Breast Imaging Market Trends



  • The continuous increase in the number of breast cancers is expected to boost market growth


One of the key factors driving the growth of the breast imaging market is the continual increase in the frequency of breast cancers. According to the WHO, there will be 2.3 million women diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020, with 685 000 deaths worldwide. By the end of 2020, 7.8 million women will have been diagnosed with breast cancer in the previous five years, making it one of the world's most common types of cancer. Furthermore, according to Breast Cancer.org, around 43,300 women in the United States are predicted to die from breast cancer in 2022. Since 2007, death rates among women under 50 have been stable, while rates among women over 50 have continued to fall. From 2013 to 2018, the overall rate of breast cancer death fell by 1% every year. These reductions are thought to be the result of improved treatment and earlier diagnosis through screening systems. As of January 2021, there were over 3.8 million women in the United States with a history of breast cancer, including those who are actively being treated and those who have completed treatment.


The increase in the number of breast cancer cases worldwide has led to an increase in the use of a variety of breast screening processes (breast MRI, breast tomosynthesis, Molecular breast imaging, Positron emission mammography, Contrast-enhanced mammography, Electrical impedance imaging, Elastography, gynecomastia ultrasound, mastitis ultrasound, breast sonogram, gynecomastia radiology, galactocele According to the Food and Drug Administration, 40 million mammograms are conducted in the United States each year. Mammography is regarded as one of the most effective ways for screening women for breast cancer.


These factors are projected to fuel breast Imaging market revenue expansion in the next years and improve market CAGR across the globe in the recent years.


Breast Imaging Market Segment Insights


Breast Imaging Technology Insights


The global Breast Imaging market segmentation, based on Technology, includes Ionizing Technology and Non-Ionizing Technology. The 'Non-ionizing Breast Imaging' segment dominated the market in 2022, with the highest CAGR throughout the estimated period. The benefits of non-ionizing breast imaging technologies, such as the detection of tiny breast lesions in women with dense breast tissues and the depth of anatomical features for diagnosis, are driving overall market expansion in this region.

Breast Imaging End-User Insights


The global Breast Imaging market segmentation, based on End-User, includes Hospitals, Clinics, and Specialty Centers. In 2022, the market was considerably led by the Hospitals, followed by Clinics sector due to a consistent CAGR. Increased government funding for breast cancer therapies and healthcare infrastructure, a higher rate of breast cancer patients being admitted to hospitals, and the availability of highly skilled surgeons are all driving this market’s growth


Breast Imaging Regional Insights


By Region, the study provides the market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. North America dominated the Breast Imaging market in 2022, followed by Europe and the Asia-Pacific. North America Breast Imaging dominated the market owing to adoption of increasingly sophisticated imaging methods and systems for the breast as well as improvements in the detection of breast cancer. The population's high level of knowledge about the existence of cutting-edge diagnostic methods for breast imaging plays a part in the area's rapid market expansion.


The market for breast imaging is expanding as a result of the increasing number of breast cancer cases in the North American region. In the United States, it is anticipated that 287,850 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer and 51,400 women will be diagnosed with non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer in the year 2022, according to the American Society of Clinical Oncology's article on breast cancer statistics for that year. The high incidence of breast cancer in the United States will probably fuel the expansion of the region's market under study.


Guidelines on breast cancer screening for various age groups were announced by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in September 2020. These guidelines were supported by numerous cancer research organisations. Women between the ages of 40 and 49 should get a breast cancer screening once a year, according to the majority of cancer institutions, including the American Cancer Society, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and American College of Radiology. Such regional welfare-oriented recommendations increase the number of diagnostic screenings conducted there, which would favourably affect the expansion of the breast imaging market throughout the course of the forecast period.


Further, the major countries studied in the market report are: The U.S, Canada, Germany, France, UK, Italy, Spain, China, Japan, India, Australia, South Korea, and Brazil.

The European Breast Imaging market accounts for a sizable portion of the worldwide Breast Imaging market. Because of the rising incidence of breast cancer and the developed healthcare system, Europe has become a significant market for breast imaging. The area has significant growth potential, which will contribute to the market growth for breast imaging in the upcoming years. In the EU-27, it was predicted that more than 355,000 women would receive a breast cancer diagnosis by the year 2020. Italy, Portugal, and Germany are the three European nations with the highest median ages, which range from 14 to 20, and they are all in Europe. Further, the Germany Breast Imaging market held the largest market share, and the UK Breast Imaging market was the fastest growing market in the European region.


The Asia-Pacific Breast Imaging market is expanding as a result of a number of factors, including the steadily rising prevalence of breast cancers, the rising cost of healthcare, the rise of early detection programs, and the massive government spending on breast cancer research studies in several APAC countries. In Asia, 911,014 new instances of breast cancer were detected in 2018, and by 2030, there will likely be an additional 229,650 cases, according to GLOBOCAN. Moreover, China Breast Imaging market held the largest market share, and the India Breast Imaging market was the fastest growing market in the Asia-Pacific region.
