Emergency medical equipment is an integral part of health care systems. It comprises specialized equipment and products to aid in the provision of emergency care. Severe physical injuries such as trauma and medical emergencies such as cardiac arrest are life threatening and require quick medical attention. Thus, a rise in the incidence of trauma injuries and other medical emergencies creates lucrative opportunities for the emergency medical equipment market. As per the U.S. American Association for the Surgery of Trauma, around 3 million non-fatal injuries occurs each year in the U.S, which lead to over 150,000 deaths. Improving hospital care facilities, rise in demand for emergency medical equipment, and increase in government expenditure are anticipated to drive the global emergency medical equipment market. However, high price of emergency medical equipment and product recall due to improper functioning are expected to hinder the growth of the market during forecast period.
