Europe Ambulatory Surgical & Emergency Center Services Market: (Pain Management, Ophthalmology, Gastrointestinal, Pulmonary, Dermatology, Vascular, Urology, ENT, Orthopedics, Obstetrics and General Surgery) - Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020

Ambulatory surgery is defined as surgical and diagnostic intervention that does not require overnight hospital stay. The ambulatory surgery has been increasingly adopted by patient population in Europe owing to its safe, high quality, cost-effective and time saving approach to perform surgical interventions. In addition, advancements in technologies that enables healthcare professionals to perform multiple minimally invasive surgical procedures in a single day further drives the market growth in Europe. For example, advent of minimally invasive surgeries such as laparoscopic procedures has permitted complex surgeries such as gallbladder, hysterectomy surgeries to be done in reduced amount of time. However, factors such as lack of adequate medical facilities and favorable reimbursement policies for inpatient surgeries as compared to outpatient surgeries might impede the growth of Europe ambulatory surgical and emergency center services market. 

In 2013, the orthopedic surgeries segment accounted for the largest share. Dominance of this market segment was majorly due to high cost of procedures coupled with rising prevalence of arthroscopic procedures. The ophthalmology surgeries segment is expected to grow at the highest growth rate during the forecast period from 2014 to 2020. Factors such as rising number of ophthalmology procedures performed and increasing number of cataract, diabetic retinopathy and other ophthalmology surgeries are supporting the growth of this market segment in the European region. In terms of market volume, ophthalmology segment recorded the highest number of ambulatory procedures and is expected to dominate the market in future. Growing number of ophthalmology procedures that can be done on a daily basis coupled with advancement in ophthalmology ambulatory surgical procedures will help this segment to record high revenue. Moreover, orthopedic surgeries recorded second highest number of ambulatory procedures in 2013. The growth of this segment is due to persistent rise in geriatric population coupled with growing trend of minimally invasive surgeries that helps large number of orthopedic surgeries to be done on ambulatory basis. 

U.K. dominated the Europe ambulatory surgical and emergency center services market in 2013. The dominance of this region was mainly attributed to rising government and medical professional bodies’ initiatives to promote ambulatory services in the country. For instance, in November 2014, the British Association of Day Surgery in collaboration with the Healthcare Conferences UK (HCUK) organized an event titled “Improving Quality in Day Surgery”. This event aims at discussing new way to improve quality of day surgery in European countries such as the U.K. and Germany. Rest of the Europe (RoE) accounted for the highest number of ambulatory surgeries performed in 2013 and is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period from 2014 to 2020. Rising number of day surgeries performed in countries such as Denmark, Netherlands, Sweden and other regions will help Rest of Europe to record high number of ambulatory surgeries.

Some of the key players having presence in the Europe Ambulatory Surgical and Emergency Center market are Community Health Systems, Inc., IntegraMed America, Inc., Nueterra Healthcare, Terveystalo Healthcare Oyj, Symbion, Inc., AmSurg Corporation, Medical Facilities Corporation, Surgery Partners, Healthway Medical Corporation Ltd., Eifelhoehen-Klinik AG and others. Among these players, companies such as Community Health Systems, Inc., Healthway Medical Corporation Ltd. and Medical Facilities Corporation have the presence in majority of ambulatory surgeries.

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.
