Global Medical Animation Industry – Major Factors Boosting the Industry Growth

Medical animation is an educational video or movie created using 3D motion graphics to explain the mechanism of action (MoA) of a medical device, biomedical technology, pharmaceutical drug, or an anatomical or biological process.

Animations are used in the medical & pharmaceutical sectors for educational purposes, demonstrations, simulation of surgeries, and analysis and comparative evaluation of treatment among others.

The Medical Animation Application Market is poised to reach USD 301.3 Million by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 20.8% during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021.

The growth of the overall market can be contributed to the rising adoption of medical animation by pharmaceutical and life sciences companies; entry of start-ups; growing pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical and medical devices industries; increasing penetration of smartphones, tablets, and other mobile platforms; and rising geriatric population coupled with the growing number of surgeries globally.

In the coming years, the market is expected to witness the highest growth rate in the Asia-Pacific region. North America is expected to account for the largest share of the global medical animation market. However, the high cost of medical animation services is expected to restrain the growth of this market to a certain extent.
