Ambulance Equipment Market Size (2023 to 2028)

As per our analysis report, the global ambulance equipment market is forecasted to be worth USD 9.41 billion by 2028 from USD 7.71 billion in 2023. Furthermore, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.08% from 2023 to 2028.

Ambulances are emergency vehicles equipped with medical equipment to assist a patient in critical conditions. The ambulance is a vehicle bought by healthcare institutions or works with ambulance vehicle providers to bring in injured and critical patients who need help urgently. Many times, there isn't enough time to take a patient to a healthcare center without any immediate assistance or first aid; therefore, balances are often equipped with all kinds of assisting devices such as ECG monitors, defibrillators, spinal boards, infusion syringes, ventilators, nebulizer, sphygmomanometer, and others which help stabilize the patient before reaching the hospitals. Therefore, ambulances are essential vehicles that save lives every day.

COVID-19 Impact on the global ambulance equipment market:

The world experienced numerous effects of the pandemic. COVID-19 destroyed many industries due to lockdowns, quarantines, and limitations on providing services and manufacturing commodities. For instance, the healthcare sector suffered considerably as the demand for healthcare workers increased, and it became more challenging to treat patients with chronic illnesses due to inadequate hospital resources. Due to the outbreak, the pandemic directed all hospital personnel and resources toward COVID-19 patients. 

In conclusion, the sudden growth in the need for ambulances positively impacted the development of the ambulance equipment market.

Among the many lack of resources was the scarcity of ambulance services; as more cases of COVID-19 were being reported, there was a need for ambulances to carry emergency patients to the hospitals. However, the ambulance services had difficulty coordinating between the COVID-19 and non-covid-19 patients. They also struggled with regularly sanitizing each ambulance to prepare it for more patients. As a result, patients were waiting for long periods to access an ambulance. Therefore, the pandemic immensely increased the need for ambulances and ambulance equipment. 


The global ambulance equipment market is majorly driven by the rising aging population who may need assistance and cases of cardiovascular problems.

The number of traffic accidents along with trauma incidents is also pushing the market expansion. Ambulances are now including better equipment for advanced operational services to increase the patient's chances of survival. Such innovative steps to increase ambulance efficiency are expected to propel market growth. The increasing need for ambulances during COVID-19 times helped the market prosper.

The growing adoption of medical tourism worldwide to help spread awareness about the need for and importance of ambulances is boosting the market.

The populations from high-income countries travel to low-income countries to cut medical expenses and have less waiting time, with the people traveling to high-income countries such as the U.S. for better services and facilities coupled with advanced treatments and boosting the market's growth. In addition, these traveling patients require air and ground ambulance services and equipment like hemorrhage and control equipment, thus increasing the demand. 

The growing rate of accidents is anticipated to bolster the growth rate of the ambulance equipment market.

Road accidents are incidents that require immediate and instant assistance and are fatal to people. Even the slightest delay n the arrival of help may lead to people losing their lives. Therefore, road accidents require assistance from ambulances and their equipment. According to ASIRT, over 37,000 people die in traffic accidents in the United States every year, and an additional 2.35 million suffer injuries or disabilities. The ninth biggest cause of death worldwide is road accidents. In addition, the Association for Safe International Road Travel estimates that 20 to 50 million individuals worldwide are either crippled or injured due to traffic accidents, and World Health Organization (WHO) says 1.3 million people pass away on the roads yearly. This prevalence of road accidents further pushes the need for ambulances leading to market growth.


The shortage of skilled professionals to provide ambulatory assistance and the high costs associated with emergency services are expected to restrain the market's growth.
