Market Overview

The hospital market size in India recorded a substantial value of USD 66.77 billion in FY2021, with an anticipated steady CAGR of 8.32% over the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the escalating burden of an aging population, which is expected to drive hospitalization rates. Additionally, the burgeoning medical tourism sector in India plays a pivotal role in propelling market growth. Patients from various countries travel to India to access high-quality healthcare services at a more affordable cost. India ranked 10th among the top 40 medical tourism destinations worldwide, with a medical tourism index of 69.80. Despite these positive factors, challenges such as the high cost of hospital construction and maintenance, along with a high attrition rate among healthcare staff, could potentially impede market growth through FY2027.

Market Drivers

Factors Fuelling Indian Hospital’s Industry Growth

  1. Aging Population: The aging demographic in India is susceptible to various health issues and injuries, leading to increased hospitalization rates.
  2. Medical Tourism: India's reputation as a medical tourism hub attracts patients from abroad, boosting the country's healthcare industry.
  3. Cost-Effective Healthcare: India's healthcare services are known for their affordability, making them attractive to both domestic and international patients.

Market Challenges

Factors Impeding Growth of Hospital Industry in India

  1. High Construction Costs: Building and maintaining hospitals in India can be cost-prohibitive, limiting market expansion.
  2. Healthcare Staff Attrition: A high attrition rate of doctors and nurses (around 40-42%) poses challenges in workforce allocation and planning, potentially slowing market growth.

Market Segmentation

The India hospital market is categorized into several key segments:

  1. Ownership: Hospitals can be categorized as public, private, or public-private partnerships (PPPs).
  2. Type: Hospitals fall into the categories of general, multi-specialty, or specialty hospitals.
  3. Bed Capacity: Hospitals are further classified by bed capacity, including up to 100 beds, 101-300 beds, 301-700 beds, and above 700 beds. Notably, smaller hospitals with up to 100 beds dominate the market, especially in rural and suburban areas. However, the COVID-19 pandemic and a shortage of hospital beds have created significant demand for larger hospitals with 101-300 and 301-700 beds.
  4. Type of Services: Hospitals provide either in-patient or out-patient services. In-patient services, which involve hospitalization, have been more popular, but out-patient services are gaining traction due to the rise of multi-specialty hospital chains and the cost-effectiveness of outpatient care.
