Fort Collins, Colorado, May 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Access to premium quality medical treatment will drive the need for medical tourism in the forecast period.

The rise in healthcare costs is a primary driver propelling the expansion of the medical tourism market. Patients from developed nations like the United States, the United Kingdom, and various European countries opt to travel to developing nations for medical services primarily due to the significantly lower treatment expenses. For example, while the cost of Heart Bypass (CABG) surgery in the US ranges from USD 20,000 to USD 40,000, in India, it amounts to approximately USD 4000. Similarly, the cost of heart valve replacement surgery in the U.S. totals around USD 59,000, whereas in India, it's approximately USD 10,000. Such substantial cost disparities entice patients from overseas to seek medical care in developing countries.

Furthermore, the caliber of healthcare offered abroad is another driving force behind the growth of medical tourism. Many destinations catering to medical tourists, including South Korea, Japan, Germany, Norway, Sweden, and various European nations, boast high-quality healthcare services within their hospitals. According to OECD health data, Norway has the world's best healthcare system, followed by the Netherlands and Australia. These countries' healthcare facilities are affordable and deliver prompt and superior care processes, attracting patients seeking quality medical treatment at reasonable costs.
