The Top 5 Emerging Medical Tourism Industries According to Fast Market Research

Are these the countries where you'll get medical care in the future?
One thing I learned from a professional journalist is to always look for the source. So let's start with that. Who is Fast Market Research?

According to their page, they are an online aggregator and distributor of market research and business information. As their name implies, they sell market and business research reports. They are based in the United States. I couldn't find any reviews about them, but they certainly have reports for all types of industries in several countries.

As usual, I didn't spend one thousand dollars on the report, but they did mention what the five emerging medical industries are. This means the countries with the highest growth and growth potential in the medical tourism industry. Note that this is different from the countries with the biggest medical tourism industries. For example, the US is third when it comes to the size of its medical tourism industry. However, it doesn't make it to the top 5 for growth or growth potential, at least according to Fast Market Research.

So what are the countries that rank the highest in medical tourism industry potential?

1. South Africa
2. Brazil
3. China
4. India
5. Mexico

Note that the order of the countries doesn't mean anything. It's not that South Africa has more potential than Brazil. It's just the order they appear in the table of contents. As I said, because of the price, I didn't read the report. But if you want to buy the report, you can find it here.

Out of these countries, the only surprise to me is South Africa. But what do you think? Tell me in the comments.

If you're considering traveling to Mexico for healthcare or retiring in Mexico, you may want to  get yourself a copy of The English's Speaker's Guide to Doctors and Hospitals in Mexico in order to find a good doctor or hospital in the main towns and cities of Mexico, or The English Speaker's Guide to Medical Care in Mexico, to understand how the Mexican healthcare system works.
