Global Ambulance Services Market is valued approximately USD 40.23 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 9.9% over the forecast period 2023-2030. Ambulance services refer to the emergency medical services (EMS) that provide transportation and medical assistance to individuals who need urgent medical care. The main purpose of ambulance services is to provide rapid medical response to individuals who are experiencing a medical emergency, such as a heart attack, stroke, or severe injury.
The demand for ambulance services has grown as a result of a growth in the number of serious accidents, persons with various chronic ailments, and the elderly. Over the course of the projected period, it is also anticipated that the growth in medical tourism and the availability of reimbursement schemes will increase demand for ambulance services. A significant portion of the population over the age of 60, who often have a reduced immunity level and are more susceptible to neurological disorders, cardiac issues, cancer, and spinal injuries, is also anticipated to have a strong impact on the market’s growth over the projected period. For instance, the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations projects that by 2050, about 1 in 6 of the world’s population would be over 65. Additionally, according to a comparable estimate, there were 703 million persons over 65 in the world. Therefore, the market for ambulance services is projected to expand as the senior population grows.
Ambulance services saw an upsurge in demand due to the COVID-19 epidemic. For instance, Accretion Aviation had a 20% increase during the COVID-19 outbreak, according to Quartz India. However, it is anticipated that as the number of COVID-19 patients declines, so will the demand for ambulance services. As a result, the market is anticipated to experience a little fall in 2022–2023. Even though the market for ambulance services has shrunk, significant growth is expected over the next few years. This can be attributable to an increase in ambulances over the course of COVID-19. For instance, the Mint reported that Ziqitza Healthcare would give the Madhya Pradesh (India) government 200 extra ambulances during the COVID-19 period. Thus, aforementioned factors are expected to be responsible for the growth of ambulance services market. However, the regulatory hurdles regarding Ambulance Services stifles market growth throughout the forecast period of 2023-2030.
The key regions considered for the Global Ambulance Services Market study includes Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. In 2022, North America dominated the market for ambulance services and generated the biggest revenue share. The existence of multiple major market participants in this area, the rising demand for high-quality healthcare services, the region’s well-established healthcare infrastructure, and favourable reimbursement policies and regulatory reforms in the healthcare industry are all contributing factors to the expansion. Nevertheless, the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to see the fastest CAGR of 12.42% throughout the course of the projection period. The increase in the elderly population in nations like China, India, and Japan is responsible for the growth rate. For instance, according to the Statistics Bureau of Japan, 36.19 million people in Japan were 65 years of age or older in 2020, making up around 28.8% of the country’s overall population. Similar to China, the WHO predicts that by 2040, there will be 28% of seniors in the country. Because seniors are more likely to suffer from various illnesses, the Asia Pacific area is forecast to experience the quickest growth rate.
