Increase in chronic diseases, growing geriatric population, high patient awareness and the introduction of PACS & advanced medical imaging systems, the “medical imaging systems market” is expected to grow over the forecast period.

Medical imaging systems market is expected to grow over the forecast period owing to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer. The other drivers of this market are growing geriatric population, high patient awareness and the introduction of PACS & advanced medical imaging systems. Globally, geriatric population base is more impressionable towards respiratory diseases, orthopedic and cardiovascular disease. Chronic diseases especially pertaining to cardiovascular systems, respiratory and brain will drive the market over the forecast period. Chronic disease is that type of disease which exists for more than three months and its effects are shown after some period of time.

As per the recent report published by WHO, it say that it is the leading cause of mortality globally. It says that as of 2013, nearly 45 million deaths occurred globally due to chronic diseases and among all deaths, its share is above 65%. Globally, medical imaging systems market as of 2013 was valued $ 25,710.5 million and over the forecast period i.e. upcoming five years, it will grow at a CAGR of over 6%. PACS stands for picture archiving and communication systems and it stores and transfer medical images, which obtained from medical imaging devices such as CT and X-ray. The market has a huge opportunity over the forecast period as due to increasing demand for computed and digital radiography systems and through introduction of mobile imaging systems.
