While countries such as Thailand, India, and Malaysia have already become key regions for medical tourists, several new countries like UAE and Taiwan are becoming new players in the global medical tourism industry.

Growing demand for specialized surgeries such as breast augmentation, dermabrasion, and rhinoplasty and better pricing of such cosmetic surgeries in these countries will further fuel the growth of medical tourism market during the forecast period.
