MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN, USA, April 18, 2022 / — According to a market report published by Sheer Analytics and Insights, the total medical tourism market was valued at $65.5 billion in 2021 and it is expected to reach $250.2 billion at a CAGR of 12.9% during the forecast period. There are several advantages such as healthcare, innovative medicines, modern technologies and devices, better hospitality and personalized care that are driving the growth of the global medical tourism market and it is also expected to witness rapid growth over the course of the forecast period. Moreover, the growing demand for certain methods, which are not covered by insurance, such as fertility treatments, dental reconstruction and cosmetic surgery, is also expected to boost the market. Most methods of cosmetic surgery are not covered by medical insurance and medical aid plans; hence, it is paid out of an individual’s pocket as the lower costs of medical treatments attract foreign patients. They spend their money to get to their destination and get treatment at a cheaper price. In this way, the patient can indulge in leisure activities in the country of destination.

However, cheaper treatment options along with better hospitality are major factors responsible for the growth of the medical tourism market across the globe.
