An increase in the occurrence of chronic diseases has led to a US$360.25 billion projected growth in the health care facilities management market by 2026, according to a Mordor Intelligence report. In 2020, it was valued at $223.83 billion. 

The projected growth will feature a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.2% over the forecast interval, Healthcare Facilities Today reports. Other reasons for the growth in the health care facilities management market include rising global healthcare expenses and increasing medical tourism in countries such as China and India. Age is also a factor, with the number of Americans aged 65 and older projected to almost double from 52 million in 2018 to 95 million by 2060.
