UAE Hospital market is anticipated to grow at a robust CAGR during the forecast period, 2023-2027. Developing healthcare infrastructure and growing investments, and supportive policies by leading authorities are the key factors driving the growth of the UAE hospital market. Also, the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and the growing geriatric population are accelerating the demand for the construction of quality healthcare centers in the country.

Increasing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases Drives the Market Demand

The rise in the adoption of a sedentary lifestyle and the high consumption rate of tobacco and processed as well as junk food items are giving rise to several diseases. The majority of deaths in the country are caused by chronic lifestyle-induced diseases such as coronary and cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hypertension, and cancer.

UAE is among the top countries witnessing a massive number of patients suffering from obesity, diabetes, and other cardiovascular diseases. Smoking is responsible for one in eight deaths among men and has the highest morbidity rate in GCC. Adoption of poor lifestyle habits by the young population by younger generations of Emiratis suggests that the health-related problems are expected to sustain for longer durations.

The population is growing at a rapid rate, and the UAE’s population is growing to age and are in dire need of quality healthcare services. The geriatric population was 1.26% of the total population in 2020, and the share is growing, which is expected to bolster the demand for geriatric care and healthcare services in the country. The unhealthy lifestyle of consumers, the growing old age population, and the increasing occurrence of lifestyle-related diseases are expected to propel the demand for the UAE Hospital market in the next five years.

Rise in Private-public partnerships in Healthcare Industry Supports the Market Demand

In 2019, UAE healthcare expenditure contributed 4.27% of GDP. The government is making efforts to diversify the economy and pursue new revenue-generating opportunities to reduce the economy's dependence on the oil & gas industry. Due to the fluctuations in crude oil prices, the government is promoting private sector involvement to boost the healthcare sector funding.

Public-private partnerships are being promoted, and insurance coverage is made mandatory, which is expected to garner the attention of private players to make high-end investments for the development of the healthcare sector. An increase in health-conscious people in the country is fueling the demand for preventive care services, which is expected to bolster the construction of more hospitals to meet the growing requirements from all over the country.

Rising Medical Tourism Industry Supports the Market Growth

The government is promoting the growth of the medical tourism sector to create an alternative income source for the country and is developing quality hospitals and clinics to attract the global population. According to Medical Tourism Index, Abu Dhabi and Dubai will be among the top 10 medical tourism destinations in the world in 2021.

The Medical Tourism Association (MTA) signed a memorandum with the Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi in October 2018, which includes the opening of the medical tourism association's first office in Abu Dhabi as well as hosting of global healthcare congress and world medical tourism in Abu Dhabi next year. It also aims to promote Abu Dhabi as a medical tourist destination in Russia, China, and GCC, focusing on special departments including oncology, cardiology, and executive screenings.
