Mammography Market Is Anticipated To Show Promising Growth Prospects In The Forecasted Period 2022-2032 | FMI

The global mammography market demand is estimated to be worth around US$ 1.7 Billion in 2022. However, with rising prevalence of breast cancer at an alarming rate the overall demand for mammography systems is anticipated to grow at around 6.5% to 9% CAGR between 2022 and 2032, totaling over US$ 3.4 Billion by 2032.

Mammography is a modern non-invasive medical imaging and diagnostic technique that uses low-dose X-rays to monitor breast tissues for the presence of tumor. It has become one of the most commonly used techniques for checking abnormalities in the absence of any symptoms. It has significantly aided in reducing breast cancer mortality rates worldwide.

Increasing prevalence of breast cancer across the world along with growing awareness about the benefits of screening and early diagnosis of breast cancer is providing a major impetus to the growth of mammography market. It is one of the most common forms of cancer among females, worldwide.

Various studies have found that the risk of breast cancer increases with aging and is common in females aged 40 years and above. It is for this reason that medical institutes and organizations like the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) have recommended mammography screening for women every year, beginning at age 40. This will continue to act as a catalyst for market growth in future.

Various mammography solutions or types such as breast tomosynthesis, film screen systems, and X-ray are being used for the early diagnosis of breast cancer. However, film screen systems or screen film mammography remains the gold standard for the detection of breast cancer.
