Industry Outlook

The U.S. emergency medical services (EMS) products market size was valued at USD 8.08 billion in 2016. It is expected to rise at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. Spiralling demand for emergency care, rising incidence of trauma, and increasing healthcare spending are among the key trends stoking market growth.

U.S. EMS products market

Trauma injuries are severe physical injuries and sudden occurrence of these injures require quick medical attention. As per the U.S. American Association for the Surgery of Trauma, it is the leading cause of death among individuals between the age 1 to 45 and 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 leads to over 150,000 deaths per year.

In addition, as per 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. 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. In the U.S., the National Health Expenditure Accounts (NHEA) officially estimates the total healthcare spending. It measures government administration, investment related to health care, the total budget for health insurance, healthcare products and services, and public health activities.

The NHEA reported that in 2016, the healthcare spending of the U.S. increased by 4.3%, reaching USD 3.3 trillion, which is USD 10,348 per person. Rising healthcare spending in the country is estimated to improve the quality of emergency medical services in order to enhance health outcomes.

Product Insights

Based on products, the life support & emergency resuscitation segment commanded the largest market share in 2016. Life support & emergency resuscitation is required in most of the emergency cases. The segment is projected to maintain its dominance in the market throughout the forecast period.

Resuscitation systems are used to provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to victims of cardiac arrest. It is also used to provide intermittent positive-pressure ventilation (IPPV) and continuous oxygen inhalation therapy in case of emergency. Emergency resuscitation system also includes diagnostic & surgical items, small oxygen cylinder, manual suction apparatus, manual resuscitator, and automatic ventilator.

The segment contributed a little over one third of the overall market revenue in 2016. The growth of the segment can be attributed to rising awareness about life support services among patients and easy availability of technologically advanced equipment & trained personnel.

End-use Insights

On the basis of end use, the U.S. EMS products market is segmented into fire department services, government or third party services, private transport services, hospital-owned services, public utility models, volunteer services, and others.

Fire department dominated the market in 2016. Fire departments are the first responders and attend casualties at the accident sites. They also carry EMS products to provide first aid. The equipment carried by fire department include Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), stretchers, and wound care consumables such as bandages, cotton wool, dressings, swabs, and tapes.

U.S. EMS products market share

Several initiatives undertaken by fire departments in the U.S. to provide emergency medical services are supplementing the growth of the segment. For instance, in February 2018, Yuma (Arizona) fire department built their own ambulance by spending around USD 140 thousand from the savings of the fire department. It has battery operated stretcher to lift patients and is equipped with all ambulance necessities.

The private transport segment is also likely to gain market share over the forecast period as they are able to efficiently manage capital-intensive operations and also allocate resources in an effective manner. In addition, hospitals are also entering into partnerships with private transport companies for providing ambulance services in order to re-focus on their core areas.
