Trauma injuries are severe physical injuries and the sudden occurrence of these injuries requires quick medical attention. As per the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma, it is the leading cause of death among individuals between the ages of 1 to 45 and the fourth leading cause of death for all ages. The association also reported that in the U.S., over 3.0 million non-fatal injuries occur every year and lead to over 150,000 deaths.

Besides, as per the CDC, traumatic brain injury is the major cause of disability and death in the U.S., accounting for 30.0% of all injury-related deaths. Thus, a high number of cases of disability and deaths due to trauma is anticipated to bolster the growth of the market.

Increasing healthcare spending is another factor influencing market dynamics positively. For instance, according to the American Medical Association, healthcare spending in the U.S. surged by around 9.7% in 2020, tallying up to USD 4.1 trillion, which is approximately USD 12,530 per capita. Moreover, per a similar source, the healthcare expenditure increased to 19.7% of the total GDP in 2020, compared to 17.6% of the GDP in 2019.

Additionally,the rising incidence rate of burn cases in several U.S. states is further impelling the growth. For instance, as per data by the U.S. Fire Administration and NFIRS, the national average of residential fire casualties was 6.2 deaths & 25.6 injuries per 1,000 fire incidents. Similarly, the rise in the number of fire departments in the U.S. is expected to further impel market growth. For instance, the number of fire departments present in some major U.S. states is shown below:

Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the emergency medical service (EMS) products market in the U.S. For instance, as per a study by NCBI, COVID-19 had an indirect impact on the rise in emergency medical service calls for opioid use or various cardiac events across the U.S. Moreover, according to another analysis by a similar source, total EMS call volume increased by 23.3% in 2020. To address the rising demand, various strategies were adopted by leading players and service providers. For instance, the Copenhagen EMS operator operated 2 emergency telephone lines.

Similarly, as per Cardinal Health, the demand for personal protection kits increased by two to 12 times the amount that was available. To deal with the increasing demand for emergency medical services products, leading companies went into various strategic initiatives such as product developments, partnerships, geographic expansions, and collaborations.

For instance, as COVID-19 led to the disruption of the supply chain, companies such as Cardinal Health re-evaluated their entire supply chain and sourcing practices to meet the growing demand. The company also increased its self-manufacturing capabilities to increase the production capacity of surgical procedural masks, isolation gowns, and face shields. Thus, as a result of the aforementioned factors, COVID-19 had a positive impact on the country’s emergency medical services (EMS) products market.

Product Insights

The life support & emergency resuscitation segment dominated the U.S. emergency medical services (EMS) products market with a share of 34.11% in 2021. The dominance can be accredited to the high demand for emergency care due to the rising number of road accidents. For instance, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation, in 2020, around 38,824 motor vehicle road fatalities were recorded in the U.S., which was around 2,469 more than that in 2019. Life support & emergency resuscitation equipment such as defibrillators, resuscitators, and ventilators are used during road accidents.

Moreover, an increase in the number of people suffering from cardiac arrest is predicted to drive the demand for emergency services in the U.S. For instance, according to the latest stats by Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation, more than 356,000 people suffered from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, of which nearly 90% were fatal. Emergency products such as ventilators are used during such situations. Thus, as a result of the aforementioned factors, the segment is projected to have a significant growth rate during the forecast duration.

The patient monitoring systems segment is projected to witness a significant growth rate of 7.53% during the forecast period. The rising incidence of cardiac arrest, traumatic accidents, and the emergence of COVID-19 have impacted the demand growth rate of patient monitoring systems. For instance, according to the American Heart Association, in a single year, 350,000 Americans die as a result of cardiac arrest. Moreover, as per a similar source, around 10,000 cardiac arrests occur at the workplace in the U.S.

Additionally, the number of traumatic accidents has increased in the U.S. For instance, as per CDC, around 64,000 traumatic brain injury-related deaths were recorded in the U.S. in 2020. Furthermore, as per a similar source, unintentional injuries lead to 200,955 deaths in the U.S, whereas the death rate as a result of accidents was calculated to be 12.4 per 100,000 population. As patient monitoring systems are used to monitor patients’ vital signs and warning systems to detect & record changes, the use of such systems is expected to rise during the projected duration, thereby impelling the segment growth.

End-use Insights

Hospitals and trauma centers dominated the end-use segment with a market share of 46.60% in 2021. This can be attributed to an increase in the number of hospitals in the U.S. For instance, as per data released by the American Health Association, the number of hospitals in the U.S. are as follows:


Total Number of All U.S. Hospitals


Number of U.S. Community Hospitals


Number of Non-government Not-for-Profit Community Hospitals


Number of Investor-Owned (For-Profit) Community Hospitals


Number of State and Local Government Community Hospitals


Number of Federal Government Hospitals


Number of Non-federal Psychiatric Hospitals


Other Hospitals



Moreover, as per the CDC, the total number of emergency department visits in the U.S. tallied up to 130 million, with 35 million injury-related visits. Owing to the aforementioned factors, the segment is anticipated to propel during the forecast period.

However, ambulatory surgical centers are projected to advance at the fastest CAGR of 8.08% during the forecast years. This can be credited to the increasing number of ambulatory surgical centers in the region. For instance, according to the Ambulatory Surgical Center Association and ASCA Foundation, the number of ASCs present in Texas was 461 in 2022. 

Moreover, as per a similar source, the number of ASCs present in California tallied up to 845 as of March 2022. ASCs provide same-day surgery and care, which includes diagnosis and preventive procedures. This trend is expected to surge the demand for emergency products, thereby boosting the segment growth during the assessment period.
