Global Medical Animation Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global medical animation market size was valued at USD 284.69 million in 2024. It is further expected to be growing at a CAGR of 19.67% and value USD 698.72 million by 2029.

Medical animation is a powerful instructional tool that provides education on general treatments for a physical or surgical intervention available in 3D imaging. It is intended for a large set of the audience; the animation is also a common use for patients and medical professionals. Primary animations can only be used for models based on key process features. Animations have become significantly intricate owing to advanced microprocessor design and rapidly evolved computer memory.


The major factors contributing to the growth of the global medical animation market are the growing adoption of medical animation by pharmaceuticals and life sciences.

The emergence of start-up companies, growing pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical industries, and medical technologies are also driving the growth of the medical animation market. The evolution and penetration of smartphones, tablets, and other mobile platforms, the increasing geriatric population combined with the growing number of surgeries worldwide are the other factors that are fuelling the growth of the medical animation market.

Medical literacy is still relatively low in non-traditional and under-served markets, leading to increased demand for medical animation, which is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for the medical animation market during the forecast period.


The high cost of medical animation services is likely to slow down the growth of this market to some extent. The lack of certified professionals in the medical animation industry further exacerbates this problem. These factors are limiting the growth of the medical animation market.

COVID-19 impact on the global medical animation market

Pharmaceutical firms and healthcare providers widely use medical animation methods to explain medical/surgical treatments or other research purposes to patients with a high level of comprehension. Medical animation combines a high degree of experience and capabilities to produce high-quality, award-winning science work for pharmaceutical firms and organizations of all types. Due to emerging infections or introducing new diseases, such as COVID-19, the medical animation market is steadily growing (novel coronavirus). For the past two decades, new viruses have been rising at an alarming pace of one per year, according to the WHO, and this pattern is expected to continue. In terms of scientific response, laboratories worldwide share genome and protein architectures in open-access databases to aid in the combat against the latest epidemic (COVID-19 pandemic).

Companies have announced their new medical animation technologies. In September 2020, Geometric Medical, a leading high-end medical animation and scientific video development company, unveiled a rebranding and a new logo. Based on the most recent study, Fusion Medical Animation, for example, produced a 3D graphic and animation of COVID-19 in March 2020. The plot is depicted in this 3D medical animation, including what a pandemic is, worldwide infection trends, and disease prevention tips. Pharma companies' rising adoption of medical animation, the proliferation of tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices, and the number of surgeries worldwide contribute to the market's development.
