- 3-D Medical Imaging Systems Market to Grow
ROCKVILLE, Md., Aug. 24, 2011 — The global 3-D medical imaging market is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 8.8 percent from now until 2014, according to MarketResearch.com, a provider of market-intelligence products and services.
The company has issued a new report, "Global 3D Medical Imaging Systems Market 2010-2014,” which indicates that the market largely is being driven by exponential demand in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.
"The 3-D medical imaging market in the APAC region is the fastest-growing market in the medical imaging sector,” said an industry analyst associated with the report. “China and India, which have large patient pools, are expected to develop an increasing number of new hospitals and diagnostic centers, which will boost the global 3-D medical imaging market. Moreover, because of the growing purchasing power and awareness about the technology in the region, there is increasing demand for 3-D medical imaging diagnosis."
The report also notes that the emergence of 4-D imaging (effectively, 3-D movies) is hindering the growth of the overall market, but that the visualization benefits of 3-D imaging are expected to keep driving the market. The market also is boosted, the report claims, by the increase in telesurgery.
