Global Medical Tourism Market-2019-2026

Market Overview:

The global medical tourism market is expected to prosper at a considerable rate during the forecast period. High availability of advantages, such as improved healthcare, advanced healthcare, and surgical technologies, innovative and effective medicines, technically advanced medical equipment, better treatment and hospitality, and high-quality and reliable personalized care are some major factors driving the medical tourism market. Other aspects motivating the medical tourism growth include improved healthcare Insurance policies and benefits, coupled with rising demand for the specialized treatments that are not available in the local regions, such as fertility treatment, gender reassignment surgeries, dental reconstruction, and cosmetic/plastic surgery.

Most cosmetic/plastic surgery procedures are considered elective and therefore not covered under any kind of medical insurance. As these specialized surgeries are not covered by most medical benefit plans and are paid out of consumer pockets, lower treatment costs offered by the surgeons in other countries increase the appeal for foreign clients. Customers prefer travelling to the countries/cities where these treatments are performed at much cheaper rates. The availability of inexpensive medication alternatives along with the improved quality of care is the fundamental factor driving demand for offshore medical tourism. Convenient availability of experienced healthcare professionals and reduced treatment expenses are further strengthening the demand in the medical tourism market.

People prefer travelling to Thailand for getting high-quality cosmetic and bariatric treatments. Common surgeries performed in this region include breast reduction and augmentation, laser tattoo removal, tummy tuck, buttock implants, liposuction, Botox, and hair transplant. On the other hand, surgical procedures, such as hip replacement, knee replacement, and gastric bypass are performed better in India as compared to other developed countries, including the U.S. and U.K. The surgeons in this region are highly skilled to perform these surgical procedures effectively. Factors like effective treatment for chronic diseases, the cost-effectiveness of surgical procedures, and improved quality of healthcare are expected to drive the global medical tourism market.
