Global Medical Tourism Market Trends And Strategies
2 Jul, 2020
The global medical tourism market is expected to decline from $37.72 billion in 2019 to $19.8 billion in 2020 at a rate of -47.5%. The decline is mainly due to the COVID-19 outbreak that has led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, restriction on cross-border travel and the closure of industries and other commercial activities. The ban on cross-border travel reduces the number of international patients, impacting the market. The market is expected to recover and reach $33.54 billion in 2023 at a rate of 19.2%. The high healthcare cost in developed countries is driving growth in the medical tourism market as developing countries are able to provide cheaper treatment. However, the coronavirus outbreak and travel bans are expected to restrict the growth of the medical tourism industry in the near future.
The medical tourism market includes revenues generated by healthcare service providers by diagnosing and treating patients who travel across international borders to obtain medical treatment. Patients usually travel from countries lacking healthcare infrastructure or having high healthcare costs to major medical centers in developing countries.
