Lucrative Government Incentives to Continue Bolstering Opportunities
Low cost of medical services, compared to the same offered in developed economies of North America and Europe is the chief factor luring foreign medical tourists to Malaysia. Besides this, persistent government activities to boost the sector will synergize the country's medical tourism industry. "With the rising influx of medical tourists from MENA and neighboring countries, the medical tourism market in Malaysia is poised to surge exponentially in the coming years," said a lead TMR analyst.
The accelerated pace of gains witnessed in the medical tourism market in Malaysia is contributed by excellent macro-economic factors such as the increasing government programs promoting medical tourism, excellent transport facilities, and decent recuperation facilities. For instance, to boost medical tourism, the Malaysian government offers varied tax incentives, especially on the revenue generated from foreign patients. "In 2009, the government offered tax exemption of 50% on revenues earned from foreign patients, which was later increased to a whopping 100% by the end of 2010," said a lead TMR analyst. Moreover, medical tourism is considered as one of the 12 national key economic areas (NKEAs) in Malaysia, which is a chief driver of the market.
Medical Inflation Poses Threat to Market's Growth
On the downside, medical inflation recorded in 2015 and a slight drop in the number of medical travelers could have an adverse influence on the market. Besides this, the market is already witnessing challenges from low revenue generated per patient, soaring healthcare costs, and the mounting burden on Malaysia's healthcare system. Nevertheless, Malaysia is positioned as a preferred destination for medical travelers, which has potentiated the country's medical tourism market.
