Global Breast Imaging Market worth $5.13 Billion, Growing at a CAGR of 8.2% by 2024- Exclusive Report by Meticulous Research®

According to a new market research report “Breast Imaging Market by Technology [Ionizing (FFDM, Analog, 3D Mammogram, PEM, CT, CBCT, EIT), Non-Ionizing (Breast Ultrasound, Breast MRI, AWBU, Breast Thermography)], End User (Hospital, Diagnostic Imaging Center) – Global Forecast to 2024”, published by Meticulous Research®, the global breast imaging market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2019 to reach $5.13 billion by 2024.

Previously, breast imaging was done using X-ray film, analog or other traditional mammograms; however, these products used to come with drawbacks such as inability to examine dense breast tissue, longer procedure for viewing mammogram, ability to capture only two images of each breast, and less allowance to undergo mammographic examination for woman over age 40. Thus, to overcome these drawbacks, digital mammography came into existence. These digital systems are able to capture tiny calcium deposits which may lead to cancer or any abnormality, with low dosage. Moreover, digital files can be easily enhanced and shared to clinicians at any locations. Most of the women aged 40 year & above prefer to undergo routine mammographic examinations as it is covered by health insurance in most of the countries. Though, there is emergence of digital mammography, not all systems are able to detect abnormalities in dense breast tissue. Therefore, researchers developed new technology called tomosynthesis, which can accurately determine breast cancer from dense breast tissue. Moreover, this technology reduces the patient recall rate up to 30%. Similarly, this technology has comparatively low cost because of less false positive and false negative errors. Such advancements in the breast imaging technology and growing awareness about the timely diagnosis of the disease for better care in women are driving the growth of breast imaging market. In addition, rising prevalence and incidence of breast cancer, increasing investment and funding in R&D for breast cancer treatments, and rising women aging population further drives the growth of the overall breast imaging market.

The breast imaging market is primarily segmented on the basis of technology, end user, and geography. On the basis of technology, the overall breast imaging market is mainly categorized into two segments- Ionizing technology and Non-ionizing technology. The Ionizing technology market is further segmented into Full-Field Digital Mammography (FFDM), analog mammography, 3D Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT), Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (PET/CT), Molecular Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging (MBI/BSGI), Positron Emission Mammography (PEM), Computed Tomography (CT), Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), and Electric Impedance Tomography (EIT); whereas,  non-ionizing technology segment is further segmented into breast ultrasound, breast MRI, Automated Whole-Breast Ultrasound (AWBS), breast thermography, and optical imaging.

On the basis of technology, ionizing technology is estimated to command the largest share of the overall breast imaging market in 2019, primarily due to their availability in the market from last many decades and continuous ongoing technological advancements to offer better results. On the other hand, non-ionizing technology is expected to grow at the highest CAGR, owing to their advantages such as enhanced safety, accurate detection of breast tumor location, and higher sensitivity for smaller breast lesion in dense breast women.

On the basis of end user, the overall breast imaging market is mainly categorised into hospitals, diagnostic imaging centers, and ambulatory surgical centres. Hospitals segment is estimated to command the largest share of the global breast imaging market in 2019. The factors such as higher purchasing power of hospitals, well-equipped operating & diagnostic rooms, presence of highly skilled healthcare professionals, better health coverage for hospital based healthcare services from various private and group insurance plans and therefore higher patient visits to hospital settings supported the their largest share of the overall market.
