India stands at the forefront of today’s global spa and wellness market, alluring domestic and international visitors alike with the time-honored traditions of Ayurveda and yoga and high quality, affordable medical tourism.

Now poised to become the fifth largest consumer market globally by 2020, India demonstrates all the demographic advantages of an ideal market for leading international spa and wellness brands.
 
At present, the country boasts a 350-million strong middle class, a notably large youth population (50% of which are under the age of 25), rising levels of disposable income, and associated increases in overall aspiration and experimentation, as well as obesity, related health issues, and health consciousness.
