Thailand Aesthetic Medicine Market Growth & Trends

The Thailand aesthetic medicine market size is expected to reach USD 1.89 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 13.6% from 2021 to 2028. The market is majorly driven by the increasing adoption of minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures, coupled with the growth in the population susceptible to signs of aging. Moreover, an increase in the incidence of road accidents is driving the demand for reconstructive surgeries, which is fuelling the growth of the aesthetic medicine market in the country.

According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), among Asian countries, Thailand is among the top ten countries with the highest number of invasive as well as non-invasive procedures. Cities such as Bangkok and Phuket are major cosmetic surgery hubs in the country, which have clusters of major aesthetic surgery hospitals and clinics.

According to a survey by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in 2019, around 92,597 invasive aesthetic procedures were performed in the country. Moreover, Thailand is a tourism-dependent economy where medical tourism is flourishing due to low treatment costs and high-quality post-treatment services. According to the Journal of Community Development Research, Thailand’s medical tourism industry expanded with a 10% revenue growth in 2019 from 2018. These factors might boost the growth of the aesthetic medicine market.

The advent of the Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in the cessation of medical tourism in Thailand. The majority of the medical tourists visit the country for cosmetic procedures, however, the international travel ban and lockdown restrictions due to the pandemic have resulted in the shutting down of aesthetic clinics, thereby affecting the country’s aesthetic medicine market. However, according to Bangkok Post, Thailand Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration stated that they have resumed the country’s medical and wellness tourism program intending to attract medical tourists back into the country. The aesthetic market revenue is expected to plunge back to pre-Covid levels by the end of 2022.
