The global medical image management market is witnessing considerable growth due to technological advancements in diagnostic imaging modalities and image management solutions, increasing usage of imaging equipment, and increasing adoption of Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA). Moreover, increasing investment in the medical imaging, increasing adoption of imaging management system by small imaging centers and hospitals, and rapidly growing big data in healthcare are supporting the demand for medical image management systems. The increasing government initiatives to encourage electronic medical record adoption is further expected to boost the market. Based on product type, picture archiving and communication system (PACS) segment leads the global market in terms of size, due to technological advancements in PACS, increasing volume of imaging procedure and adoption of the PACS in new imaging segments such as mammography, endoscopy, oncology and ophthalmology. Hospitals have been the largest user of medical image management systems, owing to growing awareness about early diagnosis of diseases, increasing digitalization of patient’s data, rapid growth in adoption of EMR, and technological advancement in imaging modalities.
Medical image management is achieving medical images electronically with the assistance of image management systems. These systems gather, organize and control medical imaging data with various other patient information in healthcare systems. Application-independent clinical archives (AICA), PACS, VNA and are the key technologies used in image management systems.
The increasing female aging population is propelling the growth of the global Hysteroscope market. As reported by UN DESA (United Nation Department of Economic and Social Affairs) in the year 2013, the elder population is predominantly female. As women tend to live longer than men, while older women have outnumbered older men almost everywhere in the world. It further reported that in the year 2013, globally, there were 85 men per 100 women in the age group 60 years or plus; and 61 men per 100 women in the age group 80 years or plus. The elderly population is more susceptible to gynaecological problems, such as abnormal uterine bleeding, fibroids, and polyps, as compared to adults, which is fuelling the demand of the global hysteroscope market. Aging in females leads to changes in hormones leading to irregular menses, which contributes to the demand for Geographically, North America has been the largest market for medical image management, owing to increasing geriatric population, and increasing prevalence of various diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular disease in the region. The U.S. contributed largest revenue to the North American as well as global medical image management market. The increasing adoption of technologically advanced imaging systems, and increasing awareness of the benefits of early diagnosis of diseases are the key growth driving factor for the U.S. medical image management market. Globally, the medical image management market is expected to witness the fastest growth in Asia-Pacific during the forecast period. The highest growth in the region is attributed to the increasing geriatric population, large pool of patients, and increasing prevalence of various diseases in the region.
