Based on region, Asia Pacific is the dominating and the fastest-growing market in the global tourism market. This can be attributed to the availability of cheap air transport and availability of specialized, advanced, and affordable treatments of various chronic diseases. Furthermore, the availability of cheap cosmetic surgery and cosmetic treatment facilities is boosting the growth of the medical tourism in this region. Cosmetics treatment is not covered in the healthcare policies and hence, people are increasingly preferring Asia Pacific for the availability of cheap cosmetic treatments. Further, the increasing government initiatives to promote tourism in the region coupled with the rising investments for the development of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure is expected to contribute exponentially towards the market growth in the forthcoming years. The countries such as Thailand, Singapore, India, and China are the major destinations for the medical tourists owing to the availability of advanced medical technologies at affordable prices. The rising burden of diseases in the developed regions like North America and Europe is attracting medical tourists in the Asia Pacific region.

The medial tourism market is highly dependent of the foreign policies, regulations, and geo-political relations between countries that may have a negative impact on the growth of the medical tourism market. Further, the availability of advanced treatment at higher costs in the regions like Europe and North America may hinder the market growth during the forecast period.

The rapid development of various new technologies and increasing investments in the research activities to develop improved and effective medicines and medical devices is expected to present a huge growth opportunity for the market players in the foreseeable future. For instance, the development of targeted therapy, gene-targeted therapy, laser treatment, and various other advanced treatments are the major growth drivers of the global medical treatment market.

The recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected the medical tourism market. Almost all the countries on this planet sealed their borders and shut down their destinations for the tourists. Most of the scheduled medical tourism were postponed or delayed for an indefinite time period. Further, disruptions in the supply chain resulted in the shortages of medicines and medical devices owing to the lack of raw materials. Hence, such pandemics may have a devastating effect on the market in the forthcoming years.

Based on the type, the cancer segment dominated the global medical tourism market. This is simply attributed to the huge demand for the cancer treatment at cheaper costs. Furthermore, the prevalence of cancer is on the rise among the global population.According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, around 19.3 million new cancer cases and around 10 million cancer related deaths were reported in the year 2020, across the globe. Prevalence of breast cancer in the female population is surging, accounting for around 11.7% of the new cancer cases followed by the lungs cancer that accounted for 11.4% and colorectal cancer accounted for 10.0% in 2020. Hence, the availability of advanced treatment for cancer is expected to drive the segment growth and is estimated to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period.

The market is moderately fragmented with the presence of several local companies. These market players are striving to gain higher market share by adopting strategies, such as investments, partnerships, and acquisitions & mergers. Companies are also spending on the development of improved products. Moreover, they are also focusing on maintaining competitive pricing.
