Market Overview:
Ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) are modern health care facilities focused primarily on providing same-day surgical care, including diagnostic and preventive procedures. ASCs provide lower costs and increased convenience compared to hospital outpatient departments. Procedures performed in ASCs include cataract removal, colonoscopy, orthopedics, pain management, podiatry, and gynecology among others. ASCs allow common low-risk procedures to be performed in an outpatient setting safely and effectively.

Market Dynamics:
As ASCs provide significant cost savings compared to hospital outpatient departments, their use has been increasing rapidly. On average, procedures performed in ASCs cost 60% less than the same procedures performed in hospital outpatient departments. This large difference in costs is driving growth in the number and types of procedures performed in ASCs. Additionally, ASCs offer convenience as they reduce wait times and are often located closer to patients’ homes compared to hospitals. The preference for minimally invasive surgeries has also been increasing which can often be conveniently performed on an outpatient basis in ASCs. Furthermore, the growing geriatric population which is more prone to chronic diseases and surgical procedures is fueling the demand for low-cost and convenient outpatient care provided by ASCs.

SWOT Analysis

Opportunity: Rising geriatric population prone to chronic diseases and surgical treatments provide growth opportunities. Increasing preference for outpatient surgeries over inpatient hospital stays can drive the market.

Threats: Stringent regulations pertaining to facilities and certifications increase operational costs for ASCs. Growing preference for homecare surgeries due to COVID-19 pandemic can impact market growth.
