Medical Tourism Market Trends:

Market Drivers

The high cost of healthcare in developed countries is expected to be a major driver of market growth in developing countries. The rising cost of healthcare in wealthy countries is putting stress on both patients and their doctors. Government rules on the healthcare sector cause delays in the procedures in several nations. As a result, many people are opting to seek treatment in foreign countries. The globe is getting closer to adopting better medical facilities for value-based care as a result of the proliferation of technical breakthroughs in the healthcare business, such as medical equipment, surgical procedures, wearables, linked healthcare, etc. Telemedicine, telehealth, and other forms of distance medical consultation are making high-quality medical treatment accessible to people all over the world.

Market expansion is a result of the cheaper cost of healthcare in developing countries compared to developed countries. As a result of the aforementioned, the medical tourism market is expected to grow throughout the predicted period. Market growth over the forecast period is expected to be hampered, however, by issues related to patient follow-up, post-procedure complications, and the transfer of medical records. As a result, the global medical tourism market’s CAGR has increased in recent years due to these factors. However, the availability of low-cost treatment options and high-quality medical services in tourist destinations are also contributing to the expansion of the Medical Tourism business. As a result, the growing number of operations can be partially attributed to the rise in international medical tourism to destinations like India and Thailand. In addition, the declining price of sophisticated surgical procedures is a major contributor to the expansion of the market.

Market Restraints

Travel infrastructure between countries is the single most important factor in medical tourism. However, market expansion is hampered by pandemics and governments that set stringent rules on their citizens seeking medical treatment overseas.

COVID-19 Analysis:

As a result of the 2019 COVID-19 pandemic, stricter measures have been implemented to prevent the spread of the contagious virus. As borders were sealed off, a dramatic decrease in medical tourists was seen. An unforeseen and astounding effect of the COVID-19 epidemic has been a worldwide drop in demand for medical tourism services. This market’s demand and growth are responsible for the unexpected increase in CAGR; once the pandemic is ended, the market will recover to pre-pandemic levels. Additionally, due to hospitals and service providers only allowing necessary and emergency procedures, all non-emergency procedures such as cosmetic dentistry and other elective procedures, were shut down. In March of 2020, for instance, the government of India decided that, in light of the pandemic, all elective procedures that were not deemed absolutely necessary would be put on hold. As a result, the number of people seeking medical care abroad has decreased as a direct result of the implementation of stringent measures all over the world.

Medical Tourism Market Segmentation:
