Ambulance Services Market - Porter’s Analysis

Threat of New Entrants: Moderate

Huge investment is required in vehicles, equipment, and medical supplies purchasing which makes it difficult for new players to enter the ambulance services market. Moreover, a strict regulatory requirement for the equipment and supplies in the ambulance worsens the scenario further. However, there has been a constant entry of new local and multinational players with new innovative ideas and better services. In addition, road accidents, and the increasing incidence of chronic disorders globally have provided opportunities for new players. Hence, overall the threat from new entrants is anticipated to be on a moderate level

Bargaining Power of Buyers: Moderate

Ambulance services in mainly availed by the patient that require transportation for emergency as well as non-emergency healthcare services. It is also availed by hospitals and institutions for their patient transportation and they generally have tie-ups with various ambulance service providers. The availability of several ambulance services in a region keeps the option open for switching. Also, switching depends on the availability of ambulance services and the response time. Hence, the bargaining power of buyers is anticipated to be moderate over the forecast period.

Competitive Rivalry: High

The market is highly competitive with the top market players accounting for almost similar revenue share. Companies have adopted strategies including mergers & acquisitions, and several other strategic alliances to gain a competitive edge. Additionally, companies are more focused on the development of technologically advanced products, which deliver greater accuracy and efficiency. The entry of new players is posing a threat to the existing market players thereby maintaining the industry rivalry on the higher side.

Threat of Substitutes: Low

The threat of substitutes is on a lower level. In some countries, firefighters provide emergency services, but there are as such no alternatives available for emergency medical services

Bargaining Power of Suppliers: Low

The supplies required for the ambulance services are vehicles (motor vehicles, helicopters, airplanes, and boats), and medical equipment and supplies. For these medical equipments and supplies, there are plenty of vendors available in the market. Moreover, for medical equipment and supplies, vendors have to meet various standards set by the regulatory authorities. This results in low bargaining power of suppliers.
