Global Mammography Equipment Market 2015-2019
About Mammography Equipment
Mammography equipment for the early detection of breast cancer. Mammography can be used for either screening or diagnosis. Diagnostic mammogram is used to determine the evolution of abnormalities in either men or women. Doctors recommend that women undergo mammograms at regular intervals for the early detection of breast cancer.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global mammography equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 9.82% over the period 2014-2019.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Mammography is the gold standard for detecting breast cancer; however, in women with dense breast tissues, it can miss 37%-70% of breast cancers. This leads to a delay in diagnosis and, as a result, a worse prognosis. Three-dimensional tomosynthesis allows removal of overlapping tissue artifacts, thereby offering better screening sensitivity. Thus, the use of 3D tomosynthesis for patients with dense breasts can fuel the demand for 3D tomosynthesis equipment in the diagnostic industry.”
According to the report, globally, breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer-related deaths in women in less developed regions and the second most common cause of cancer-related deaths in more developed regions. According to Globocan, in 2012, more than 1.67-million new cases of breast cancer and 522,000 breast cancer-related deaths were reported worldwide. In 2013, the American Cancer Society reported 232,340 newly diagnosed cases of invasive breast cancer, which is expected to result in 39,620 deaths. This increase in the incidence of breast cancer will contribute to the growth of the market.Further, the report states that the cost of digital mammography equipment can hamper its adoption and installation in hospitals and diagnostic clinics worldwide, thereby negatively affecting the growth of the market.
