This industry research report identifies AmSurg, United Surgical Partners International, Surgery Partners, and Surgical Care Affiliates as the key vendors in the global ambulatory surgical centers market. This report also presents a detailed analysis of the market by surgery centers (single-specialty centers and multi-specialty centers), by modality (hospital-affiliated ASCs and freestanding ASCs), by services (diagnostic and surgical), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Ambulatory surgery center industry overview

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global ambulatory surgical centers market will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of more than 4% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the increasing incidence of chronic diseases as one of the primary growth factors for the ambulatory surgery centers market.

Ambulatory surgery center market growth

The constantly changing eating habits of people across the globe and the sedentary lifestyle greatly impacts the homeostasis of the body. This will make people susceptible to cardiovascular diseases and chronic illnesses. As a result, the coming years will witness an increase in the adoption of minimally invasive techniques such as radiofrequency ablation devices to treat chest and joint pains, dermatological conditions, and liver and kidney problems. Since ambulatory surgical centers use endoscopic procedures and surgical robots to increase the precision and ability of surgeons who perform minimally invasive procedures, a rise in the number of chronic disorders will consequently boost the revenue of outpatient surgery centers.

Ambulatory surgery center market size based on geography

This market study estimates that in terms of geographic regions, the Americas will be the major revenue contributor to the ambulatory center market throughout the forecast period. The US will be the major contributor in this region where the rise in the incidence of gastrointestinal disorders and chronic diseases such as colon and rectal cancer and severe abdominal diseases drive the market’s growth prospects. Additionally, the increasing number of eye disorders and the awareness about the laser eye surgeries performed in ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs), will also propel the growth of the market in this region.

Ambulatory surgical centers market: Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of several well-established global players and regional or local companies. The market is highly competitive, and the emergence of new ambulatory surgery center companies will further intensify the level of competition in the market during the forecast period. Vendors in the market offer a broad range of healthcare systems that are mostly similar, which in turn, leads to price wars.

Ambulatory surgical centers market segmentation by surgery centers

During 2015, the multi-specialty center's segment accounted for the major shares and dominated this market. The multi-specialty centers offer a wide category of services that are performed by specialists and surgeons and is similar to a hospital outpatient facility where various surgeries are performed. The availability of additional specialties and the increasing number of experienced physicians will drive the growth of the multi-specialty centers in the coming years.

Ambulatory care market segmentation by modality 

  • Hospital-affiliated ASCs
  • Freestanding ASCs

The hospital-based ambulatory surgical facilities usually procure medical products and consumables on bulk and have the high-quality medical infrastructure. They are usually affiliated with large or multi-specialty hospitals and have different cost and reimbursement policies when compared to freestanding ASCs. According to this market study, the hospital-affiliated ASC segment will account for the major market shares and dominate the market throughout the next four years.
