Rising Number of Chronic Diseases Demanding Advanced Treatments to Fuel the Market
The oncology and cardiovascular segments held a majority share of the market in the past years due to the high prevalence of heart diseases across the globe. Moreover, the rising number of chronic diseases is demanding improved treatment and diagnosis at low prices. Nonetheless, the orthopedics treatment segment is projected to gain the fastest growth due to the growing geriatric population, rising cases of orthopedic disorders, the need for improved procedures, and the increasing number of spinal operations. The cost of these common disorders is significantly high in most countries, due to which the residents prefer getting treated in the abroad countries to save money and dodge waiting time. Also, medical tourism offers extraordinary orthopedic services to patients, thereby propelling the segment growth.

Increasing Number of Private Healthcare Service Providers to Support the Market Growth
By service provider, the public provider segment is projected to witness sluggish growth due to low funding for medical treatment in a few countries. For instance, the Canadian public increasingly prefers private providers of health since a wide range of treatments are either not funded or not available in public hospitals. Nevertheless, the private segment is expected to dominate the market in the past years and is expected to lead in the future as well due to the growing number of private service providers that proficiently deliver exceptional medical treatments and are still attracting multiple tourists.

Access to a Wide Range of Improved Treatments to Support the Market Growth in Asia-Pacific
Asia Pacific is projected to register a majority share of the market owing to the easy availability of improved treatment options in the developing nations like Thailand, Malaysia, India, and Singapore. Other drivers of the market in Asia Pacific includes the growing number of improved healthcare infrastructure, rising number of private hospitals, and reasonably priced treatments available in these economies. North America held a considerable share of the market in the former years. Medical tourism in the United States is an attraction for patients to avail affordable treatments, helping them to significant cost savings for their families. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing region majorly due to the increasing number of patients availing medical treatment from its countries. This is essentially due to the increasing availability of cost-effective facilities in the region.
