Drivers & Restraints-

Increasing Prevalence of Strokes, Heart Attacks, and Trauma to Boost Growth

The urgent need to transport patients suffering from trauma incidents, heart attacks, and strokes raises the demand for these ambulance services as these patients require time-sensitive therapies in hospitals. In the U.S., for instance, more than 4 million people suffer from serious injuries owing to road accidents every year. Similarly, in Europe, approximately a million people suffer from strokes annually. Hence, time-dependent surgical or medical intervention is necessary in numerous cases of chronic ailments.

However, compared to ground ambulance services, the mode of air transportation involves high-cost spending. It usually costs between USD 3,000 to USD 24,000 based on the distance. Hence, the majority of the population cannot afford it. This factor may obstruct the air ambulance services market growth in the upcoming years.
