Indian Health Care

The Indian health care market was estimated at US$35 billion in 2007 and is expected to reach over US$70 billion by 2012 and US$145 billion by 2017. The Indian health care industry is seen to be growing at a rapid pace of 12 percent per annual in the last 4 years and is expected to become a US$280 billion industry by 2020. Rising income levels and geriatric population are all driving this growth. In addition, changing demographics, disease profiles and the shift from chronic to lifestyle diseases in the country has led to increased spending on health care delivery.

India is quickly becoming a medical tourism hub for tourists seeking quality health care at an affordable cost. With 13 Indian hospitals already been accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI) and reduced costs, access to the latest medical technology, growing compliance to international quality standards and ease of communication all work towards India’s advantage. Nearly 450,000 foreigners sought medical treatment in India last year. To cope with the growing demands, the Indian health care delivery system is striving hard to match to the Indian health care industry with the international standards.
