In 2011, the total U.S. market for PACS was valued at over $1 billion.

The PACS market consists of revenue generated from new unit sales, system upgrades and service & maintenance. As the market begins to mature, there will be a decline in new unit sales as the installed base reaches full penetration. However, market growth is expected to be sustained by revenue generated through service contracts as healthcare providers require some form of service & maintenance in order to sustain their PACS systems. Previously, the industry had predicted strong growth; however, it has been hindered by the slow recovery following the 2008 financial crisis and the recent focus of healthcare recovery spending on the implementation of EMR systems.

Scope: This report pertains to a forecast period of 10 years (2008 - 2018) for the U.S.
