On the mend: A rebounding economy will likely support industry revenue growth


Eating Disorder Clinics
The Eating Disorder Clinics industry has experienced increased demand over the five years to 2019, alongside rising incidence of eating disorders in the United States. While there has been a relatively high prevalence of eating disorders, few individuals with anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorders actually receive treatment from industry clinics. Furthermore, the vast majority of individuals suffering from an eating disorder do not receive treatment. Further constraining consumer demand for industry clinics, many public and private health insurers either limit their coverage of eating disorder treatments or exclude it altogether. However, certain states adopted mental health parity laws, effectively requiring insurers to cover all medically necessary treatments, including treatments for eating disorders, to the same degree that they cover treatments for physical illnesses. Overall, industry revenue has increased during the current period. Over the five years to 2024, industry revenue is forecast to continue rising, as operators are projected to allocate an increasing share of revenue to marketing efforts to attract new patients.

This industry includes enterprises devoted to the diagnosis and care of outpatients with disorders that affect, disrupt or more generally involve eating. Common eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating. Industry operators are often associated with hospitals or medical schools as treatments for eating disorders usually involve psychotherapy, nutrition education, family counseling, medications and hospitalization.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
