The Indian healthcare sector is expected to register a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.9 per cent during 2015-20 to US$ 280 billion. Rising income level, greater health awareness, increased precedence of lifestyle diseases and improved access to insurance would be the key contributors to growth.

The private sector has emerged as a vibrant force in India's healthcare industry, lending it both national and international repute. It accounts for almost 74 per cent of the country’s total healthcare expenditure. Telemedicine is a fast-emerging trend in India; major hospitals (Apollo, AIIMS, Narayana Hrudayalaya) have adopted telemedicine services and entered into a number of public-private partnerships (PPP).The telemedicine market in India is valued at US$ 7.5 million currently and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 20 per cent to reach US$ 18.7 million by 2017. Further, presence of world-class hospitals and skilled medical professionals has strengthened India’s position as a preferred destination for medical tourism. During January-November 2016, a total of 82 health technology companies have raised about US$ 80 million.

The Government of India aims to develop India as a global healthcare hub. It has created the National Health Mission (NHM) for providing effective healthcare to both the urban and rural population. The Government is also providing policy support in the form of reduced excise and customs duty, and exemption in service tax, to support growth in healthcare.

Investment in healthcare infrastructure is set to rise, benefiting both 'hard' (hospitals) and 'soft' (R&D, education) infrastructure.
