Medical Tourism Market Revenue, Major Players, Consumer Trends, Analysis & Forecast till 2032

The availability of high-quality healthcare services in developing nations and the increasing healthcare expenses in industrialized nations are major factors that are driving the revenue growth of the market.

The global medical tourism market size was USD 5.3 Billion in 2022 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 32.51% over the forecast period, according to the latest report by Reports and Data.

Medical tourism is growing as a result of improvements in the healthcare business, such as the introduction of medical equipment and non-invasive surgery treatments. Patients can undergo medical treatments, surgeries, and operations overseas for less money than in their own countries due to the increasing rise of the medical tourism industry. In addition, higher disposable income and increased awareness of medical tourism are supporting market revenue growth.

As the prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs), and neurological disorders rises and healthcare prices in developed nations remain high, more individuals are preferring to seek medical care in poorer countries. Because of their high-quality medical facilities and highly experienced medical experts, countries such as India, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore are increasing appeal for medical tourism.

Additionally, advancements in medical technology and infrastructure in developing countries are also expected to contribute to the growth of the medical tourism market. Many countries are making substantial investments in expanding their healthcare facilities to attract patients from abroad. For example, the Indian government has launched initiatives such as the National Medical and Wellness Tourism Board and e-Medical Visa to promote medical tourism. These efforts are expected to attract a significant number of international patients, thereby increasing the demand for medical tourism in the healthcare industry.
