Healthcare Tourism Asia Q4 2012
PRLog - Oct. 17, 2012 - SYDNEY, Australia -- IBI Partners undertook a detailed study investigating healthcare tourism industry across the Asia Pacific region, identifying the main source markets for patients, their size and value, in addition to the main destination markets for patients, their size and value.

It was found that during 2012, there will be overall growth of 13% in the number of international patients from within the Asia Pacific region, with the largest source countries being Indonesia, China and the Philippines, and the largest destination countries being India, Thailand and Singapore.

The number of patients travelling to the Asia Pacific region for healthcare from other regions  is forecast to increase by 17% in 2013, with the largest patient numbers coming from the Middle East, followed by Europe and North America, with the lower cost of treatment and immediacy of treatment being the main draw-cards.

Several countries in the Asia Pacific region are investing in creating competitive healthcare tourism industries. The Singaporean government has been very successful over the last decade in developing both the infrastructure and marketing operations to position the country as a healthcare tourism destination. Both Malaysia and Thailand are now endeavouring to emulate Singapore's success by developing and promoting their healthcare tourism industry through significant government assistance.
