Automated Breast Ultrasound Systems Market 2021: Future Challenges, Global Industry Analysis, Current Demand & Forecast By 2031

The global automated breast ultrasound systems market is projected to expand at approximately 10% CAGR during the forecast period of 2021-2031. Increasing necessity of early detection of breast cancer and accurate diagnostic reports is promoting leading players to develop modern automated diagnosis systems.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 2.3 million women were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020, and 685,000 succumbed to the disease globally. Breast cancer is the most prevalent type of cancer in the world, occurring in every country, affecting women of any age after puberty, with slowly increasing rates in adulthood. 

Initiatives taken by various governmental and non-governmental bodies such as National Breast Cancer Awareness month are anticipated to positively impact the demand for automated breast ultrasound systems for the early screening of tumors in dense breast tissue.

Surging cases of breast cancer are also being attributed to increasingly sedentary lifestyle and obesity. The implementation of high-frequency sound waves to map breast for creating 3D monochromatic images of tissue and the breast structure is propelling the demand in the market, finds ESOMAR-certified consulting firm FMI in this study.

3D automated breast ultrasound systems have witnessed major progress in the market, especially when they are combined with full-field digital screening mammography (FFDSM). These systems deliver higher accuracy in invasive breast cancer diagnosis and have higher recall features and are gaining popularity in the automated breast ultrasound systems market.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, a slight drop in demand was observed in 2020. The stringent lockdown restrictions compelled doctors to limit the breast ultrasound procedures for critical patients only.

Skilled professionals were required to prioritize COVID-19 patients to break the transmission chain of the virus, thus restricting the market demand. Nonetheless, FMI anticipates a strong recovery in the automated breast ultrasound market as cases of breast cancer are surging globally.

According to FMI’s analysis, North America is currently leading in the automated breast ultrasound systems market. Growth in this region can be attributed to rising cases of breast cancer, coupled with robust healthcare infrastructure and increasing research and development in terms of advancements in the digital cancer screening systems.        

“The implementation of automated breast ultrasound systems with other technologically advanced cancer screening operations will yield highly accurate results, thereby promoting the rapid adoption of ABUS in diagnostic laboratories and augmenting the market growth,” remarks an FMI analyst.
