Owing to its rich tradition of ancient practices such as Ayurveda and Yoga, India is one of the top
destinations for wellness and rejuvenation. Over the last couple of years in particular, thanks in part
to globalisation bridging the gap between the “East” and the “West,” the world has taken an interest
in not just the science behind the alternative medicinal practices of Naturopathy and Siddha, the
history of Ayurveda, and the practice of Yoga, but also in the multi-dimensional concept of physical,
mental and emotional well-being and their documented benefits. The country sees a steady influx of
tourists from United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, France, etc. at a number of wellness
and rejuvenation resorts across the country, that offer not just the best ayurvedic treatment in India
but also personalised wellness programs.
In fact, projected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of nearly 12 per cent, the
wellness sector of the Indian healthcare industry is expected to reach US$ 23 billion by 2020. It is
important to note that as much as globalisation and the increase in international tourism have
contributed to the exponential growth of this sector, there have also been several notable domestic
factors that have contributed to this growth.
Already the second largest exporter of Ayurvedic and herbal products in the world with its wealth of
around 10,000 medical plants, the Indian ayurvedic industry is expected to reach US$ 9 billion by
2022. Recognising this incredible potential of growth and business, both the public and private
stakeholders have more than doubled their investments in setting up the infrastructure to make the
most of the market. For example, on the public sector side, in 2017-18, the country had 460
Ayurveda and homeopathy government recognised colleges. That number has grown significantly
since due to government investments. The rise in recognised colleges have also led to the rise in the
number of Ayurveda practitioners in the country. The best ayurvedic doctors in India come
thoroughly educated, accredited, and vetted – all as a result of the aforementioned investments.
With consistent efforts by the government to strengthen and popularize alternative medicine
systems and incredible growth opportunities across different segments supported by increasing
awareness and changing lifestyles, India is set to become a global hub for wellness in the coming
