The healthcare & general services industry:

Global healthcare expenditures are expected to continue to rise as spending is projected to increase at an annual rate of 5.4% between 2017-2022, from US$ 7.724 trillion to US$ 10.059 trillion. The emergence of personalised medicine, increased use of technologies, entry of disruptive and non-traditional competitors, the demand for expanded care delivery sites, and revamped payment models are all impacting the financial performance of the healthcare ecosystem. Current Healthcare Expenditure (CHE) in the GCC is projected to reach US$ 104.6 billion in 2022, registering a CAGR of 6.6% from an estimated US$ 76.1 billion in 2017. An Alpen Capital report highlighted that the UAE and Oman are likely to witness growth rates of above 9 per cent in the coming years, in anticipation of a fast-growing population, implementation of mandatory health insurance and above regional average medical inflation rates.

Amidst an ageing and expanding population, and the increasing prevalence of lifestyle diseases, the healthcare sector is fast emerging as a priority for Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries as they work to diversify their economies away from a reliance on oil production.


The report will focus on infrastructure investments and how customer centricity will play an increasingly important role in the evolution of the region’s healthcare industry with patient experience becoming a priority for both public and private players. Major developments in technology, an influx of medical tourists, as well as changing patient needs are also emerging as major drivers for the bourgeoning GCC healthcare landscape.
