There is a healthcare revolution taking place in the Middle East, with investors in the region increasingly pursuing opportunities in pharmaceuticals, medtech, home healthcare services and a variety of other healthcare subsectors.
This is most evident in terms of regional investment and the rapid expansion in the region’s healthcare sector. For example, home care provider Manzil Home Health Services recently expanded its operations to Doha, Qatar. The company is backed by private equity firm TVM Capital Healthcare Partners and a syndicate of other investors.
According to Dr. Helmut Schuehsler, Chairman of the Board at Manzil Health Care Services and CEO of TVM Capital Healthcare Partners, “Governments in the GCC are encouraging private investment in healthcare, because they welcome new specialist, high quality services.” He added that Manzil “is an excellent example of a company that is filling a significant gap in healthcare provision”.
Dr. Schuehsler’s remark highlight the fact that there are significant gaps in healthcare provision in the Middle East, and companies able to fill these gaps are likely to easily attract the attention of not only governments in the region, but also private investors. Although this applies most clearly to healthcare companies in the Middle East, it is also true for healthcare companies abroad.
Middle Eastern investors are able and willing to invest in overseas healthcare opportunities if they can be demonstrated to provide a real benefit to the regional healthcare market, or support investors in their pursuit of asset diversification in the wake of the oil price crash.
