China high End outbound Medical Tourism Market

While the availability of medical care is a subject of great debate in the United States, the quality of medical care offered generally is not. Then, when the stomach cancer of Chinese citizen Guo Shushi was incurable in China and quickly killed him, Guo, with the help of a company that specializes in helping Chinese clients seek medical treatment abroad, was in Dana Farber, in Boston, who was being treated with an immunotherapy drug. available in China. "When I arrived, I could feel how big the gap was," Mr. Guo said of the difference in care. However, closing the gap was not cheap; in general, Guo paid $ 220,000 out of pocket to survive stomach cancer.

It is known that China's health care system is plagued with problems of access (and quality problems), but it seems that these problems affect less and less the upper class of China, since they can seek foreign treatment for medical problems.
Medical tourism is not a new idea, although in the past it was associated with medical tourists from the first world who tried to save costs in non-critical jobs, such as plastic surgery or dental treatments. Chinese medical tourists, on the other hand, do not seek to save as much money as they hope to save themselves from the medical results of a health system in the developing world.
In total, Chinese citizens made 500,000 outbound medical trips last year, five times more than the previous year, according to Ctrip.com International, a Chinese travel booking company that offers medical travel on its website.

The private aircraft rental company based in Hong Kong sees a growing interest among ultra-wealthy Chinese individuals in luxury travel abroad for medical and wellness reasons. The main destinations for Chinese medical tourists who tend to be more sensitive to prices are Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. However, the ultra-rich with a personal net worth of at least USD50 million are less sensitive to prices. They prefer to fly in a private jet and are increasingly choosing to travel abroad to Europe and the United States for treatments, medicines and more advanced technologies that are not available in China or the Asia Pacific region.
The market information provider, Global Growth Markets, estimates that outgoing Chinese medical tourism is a market of USD9.7 billion. "Around 4,300 ultra-rich Chinese sought medical care and health treatment abroad in 2015, spending more than USD450 million in IVF, advanced treatments for cancer and heart, stem cell treatments, health checks and wellness programs. On top of that, these ultra rich patients spent more than USD100 million on trips and sightseeing for these medical trips. "We expect this segment to grow faster than the rest of the market, around 30% annually in the coming years, since more than half of these ultra wealthy people will seek treatment abroad in the future," said Pete Read, CEO of Global growth markets.

"We are seeing an increasing number of inquiries about private jet flights to France, Germany, Switzerland, the United States and the United Kingdom from our ultra-wealthy Chinese clients for medical tourism, not only are there advanced specialized hospitals in these countries, but also cultural milestones and experiences that are popular among our clientele Sometimes family members travel abroad together for health check-ups and a family vacation, "said the founder and president of L'VOYAGE, Diana Chou. 

"To meet the growing trend of wellness and medical tourism, we serve our flight menus with strict dietary instructions upon request and help reserve flights back to the desired private jets for follow-up medical appointments. At this time, many of our ultra-high value Chinese customers take off from Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou airports, but we expect a gradual increase in flights from inland cities such as Dalian, Chengdu and Chongqing, where the population of Ultra-wealthy individuals are expected to grow at a faster rate than other cities.

The Chinese travel market, the world's largest issuer market !

The Chinese travel market, the world's largest issuer market ! 

With a number of travelers out of mainland China estimated according to sources between 62 and 70 million in the first half of 2017 (stays and excursions to Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macao included), China will once again strengthen its position as the world's leading transmitter market, notably with a 14% increase in issuing flows outside Greater China

The expenditure of Chinese visitors would also show a very strong increase in the first half of 2017 (+ 19%). After a difficult 2016, France has shown remarkable resilience: tourist flows from China are progressing again, and the destination should welcome this year more than 2 million visitors and thus maintain its position as European leader, despite intensifying competition. The delicate security environment of recent months in Europe does not seem to have a significant impact on Chinese visitor flows. According to forecasts by the World Tourism Organization (WTO), the size of the Chinese transmitter market could represent 220 million potential travelers by 2020.
The main data are:

  1. Population: 1.349 billion people
  2. Growth rate in 2017: + 6.8%
  3. Forecast of the growth rate in 2018: + 6.5%
  4. GDP per capita in US Dollar: US $ 8480

Main market trends and recommendations for addressing it
The Chinese clientele is experiencing a very significant increase in volume in the markets of secondary cities and a more qualitative evolution in the most mature markets (Shanghai, Beijing and Canton)

Chinese Tourists to Europe 

The majority of Chinese tourists who come to France for the first time still do so in groups (15-40 people) and discovery trips to Europe, usually from 3 to 4 countries. In recent months, there have been two very clear trends: the decrease in the number of people in the groups and the reduction in the number of countries visited. The development of individual customers and repeaters makes it possible to offer more and more thematic stays in Paris but also in the regions. The millenials (20-35 years old), ultra-connected travelers, independent, and in search of authentic experiences, constitute today 60% of Chinese tourists traveling abroad (40% for Europe). The family trip, perceived by Chinese parents as a beneficial element for the development and education of children, is becoming increasingly popular.


Shopping remains the number one expense item for Chinese travelers, although it is not necessarily the primary motivation for choosing a destination. China is already the world's largest market for MICE, especially for Incentive travel, which should still show a good growth in the coming years.
Networks and social media are specific to mainland China (Google, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are censored) and have become essential attractions for Chinese tourists. The Wechat platform, which boasts more than 900 million users, is now the first source of information to learn about a destination. M-tourism is also essential: Chinese tourists use massively mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) to learn about destinations, book services or share their travel experiences

Working in the Chinese market requires, first and foremost, developing strong and regular relationships with TO Chinese professionals and travel agencies, media and social networks, and opinion leaders, who strongly influence individual customers.
