It tracks the global North America Outbound Medical Tourism Services market across key regions, and offers in-depth commentary and accurate quantitative insights. The study also includes incisive competitive landscape analysis, and provides key recommendations to market players on winning imperatives and successful strategies.

Outbound medical tourism in North America is rising substantially as a result of an increasing number of people from the region opting for cross border treatment. Cross border countries offer medical treatments at significantly low costs. According to a 2014 International Medical Tourism Journal study, the cost of treatment in the U.S. is 85% higher than that offered in countries like India, Mexico, etc. For instance, treatments such as knee replacement costing around US$ 35,000 to US$ 60,000 in the U.S. cost less than US$ 20,000 in Costa Rica and India, inclusive of lodging and airfare costs. This is prominently leading to a rise in potential for the North America outbound medical tourism services market. In terms of revenue, the North America outbound medical tourism services market is projected to register a CAGR of 25.5% during the forecast period and is expected to be valued at US$ 150.36 Bn by the end of 2026.

Rising patient preference for outbound medical services expected to boost market growth

Rising rate of health insurance premiums, high cost of medical treatments in the U.S, and parallel tourism with medical treatment are some of the main factors anticipated to drive revenue growth of the North America outbound medical tourism services market over the forecast period (2016 – 2026). Growth of the North America outbound medical tourism services market is further driven by a large ageing baby boomer population and a large uninsured population, long waiting time for appointments with specialists in the U.S, and an increasing preference for non-conventional treatment options.

However, lack of effective follow-up care on returning home, rampant medical malpractices in medical tourism destinations, proliferation of superbugs in medical tourism destinations, problems associated with language barriers, and privacy concerns are some of the challenges anticipated to restrict market growth of the North America outbound medical tourism services market over the forecast period.
