Ambulatory Surgery Centers Market Worth USD 93.46 Billion by 2025: Hexa Research


FELTON, California, March 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The global ambulatory surgery centers market is expected to reach USD 93.46 billion by 2025. The demand for outpatient surgery centers is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during 2017 - 2025. The growth is due to the increasing occurrence of chronic diseases, rising geriatric population, and surging healthcare cost.

Surgicenters specialize in same-day diagnostics, surgery, and preventive procedures and provide quality service at optimal cost. According to the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA), procedures performed in ASCs are around 50.0% cheaper than Hospital Outpatient Department (HOPD). The significant cost reduction in the diagnosis, surgical procedures, and preventive treatment is expected to promote the utility of ambulatory surgery centers in the coming years.

Rising government expenditure towards the development of ambulatory facilities to increase accessibility and reduce the cost of treatment will also fuel growth in the market. In the U.S., the government initiated Medicare's Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program under the Affordable Care Act. This initiative was started with the objective to provide primary care to patients at accessible point-of-care centers and reduce avoidable costs including hospital stay.

ASCs are used as alternatives for the surgery of various diseases including cardiovascular disease, cataract, chronic pulmonary disorder, and stroke. A wide-scale prevalence of these diseases adds to the growth prospect of surgicenters as patients look for affordable and convenient medical care. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2016, around 17.9 million people died due to cardiovascular diseases, which accounted for around 31.0% of the total global deaths during the year.

North America is a key market for same day surgery centers market where increasing government funding to advance primary care services and increasing coverage for outpatient services has spurred growth in the market. In 2017, North America accounted for around 47.0% of the global surgicenters market.
