The healthcare industry (also called the medical industry or health economy) is an aggregation and integration of sectors within the economic system that provides goods and services to treat patients with curative, preventive, rehabilitative, and palliative care. It includes the generation and commercialisation of goods and services lending themselves to maintaining and re-establishing health.
Pharmaceutical and healthcare companies are among the most analysed and evaluated organisations in business today. Pressure is mounting on the healthcare industry which has been characterised by rising costs, global competition induced by medical tourism and telemedicine, a growing imbalance of supply and demand as well as increasing customer demands in the recent decade. Demand is driving the system and flipping the traditional paradigm in which many health systems attempted to control costs by controlling supply.
The industry is dynamic. Ageing populations, a growing consumer interest in healthcare, advancements in technology and materials, as well as increased regulation, mean it is critical for organisations to keep abreast of the sector trends.

• healthcare equipment and services;
• pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and related life sciences.
The healthcare equipment and services group consists of companies and entities that provide medical equipment, medical supplies, and healthcare services, such as hospitals, home healthcare providers, and nursing homes. The latter listed industry group includes companies that produce biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and miscellaneous scientific services.
Other approaches to defining the scope of the healthcare industry tend to adopt a broader definition, also including other key actions related to health, such as education and training of health professionals, regulation and management of health services delivery, provision of traditional and complementary medicines, and administration of health insurance.
