According to data from the Indian Institute of Public Administration (IIPA), approximately 697,453 medical tourists visited India in 2019 alone for medical treatment and the number is expected to rapidly grow in the post-pandemic era. India is currently the third-largest medical value tourism destination in the world and is known for its multicultural society, hospitality, yoga & ayurveda. Due to comparatively lower administrative and living costs, India is also one of the most affordable and low-cost healthcare providers without any compromise on quality of services. With an excellent pool of globally acclaimed, certified and experienced doctors and healthcare providers treating millions of patients leveraging high-end technology, India's medical value tourism industry is only expected to grow further in 2023. By 2030, India alone is predicted to treat more than three million foreign patients, which is four times the number of patients the country can currently handle.
