The mobile clinics market is anticipated to register a CAGR of 20% during the forecast period.

The covid-19 pandemic has been a serious health condition since it started in the year 2020. It has affected the healthcare system in several ways. Some markets were badly impacted and scattered, while some of the markets benefitted from the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic is likely to have a relatively positive impact on the overall market. In a bid to avoid the spread of infection further and protect front-line workers and patients, mobile clinics have emerged as saviors. Mobile clinics as solutions are flexible, and their adaptability makes them ideal for responding to pandemics, such as COVID-19. The demand for these mobile clinics increased during the pandemic. While people feared attending in-person visits and long queues in hospitals and clinics, they opted out for mobile clinics to avoid the Covid-19 infection. Therefore, Covid-19 is expected to have a positive impact on the studied market.

Furthermore, an article published in May 2020 titled," Mobile health clinic model in the COVID-19 pandemic: Lessons learned and opportunities for policy changes and innovation" mentioned that mobile clinics provide access to healthcare, especially for isolated individuals or communities, they offer flexibility in the setting of a damaged or inadequate healthcare infrastructure. Also, as a community-based service delivery model, mobile clinics provide care by reaching out to the social-economically underserved populations in both urban and rural areas. Hence, owing to the flexibility and ability to overcome social barriers, the demand for mobile clinics is increasing. This is expected to grow over the forecast period driving the growth of the market globally.

The increasing healthcare expenditure and government activities to provide better care along with strategic steps taken are anticipated to grow the demand for mobile clinics. For instance, in March 2022, China donated four mobile clinics to Sierra Leone to support the country's 'Health-on-Wheels' project at York Village in the Western Rural District.

Additionally, in a press release published in March 2022 by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), it is mentioned that the mobile clinics supported by the Iraqi Red Crescent Society(IRCS), the International Committee of the Red Cross, the Danish Red Cross and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies are all equipped with teams of doctors, pharmacists, nurses, medicines and complete medical supplies, also a team of paramedics and volunteers to facilitate their work. These mobile clinics provided care to more than 73,000 people, while the number of beneficiaries of medical services extended to more than 91,000 people in 2021. These increasing government activities are expected to drive the growth of the studied market over the forecast period.

In addition, the constantly rising incidence of chronic diseases is anticipated to boost the growth of the global mobile clinics market. Manufacturers are curiously making their effort to develop advanced mobile clinics which can provide access to almost all healthcare needs. This is one of the developmental factors fueling the growth of the mobile clinics market. Moreover, the increasing number of emergency cases has also helped the growth of the studied market and is expected to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Geriatric Care by Clinic Type is Expected to Witness Growth Over the Forecast Period

The geriatric care segment is anticipated to witness healthy growth over the forecast period. The major factors affecting the growth of the segment include the rising burden of chronic disease and emergency cases among the geriatric target population. The subsequent rise in the geriatric population is also expected to contribute to the growth of the market studied.

Around 703 million people aged 65 years and above were living across the world in 2019, according to the estimates of the World Ageing Population report. In addition, the share of the population of age 65 years or over is expected to increase from 9.3% in 2020 to around 16% in 2050, while there were 727 million persons aged 65 years or over in 2020 globally, and the count of older persons worldwide is projected to more than double and expected to reach over 1.5 billion in 2050. The majority share of the older population is contributed by Eastern and South-Eastern Asia, followed by Europe and North America, according to the World Ageing Population report 2020. This target population and the increased length of life expectancy throughout the world are expected to have a significant impact on the healthcare system and an increase in chronic diseases. Thereby positively impact on the geriatric care segment, driving the growth of the global mobile clinics market growth.

Therefore, owing to the aforementioned factors, the geriatric care segment is expected to dominate the market in the coming years.

North America is Expected to Dominate the Market in the Forecast Period

North America is one of the major contributors to the studied market, owing to increasing chronic diseases and rising birth rates in the countries of the region. The rise in the need for advanced technology is expected to offer significant growth opportunities for the studied market over the forecast period.

Emergency care providers are focusing more on response time currently. The standardization, technology, training, and scalability of services are improving to ensure that care reaches the right time for the patient. The number of organizations present in the countries of the North American region offers an advanced technology-based infrastructure that employs location mapping and new-age tracking technologies to reduce the turnaround time for emergency response. Also, the manufacturers and contract organizations are inclined towards partnerships with secondary and tertiary care hospitals to cater to their huge patient pool. This is flexibility and feasibility towards technology, and availability at the time of emergency is possible due to advanced technology. This drives the growth of the mobile clinics market in the region.

Furthermore, the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) 2019 data shows that the adult obesity rates exceeded 35% in nine states, 30% in 31 states, and 25% in 48 states in the United States. This increasing burden of obesity among the population is increasing the risk of sudden cardiac attacks, hence, driving the demand for mobile emergency clinics in the United States.

In addition, the prevalence of diseases such as osteoarthritis has increased significantly in Canada. For instance, according to a report titled “The Burden of Osteoarthritis in Canada (2021)” commissioned by the Arthritis Community Research and Evaluation Unit (ACREU), around 15% of Canadians aged 20 years and above had osteoarthritis. The report further stated that more than 4 million Canadians, or about one in every seven adults, have osteoarthritis. The high burden of such disorders is expected to boost the demand for orthopedic emergency care. Therefore, as mobile clinics are available for most emergencies with facilities available inside, this is expected to positively impact the mobile clinics market in Canada.

Therefore, owing to the aforementioned factors, the market for mobile clinics is anticipated to witness growth in the region over the forecast period.
