Medical Tourism Market Outlook:


Medical tourism market size revenues are poised to reach USD 77.30 Billion Through 2027, to expand at a steady CAGR of 20.5% by 2027, as per an in-depth medical tourism market report by Market Research Future (MRFR). Developing healthcare sectors in different countries are driving patients from around the world to avail the of top-class medical services. This forms the base for medical tourism where people migrate to other countries for specialty treatment.


Medical tourism is the movement of people from one country to another for seeking medical services which may not be available in their native country. Developed nations with advanced medical facilities are attracting patients who seek high-quality medical services in these nations. The global medical tourism market is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.07 % over the forecast period.


There is a wide variation in the cost of medical treatment in different countries. Therefore, affordability and availability of better medical services are the deciding factors for developing a particular region as a medical tourism hub. The market is booming with the rise in the disposable income of people in many developing nations. The medical tourism market size is expected to be worth USD 28.86 billion by the end of the current forecast period in 2028. 


Covid 19 Analysis


Covid-19 had a severe impact on the global medical tourism market. As there were strict restrictions on the movement of people and goods the market growth rate fell sharply.  Moreover, there was a shift in attention of health care workers towards the management of the covid virus so other cases were shadowed for some period. The closure of major transportation services such as airlines during the pandemic led to a sharp fall of medical tourists in destination centers.


The other impact was an overburdened healthcare system during the period that caused a lack of availability of doctors and specialists. Similarly, hindrances in pharmaceutical production also hampered market growth. However, the fear of the virus is waving away from people and the market is expected to show a rapid recovery after loosening restriction measures.


Market Dynamics


Drivers


The availability of high-quality medical services and affordable treatment options in destination countries is the driving factor for the growth of the medical tourism market. People often travel to other countries to benefit from advanced medical technology that may be unavailable in their native country. The other major factor driving the market growth is the availability of better hospitality services in destination countries. Many of the Institutes are earning reputations worldwide for their treatment and patient care facilities. Moreover, with the increasing penetration of social media, it has become easier to advertise for facilitators of medical tourism.


Some of the regions are also known globally for their affordable healthcare services. Therefore, cost benefits with active government support in such regions are creating a positive impression in the global market. Moreover, the rising disposable income of people in developing countries is also likely to fuel market growth. The market will grow further with increasing ease of travel through a reduction in procedural formalities of international travel.


Restraints


The need for rigorous documentation and international travel formalities is the major factor restricting the market growth. Additionally, high traveling and living costs are also a major hindrance to the growth of the medical tourism market. Sometimes, high medical services costs may be a limiting factor. The need for long waiting times in case of complicated diseases will also hamper the growth of the market.


Technology Analysis


Medical tourism means traveling to another country for medical treatment. Both qualitative and quantitative benefits play an important role in attracting global patients. Patients from less developed nations migrate to developed countries to seek advanced medical services that may be unavailable in their native country. On the other hand, the affordable cost of treatment in developing nations draws patients from developed nations to seek budget-friendly treatment. Better hospitality services and quicker availability of treatment act as factors promoting medical tourism.
