High Quality Treatments at Low Costs Driving the Medical Tourism Market in India

Mumbai, India – Netscribes (India) Pvt. Ltd., a knowledge consulting solutions company, announces the launch of the report “Medical Tourism Market in India”. The Indian medical tourism market is growing steadily owing to the reputation of healthcare facilities in the country being of qualities comparable to developed countries and available at costs that are several times lower than the latter. Currently, the market is witnessing heavy inflow of international patients and this is expected to increase in coming years.

Increase in the inflow of foreign patients is resulting from the fact that people from developed countries are shedding the once popular notion of developing countries being providers of poor healthcare services, and accepting the idea of getting high quality treatment at low costs from such countries. Due to the ever increasing target population, the market offers huge prospects for current and potential players to grow and lucratively serve the market.
