The growth of the medical tourism industry has resulted in an increase in the number of patients traveling from their home countries to other countries abroad to receive health care. Most medical tourists traveling from developed to developing countries are motivated by the low cost of healthcare and reducing wait times or services that are not available in their home country. The APAC region strongly dominates the global medical tourism market, with a significant revenue share of 46.00% in 2020.

Advertising plays a major role in attracting customers. Like many other private industries, the medical tourism industry also needs exposure in advertising. Advertising on websites has now become the most common source of information for medical travelers. Having more accredited hospitals will further strengthen a country’s position on the world stage. The enormous growth in medical tourism is characterized by the simultaneous development of JCI accredited health centers.

The medical tourism market is highly fragmented, with many players offering healthcare services to patients seeking treatment abroad. More and more healthcare providers are entering the medical tourism industry and governments are preparing to promote their countries and their healthcare systems.

Branding and recognition of medical tourism businesses will be critical to supplier success. Most of the vast network of hospitals and huge healthcare facilities engage in mergers and acquisitions to strengthen their market position. Several partnerships are also leading to a rise in health innovations by health tourism companies.
