Medical tourism is growing everywhere and will continue to grow rapidly, driven by price?

Medical tourism is mainly a myth and not growing?

These two contrary views have had much coverage but are both simplistic and wrong.

The latest report ‘Medical Tourism Facts and Figures 2014' is a good counterpoint to those who would have you believe that the market is growing very fast everywhere. This research suggests that there is growth, but some countries are increasing business, others are static and others are seeing less business.

It is very much a regional business, and there is a huge move away from price competition to competition on quality, niches and even luxury.

Malaysia, Thailand and South Korea are examples where government support has proved very successful at increasing business year on year, while places like India where governments have done little have seen numbers fall.

The global price driven model is replaced by a regional one based on culture, quality, and availability.

Six years since the first Facts and Figures report- the industry has moved on and become more professional-learning from successes and failures.
