The Indian healthcare market is one of the prominent contributors to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) having attracted large number of players- domestic as well as international – during the past few years. Highly qualified doctors and scientists, state-of-the-art technology and low costs have helped India become an attractive global destination for medical tourism, clinical studies, and research and development (R&D) programs. This sector offers massive growth potential and a chance to capitalise on its expansion, especially as the country sees a rise in the incidence of lifestyle-related diseases. A growing elderly population paired with a rise in income levels also emphasise the need for better medical facilities in the country. The market size of health sector is about US$ 5,000 Cr-a-year & is growing rapidly and is now the second-largest service- sector employer in the country, providing jobs to about 45 lakhs people directly or indirectly. According to Fitch ratings agency, the Indian healthcare sectors will double its size to US$ 10,000 Cr by 2015 and by 2020 - the Indian healthcare industry is estimated to be worth US$ 27,560 Cr. Currently, only 8.00 % of India’s GDP is spent on healthcare. India needs to spend at least US$ 80 billion more in the next five years to meet targets. Apollo Hospitals Enterprise Ltd and University College London (UCL) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to collaborate their efforts in training and clinical research. The strategic partnership would aim to promote and conduct educational and research initiatives in health sciences. As per the data released by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), the drugs and pharmaceuticals sector has attracted 12 foreign direct investments (FDI) worth US$ 2.4 billion between April 2000 and April 2011, while hospitals and diagnostic centre have received FDI worth US$ 1.03 billion in the same period. The Indian medical tourism industry is presently at a nascent stage, but has an enormous potential for future growth and development on the back of low cost range of treatments provided by the country. According to a global report India’s share in the global medical tourism industry will reach around 3 % by the end of 2013. The report states that medical tourism is expected to generate revenue around US$ 3 billion by 2013, growing at a CAGR of around 26 % during 2011–2013. The number of medical tourists is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 19 % during the forecast period to reach 1.3 million by 2013.
