Medical tourism, also called health tourism or medical travel, is a rapidly growing industry catering to patients who travel across national borders to receive medical treatments. In Asia, medical tourism has emerged as one of the fastest growing segments. Low cost and waiting time of medical treatments as compared to western countries, coupled with quality health services provided in Asian countries make them preferred destination for the medical travelers. With the governments’ support and improving medical infrastructure of Asian countries, the medical tourism market of Asia is anticipated to post a CAGR of around 26.5% during 2013 to 2015, says RNCOS in its latest report “Asian Medical Tourism Market Forecast to 2015”.
