The Global Healthcare Cloud Picture Archiving & Communications System Market size is expected to reach $800.7 Million by 2026, rising at a market growth of 8.4% CAGR during the forecast period. Healthcare Cloud Picture archiving and communication system (PACS) refers to a technology that is used in medical imaging particularly in clinical settings for storage and communication. This technology offers cost-efficient and manageable access to images from various source modalities like ultrasound, nuclear medicine, X-ray plain film (PF), computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET). The advanced healthcare practices depend on various resources which develop demand for IT technologies to incorporate these resources, thereby creating a beneficial environment for the deployment of Picture Archiving & Communications System (PACS).

The growing requirements to store, manage, and transfer the day-by-day increasing healthcare information is a major factor boosting the adoption of these solutions. PACS (picture archiving & communication system) assists in reducing the overloading of data and speeds up disease detection. Moreover, the technological advancements regarding healthcare solutions and the co-existence of healthcare and IT solutions have boosted the growth of the market. Cloud-based PACS provides safe and secure storage of data. It is because PACSs are less prone to damage resulted from hardware, and hence patient data is safe. Additionally, the rising demand for medical and clinical image storage in all forms, combined with the increased utilization of image archiving, is anticipated to boost the healthcare cloud PACS market growth.

By End Use

Based on End Use, the market is segmented into Hospitals, Diagnostic Centers and Other End Uses. The hospital segment procured the highest revenue share in 2019. These health organizations are presently advancing with respect to the usage of technology. Healthcare cloud PACS is being utilized widely in hospitals because of the increasing number of complexities in diseases. Further, the rising demand for early diagnosis is anticipated to boost the demand for cloud PACS in hospitals.

By Application

Based on Application, the market is segmented into Cardiology, Orthopedics, Ophthalmology, Oncology, Veterinary Medicine and Others. The cardiology segment is expected to observe considerable growth over the forthcoming years. The development of the segment is a result of the growing cases of cardiac disorders, which is anticipated to have a considerable impact on the adoption of the solutions.

By Region

Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa. The Asia-Pacific market is estimated to develop at the highest CAGR during the forecast years owing to the consistent up-gradation of the healthcare infrastructure. Further, the increasing acceptance of PACS in healthcare units, along with the rapid increment in manufacturing facilities in developing countries, like China and India, is further boosting the market growth.
