Healthcare Industry in India

The Indian Brand Equity Foundation in their report on the Healthcare sector of India has stated that healthcare has become one of India's largest sectors - both in terms of revenue and employment. The industry comprises of hospitals, medical devices, clinical trials, outsourcing, telemedicine, medical tourism, health insurance and medical equipment.

The Indian healthcare industry is growing at a tremendous pace due to its strengthening coverage, services and increasing expenditure by public as well private players. The outlook for the Indian healthcare industry looks positive owing to high growth rate in almost all its segments, whether its primary healthcare, secondary and tertiary healthcare, medical equipment, diagnostics, health insurance or medical tourism. The ever growing population, increasing government expenditure on health and growing per capita income will increase the size of this industry in the years to come. Per capita income is expected to increase at a CAGR of 5.7% over 2012-18. Rising incomes mean a steady growth in the ability to access healthcare and related services.

Considering all this it is safe to state that this sector is bound to increase in the coming time and so the job profile of an Urologist will witness a lot of growth in the future.
