Much is said and written about the size of the market, about the exponential growth and how “global healthcare” is going to transform the world. But there is often little hard fact, and very few statistics to support what is claimed.
The Medical Tourism Climate Survey 2016 is undertaken by the International Medical Travel Journal, in cooperation with the International Medical Travel Exhibition and Conference (IMTEC 2016) run by Informa Life Sciences. We canvassed the views of over 160 clinics, hospitals and medical tourism businesses in 27 countries about the current market for medical tourism and their expectations for the future.
The report highlights the continuing widespread optimism about the future of medical tourism, with travel for cancer treatment and cosmetic surgery expected to be the biggest growth areas. The results suggest that not only is the market currently growing but that it will continue to do so for the next five years or more.
