"Strong outlooks exist for many niche healthcare sectors."

Tampa FL,  November 11,  2019:  Marketdata LLC, a leading independent market research publisher since 1979, has found that many healthcare markets have strong outlooks over the next five years. Many of them provide personal services in specific areas, such as: weight loss, meditation, kidney dialysis, diagnostic imaging, health coaching, infertility treatment, and physical therapy.
   “Niche healthcare markets are multi-billion sectors with good growth histories and future potential, as America ages. Most sectors continue to grow, and are recession-resistant. Some of these markets are ripe for consolidation and roll-ups, as they are fragmented--comprised of many small operators.”, According to Research Director, John LaRosa:
