Impact of COVID-19

Rising cases of coronavirus across the globe have compelled the governments to enforce lockdown and seize the import-export of medical supplies. The shortage of personal protective equipment has severely impacted the medical tourism market. China has a million outbound medical tourists and wellness tourists, followed by the U.S., South Korea, and Japan. South Korea annually attracts nearly 350,000 medical visitors, with one in three arriving from China. Iran also receives 350,000 medical tourists outside SE Asia, with 90% originating from local countries and the Gulf. Italy has a limited inbound number of medical tourists, which are about 600,000.

Medical travel consultants, start-ups, and small agencies have limited budgets and cash flow and are sensitive towards fluctuations caused due to the pandemic. Several medical travel events, especially the ones scheduled during the first six months of 2020, have been cancelled or postponed, further hampering the market growth.
