered an alternative to an extended stay in hospitals or nursing homes for patients suffering from chronic diseases. With the administration of medications in home settings, patients recover faster when compared to the hospital and are more comfortable at home.
Several government and non-government programs are carried out in order to spread awareness among people regarding home infusion therapy. In October 2019, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services issued a rule stating that all home infusion therapy payments will get covered under the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018. In addition, favorable government policies and regulations are expected to propel the market growth. In February 2018, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 was signed into a law which states that all temporary payments of home infusion therapy in U.S. will be covered by the government in accordance with this regulation.
In addition, the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), cancer, diabetes, and other life-threatening conditions, is expected to have a high impact on market growth. According to a WHO report, the above-mentioned diseases accounted for 60.0% of the total deaths and 43.0% of the disease burden in U.S. in 2019. This creates the need to infuse nutritional products that contain glutamine, phospholipids, glucose, and amino acids while administering medication to patients, which, in turn, is expected to boost the market growth in this region.
Technological developments in home infusion therapy devices are also anticipated to make therapy more convenient and user-friendly for patients. For instance, in April 2017, B. Braun launched Easypump home infusion therapy app for both patients and the physician. This app will help patients to safely administer the medicine as per the requirements.
