Report # FS65

$995  *January 2024  *90 pages

Health coaching has emerged as a $7.6 billion healthcare service market, with a strong growth outlook. An estimated 128,000 health coaches and health educators advise and motivate clients to change bad lifestyle habits and to manage chronic conditions such as diabetes. Consumers, employers and insurers are each now more seriously focused on improving health and being proactive, in light of the pandemic, rising obesity levels, and chronic health conditions.

You are most likely to find a health coach or health and wellness coach in private practice, at a healthcare insurer, or via a corporate wellness program. Large self-insured companies are using certified health coaches to improve employee health and cut claims costs, as are healthcare insurers. However, like coaching in general, the industry is loosely defined, unregulated, and certification is performed by many competing organizations. However, improved CPT codes and reimbursement are on the near-term horizon.

This new report by Marketdata covers the following: market definition—types of  health coaches, what they do, where they work, their number, annual salaries, market structure, market size: 2000-2028 forecast, effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, recovery since 2020, the shift to virtual coaching, estimated number of weight loss coaches employed by major diet companies, demand and awareness of health coaching by consumers, findings of phone interviews with heads of the National Society of Health Coaches, Wellcoaches, Institute of Integrative Nutrition, coaches by specialty, coach demographics.

Profiles of the 8 major certification organizations, profiles of insurance company users (Aetna, Cigna, Humana, United Health Group), MD and Veterans Admin. programs, demand factors and usage by consumers, findings of 2020-2023 surveys by YourCoach, TwineHealth, NBHWC, and AFPA, list of the top health coaching providers and apps, and the industry’s major issues, obstacles and growth drivers.

$1,295 , Nov. 2023, 133 pages – 45 Tables & Charts

Report # FS40

This groundbreaking new report by Marketdata LLC examines the booming $17.5   billion business of medical spas (med spas). Industry revenues have more than tripled since 2012. There are now 8,800 medical spas operating in the United States—an interesting hybrid niche healthcare/cosmetic facility that straddles the medical and business fields. Many nurses and clinicians entering the field don’t have adequate business skills. That’s why they sell to private equity investors, who can handle marketing better.

As primary care MDs seek to replace lost income, and as Baby Boomers and Millennials age, demand is growing for non-invasive cosmetic procedures for women and men, made possible by new laser equipment.

This new study examines the medspa industry structure and history, revenues/growth, 13 major market trends and issues, effects of the pandemic, consumer demand factors and demographics, extensive med spa operating metrics, why franchising has grown so slowly, investment by private equity firms, and more.

The U.S. Diagnostic Imaging Centers Industry  (New)

Report # FS71

$1,395, August 2019, 86 Pages, 22 Tables & Charts

This analysis by Marketdata examines the $19.5 billion diagnostic imaging centers sector.  The business is highly competitive, with 6,500 facilities and with the 50 largest competitors capturing just 29% of the market. There is only one public publicly-owned company that operates a chain of imaging centers, RadNet, with $975 million in sales.

Several positive factors are impacting this industry. The U.S. is the largest medical imaging market globally due to the high disposable income of consumers. The launch of new innovative equipment by major companies will spur growth.  In addition, the United States is expected to experience an accelerated rate of aging population, which leads to an increase in the demand for imaging services, since the elderly population is more prone to chronic diseases.

This new study by Marketdata examines the nature of the industry, types of imaging equipment used, national receipts/growth from 2002 to 2023 forecast, healthcare demand factors, key industry trends, industry structure and operating ratios (national and state Census data for establishments and firms), top companies market share, insurance/ Medicare reimbursement trends and more.

Report # FS70

$1,395, July  2019, 82 Pages, 28 Tables & Charts

This analysis by Marketdata examines the $24.7 billion kidney dialysis centers sector – a growth industry.  The kidney dialysis business is highly concentrated, with the 4 largest competitors comprising more than 85 % of the market, but substantial competition still takes place.

While there are a few large national companies, Fresenius Medical Care and DaVita Healthcare Partners, this industry is experiencing heightened M&A activity from both strategic suitors and private equity investors.

U.S. Fertility Clinics & Infertility Services – An Industry Analysis

(Includes Effects of Covid-19 on The Industry)

Report # FS2

$1,695, May 2020, 145 Pages, 31 Tables

This analysis by Marketdata examines the $6 billion infertility services/fertility clinics industry.  This loosely regulated “baby business” grew strongly from 2014 to 2019, boosted both by demand domestically and via medical tourism patients from Europe and China. However, due to the Coronavirus, the industry will be hit hard in 2020, as many clinics shut down for two months and foreign patients are not coming to the U.S. any longer.

ART (assisted reproductive technology) now produces more than 50,000 babies per year in the U.S. via 330,000 IVF procedures, and demand is growing from the ranks of 7+ million infertile women, many of which delayed childbearing due to careers. There are about 450 U.S. fertility clinics, 100+ sperm banks, an unknown number of egg donors, and 1,700 reproductive endocrinologists competing for the business, which is lucrative.  In addition, the U.S. market for fertility drugs is worth about $749 million. Only two large “chains”, IntegraMed and Prelude Fertility exist, as most programs are run by small MD practices or are part of a hospital or University. The market is fragmented, served by mostly small regional clinics.

This 4th edition study by Marketdata examines the nature/evolution of the business, national receipts/growth from 1988 to 2019, 2020 forecast, 2025 forecast, infertile customer demographics, key industry trends, industry regulation, pricing, industry consolidation, insurance coverage, ethical issues, and more. Contains results of the latest (2015-2018) CDC ART survey national data, with IVF success rates and long-term trends, as well as European ART cycles and outlook. The report also examines the nature/size of the U.S. sperm banks, egg donors, and fertility drugs markets, and surrogacy programs.

Competitor Profiles for: Cryos International, California Cryobank, Resolve, Allan Guttmacher Institute, Genetics and IVF Institute, IntegraMed America, Prelude Fertility.

Report # FS52

$995 *July 2015 * 91 pages

This new Marketdata study examines the little-known but growing $1.3 billion niche healthcare market of medical foods. While medical foods are gaining more widespread acceptance, they remain poorly understood by patients, pharmacists and physicians. Most doctors in the U.S. have not heard of the term ‘medical food’ and don’t know that it is a distinct, FDA-regulated category.

Medical foods are custom made liquid solutions, used enterally, to treat people with Alzheimers, depression, PTSD, osteoporosis, oncology patients, kidney dialysis patients, and infants with NEC/colitis. These products are obtained via pharmacies, by prescription—not retail. They are not regulated like drugs but must meet GRAS standards. The market has huge potential but is hampered by a lack of a trade association, a lack of exposure, and domination by a few large players.

This is a complete analysis of: market nature and definition, history and evolution, the major medical foods products/brands, how manufacturers operate, distribution channels, the role of physicians and pharmacists, market size and structure (2011, 2015, 2020 forecasts), government regulation and FDA actions/guidelines, major end-users and demand factors, potential for use in treating 10 major diseases/conditions, major market trends, functional foods market status, issues and obstacles, and more. Includes 29 in-depth competitor profiles and market outlooks by competitors. Includes 16 tables and charts.
