North America had the most significant global ambulance services market share in 2022 due to its high-quality healthcare services and increasing geriatric population. The increasing older population is another factor that drives the market forward. In the United States, ambulances provide medical care and transport to definitive care for those in need. About 14 percent of the U. S. population is 65 and older. This number is expected to grow to 88.5 million by 2050, when people over 65 will make up 20 percent of the population. The aging population is more prone to chronic diseases, which leads to the need for ambulance services driving the market forward. For example, asthma is present in 8.3% of Americans. 20.4, or 26.5 million, of those people are adults and require the urgent need of ambulances in severe conditions.

Air ambulance is an advanced ambulance service. Air Methods, the largest provider of air medical services in the US, said that it has expanded its partnership with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield and is now approved by the plans' in-network health benefits in six more states. Over 550,000 patients in the United States use air ambulance services each year, according to the Association of Air Medical Services. In recent decades, demand for air ambulance services has increased significantly.
