The Government and health regulatory authorities in Saudi Arabia have been taking keen interest in the development of the country’s healthcare scenario. The major concern for the authorities has been enhancing the infrastructural process of health services in the country in order to improve their accessibility to the people. Considering the development plan and budgetary allocation made by the Government towards healthcare, it is safe to say that Saudi Arabia is moving fast towards achieving its aims.

According to our new research report, “Saudi Arabian Healthcare Market Forecast to 2012”, it is expected that the growth of the healthcare industry in the near future will be driven by various factors, including rapidly increasing population, rising prevalence of lifestyle and infectious diseases, and the lack of internationally accredited healthcare infrastructure. The pharma industry is expected to be one of the highly prolific healthcare sectors, estimated to grow at a CAGR of around 6.6% during 2011-2013. The country faces grim issues because of lifestyle diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. We have undertaken an extensive research and analysis on various segments of the Saudi Arabia healthcare market, which includes the Hospitals Services Industry, Pharmaceutical Industry, and Medical Devices Industry.

The baseline for optimistic future outlook of Saudi Arabia healthcare industry is the focus of the government and private players on the innovation and latest technology. Leading IT companies are heading towards the Kingdom to test new devices and procedures designed to streamline hospital procedures and improve patient care. In addition, new insurance laws that have been set up by the government mandates drug coverage, which further rises the spending to higher levels. Further, demand for hospitals and hospital beds is anticipated to rise during the next few years as the existing infrastructure is inadequate to deal with rising number of health complications in all sections of the society and every age group people. To meet the demand, the government is planning to open new hospitals in the country.
