Medical tourism is one of the most dynamically growing industries today. Considered to be the direct impact of globalisation of healthcare, medical tourism certainly exhibits strong growth potential globally. However, based on FMI’s research, the market of medical tourism is expected to concentrate within most of the emerging economies of the world.\n\nAs developing nations are increasingly heading toward technological advancement and quality services in the medical and healthcare sector, the global medical tourism market is anticipated to witness robust growth over 2014-2020, predominantly in Asian countries.\n\nThe top treatments people travel abroad for, include cancer therapy, cardiovascular surgeries, orthopaedic treatments, dentistry, cosmetic surgeries, reproductive treatments, weight loss therapies, health screenings, and medical tests and scans. In severe cases, a sizeable patient population also seeks second opinion from specialist doctors out of their countries.
Medical tourism is a popular trend that has come about due to advances in the field of medical
technology, growing number of patients and high level of expertise in the medical field. Simply
explained, people travelling from their home country to another country with the intention to
secure medical treatment, which might not be available in their homeland, is known as medical
tourism. Segments such as cosmetic surgery, dental care, fertility treatment, cardiology and
cardiac surgery are the key promoters of medical tourism. Medical tourism has made it easy for
patients to travel to other countries and get much-needed medical treatment and undergo
surgeries. On the other hand, this does have some disadvantages such as low quality medical
treatment. Also people from developed and advanced economies travel to emerging nations,
thus affecting the revenue generation in their respective nation, for instance approximately 1
million Americans travelled outside the US for medical treatment in 2014.
