The global market for healthcare facilities is dominated by the sale of ambulatory surgery centres, representing almost 28%. In order to stimulate the influx of patients as well as generate increased revenues through improved quality care and satisfaction, ASCs around the world continue to strive for a wider range of services. As the entry of patients into childcare procedures is simplified, the availability of physicians will become easier.



  • For help, ambulatory surgical centers are increasingly turning to IT

  • The growth of the ambulatory surgical center market is supported by government support and favourable reimbursement.

Development of day care surgery centres is a priority for the government. Furthermore, in order to accommodate more patient care and increase the number of ambulatory surgery centres, it offers complementary healthcare services. In addition, the outpatient services offer a favourable reimbursement policy and provide patients with appropriate healthcare and insurance coverage to help them pay their costs more easily.


  • Investing much on infrastructure and deploying at a high cost

The growth of the global market for Ambulatory Surgical Centres is projected to be restrained by high deployment costs and a lack of credibility among patients with regard to outpatient services, since new methods are not yet being adopted.


  • Cloud-based solutions are in higher demand.

  • Patient-centered care is becoming more popular.

  • Increasing investments by healthcare companies

In order to establish mobile surgery centres, healthcare companies invest in research and development activities. The main strategies taken by companies in order to increase their revenues are mergers, acquisitions, collaboration and recognition via comprehensive R&D aimed at strengthening the product portfolio.


  • Issues concerning interoperability

Impact of Russia-Ukraine War

Conflicts can lead to shortages or delays in obtaining essential supplies for ambulatory surgical procedures, affecting the supply chain of medical equipment, devices and pharmaceutical products. The 218 hospitals which have been reported damaged or destroyed, one out of every ten in Ukraine has sustained direct damage from an attack. In the eastern part of the country, destruction is most pronounced. Almost all health facilities have been exposed to some degree around certain cities and towns. Almost 8 out of 10 health care service establishments where medical assistance is provided were damaged or destroyed, according to the Ukrainian Health Centre's information in Mariupol and southern part of Donetsk oblast. Kharkivsk, Donetsk, Luhansk, Khersonsk, and Kyivsk were the regions with the highest number of hospital attacks. Also, the financial instability, currency fluctuations and inflation could result from geopolitical tensions and economic sanctions associated with the war, potentially increasing operating costs for ambulatory surgery centres.

Impact of Economic Slowdown

Due to the documented links between employment, access to healthcare and health outcomes, the economic crisis has had a significant impact on the use of healthcare services. However, patients are choosing outpatient medical care for lower costs, greater accessibility and a better patient experience as a result of increasing and expanding ambulatory healthcare facilities. In view of the fact that costs for both patients and payers can be significantly lower in this category of care, it is estimated that ambulatory healthcare services will continue to grow at an exponential rate this year. In particular, because of the reduction in costs related to fewer staff, lower supplies and lesser facilities, ambulatory surgery centres tend to have lower operating costs than other hospitals. In order to take advantage of this shift in healthcare services, this economic opportunity has led to the acquisition of partnerships in the field of ambulatory healthcare by healthcare systems that are known to primarily operate hospitals. Healthcare systems buying into the ambulatory healthcare space may contribute to the aggressive growth of ambulatory healthcare facilities in the coming years, as these systems strategize to combat the projected economics slowdown.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
