The Singapore healthcare industry has started its development at the beginning of the years 2000 when the Government started to pay greater attention to the biomedical technologies with a focus on human healthcare. Ever since, this industry has known important growth, now becoming one of the industries supporting Singapore’s Gross Domestic Product. Nowadays, Singapore’s healthcare industry is made up of public and private biomedical and pharmaceutical companies. Medical technologies are also an important part of the healthcare industry in the city-state.

Why invest in the Singapore healthcare sector?

According to governmental reports, even if well developed, the healthcare sector in Singapore still has a lot of room left for improvement. Already known as a reputable medical center, Singapore has started to develop a new branch of the healthcare industry: medical tourism. During the last few years more and more foreign citizens have started to seek out Singapore for its excellent healthcare facilities. The great demand has transformed the city-state into one of the largest health and medical tourism markets in Asia. Singapore also has the 4th best healthcare infrastructure in the world according to several reports.

Singapore also offers a great business environment for the healthcare industry and a talented workforce in order to complete the picture. The city-state is also keen on addressing the innovative side of this sector which is why the Government has launched different schemes to help private biomedical and pharmaceutical companies and other healthcare providers.

Governmental aid for the Singapore healthcare industry

During the last years, the Government has had a very active participation in the development of the Singapore healthcare sector. Among the most successful programs it launched are:

  • -          the development and expansion incentive under which healthcare companies can benefit from corporate tax deductions,
  • -          the investment allowance incentive,
  • -          the Approved Foreign Loan Scheme which addresses international investors in the healthcare sector,
  • -          the Research and Development Assistance Scheme,
  • -          the Research Incentive Scheme for Companies.
