About the Market

As healthcare turns costlier in developed countries, the medical market in developing countries is expected to grow remarkably. Cost-effective treatments, availability of inexpensive flights, increased marketing, and online consumer information are driving the market. This has led to the emergence of several medical tourism corridors like India, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Taiwan, Mexico and Costa Rica; with India having the second largest number of accredited facilities. Chennai, Mumbai, AP, and NCR are the favored medical tourism destinations in India. The most common types of procedures pursued by patients include elective cosmetic surgery, dentistry, organ transplantation, cardiac surgery and orthopedic surgery Major corporations such as Tata, Fortis, Max, Wockhardt, and Apollo Hospitals have made significant investments in setting up modern hospitals and tourism-related services to cater to the visitors from abroad. Apollo has been a forerunner of medical tourism in India and attracts patients from Southeast Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. The group has tied up with hospitals in Mauritius, Tanzania, Bangladesh and Yemen; besides running a hospital in Sri Lanka and managing a hospital in Dubai.

About the Geography

Mexico, a USD two trillion economy (15th largest in the world), is one of the emerging countries most open to FDI. Mexico’s current government, led by President Enrique Pena Nieto emphasized on financial reforms with a long-term aim to improve competitiveness and economic growth. However, mounting organized crime, corruption and administrative inefficiency are hampering development.

The Mexican government has taken on large-scale economic reforms that aim to help ensure the safety of investment operations. In 2000, Mexico signed a free trade agreement called the ‘Global Agreement’, which focuses on commercial liberalization, political dialogue, and cooperation with the EU. Since the NAFTA came into force 22 years ago, Mexico has served as a low manufacturing cost base with direct, duty-free access to the United States. In 2014, the government came up with a national infrastructure plan to improve infrastructure for future operations. SEZs were also created to provide various incentives, trade facilities, duty-free customs benefits and easier regulatory processes.

Despite liberal government policies, there are some unique challenges like comparatively high-interest-rate for a country with a growing banking sector. Mexico’s economic stability is directly tied to the well-being of the US economy. Some sectors are reserved exclusively for Mexican nationals or State and the large size of the country presents supply chain challenges. However, Mexico offers many advantages such as labor costs comparable to Asia-based manufacturing and a strategic location between North and South America, making it attractive to firms who want to break into any of these markets. A young and skilled labor workforce coupled with government support to FDIs makes Mexico a top choice for investors.
