The Europe PACS and RIS market is expected to reach US$ 1,329.87 Mn in 2027 from US$ 752.02 Mn in 2018. The market is estimated to grow with a CAGR of 7.0% from 2019-2027.
The growth of the PACS and RIS market is primarily attributed to the developments in diagnostic imaging modalities coupled with rising number of diagnostic tests procedures and new product launches & FDA approvals. However, availability of better substitutes is likely to pose a negative impact on the market growth. On the other hand, growing medical technology industry the European region is likely to have a positive impact on the growth of the PACS and RIS market in the coming years.
During recent years, there have been a various developments in imaging modalities within healthcare for diagnostic purposes. Radiology has developed as a recent trend towards computerized management in the health service and has responded to the demand for cost-efficient and rapid communication between departments of radiology and their users. Medical imaging is a vital part in medical care and treatment across the region. Rising awareness regarding early diagnosis of diseases has led to an increase in the total number of diagnostic tests procedures performed around the world. According to the National Health Services (NHS) UK, there were 4.1 million imaging tests conducted in England in the 12 months from February 2016 to January 2017. Of these, 3.49 million imaging tests were reported to have taken place in January 2017. The national rate for CT scans were 126 per 1,000 individuals around 2014 and 2015. Rates ranged from 209 (New Brunswick) and 170 (Newfoundland and Labrador) to 88 (Alberta) and 93 (Prince Edward Island). As per the World Health Organization (WHO), with improved health care policy and the better availability of medical equipment, there has been rise in the number of global imaging-based procedures. Thus, the growing number of diagnostic imaging procedures performed across the region resulting in increasing requirement of consumables for tests are likely expected to drive the growth of the PACS and RIS market over the coming years in the region.
