Outlook, published 14 February 2019

Employment and consumer confidence remain at a high level in Finland, and the market environment is positive. If the health care and social welfare reform is delayed, demand in public outsourcings is expected to grow. Should the reform move forward it would enable private service providers to offer publicly funded health center services basically similar to the current services. Corporate customers keep up a steady demand, and the relative share of preventive services is increasing. Private customer demand remains likewise at a steady level but new capacity on the market decreases Terveystalo’s revenue growth. This capacity growth has reached its peak, however. These views are based on the expected market development within the next six months, compared to the last six months.
