Key Findings

•The Advanced visualisation (AV) Solutions market in western Europe includes analytical and post-processing software solutions sold by original equipment manufacturers (OEM) of imaging modalities, independent software vendors (ISVs), and Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) vendors.
•AV solutions are offered by different vendors either as stand-alone workstation-based solutions or thin client solutions which can be used across an enterprise.
•While workstation-based solutions form a core part of the diagnostic departments in many small healthcare institutions and imaging labs, many medium and large establishments with a large amount of post-processing workflow are adopting enterprise-wide thin client solutions.
•Though thin client solutions will continue to be the largest revenue generating type of AV solutions, workstation-based solutions are unlikely to become obsolete.
•The critical application areas of AV are in cardiology, neurology, and vascular imaging. Recently, application in oncology, interventional imaging, minimally invasive surgeries, and endoscopy has been growing rapidly.
•Many OEM vendors of AV solutions were predominantly offering workstation-based dedicated systems. But recently, their focus has shifted to enterprise-wide solutions.
•ISVs generally offer vendor-neutral thin client solutions, which can be used in a multi-modality scenario for a wide range of specialties.
•The demand for AV solutions, delivered over PACS platform, is bound to grow during the forecast period as many PACS will be replaced across Europe.
•Many small vendors are offering add-on features to improve the application range of existing solutions.
•The total revenue from the sales of AV solutions, both workstation-based and thin client, in 2013 was $ xx million. The AV solutions market is expected to grow consistently during the forecast period, with about xx % increase in total revenue from 2013 to 2020.
