2018 Data, 5-Year History, 2019 – 2023 Forecast


Market Survey of an $800 million product segment of the emergency vehicle industry


This market research report by SpecialtyResearch.net examines the business of ambulance manufacturing in North America. The objective of the report is to provide a vista view of this industry, in keeping with SRN’s highly regarded investigations and solid analytical skills in market research work in the global vehicular industry.


The manufacture of ambulances in North America is a challenging and differentiated endeavor, due to the need to incorporate numerous medical and complex life support components. These components must be fitted into a limited space on a light- or medium-duty van truck/body, while meeting all necessary safety requirements.


The report examines production of three ambulance body types: Type I ambulances, which feature modular patient transport compartments mounted on light- or medium-duty cab chassis; Type II ambulances, built into light-duty vans, with the patient transport compartment contained within the van body; and Type III ambulances, built on cutaway van chassis with a transferable, modular ambulance body.


Twenty-one companies US and Canadian companies manufactured more than 6,400 ambulances in 2018, for a combined annual value of $800 million. This is a significant niche market that has a dominant primary player, but also a strong secondary player emerging out of a recent merger/acquisition. The report provides a comprehensive competitive analysis of all participants, with market size and share estimates in units and dollars, and by type and by chassis class; this data is also provided in MS Excel format.


Going forward, the primary market driver will be the need to make vehicles more fuel efficient, even while incorporating additional medical equipment that adds weight and decreases mileage. The punishment of daily use and relatively rough handling, due to the rigors of the aggressive driving style required, causes additional wear to the vehicles so that their average life span is about five to seven years, on average.


The ambulance market is a mature, stable market with low growth rates. Units manufactured per year varies by ~10% around the long-term average.


This project is a “bottoms up” approach based on examining virtually all industry participants in North America and aggregating their sales and unit production into an industry-wide picture. Research methods include not only all available public domain resources, but also significant primary interview content with industry participants at trade conventions, and through telephone contact. This is an extensive project requiring expert analysis into this industry and its dynamics. SRN’s long-time background in corporate business development and specific vertical industry experience in trucks/transportation provide the knowledge and expertise for this extensive project.
