“Concise Analysis of the International Medical Tourism Market - Forecast to 2019”
Medical tourism covers sophisticated treatments such as cardiac surgery, orthopedics, neurosurgery, dental care or elective treatments such as cosmetic surgeries or even routine health check-ups. The medical tourism industry is emerging due to the rise in healthcare expenditure in developed countries coupled with the availability of cost effective treatments in developing countries. The high cost of treatment in developed countries is seen as a prime reason for the migration of patients to other destinations.
In the United States, approximately 50 million people are uninsured and approximately 139 million Americans are without dental insurance. It was estimated that approximately 1.6 million Americans travelled to other destinations in 2012 for seeking medical services. Cost of treatment in developing countries is in a range of 20% to 30% less to the cost in the United States. Therefore, a patient can save up to 30% to 85% on the medical services coupled with sophisticated travel expenditure. The global medical tourism market was valued at USD 10.5 billion in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 17.9 % from 2013 to 2019 to reach an estimated value of USD 32.5 billion in 2019.
Driving factors such as a rise in geriatric population, increasing adoption of sophisticated technology and favorable exchange rates have boosted the growth of this market.
