The Global Ambulance Services Market size is expected to reach $31.8 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 4.9% CAGR during the forecast period. Ambulance services are the emergency response to move critically injured or sick patients to and from hospitals and ensure that healthcare workers provide appropriate attention. Efficient outpatient programs contribute to prompt medical care for victims of injuries or patients with chronic illnesses. Ambulance services play a significant role in the health care sector.

The growth of the ambulance services market has been propelled by the increasing geriatric population along with the rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases like cancer and diabetes, as well as complex medical needs. In addition, a growing number of alcohol and mental health problems along with an increased rate of road accidents are other significant factors responsible for the growth of the demand for ambulance services. According to the World Health Organization, about 1.35 million people die as a result of road traffic accidents every year.

In addition, the ambulance services sector comprises private and public providers offering air or surface transport services to seriously ill patients, along with primary medical care. These vehicles are equipped with healthcare practitioners operating life-saving devices. For many countries, private ambulance services have emerged to provide ambulance services, particularly in rural areas that lack the necessary funds to provide free ambulance services and also due to state monetary issues.

Based on Transport Type, the market is segmented into Ground Ambulance Services, Air Ambulance Services and Water Ambulance Services. Based on Urgency, the market is segmented into Emergency Ambulance Services and Non-Emergency Ambulance Services. Based on Equipment, the market is segmented into Advance Life Support and Basic Life Support.
