South Korean Medical Tourism Market Growing Stupendously

Global reputation of South Korea in plastic surgery with cost-efficient treatment turns the region to be the ultimate destination for foreigners. Besides, Korean physicians are capacitated with requisite expertise and skills in various surgical procedures, such as aesthetic and cosmetic treatments, thereby, boosting the country’s worldwide reputation altogether. Moreover, areas like biotechnology and stem cell research are considered as core competency of the country and with rising government investments in the sector, the country is poised to become a leading player in medical technologies and treatments. Considering these factors, we expect medical tourism in South Korea to grow at an impressive CAGR of 29% during 2009-2013, says our research report, “Asian Medical Tourism Analysis (2008-2012)”.

The Asian healthcare sector holds immense potential for medical tourism industry, but this potential can only be realized if clear-cut policy measures are laid down for promotion at the international level with proper functioning and participation of the government and private players in a well-coordinated manner.

Our industry experts found that, among the medical tourism destinations, six Asian countries (Thailand, Singapore, India, Malaysia, South Korea, and the Philippines) are expected to be the most potential destinations in the coming years. Further, stupendous rise in the flow of foreign patients to Korea can be attributed to improving healthcare infrastructure, increasing number of corporate hospitals (such as Escort, Apollo, Wockhardt, Raffles Hospital, Bumrungrad Hospital, Parkway), expert doctors, high success rate of complex surgeries, low-cost treatment, almost zero waiting-time, and the unique combination of treatment and vacation.
