Report Overview

The global healthcare cloud picture archiving & communications system market size was valued at USD 422.5 million in 2019 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.1% from 2020 to 2027. The rising need to store, manage, and transfer the ever-increasing healthcare data is a key factor propelling the adoption of these solutions. PACS (picture archiving & communications system) helps in minimizing the overloading of data and accelerates disease detection. Furthermore, the advancements in technology pertaining to healthcare solutions as well as the co-existence of healthcare and IT solutions have fueled the market growth. Cloud-based PACS offers secure and safe data storage. This is because these PACSs are less vulnerable to damage caused by hardware, and thus patient data is secure. In addition, the increasing demand for universalization of clinical and medical image storage in all formats, coupled with the heightened usage of image archiving, is expected to propel the healthcare cloud PACS market growth.

North America healthcare cloud PACS market size, by application, 2016 - 2027 (USD Million)

The increasing prevalence of corona-positive patients, along with the shortage of healthcare professionals, owing to the imposed lockdowns has increased the necessity for improved healthcare solutions. The ability to analyze and further transmit healthcare data and information, review images and collaborate with clinical staff and healthcare professionals during the pandemic to ensure quality clinical outcomes has boosted and favored the demand for healthcare cloud-based PACS. Furthermore, rising physicians’ flexibility for the patient data accession to the diagnostic images anywhere during the pandemic has further propelled the market growth.

Aging is considered to be the greatest risk factor for chronic conditions. The geriatric population is highly susceptible to chronic conditions. Thus, the increasing global geriatric population in both developed and developing nations is expected to propel the growth of the market. Presently, there are about 46 million people in the U.S. belonging to the age group of 65 and above, and this number is expected to reach 98 million by 2060. In addition, according to the World Health Organization, the percentage of the geriatric population is expected to reach 22% in 2050 from 12% in 2015.

Application Insights

The others application segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 23.8% in 2019. It includes dentistry, dermatology, pathology, nuclear medicine, and clinical research. The increasing demand for medical images for the diagnosis of diseases on a daily basis is a major factor contributing to the growth of this segment. Furthermore, an increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases in patients is a high-impact rendering factor for the segment growth, which may lead to the adoption of healthcare cloud PACS for disease control.

The cardiology segment is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The growth of the segment is a consequence of the rising prevalence of cardiac disorders, which is expected to have a significant impact on the adoption of the solutions. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2017, 800,000 deaths were reported due to cardiac disorders in the U.S., which is also the leading cause of death in the country.

End-use Insights

The hospitals segment held the largest revenue share of 38.3% in 2019. These health organizations are currently advancing in terms of technology usage. Healthcare cloud PACS is being used extensively in hospitals due to the rising number of complications in diseases. Furthermore, the increasing demand for early diagnosis is expected to propel the demand for cloud PACS in hospitals.

Global healthcare cloud PACS market share, by end use, 2019 (%)

The diagnostic centers segment is anticipated to be the fastest-growing segment over the forecast period. The PACS solutions seamlessly integrate with EMR/EHRs as well as help in the exchange of patient health-related information. Moreover, the ability of PACS to deliver a comprehensive suite of clinical tools has increased workflow efficiency. Such factors are fueling the growth of the segment.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market with a share of 40.4% in 2019. The market growth can be attributed to various factors such as the presence of key players in the region and high investment in healthcare expenditure. Besides, technological advancements and high disposable income are some of the factors expected to fuel market growth over the forecast period.

The market in Asia Pacific is predicted to expand at the fastest CAGR of 9.6% over the forecast period due to the constant upgradation of the healthcare infrastructure. Moreover, the rising adoption of PACS in healthcare facilities, coupled with the rapid expansion of manufacturing facilities in emerging countries, such as China and India, is further propelling the market growth.
