Medical Image Analysis Software Market by Type (Integrated, Standalone), Image (2D, 3D, 4D), Modality (CT, MRI, PET, Ultrasound, Radiography), Application (Orthopedic, Oncology, Nephrology), End User (Hospital, Research Center) - Global Forecasts to 2020
The medical image analysis software market is projected to reach USD 3,135.3 million by 2020 from USD 2,143.7 million in 2015, at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2015 to 2020. This market is segmented on the basis of software type, image type, modality, application, end user, and region.
Major factors contributing to the growth of the global medical image analysis software market include technological advancements, growing public- and private-sector investments, rapid growth in aging population, fusion of imaging technologies, growing applications of computer-aided diagnosis (CAD), rising incidences of chronic diseases, and increasing usage of imaging equipment. On the other hand, financial constraints, growing hacking-related risks associated with the use of medical equipment and software, and dearth of skilled professionals are the major factors restraining the growth of this market.
Various initiatives are being undertaken by governments across the globe to develop advanced imaging technologies. In this regard, the Government of Canada announced an investment of USD 750,000 (in July 2015) for the Canadian Imaging Research Centre to enhance research and commercialization opportunities in the health and life sciences sector. Moreover, the Chinese government announced the supply of updated and upgraded equipment to lower-tier rural and higher-tier hospitals, and the establishment of hospitals with modern equipment throughout the country.
Asia is expected to be the fastest-growing regional segment in the medical image analysis software market. The high growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing government initiatives for modernizing healthcare infrastructure, growth in the number new and advanced products being launched in emerging Asian countries, growing number of ongoing research activities, and expansion of various major players in a number of Asian countries.
