Radiology PACS will continue to be the largest sub-segment, and will grow at a 10% CAGR during 2009–2016, driven by replacement sales and government incentives for healthcare IT. Governments in countries such as the US, China, and Canada are providing financial incentives for hospitals and physicians alike to adopt robust healthcare IT infrastructure.

Over the past decade, governments across the world have recognized the importance of IT in healthcare. There has been growing evidence of the time and the cost efficiencies these systems can bring to an already overstretched healthcare system. Since the IT infrastructure requires a significant amount of funds, governments have stepped up the funding for various IT programs. Since PACS forms a basic level of healthcare IT infrastructure required by hospitals, the financial incentives for IT as a whole are likely to push small hospitals and physicians into investing in PACS. In 2009, the US government dedicated a $19.2 billion stimulus package to healthcare infrastructure and Electronic Health Records (EHR) implementation by both hospitals and physicians under the HITECH Act. It is expected to stimulate increased spending on healthcare IT infrastructure in the next two years. Similarly, European governments have set aside substantial budgets for healthcare IT infrastructure. For instance, through National Programme for Information Technology (NPfIT) in England, the UK spends more money on healthcare IT than any other country in Europe, with $3.5 billion of the EU’s total of $11.1 billion annually.

GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare, FujiFilm and Agfa were the leading companies in the global PACS market in 2009. GE Healthcare was the market leader with a 15% market share, followed by Philips Healthcare (14%). GE Healthcare markets the Centricity brand of enterprise PACS products.

FujiFilm, Agfa, McKesson, Siemens, Carestream and Fujitsu are the other leading companies with 12%, 11%, 8%, 8%, 5% and 4% market shares, respectively.
