Emerging Market Healthcare Sector Highlights: By 2040, emerging market countries on average are projected to increase healthcare spending as percent of GDP by 24.4% compared to just 9.8% in developed markets over the same time period1. In emerging markets, rapid urbanization and rising income is fueling growth in the demand for healthcare services and treatments. Cases of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes and cancer are rising steadily in emerging market countries, presenting a growth opportunity for innovators in the healthcare space. Emerging markets governments are enacting policies such as India’s “National Health Protection Mission” and China’s “Healthy China 2030 Plan” to meet the growing demand for healthcare.
