The Indian healthcare industry has grown manifold during the last few years. Although there is a yawning divide between healthcare facilities available in rural and urban India and in the demand and supply of healthcare services across the country, overall the Indian healthcare infrastructure is fast improving with initiatives by the government and the private sector . The entry of private players has further spurred the development of the healthcare sector. The striking feature of the sector is that it has the potential to grow at a much faster rate in the foreseeable future and will present new 'sectors of opportunity' within healthcare, which will emerge as growth drivers. The Indian healthcare industry overview indicates it has the same exponential growth potential as software and pharmaceutical industries in the country.
