The Healthcare market in Saudi Arabia has witnessed a growth in recent years on account of rising demand for healthcare services fueled by increasing incidence of life style related diseases and expanding population base of the country. The growth in this segment has been largely led by inclining government investment over the past five years. More than 60% of the healthcare services in the country are provided by the Ministry of Health of Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Arabia Healthcare market revenues have grown at a CAGR of 10.0% from 2009-2014.

While the government has taken great steps to enhance public health-care delivery systems, it has fallen short on its stipulated targets outlined in the Kingdom's successive development plans. The burden of satisfying the escalating demand for various healthcare services in the country has fallen primarily on the Saudi Government over the past five years. The government therefore has been encouraging private participation in the healthcare sector, especially over the past couple of years.

According to the research report, the Saudi Arabia Healthcare market will grow at a considerable CAGR rate thus exceeding SAR 127.5 billion by 2019 due to the spurring investments by the Saudi Government in the healthcare sector, new pharmacy retail stores, and increasing imports of medical devices.

As per the recommendations of Research Analyst , Ken Research” the penetration of hospitals is lower in Tier-II and Tier-III cities and thus recommends that a gradual shift towards setting up more hospitals in Tier-II and Tier-III cities will enable the healthcare providers to serve different consumer segments such as lower middle income and rural population. Moreover, in the Medical devices market, the country has showcased huge dependence on imports. Hence, the country should encourage increasing production for medical devices in the domestic arena.
