Research and Markets: Health Insurance Exchange (HIX) IT Market - Trends & Global Forecasts to 2018

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Health Insurance Exchange (HIX) IT Market by Type, Phase, Component & End User - Trends & Global Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.

The global HIX IT market is mainly categorized by exchange type, phase, component, and end user. Private exchanges are expected to register the fastest growth rate among the HIX market by exchange type during the forecast period. Their favorable growth is attributed to the increasing shift of big employers such as Walgreen and Time Warner (News - Alert) towards private exchanges to reduce health benefits administration costs and provide their employees with multiple plan options as per their requirements.

Within private exchanges, multi-carrier exchanges primarily sponsored by third-party administrators such as brokers or benefits consultants are expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Other high-growth market segments in the HIX IT market include the operations and maintenance segment which is expected to grow at a highest CAGR during the forecast period. The factors contributing to its growth include ongoing operation cost for public as well as privae exchanges post its implementation. The HIX services market is also projected to register a double-digit growth in the next five years, driven by the shift toward cloud-based services.

The U.S. shows the greatest market potential in the near future. However, countries such as Japan, China, India, and Philippines are expected to offer potential growth opportunities to HIX stakeholders. In Japan, various favorable government initiatives are focusing on strengthening healthcare services such as the e-Japan policy, new IT reform strategy, and iJApan Strategy 2015. The healthcare IT expenditure in China grew from $135 billion in 2006 to $250 billion in 2010. In addition, the Indian government annually spends approximately 5% of its GDP on the healthcare sector and has approved 100% foreign direct investment (FDI)for setting up hospitals in India since 2000. Also, it is among the leading IT outsourcing destinations. All the above mentioned factors contribute to the potential growth opportunity of the HIX market.
