The Rise of Medical Tourism
New demographic realities such as climbing birth rates and longevity (1 in 10 people will be older than 80 by 2050) are driving up the global demand for premium healthcare services.
Global medical tourism, growing at an annual 17% since 2013 and set to hit 32 billion USD next year, caters mainly for 2 markets: Patients seeking either luxury rejuvenation and cosmetic treatments, or patients needing curative care for an ailment that cannot be treated timely or cost-effectively in their own country.
The APAC market is predicted to soon dominate medical tourism with over 50% market share according to Technavio, thanks to comparative savings of 25- 90% in destinations such as Singapore, Taiwan, India and Malaysia.
Why is Medical Tourism booming?
According to a KPMG study*, medical tourism will continue to boom, thanks to a plethora of internationally accredited hospitals and clinics who offer affordable, high-quality and immediate healthcare for patients requiring urgent care or willing to pay to skip a waiting list.
Medical tourism also offer patients complete anonymity and the added allure of an exotic travel destination for those seeking non-invasive treatments such as dental and cosmetic care that require little to no recovery time.
