5.6m. health tourists will visit Asian countries by 2012
According to the report "Asian Medical Tourism Analysis (2008-2012)", the Asian medical tourism industry is currently growing at a double-digit growth rate. The availability of world-class healthcare infrastructure and skilled medical professionals along with low cost treatments are some of the key factors that are driving the market growth. The growth momentum is expected to continue and it is expected that around 5.6 million health tourists will visit Asian countries by 2012 spending around US$ 9.1 billion.

The report covered current market performance and analysis of the key Asian countries including Thailand, Singapore, India, Malaysia, South Korea, and the Philippines. These countries have witnessed a significant development in the area of health tourism on the back of government support and private investment. It was estimated that more than 4.3 million medical tourists would visit these countries during 2010, generating combined revenue worth over US$ 6.7 billion.

The report found that India can be regarded as the most attractive medical destination in key Asian countries. India has the advantage of well-known hospital chains that offer a wide range of health services and treatments at low prices. Patients from developed countries such as, the US, Germany, and the UK prefer to visit India due to its English speaking population and attractive tourist destinations.
