FELTON, California, January 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ —
The market size for global air ambulance services was worth USD 3.7 billion in 2016 which is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of more than 9.3% during the forecast period. The factors contributing to the growth of the market are increasing the prevalence of chronic diseases, for instance, cardiac disorders which need an emergency medical response, accessibility of reimbursement policies, rising per capita healthcare expenditure and improvement of medical infrastructure in entertainment & sports industry.
An exponential rise in the per capita healthcare spending is observed worldwide in the past twenty years. According to the statistics given by The World Bank Group, in 1996, the per capita healthcare expenditure was approximately USD 467.6 and this figure raised exponentially to USD 1,060.9 in 2014. The 55.0% growth in per capita healthcare spending can be associated with better access to quality care, better economic conditions, and rising awareness amongst the population. These factors also contribute towards a rise in demand for air ambulance services in the last five years.
Developed economies, for instance, the U.S., provide reimbursement policies which enable the air ambulance service providers to overcome the issues related to high service prices and helped the market grow at a remunerative rate. The Government of Accountability Office (GAO) published statistics which say that Medicaid and Medicare payments contributed to approximately 12.0% and 30.0% of market revenue correspondingly whereas private insurers contributed to nearly 50.0% of market revenue. The air ambulance services are expensive, therefore, out of pocket payments are infrequent.
