About The Report


The United States is witnessing a significant demographic shift, with the Census Bureau reporting that as of 2020, the older population has swelled to 55.8 million, making up 16.8% of the total population. This surge is primarily attributed to the aging baby boomers, who began turning 65 in 2011. With advancing age, the demand for both emergency and non-emergency ambulance services escalates, particularly as health concerns like diabetes become more prevalent among this demographic. This trend not only highlights the growing need for specialized care tailored to the elderly but also presents a ripe opportunity for vendors to tap into one of the fastest-expanding markets in the US.

The Ambulance Service market in the United States is experiencing significant growth, with its value projected to increase from $17.82 billion in 2023 to $32.19 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 10.36%. This growth is driven by several factors, including an aging population, rising healthcare expenditure, and an increase in chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and coronary artery diseases.

In 2023, the Advanced Life Support (ALS) segment dominated the market with a 68.85% share and is expected to continue its growth due to the rising need for advanced medical care during transportation. The Ground Ambulances segment, making up 48.70% of the market, is also growing steadily, offering a more affordable option than air ambulances.

The Emergency Services segment leads the market with a 77.47% share, primarily serving the elderly more prone to serious health conditions. Geographically, the Metropolitan Statistical Areas are the largest market segment, holding a 76.79% share in 2023, and are expected to grow due to the higher elderly population and disease prevalence in these areas.

The demand for ambulance services is fueled by increasing incidents of chronic diseases and road accidents. For example, the CDC reports that annually, over 795,000 people in the U.S. suffer from strokes, and around 3.4 million have epilepsy. Basic Life Support (BLS) services, accounting for 48.5% of ground ambulance claims in 2020, cater to patients who do not require advanced cardiac monitoring or respiratory interventions.

The Smart Ambulance, equipped with real-time connectivity, GPS, RFID technology, and compatibility with hospital equipment, represents the future of ambulance services, offering more efficient and accurate medical assistance.

The US ambulance services market is highly fragmented, with key players like Air Medical Group Holdings, Rural/Metro Corp, Medstar Ambulance, Acadian Medical Response, and AirEvac leading the market. These companies are investing in advanced technologies and expanding geographically to improve service delivery and response times.

In conclusion, the US Ambulance Service market is rapidly growing due to the increasing demand for emergency medical services, technological advancements, and the aging population. The market is competitive, with companies continuously innovating and expanding to meet the growing needs.

  • In 2023, ground ambulances by mode of transport are contributing 48.70% of the Ambulance Service and are expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.98% during the forecast period since most people are likely to opt for ground ambulance services as the cost for air ambulances is bit higher.
  • In 2023, the emergency services segment dominated the market with 77.47% and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.54%, as most people in the US opting for ambulance services are aged and prone to serious health conditions.

  • The revenue generated from ambulance services in the US is rising steadily. Diabetes, an increasing aging population, obesity, other chronic diseases, and road accidents are key factors that contribute to the rising demand in the US. For instance, in 2018, there were approximately 52 million people aged 65 and above, which is projected to become about 95 million by 2060 in the US. As the elderly are more prone to diseases, it is expected that the need for ambulance services will be even more during the forecast period.
