Dubai has one of the fastest population growth rates, both regionally and internationally.

 According to the Department of Statistics, the population at the end of 2013 stood at approximately 2.21 million with an overall CAGR of 6.66% for the period between 2005 – 2013.

 Colliers International estimates that the population of Dubai is expected to reach 3.48 million by 2020, subject to it maintaining the current growth rate patterns. Should the projected growth rate increase to 8% due to various recent initiatives and infrastructure projects taken by the Dubai Government, then the population is expected to reach 3.8 million by 2020.

During 2005 – 2009, just before the global financial crisis, Dubai’s population was growing by a CAGR of 13.3% – compared to the period following the crisis (2010 – 2013), where the CAGR stood at 5.1%.

Increasing population, coupled with rising average income levels, will continue to feed demand for infrastructure and services particularly in energy, water, telecoms, technology, housing, education, and financial sectors, which consequently will have positive impacts on the healthcare sector.

Healthcare Overview

The Ministry of Health delegates a portion of the duties to specialised health authorities, within every emirate in accordance with the federal mandate, as shown below:

Specialised Health Authorities – UAE


Dubai Health Authority (DHA) is responsible for overseeing the healthcare sector of the Emirate of Dubai, in addition to enhancing private sector engagement. The DHA is also responsible for the operation of a significant share of hospitals in Dubai. The Private Sector in Dubai represents the majority share reaching almost 79%, with a total of 22 hospitals out of a total of 28 hospitals operating within the emirate. Medical centres were historically operated only by the private sector, however, 16 local and 9 federal medical centres were opened in 2009. By the end of 2012 there were a total of 1,348 medical clinics, out of which 97% were owned and operated by the private sector.

  • Dubai’s healthcare sector offers significant opportunities for investors / operators. The following are some of the key contributing factors:
  • High population growth rates. The population of Dubai reached 2.2 million in 2013 from 1.3 million in 2005, with a CARG of 6.66%. Current projections anticipate the population will further increase to 3.5 million by 2020.
  • The population of the UAE and Dubai is predominantly expatriate workers, the majority of whom are considered Generation X (born between 1965 and 1980) and Generation Y (born between 1981 and 2000). As the current population of the UAE, including Dubai, ages there is likely to be a sharp rise in healthcare demand as almost 80% of a person’s healthcare requirements typically occurs after the age of 40 – 50 years.
  • Introduction of compulsory health insurance in Dubai. After compulsory health insurance was introduced in Abu Dhabi, the revenues of most of the private hospitals doubled in subsequent years, Dubai healthcare sector is also expected to follow the same pattern.
  • . • High returns on healthcare investments. High quality, efficient private hospitals could achieve 15% – 20% net profit margins after initial stabilization years.
  • Heavy reliance on imported medicine and medical equipment. This increases the cost of establishing healthcare facilities. A number of medical equipment suppliers provide medical equipment on long-term leases, and even equity investment in order to facilitate healthcare initiatives.
  • Continued growth of regional medical tourism. The government of Dubai has recently taken a number of initiatives to establish and promote Dubai as a medical tourism hub.
  • The overall supply of healthcare facilities struggles to keep pace with the burgeoning population. The Government has introduced a number of recent initiatives in the recent past to encourage the private sector to match the shortfall and benefit from this potentially lucrative sector.
  • Colliers International Dubai Healthcare Overview Q4 2014 provides a brief snapshot of the key factors impacting the Dubai Healthcare Sector and its future outlook.
