The rising incidence of chronic diseases is pushing up the requirement for advanced visualization technologies across the world. The incidence of heart diseases, respiratory diseases, and cancer is increasing rapidly due to the changing lifestyles of people and the lack of abundant availability of proper preventive care. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 117 million people in the U.S. were diagnosed with at least one chronic disease in 2012.
Moreover, the incidence of several types of cancer and their death rates rise with age. As a result, the surging geriatric population is positively impacting the demand for advanced visualization technologies. Geriatric people require extensive care, as they are highly vulnerable to diseases, due to their low immunity levels. Their bones are more fragile and less dense than that of younger individuals. Geriatric people are also more susceptible to chronic diseases, cardiovascular ailments, cancer, and neurological disorders.
Furthermore, the mushrooming prevalence of the disease is boosting the requirement for oncology services in various healthcare settings. This is making government organizations and healthcare providers develop facilities to effectively diagnose and treat the disease, thereby driving the progress of the advanced visualization industry. Advanced visualization methods are very efficient in diagnosing disorders and abnormalities of the brain and the spinal cord and also in detecting cardiovascular problems, musculoskeletal diseases, and tumors.
The biggest end users of advanced visualization techniques are imaging centers and hospitals. Between these, the requirement for these methods was found to be higher in hospitals during the last few years. This was because of the presence of a high regulatory compliance in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and the high prevalence of surgical procedures. In the future, the usage of these technologies would rise rapidly in imaging centers, due to the rising demand for early disease diagnosis.
The advanced visualization industry encompasses services and hardware and software. Of these, the demand for the advanced visualization software and hardware was higher in the last few years. In the upcoming years, the requirement for advanced visualization services would grow rapidly. The demand for implementation and training and education advanced visualization services would increase rapidly around the world in the forthcoming years. Because of this reason, the services category would register faster growth in the advanced visualization market in future.
Hence, it can be safely concluded that the demand for advanced visualization methods would skyrocket all over the world in the upcoming years, mainly because of the growing incidence of cancer, cardiovascular ailments, and various other chronic diseases and the surging geriatric population across the globe.
