Highlights

  • The rising population and the rise in health issues are increasing the demand for healthcare products and services.
  • People’s lifestyle is one of the reasons for rising health issues in the present times.
  • TLX, RHT, CYC, IPD, AVR are five stocks from the healthcare space that can be explored in 2022.

It would not be an exaggeration to say that the rise in population is directly proportional to the demand for medical services and products. As per a report, recently published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, people with age group 20 years to 49 years made up 44% of the collective capital city population, compared with 36% of the population in the remaining parts of Australia. People with age 50 years & beyond make up 32% of the people in cities which is 39% in the rest of Australia.

With the increase in the number of health issues as a result of people’s lifestyle and age, there is an increase in the demand for medical equipment and hospitals to treat these health issues.

In this article, we would look at a few healthcare players who made significant progress lately and we feel these stocks can be further explored in 2022.
