Medical tourism in Mexico is set to quadruple, if the ongoing boom can be leveraged further

5 August 2019

In this Global Platform video, María Teresa Solís Trejo, Former Undersecretary for Planning and Tourism Policy, and Carlos Pantoja, Partner, Deloitte discuss the considerable advantages that Mexico has to offer to medical tourists. Thanks to a combination of competitive prices and high-quality services, in 2017 medical tourism generated $3.5bn in income. This number could increase four-fold by 2030 if the right initiatives are put in place and private sector involvement expands. In addition to more conventional medical services, young people today come to Mexico looking for wellness-orientated services – another space that could yield significant returns going forward.

Transcript:

International tourism to Mexico has been increasing consistently in recent years, reaching double-digit figures and positioning Mexico in sixth place internationally.

As for medical tourism, it has grown organically – that is, without the existence of integrated national strategies to attract this type of tourism. It is estimated that 1.5m international medical tourists came to our country in 2017. Economically speaking, medical tourism alone represented an income of $3.5bn in 2017, and we estimate that, with the right strategies, this could quadruple by 2030, to reach $13.8bn.
