Global X-ray Mammography Imaging Systems Market, Forecast to 2022
Over the last 20 years, hospitals and imaging centers in developed economies have adopted X-ray mammography equipment to screen and diagnose breast cancer. This has led to significant reduction in mortality and prompted emerging countries to invest in population-based, organized screening. Significant investments in mammography technology have paved the way for radiation safety, patient comfort, and 3D imaging that provides precise tumor detection.
Market measurements—revenue and year-over-year growth rate by region and segment—are analyzed for 2015 to 2016 and forecast until 2022. Pricing range and growth trend by sub-segment is discussed for the base year. An extensive list of manufacturers in the X-ray mammography space to watch out for in 2017 is also provided.
X-ray mammography is the gold standard for breast cancer detection. Due to the rising incidence of breast cancer, organized population-based screening programs are carried out in Western countries at a 1-to-3-year screening interval, depending on country policies. Starting in early 1990, the countries have witnessed a significant decrease in mortality. Mammography was not considered patient friendly due to discomforts caused, possible false positives, overlooked tumors and the potential radiation exposure. However, with innovations in technology focusing on microcalcification, sensitivity, specificity, use in dense breast tissue patients, most western countries have switched to full-field digital mammography. However, reimbursements deter the adoption of digital breast tomosynthesis for screening programs
With the advent of private hospitals and favorable reimbursement health insurance, there is more demand for patient safety and quality of technologies, reduced hospitalization and reduction in overall healthcare costs in Asia-Pacific.
Globally, countries are placing emphasis on early detection of breast cancer safety and investing in screening programs. Business models focusing on managed services, pay per use , sharing services, integrated workflow and automation are changing the landscape of the mammography procurement. These factors determine the growth of the mammography market.
Strategies, growth analyses, competitive landscape, and future focus are discussed for vendors, such as GE Healthcare, Siemens Healthineers, Hologic, IMS, Planmed, Carestream, Agfa, Fujifilm, Allengers, Cura Healthcare, and Konica Minolta, among others. The base year for the study is 2017; the historic years are 2015 and 2016; the forecast period is from 2018 to 2022.
This study aims to analyze and forecast the X-ray Mammography Imaging Systems market in North America (US and Canada), Europe, and Asia-Pacific for 2017.
