The global ambulatory services market is expected to reach USD 4,099.6
billion by 2025.

Increase in the availability of technologically advanced products,
increase in the incidence of chronic diseases, growth in ageing
population, and technological advancements in surgeries to reduce cost &
treatment time are among key factors likely to drive the market during
the forecast period.

Ambulatory services are likely to witness high growth in the coming
years due to increase in the number of surgeries, the availability of
private & public funding, as well as the availability of same-day
surgeries at low cost to offer better medical services.

According to Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP), in 2014,
17.2 million surgeries were performed in ambulatory surgical settings
and 22 million surgeries in hospital outpatient settings.

In addition, various mergers & acquisitions are anticipated to propel
the market. For instance, in December 2015, Premier Emergency Medical
Specialists was acquired by AmSurg. This acquisition was expected to
help AmSurg enter the emergency medicine specialty.

Technological advancements pertaining to diagnosis and minimally
invasive surgeries are likely to reduce complications and help shorten
hospital stays.

components of ambulatory care. For instance, in January 2017, Arterys,
