Global Ambulance Services Market to Reach $50.9 Billion by 2026


A critical part of every well-prepared public health and healthcare system is the ambulance services sector. Ambulance services are a critical link between health care and disaster management systems as they offer pre-hospital care for people injured in disasters and also transport to tertiary health care facilities. With global health spending per capita poised to grow from US$ 1,500 to over 2,000 by 2040, opportunities for emergency care services is high. Also, aging population and high prevalence of ambulatory care sensitive conditions (ACSCs) in aged over 65+ emerges as an opportunity for ambulance services. Rising number of road accidents; focus on medical preparedness for natural disasters; favorable reimbursement scenario; and technology innovations are the other factors driving up demand for ambulance services. With governments still battling tough financial conditions, public-private partnerships (PPP) for ambulance services will grow in importance in the coming years. Ambulance services play a critical role in the Covid-19 response system. The effect of Covid-19 on delivery of healthcare through digital solutions is significant and continues to expand rapidly with the use of telemedicine as a central strategy to tackle Covid-19 patient surge. This in turn created robust demand for ambulance-based telemedicine.
