Overview of the Ambulatory Surgical and Emergency Center Services Market
Ambulatory surgery can be defined as the diagnostic and surgical intervention in which overnight hospital stay is not required. Innovations in technologies that enable healthcare professionals to execute a large number of minimally invasive surgical procedures in a single day have propelled this market in Europe.
In terms of types of procedure, the ambulatory surgical and emergency center services market is segmented into gastrointestinal, ophthalmology, orthopedics, dermatology, ear, nose, and throat (ENT), urology, obstetrics, vascular, general surgery, pulmonary, and pain management. The segment of ophthalmology surgeries is predicted to expand at the highest growth rate in the forecast horizon between 2014 and 2020. Increasing number of ophthalmology procedures and rising patients with diabetic retinopathy, cataract, and other eye conditions are fuelling the growth of this segment in Europe. This segment is said to constitute the highest count of ambulatory procedures and is predicted to lead the market in the forthcoming future.
On the other hand, in 2013, orthopedic surgeries were the second most common type of ambulatory procedure and the reason for the growth of this segment is due to the steady rise in the aging population and the expanding trend of surgeries that are minimally invasive, which facilitates a huge number of orthopedic surgeries to take place on an ambulatory basis in a relatively short time.
On the basis of geography, the European market is segmented into seven key regions, namely the U.K., France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Italy, and Rest of Europe (RoE). In 2013, the U.K. led the ambulatory surgical and emergency center services market in Europe, due to the increasing initiatives by medical and government professional bodies for the promotion of ambulatory services in the nation. RoE represented majority of the ambulatory surgeries that took place in 2013.
Europe’s increasing geriatric population is predicted to increase the demand for ambulatory surgical and emergency center services. Nonetheless, factors such as supportive reimbursement policies in inpatient surgeries in comparison to outpatient surgeries and absence of sophisticated medical facilities may restrain the growth of ambulatory surgical and emergency center services market in Europe.
