South-East Asia is a world heavy weight with bright growth perspectives despite current crisis.


South-East Asia is a world heavy weight (3rd population pool with 650 M inhab. and 5th eco-block with 7%-8% world trade), with bright growth perspectives despite current crisis.

Underlying trends feeding these perspectives, notably in health tech, as Healthcare has become a top priority for Governments in ASEAN:

  • Emerging and growing middle class (eager to consume and a prone to well-being)
  • Young, urban, tech savvy population
  • Running urban development and infrastructures (how to adapt health facilities to the growing population and to the Elderly?)
  • New consumption trends: occidentalization, live longer and healthier, hyperconnectivity…
  • Heterogeneous region: persistent gaps and health challenges among countries (access to health and quality of care)
  • Technologies more and more intrusive in the Healthcare ecosystems

Great challenges to overcome:

  • Improve the health status and the health coverage of the ASEAN population
  • Contain the explosion of Healthcare costs caused by numerous factors: construction of health infrastructures, high consumption of medicine, aging population, chronic / infectious diseases, inefficient supply chains...
  • Transform and develop healthcare ecosystems driven by unprecedented access to Big Data and latest technologies
  • Explore innovative solutions to improve patient care and develop homecare
  • Increase and train more healthcare professionals
  • Engage and empower patients and healthcare consumers as the industry heads personalized medicine and care

Singapore is today considered the most innovative economy in South-East Asia. It also has one of the best healthcare systems in the world (6th in the WHO world ranking) and is often presented as a reference. Singapore, regional hub, is a fertile ground for innovative solutions as well as R&D, notably in the health sector.

Singapore’s healthcare system is faced with multiple challenges: a growing prevalence of chronic diseases, a rapidly ageing population, rising Healthcare spending and a shortage of manpower in the healthcare sector.
