The move towards quality healthcare, increase in demand for preventive care and digital health will contribute to a massive 60 percent growth of the healthcare sector in the UAE in five years. The current AED 64 billion (US$ 17 billion) market will surge to over AED 103 billion (US$ 28 billion) in 2021, driven by a shift in demand for preventive care, a rise in specialist medical services, more efficiently integrated healthcare solutions, as well as the high growth potential within specific medical device and pharmaceutical sub-sectors. Medical tourism and mandatory insurance will also contribute to the sector’s growth.
