Physiotherapy Services - Australia Market Research Report
Date Published: February 2019
Strong and sturdy: Industry revenue is projected to grow due to rising demand from aged care
Over the past five years, trends in the health sector, such as the changing needs of Australia's ageing population and reform of the country's healthcare and private health insurance systems, have shaped the Physiotherapy Services industry. Industry firms have benefited from Australia's ageing population and rising private health insurance cover over the period. Many baby boomers have reached retirement age and have become more susceptible to injuries that require physiotherapy. While physiotherapy services receive minimal government subsidisation, private health insurers often cover these services. Physiotherapy services have also become more affordable for households as disposable incomes have grown over the past five years. Industry revenue is expected to rise at an annualised 3.3%
