Drivers & Restraints

Surge in Physical and Mental Health-related Disorders will Boost the Market

The number of people seeking services and treatment at facilities has increased as a result of the rising prevalence of health issues. In addition, the JAMA Open Network survey discovered that during 2018, the number of ED visits for behavioral disorders services increased by 30%. However, due to lack of money and infrastructure, shortages are much more likely to happen in rural areas of the nation. As a result, the market cannot expand since there are not enough specialists to meet the rising demand.
