Air Ambulance - Overview

A plane or helicopter equipped with everything needed to transport sick or injured people to a hospital is known as an air ambulance. It is a specially equipped fixed-wing airplane or helicopter using highly specialized medical equipment. The purpose of air ambulance services is to transport people. Patients who are ill or injured are transported from one location to another. Moreover, each air ambulance's equipment can range from breathing apparatus and monitoring systems, pacemakers, and defibrillators, to blood transfusion equipment and a comprehensive supply of medication.

Saudi Arabia Air Ambulance Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Rising Rates of Heart Attacks, Strokes, and Accidents

For patients who need to be transported to a critical care facility for time-sensitive therapy following a stroke, heart attack, or another traumatic event, air ambulance services are increasingly being used. Every year, about 2 million Saudi Arabians suffer significant injuries in car accidents. In addition, the absence of prompt ambulance services at various sites contributes to nearly 1 million fatalities nationwide each year from cardiovascular disorders. In many situations of trauma, stroke, and heart attacks, time-dependent medical or surgical intervention is necessary. For instance, the effective treatment of ischemic stroke requires the prompt restoration of blood flow to the brain with the aid of an emergency "IV Injection" of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator or an endovascular procedure, both of which can be effectively provided through air ambulance services at various locations. Increased rates of heart attacks, strokes, and trauma thereby open up more room for the expansion of air ambulance services across the country.

Quickly Advancing Technology in Air Ambulance Services

The level of care given to patients being carried in air ambulances is improving because of the use of cutting-edge medical technology. Additionally, thanks to technologically enhanced communication systems, real-time data on a patient's health can be transmitted to hospital specialists, enabling the medical staff to plan for emergencies. To offer patients with emergency medical care, air ambulances are now outfitted with critical care equipment like a ventilator, heart monitor, and defibrillator. All these factors boost the growth of the Saudi Arabia Air Ambulance Market during the forecast period (2022-2028).

Medical Tourism Expansion

The growth of the Saudi Arabia Air Ambulance Market in the years up to 2028 is mostly attributable to the expansion of medical tourism, which allows both foreign nationals and country residents to travel overseas for medical treatment. Additionally, the air ambulances that are currently on the market are fully outfitted with the most cutting-edge medical gear that is portable and only needs a small number of medical professionals. The forecasted expansion of the Saudi Arabian air ambulance industry is further aided by the rising number of emergency responders using air ambulances.

Restraints

High Cost of Air Medical Services & Difficulties with Payment

The cost of air ambulance services is much greater than that of ground ambulance services. Although government and private health insurance programs in Saudi Arabia offer some level of coverage for air ambulance services, the reimbursement rates are quite low when compared to what air medical service providers charge. About 60% and 34%, respectively, of the average cost of air medical transport, are covered by Medicare and Medicaid, leaving patients in many situations with a sizable out-of-pocket price. The high cost of air medical services and difficulties with reimbursement creates a barrier to the market's expansion. All these factors hinder the growth of the Saudi Arabia Air Ambulance Market

The market's growth is being hampered by the temporary closure of various design, development, and manufacturing facilities. Slowing national economies, as well as a focus on fighting the pandemic, negatively impacted market growth. The lockdown occurred as a result of an increase in COVID-19 cases, which temporarily halted various operations in the aviation sector such as manufacturing, raw material supply, and aircraft deliveries. Domestic air passenger numbers have recovered to pre-pandemic levels, particularly in developing regions.
