International investors are investing in healthcare delivery in APAC, specially in India and China, as they are seeking a higher return on investment. Private equity has played a significant role in the expansion of private healthcare in APAC. For instance, the number of PE-fund led investments in the healthcare sector in the year 2014 grew at more than 􂀀% compared to the previous year to reach 􂀀 deals.

Growth in the private hospital industry is primarily driven by the increasing disease burden and ageing population.

Key growth restraints in the private hospital industry are shortage of qualified medical personnel, lack of private medical insurance, and uneven distribution of healthcare facilities across geographies.

Most investment and consolidation projects in the private hospital industry are by real estate investment trusts and private equity firms and some by pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers.

Innovative business models, increased operational efficiency and economies of scale have contributed to the spectacular financial performance of private hospital chains, which grew at a healthy double digit growth rate in 2013.
