Outlook

Terveystalo updated its market outlook on 12 August 2021 when publishing the Q2/2021 report. These views are based on the expected development of demand for Terveystalo’s services within the next six months, compared with the past six months.

  • The market environment is normalizing, but predicting demand continues to be challenging in the short term.
  • Demand for COVID-19 related services is expected to remain active during the second half of the year, and the demand for healthcare services in general is expected to grow clearly year-on-year.
  • Demand from corporate customers for preventive and statutory occupational health services is expected to develop favorably. The recovery of demand for acute and non-urgent medical care is uncertain due to the reduction in general morbidity and the restrictions introduced in response to the pandemic. Significant changes in the employment rate may be reflected in the underlying demand.
  • In the private customer segment, overall demand is expected to develop favorably and grow substantially year-on-year. However, there may be considerable differences between specialties and regions in the short term due to variation in general morbidity and regional restrictions related to the pandemic. Demand for remote services is expected to increase further. Significant changes in consumer confidence may be reflected in the underlying demand.
  • Demand from the public sector is expected to remain strong in occupational health, service sales, and staffing services. Revenue from the outsourcing business is expected to remain stable. 
  • These views are based on the expected development of demand for Terveystalo’s services within the next six months, compared with the past six months.
