Medical Animation Market Size, Segmentation, Opportunities, Trends, Growth and Industry Forecast To 2020


Medical animation is an educational film based on surgical, procedural, and healthcare-related topics using 3D graphics. Medical animation is addressed to a wide range of audiences, including researchers, students, public, and is most commonly used as an educational tool for professionals and students. Medical education at present has evolved from basic wire-frame models to intricate and interactive visualization tools also combined with head-mounted displays, sensory input, haptic tools, cave automatic virtual environments, and stereoscopic lenses.

The medical animation market will undergo rapid growth in the upcoming decade. This growth is contributed by increasing adoption by pharmaceutical and medical device companies, growing penetration of remote access and education tools, and a surge in medical education. On the other hand, the high cost of medical animation tools and services may restrain the growth of the medical animation market, particularly in developing countries. However, efficient efforts towards bridging this gap in emerging markets through government funding and public and private sector collaboration will open further avenues for the global medical animation market. Tools such as 3D animation are currently experiencing the highest demand in this market. 3D animation efficiently offers a greater perspective to the viewers and thus enables a better sense of volume and depth of objects under consideration. Efficient use of medical animation is expected to open potential opportunities in the field of therapeutics, surgical procedures, drug discovery and development, public education, and other such areas.
