Revenue Opportunities Continue to Exist Even as Market Advances toward Vendor-neutral Solutions

The research service provides an in-depth analysis of the Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) market across six Southeast Asian countries with a focus on end-user and radiology decision-maker needs, challenges, and vendor preferences. The study provides opportunity analysis, vendor landscape, and evolving technology and business model trends between 2016 and 2021.

Key Target Audience:
The study is an excellent starting point for both multinational imaging informatics leaders as well as local vendors aiming to enter and expand penetration in Southeast Asia. The research service is also relevant for healthcare providers, as it highlights the key challenges faced by radiologists and emerging technologies that can help improve the efficiency and service quality of the radiology department.

Research Scope:
At a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.8% between 2016 and 2021, the Southeast Asian PACS market represents a rapidly maturing sector with revenue opportunities for both new and renewal solutions. The market stands divided between two distinct types of consumers: the experienced PACS decision makers and the novices. Organizations that are currently investing in their second or third generation of PACS are well aware of the workflow issues that may arise due to an under-planned implementation.

These experienced PACS decision makers are turning toward vendor-neutral solutions and heavily emphasize the need for better interoperability in the radiology department. Furthermore, several hospitals, especially in the Philippines and Vietnam, will be investing in their first PACS solution and are thus, more budget conscious and also want to take “baby steps” toward digitalization.

Indonesia and Malaysia are the fastest growing countries in the region, followed closely by Thailand. Singapore represents a progressive market that is ready for sophisticated solutions including advanced viewers, imaging analytics, and decision support tools. The study provides further insights into target hospital segments and ideal channels for market penetration across each of these countries.

A key finding of the study is that many PACS end users and decision makers feel that vendors do not collaborate enough with hospitals while building the solution. Healthcare providers would like to work with vendors who truly understand individual hospital workflows and then design solutions. While not so much interested in modularity, providers would certainly want their imaging IT solutions to be scalable, keeping in mind the fast pace of hospital infrastructure and services expansion in the region.
