Market Overview

Eye disease is a global health concern that negatively impacts individuals' physical and mental health. The increasing prevalence of eye diseases is increasing the demand for ophthalmic PACS, globally. In many of the developed and developing countries, eye conditions have emerged as potential threats to the eyesight. According to the World Health Organization, in 2018, it was estimated that approximately 1.3 billion people live with some form of vision impairment, and 188.5 million people have a mild vision impairment, 217 million have moderate to severe vision impairment, and 36 million people are blind. Furthermore, as per the Journal of Ophthalmology, diabetic retinopathy is most prevalent in the working-age population globally, and age-related eye diseases are increasing in the older population. More than 80% of the vision impairments are curable and requires proper diagnosis for their treatment. Hence, the rising burden of eye-related disorders is projecting a great impact on the growth of market studied.

Key Market Trends

Integrated PACS Segment is Expected to Show Better Growth in the Forecast Years

Based on Type, it is segmented into Integrated PACS and Standalone PACS. The integration of medical images as part of the patient record has always been a critical component of documentation and information, which support clinical decisions. PACS integration with Radiology Information systems (RIS) ensures improved workflow within the organization, eliminating redundant data entry and data maintenance. Integrated PACS has many benefits, including reliability, reducing the complexity of managing and storing the patient data, and increased accuracy. These PACS can be integrated with EHR systems for providing access to the patient's file with diagnostic data. Thus, increased benefits from the integrated PACS are likely to augment the market during the forecast period.
