Global Medical Tourism Market Dynamics

Driver

  • One of the key aspects that drives the growth of the market includes the availability of the lowest costs of surgical care. In developed countries, rising healthcare costs are putting a strain on both healthcare providers and patients. Government regulations imposed on the healthcare system in various nations cause operations to be delayed. This has prompted people to seek medical treatment in other countries. Medical treatment in Asian countries is cheaper than in private institutions in the United States, according to the Medical and Health Tourism Congress (MHTC). For an instance, cardiac bypass surgery in Thailand would cost USD13,000 against USD113,000 in the United States. As a result, an increase in the number of surgeries is being attributed to an increase in inbound health tourism to nations such as India and Thailand, among others, for speedy and low-cost medical care. Hence, due to this the market is likely to be propelled.
  • Another driving factor for the market growth is the expansion of inbound medical travel. Medical equipment, surgical procedures, wearables, linked healthcare, and other technological advancements in the healthcare industry have pushed the world closer to adopting better medical facilities for value-based care. Patients all across the world can now consult doctors, arrange appointments, and receive high-quality treatment due to advances in information and communication technology, telemedicine, and telehealth. As a result, the rate of inbound tourism in developing nations like Thailand and India has increased. Thailand, for example, is placed fifth in terms of inbound medical tourism after the United States, France, Turkey, and Belgium, according to the World Travel and Tourism Council. As a result, the need for low-cost treatment and the availability of improved medical infrastructure can be credited to the global market's growth.

Restraint

  • Retaining excellent physicians and nurses in nations with a large pool of them, such as India, is a huge difficulty. Because such competent experts are in low supply in most nations throughout the world, they command the highest wages. Brain drain occurs as a result of a lack of opportunity in one's own nation.

Global Medical Tourism Key Market Trends

  • The most prominent trend that contributes to the medical tourism market growth across the globe includes active consumer preference toward cosmetic procedures.

Individuals' increased awareness of personal care and appearance has resulted in increased demand for cosmetic procedures such as body fat removal, acne treatment, and so on. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic in July 2021, according to the American Academy of Facial and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) surgeons, there has been an increase in the number of appointments and treatments for a facelift, eyelift, and other procedures. Individuals' preference for these operations in other countries is also influenced by the availability of skilled specialists as well as high-quality care. This thus is expected to positively influence the growth of the market during the forecast period.
