The statistics and trends discussed here will support innovators in understanding the key broad measurements and judgement factors necessary to assess new opportunities, and how they fit with the overall existing PACs market context.
Such existing statistics and trends form a key input for justifying and assessing new PACS product and service opportunities, particularly in discussions between new innovators and potential investors. Innovators can use them to support investment arguments; investors can use such macro-level data to support judgments on new idea potential. PACS policymakers need to understand such market measurements to maximise potential that public investment is congruent to such macro trends.
More specific analysis performed by innovators on specific ideas beyond the contents of IPACSO will sit in the context of the broader measurements presented here.
