North America Ambulatory Surgical Centers Market: Top 5 trends boosting the industry growth through 2024

North America ambulatory surgical centers market is likely to register favorable growth over the forthcoming time period owing to rising prevalence of chronic diseases and geriatric population across the region. Elderly population is more likely to suffer from an array of different diseases owing to functional and anatomic changes occurring in their bodies. According to World Population Prospects data, geriatric patient pool around the age of 60 years and above is anticipated to triple and double by 2100 and 2050 respectively.

Additionally, favorable government as well as reimbursement policies are also key factors that are likely to contribute towards the market growth. Increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries and rising patient inclination towards less invasive or non-invasive procedures will greatly fuel the revenue graph of ASCs market.

Below are some key trends that would majorly influence North America market expansion:

Rising prominence of physicians only ownership model

With respect to ownership, in 2017, the physicians only segment was valued at approximately $13 billion and is likely to witness similar growth trend over the coming years. This anticipated growth is accredited to availability of favorable reimbursement facilities and cost-effective treatments given at doctor owned ASCs. Ability of physicians to work together with neurology and orthopedic specialists will further contribute towards segmental growth over the coming time period.
