Automated Breast Ultrasound System Market : Opportunities, Growth Analysis and Forecast Assessment 2021 to 2025 | FMI Report with Expert Review

With the rapid and wide spread of the coronavirus pandemic, the automated breast ultrasound system market is facing a moderate slump in the short term. Breast ultrasound procedures are largely considered to be elective procedures, which have been postponed during the pandemic to minimize the risk of the contagion. This trend will reduce demand in the near future. However, automation tech helps in remote screening solutions, which could potentially sustain operations during the crisis period.

“Factors such as increased cases of obesity, hormone replacement therapies, age risks, and drop in childbirth, have increased rates of breast cancer in recent years. Consequently, the demand for automated breast ultrasound systems has gone up significantly. These trends are likely to continue into the foreseeable future,” says the FMI analyst.

ABUS gaining Competitive Edge over HHUS

Breast cancer has prevailed as most commonly diagnosed cancer type, and has become the second leading cause of mortality among women, according to statistics unveiled by National Breast Cancer Foundation. With growing awareness about breast cancer, number of screening procedures has proliferated, thereby propelling demand for advanced diagnostic and follow-up care technologies such as automated breast ultrasound systems in diagnostic centers and hospitals. Facilitated screening of denser breast’s tissues, along with the provision of superior image quality, has offered automated breast ultrasound system (ABUS) a competitive edge over the handheld ultrasound system (HHUS).

Competition Landscape

The automated breast ultrasound system market comprises players including but not limited to SonoCine Inc., GE Electric Co., Hitachi Ltd., and Siemens AG. Market players are pushing for product launches with tech advancements. For instance, GE Healthcare has developed an FDA-approved, automated breast ultrasound systems aimed towards the diagnosis of cancer in dense breast tissue.
