Market Size

In terms of revenue, the Kuwait hospital market has registered a constant growth with positive CAGR in the last five years (2012-2017). The majority of the healthcare sector in Kuwait is controlled by the Ministry of Health. Private participation in the healthcare sector is considerably low. The healthcare services in public sector hospitals are at highly subsidized rates. Owing to this, the number of outpatients and inpatients in public sector hospitals is significantly higher than in the private sector. However, the majority of the revenues generated in the hospital market is from the private sector hospitals. This is due to the enormous difference in prices for healthcare services in public and private sector hospitals.

Future Projections

The Kuwait Hospital Market is expected to grow at a positive CAGR from 2018-2022. Kuwait is a high income class country and the demand for high end luxurious stay at hospitals is increasing among Kuwaiti residents. The Kuwait hospital market is likely to witness the addition of numerous hospitals in the next five years, with a mix of publicly and privately owned hospitals. Specialty care hospitals for Maternity and Pediatrics, Infectious Disease and allied medicines including school health services & dentistry are likely to open in the future. The number of available hospital beds is also likely to grow significantly with the growth in the number of hospitals.

The revenue generated from private sector hospitals will continue to dominate the hospital market in Kuwait as private participation is likely to increase and so is the cost of private healthcare. It is expected that in the next five years, a number of general hospitals will come up in Kuwait. However, owing to the rising incidences and need for specialized tertiary and quaternary care, the number of specialized hospitals will be more in comparison to general hospitals. It is anticipated that by 2022, the revenue generated from outpatients will be greater than the revenue from inpatients due to the anticipated rise in the number of outpatients seeking private healthcare.

Market Segmentation

By Public & Private Hospitals: Majority of the hospitals in Kuwait are managed by MoH. Other government entities running hospitals in Kuwait are Ministry of Defense and Ministry of Social Affairs which operate one hospital each, specifically for military personnel and senior citizens respectively. However, in terms of revenue, private sector hospitals dominated the market in Kuwait, owing to the exorbitant cost of private healthcare in the country.

By Inpatients & Outpatients: Inpatient services are the major contributors to the overall revenue of the Kuwait Hospital Market. However, the number of patients seeking inpatient services is very small in comparison to outpatient appointments. Although the number of outpatients was more than inpatients, in 2017, the total revenue generated through outpatient appointments in Kuwait hospital market was less in comparison to the revenue generated from inpatients.

By General & Specialty: The number of general hospitals in Kuwait is greater than in specialty hospitals. Majority of the hospitals are concentrated in Al Asima Governorate and Hawalli Governorate. Most of the general hospitals in the country are operated by the MoH while a few are privately owned. Specialty hospitals provide specialized services in one particular or multiple types of diseases based on disciplines, age, organs, diseases, or other specificities.

Competition in Kuwait Hospital Market

Kuwait hospital market is largely dominated by public hospitals in terms of the number of patients and beds. However, in terms of revenue, private hospitals take the lead mainly on account of high treatment fees charged. Dar Al Shifa Hospital, Al Salam International Hospital and New Mowasat Hospital are among leading players in the Kuwait Hospital market. Royale Hayat hospital and Al Seef Hospital are luxury hospitals where healthcare services are accompanied by a luxurious hospitality experience. These are among the most expensive hospitals in Kuwait.
