Ambulance Services in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Ambulance Services in the US

The Ambulance Services industry exhibited growth over the five years to 2019, driven by demographic shifts. Over the five years to 2024, industry revenue is forecast to continue to grow as the expanding elderly population continues to boost the potential number of ED visits. Accordingly, as health trends continue and more patients are diagnosed with diabetes, the incidence of chronic kidney disease is likely to rise, bolstering demand for nonemergency ambulance services for dialysis patients. Private equity companies are expected to continue acquiring medical transport and supporting companies in attempts to make patient transportation more efficient, while also increasing prices to boost their own profits.

The industry includes private operators that provide transportation of patients by ground or air, along with medical care. These services are often provided during a medical emergency but are not restricted to such instances. Industry vehicles are equipped with lifesaving equipment operated by medically trained personnel.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
