Singapore Medical Tourist Arrivals and Spending Forecast To 2020

Singapore Medical Tourism Market - Overview

Singapore is Asia’s leading medical hub providing internationally accredited and patient-centriccare. International patients come to Singapore each year for a whole range of medical care from health screenings to high-end surgical procedures in specialties such as cardiology, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, organ transplants, orthopedics, and pediatrics. However in recent years, Singapore is finding it harder to retain its title as the region's top medical tourism destination, as patient’s eye better value for money in neighboring countries such as Thailand, Malaysia and India. The government support for medical tourism in Singapore has also waned in couple of years. It will be increasingly difficult for Singapore to maintain its position as the leading medical-tourism hub in South-east Asia, given the high cost of medical treatment and strength of the Singapore dollar.

Among the top source market for Singapore Medical Tourism, Indonesia topped the list as all other countries combined market share is lower than that of Indonesia alone. Malaysia is standing at the second spot in terms of medical tourist arrivals in Singapore in 2014. China and India are competing closely to grab a pie of the medical tourist arrivals to Singapore.
