Due to lower immunity, many children suffer from gastrointestinal diseases, respiratory diseases, and other chronic diseases. Pediatric healthcare provides comprehensive care to all patients from birth to eighteen years of age. It manages the physical health, behavior-related health, and mental health of the children.

Increasing prevalence of diseases among neonates and infants is a major factor driving the global pediatric healthcare market growth. In 2010, more than 8% of children had a health condition that interfered with daily activities. Compared to last 50 years, this percentage symbolized an increase of more than 400%. 14% to 16% of this 400% increase came from an increase from four classes of more common conditions that were usually less complex and they did not have substantial mortality associated with them. These conditions included asthma, obesity, mental health conditions, and neurodevelopmental disorders. In the 21st century, the rates of asthma and obesity stabilized. However, rate of other conditions, such as autism spectrum disorders and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) kept on increasing, along with the rates of diagnosis. This resulted into better awareness of the conditions. Due to better awareness and more diagnosis, the demand for pediatric healthcare has increased all over the world, contributing to more investment in this market and leading to global pediatric healthcare market growth.
