MEDICAL TOURISM INDUSTRY INSIGHTS

The medical tourism market size was estimated at USD 41.30 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 192.91 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 29.29% during the forecast period.

Growth in the medical tourism industry led to increased patients traveling from their home country to other countries abroad to receive health treatment. Most medical tourists traveling from developed countries to developing countries are motivated by the low out-of-pocket cost of healthcare and fewer waiting times or services that are not available in their home countries. The APAC region is highly dominating by the global medical tourism market, with a significant revenue share of 46.00% in 2020.

Advertising plays a major role in attracting customers. Like many other privately driven industries, the medical tourism industry also needs exposure in the advertisement. Website advertising now became the most common source of information for medicinal travelers. Having more accredited hospitals will further boost a country’s positioning in the global arena. The tremendous growth in medicinal tourism is characterized by the simultaneous development of JCI-accredited health centers.
