Today, the Swedish Social Insurance Inspectorate publishes its report on competition and profitability in the Swedish personal care assistance market. The report is largely based on Copenhagen Economics’ analysis of competition and Grant Thornton’s analysis of profitability.
The Swedish personal care assistance market shows signs of effective competition. There is a large number of providers of assistance on a flexible market with relatively low profits, and most users of assistance choose providers actively. Moreover, the structure of the fixed-price benefits system is well-designed for the market.
Copenhagen Economics has contributed to the report by analysing whether conditions for effective competition are fulfilled on the market. The analysis is based on a framework, which can be applied to analyse the functioning of liberalised public service and choice markets.
