Micro Hospitals Segmentation

Location (Tier 1 cities, tier 2 cities, tier 3 cities)

The tier-1 cities segment is estimated to gain a robust market share of 42% in the coming years owing to the presence of a dense population base, which creates a large customer pool for healthcare services. According to a report, more than 50% of the global population lives in urban areas, and this data might increase 1.5 times and cross the 6 billion population by 2045. This leads to increased competition, as various healthcare players compete for a large and lucrative market. The competition drives the need for specialized and more effective services at a competitive price, which further fuels the growth of micro-hospitals.

End-user (International tourists, corporates, individuals)

The International tourist segment is set to garner a notable share shortly and is likely to remain the second largest segment in the end-user segment of the micro hospitals market as the tourists from foreign countries, who are unfamiliar with the local language and the country customs, are more likely to seek the need for specialized medical services during their stay in that city. This creates a high demand for micro-hospitals that provide targeted, efficient, and cost-effective services for international tourists.

Additionally, many Tier-1 cities have large numbers of international tourists, which provide a significantly higher customer base and a profitable market for the micro-hospital industry. The presence of international tourists also creates international awareness and appeal, which can also help to expand the micro hospitals market

Facilities (Physical, therapy, primary care, rotating specialized, surgery centers, ultrasound)

The physical segment in the micro hospitals market is estimated to hold a noteworthy share as they take up comparatively less space and also require comparatively lower costs than traditional hospitals. This allows for the operation of more micro-hospitals, which expands access to the healthcare industry along with a limited resource. Furthermore, it also reduces the investments that are needed for setting up a hospital, which creates a lower barrier to entry and leads to increased competition, which drives the micro hospitals market
