Global Medical Tourism Market Size (2021 to 2026)

As per our recent report, the global medical tourism market size is forecasted to worth 78.15 billion by 2026 from USD 33.03 billion in 2021, growing at a CAGR of 18.8% between 2021 to 2026. In 2020, the North American region had accounted for the leading global medical tourism market share.

Medical tourism or Healthcare tourism is defined as traveling across countries to benefit the medical treatment of some form, which might not be accessible in the travelers' nation of origin. Medical tourism is considered the travel around international borders to avail medical treatment available in their home country. These treatments include IVF fertility treatment, cancer treatment, neurosurgeries, orthopedic surgeries, etc. This treatment may incorporate a full cluster of therapeutic services. However, the most frequently profited services include dental care, elective surgery, fertility treatment, and cosmetic surgery. Developed Countries like the United States, Germany, United Kingdom, Singapore, Japan, Canada, and France offer highly advanced treatments and are some of the best countries for medical tourism. So, patients travel to such destinations when quality care is not available in the local environment.

Although the quality of treatment is reliable, medical tourism is often estimated to be expensive. As a result, the prices of significant health products are also costly. This situation places a considerable burden on the global healthcare system, as litigation costs have recently increased.

Healthcare professionals need to be aware of the direct and indirect costs and consider ways to save money over time by implementing preventive programs. Developed nations cannot afford massive healthcare spending. Not all medical expenses were covered by the insurance company, which took the patient abroad. Compared to developed countries, countries in Asia, the Middle East, and South America offer high-quality medical services at much lower rates. Some companies can meet all the medical and non-medical needs of tourists while traveling.

MARKET DRIVERS:

The availability of superior quality healthcare and technological developments are majorly promoting the global medical tourism market growth.

Medical tourism is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world. People travel abroad using treatments and are being treated for health problems. Also, increased awareness of advanced medical facilities is expected to be the most crucial factor driving the growth of the medical tourism market during the forecast period. Developing countries are increasingly paying attention to technological advances and quality services in the medical and healthcare fields. 

Some of the other significant drivers of medical tourism are the most advanced technology, quicker access for medically necessary procedures, low-cost care for associated treatment, lower-cost care for discretionary procedures, and better-quality care for medically necessary procedures. Improvement and growth in medical tourism depend on the extent of travel by people for treatment, which should be affordable and accessible. For instance, cancer treatment is expensive, and the duration of treatment is prolonged. Hence people migrate to foreign countries for better accessibility in the price range. It contributes to the growth of the medical tourism market.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) report, the total fare for heart bypass surgery is 10,000 USD in India, 113,000 USD in America, 9,000 USD in Malaysia, and 7,410 USD in Poland. Likewise, angioplasty, it is 47,000 USD in America, 11,000 USD in India, 13,000 USD in Singapore, 7,300 USD in Poland. Many hospitals have more extensive networks to engage with pay reimbursement activities through medical claims and insurances, which is an advantage factor for the medical tourism market.

According to a few reports in 2019, in terms of revenue, Thailand dominated the market as 2.8 million people took medical care due to the excellent healthcare services from Thailand. Other few growing medical tourism destinations include Taiwan, Singapore, Spain, Colombia. Medical tourism, another beneficial factor, is that they concentrate on insurance pilot programs and health benefit plans. 

Medical Tourism Market in which the affordability and accessibility of high-quality medical services, and the support of the tourism sector and local governments, are factors driving the growth of the global medical tourism market. Also, the latest medical technologies in medical tourism centers worldwide are expected to drive market growth. The government's support to maintain the general reputation and political stability of the host country is a crucial factor driving the Medical Tourism Market. Besides, there is a growing demand for non-insurable procedures such as gender reassignment surgery, fertility treatment, dental reconstruction, and cosmetic surgery.

MARKET RESTRAINTS:

The rigorous documentation process, visa approval issues, and inadequate insurance coverage are several factors that hinder the growth of the medical tourism market. Conditions that include deep vein thrombosis, tuberculosis, amoebic dysentery, and paratyphoid fever caused by poor postoperative care and insufficient rest are other significant factors limiting the global medical tourism market growth. Extended duration for assisting medical treatment, post-surgery complications incorporated with the restricted chance of follow-up, and high costs to undergo preventive surgery in developed countries further restrict the global medical tourism market growth.

Additionally, the medical tourism market growth is hampered by long waiting times for medical treatments, patient follow-up problems, and post-surgery complications. The high cost of traveling, where average citizens cannot afford it, is steadily degrading the medical tourism market's demand. Although the credentialing and sophistication of (some) destination country facilities can mitigate individual patient risks, the lack of benefits to poorer people in developed countries offering medical tourism remains a generic equity problem that would hinder market growth over the forecast period. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic globally, the medical tourism market is one of the most affected industries.

COVID-19 impact on the global medical tourism market:

During the COVID-19 era, the growth curve of the medical tourism market was flattened. The key causes of the collapse of market shares are lockdown restrictions and the ban on international flights. Emergency services are, however, continuing in every region of the world. By taking proper steps to fight against coronavirus, the lockdown constraints are slowly coming to an end. The market for medical tourism will therefore be maintained in the coming days. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, major medical tourism markets, including famous medical tourism destinations such as India, China, and other developing countries, have experienced negative impacts.

The patients who can wait for treatment in other states or countries seek medical advice from the doctors virtually. The patients with severe chronic disease and need immediate care are still flying with even more care on domestic airlines. Providing communication options for the patients through texting or patient portals is solely to help the market in the pandemic situation. In various countries, government authorities are supporting medical tourism in new different ways. Investments in the medical tourism companies by the government will lucratively accelerate the growth rate of the market to the extent.
