Big five health industry development trends in 2019
In the 21st century, health industry has become a global hot spot, and health industry will become a global wealth concentration industry after IT Internet industry.
With the deepening implementation of the national strategy of building a healthy China, many measures have been taken to boost the development of large-scale healthy industries, and the development of large-scale healthy industries has been taken as the focus of promoting the transformation and upgrading of the local economic structure, promoting the structural reform on the supply side, as well as the new economic growth point. At the same time, with the continuous improvement of income level, the acceleration of consumption structure upgrading and the increasing demand for quality of life, the health industry is facing unprecedented opportunities and broad prospects for development.
In recent years, the development has laid a solid foundation for the big health industry. Looking ahead, from the policy, macro and micro levels, the big health industry has shown some trends.
Good policies will continue
At present, due to the accelerated process of industrialization, urbanization, population aging and the constant changes in disease spectrum, ecological environment and lifestyle, China still faces the complex situation of coexistence of multiple disease threats and interweaving of multiple health factors. Therefore, health problems are increasingly mentioned by the people.
What the people expect and what the government does.
In August 2016, General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized at the National Health and Health Conference that "we should adhere to the correct policy of health and health work, focus on the grass-roots level, take reform and innovation as the driving force, give priority to prevention, attach equal importance to both Chinese and Western medicine, integrate health into all policies, and build and share with the people." "Integrating health into all policies" is an important part of the national health and health work policy and one of the important means to promote the construction of "healthy China" and realize the health of the whole people.
On October 25, 2016, the State Council issued the Outline of the "Healthy China 2030" Plan. This is the first long-term strategic plan in the field of health proposed at the national level since the founding of the People's Republic of China. The Outline clearly defines the overall strategy for the construction of healthy China in the next 15 years and highlights three key contents: first, prevention as the main task, moving forward, promoting a healthy lifestyle, reducing the incidence of diseases, promoting the sinking of resources and achieving affordable and sustainable development; second, adjusting and optimizing the health service system and strengthening early diagnosis. On the basis of strengthening the grass-roots level, we should promote the development of healthy industries and better meet the health needs of the masses. Thirdly, we should take "joint construction and sharing, health of the whole people" as the strategic theme, adhere to the government's leadership, mobilize the participation of the whole society, promote social co-construction and sharing, and everyone's autonomy and self-discipline, so as to realize the health of the whole people.
Afterwards, some policies and measures to promote the healthy development of private investment, Guiding Opinions on Promoting the Construction of Livable Environment for the Elderly, Guiding Opinions on Accelerating the Development of Fitness and Leisure Industry, Some Opinions on Opening the Market of Old-age Services to Improve the Quality of Old-age Services, and Developing Healthy Villages and Towns in Healthy Cities Guiding opinions on construction, Circular on Central Financial Support for Pilot Reform of Home and Community Old-age Services, Guiding Opinions on Promoting and Regulating the Application and Development of Big Data in Health Care, Guiding Opinions on Promoting the Combination of Health Care and Old-age Services, etc., have been issued in succession. Specific measures and guidance are given to the current situation and problems in the field of general health.
At present, China's large health industry is developing vigorously. According to the relevant national planning, by 2020, the market scale of the large health industry brought by "Healthy China" is expected to reach 100 billion yuan; by 2030, it will exceed 16 trillion yuan, which is three times the current market scale.
The next ten years will be the golden decade for the big health industry. According to the experience of health industry development in developed countries, the proportion of China's large health industry in GDP is less than 5%, which is far behind that of developed countries. With the adjustment of industrial structure becoming the mainstream trend, the possibility of encouraging the development of large and healthy industries in China to introduce favorable policies will continue.
The share of traditional Chinese medicine is gradually expanding
As an outstanding representative of Chinese civilization, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a medical science gradually formed and continuously enriched by the people of all nationalities in thousands of years of production and living practice and in the struggle against diseases. In the course of historical development, TCM is inclusive, innovative and open, forming a unique outlook on life, health, disease and prevention, realizing the integration and unification of natural science and humanities, and containing the profound philosophical thoughts of the Chinese nation. With the change of people's health concept and medical model, traditional Chinese medicine has shown more and more unique value.
Since the founding of New China, China has attached great importance to and strongly supported the development of traditional Chinese medicine. Chinese medicine and Western medicine complement each other, promote each other, and jointly maintain and improve public health, which has become an important feature and significant advantage of the medical and health undertakings with Chinese characteristics.
On December 6, 2016, the White Paper of Chinese Medicine published by the State Council pointed out that China attaches great importance to the development of Chinese medicine. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Party and the government have placed the development of traditional Chinese medicine in a more important position and made a series of major decision-making arrangements.
