The market for picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) has been growing pervasively, garnering colossal prominence. The rapidly increasing prevalence of many chronic diseases such as cardiovascular and neurological diseases that are augmenting the demand for diagnostic and imaging services are contributing to the growth of the market. Moreover, increasing investments from public-private organizations and the rising number of diagnostic imaging centers are escalating the market on the global platform.

Acknowledging the exponential traction that the market is witnessing currently, Market Research Future (MRFR) in its recently published study report asserts that the global picture archiving and communications systems market would create a substantial revenue pocket by 2023, registering approximately 7.0% CAGR throughout the forecast period (2017–2023).

The rising demand for the diagnostic process along with the increasing R&D activities in life sciences are boosting the growth of the market.  Additional factors such as the spreading awareness towards picture archiving and communications systems and the vast uptake of PACS in the academic medical centers, by the surgeons and biomedical researchers, propel the market growth.

Conversely, factors such as the high investment required for the initial set up of these systems alongside the lack of healthcare insurance and awareness in poor healthcare system are impeding the growth of the Picture Archiving and Communication Systems market size, especially in underdeveloped and developing regions. On the other hand, the stringent regulatory approval procedures are obstructing the growth of the PACS market majorly in the developed regions.

Nevertheless, technological advancements in the medical imaging devices, improving regulatory framework, and unmet medical needs would support the global PACS market, creating significant growth opportunities for the players operating in the market.
