Why Dubai?

High-tech medical infrastructure and a rising number of public and private healthcare companies make Dubai a major hub for the global healthcare industry. A zero-tax regime, conducive policies, and incentives are some of the key factors strengthening the ease of doing business in the city to reinforce it as an ideal investment destination.

  • One of the key drivers of UAE healthcare growth is medical tourism. In 2021, Dubai rose to become one of the top 10 medical tourism destinations in the world.
  • Dubai announced a 12-year plan to reshape its healthcare system, including 3 billion AED [$820 million] revamp of Rashid Hospital, 40 new primary healthcare centers, and three new hospitals.
  • Current Healthcare Expenditure (CHE) in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) was projected to reach US$104.6 billion in 2022. Dubai is ideally placed to tap into a UAE market that boasts an average of US$1,200 in healthcare spending per capita.
  • The Dubai Health Strategy emphasises on medical infrastructure development, private-public sector innovation, and medical tourism.
  • Dubai is home to the world’s largest medical-free zone. Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), hosts 160 clinical partners including hospitals, outpatient medical centers, and diagnostic laboratories across 150+ specialties with licensed professionals from almost 90 countries.
  • Dubai Science Park (DSP) is the region’s first free zone serving the entire value chain of the science sector.
  • According to reports, the market value of Dubai’s pharmaceutical industry is set to grow to US$6.8 billion by 2025 from US$2.6 billion currently.
  • Dubai is developing as an R&D cradle for health-tech, precision medicine, and biotechnology.
