The size of the North American medical tourism market is estimated to grow USD 19.96 billion by 2026 from USD 8.30 billion in 2021, registering a CAGR of 19.2% during the forecast period.
Due to the presence of advanced medical technology and competence in medical services supplied in the region, North America is expected to be a significant host for medical tourists from all over the world. This is due to the region's improved medical services and the presence of highly trained medical experts with experience in a variety of areas, including neurology and cancer. Medical tourism is defined as cross-border travel to receive medical care in some form that may or may not be available in the traveler's home country. The adoption of favorable government policies encouraging the expansion of the medical infrastructure and substantial research and development (R & R & R&D) efforts are expected to propel the North American medical tourism market further.
The rise in cancer incidence due to variables such as lifestyle choices and pollutants has increased this growth. The number of cross-border visitors seeking high-quality cancer treatment is expected to rise as a result of this. A high probability of health insurance, higher service quality, and growing conformity with International Quality Standards are all contributing to the North American medical tourism market's rise in coming years. Patients can also receive comprehensive medical tourism packages from healthcare institutions and facilities, including travel-related services such as ticket booking, accommodation, and medical insurance. The proximity of the area to the United States is the primary driver of the market's expansion. Other reasons contributing to the rise of the medical tourism industry in Mexico include the availability of cheaper healthcare facilities when compared to the United States. Furthermore, the Mexican government's participation in the marketing of medical tourism has accelerated market growth. Increased R&D efforts in the field of healthcare, as well as an increase in geriatric population owing to baby boomers in North America, present lucrative opportunities for market players.
Also, an increase in the geriatric population due to baby boomers in North America and a boost in healthcare R&D activities offer market players lucrative opportunities. Besides, the cost of receiving medical treatment is still very high. While the treatments are quite reliable, it is predicted that the procedures tend to be on the pricey side. The primary health products are also quite extravagantly priced with this.
However, travel-related difficulties, communication problems, supporting documents, VISA approval issues, and lack of medical training and medical insurance un-acceptance in Mexico restrict the market growth. Uncertainty about treatment centers, the high cost of tours, and visitor safety concerns all restrict the industry's expansion to some extent.
