Indian healthcare is experiencing a new wave of opportunity. Providers are reinventing existing delivery models to bring healthcare closer to the patient. The following emerging trends are changing the course of the industry:

  • The change in the government’s role from provider to payer has expanded the financial risk protection coverage to the marginalised.
  • Private sector partnerships through health PPPs are gradually gaining acceptance, thereby improving access to care.
  • The significant demand-supply mismatch has led healthcare to emerge as an attractive sector for PE investments.

Our Healthcare practice works closely with governments, funding agencies, payers, providers and private investors, on engagements in every sector of the industry. We have helped implement major health reforms, public health policy initiatives, as well as strategies and solutions for various clients.

Our dedicated team of specialists brings a diverse range of client engagement and analytical skills in healthcare strategy, technical feasibilities, operations improvement, healthcare deals and technology experience.

India has one of the fastest growing healthcare markets in the world. Rising income levels, an aging population, increasing insurance penetration and the demand-supply imbalance presents a big opportunity for players to increase bed capacity and for further investments in the sector across the country.

Private equity funds have been positive on the sector given the opportunities going forward and decent returns on past investments. While the exits to PE funds have been mainly in the form of secondaries, the capital market route will offer another option going forward.
