According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Prevalence of breast cancer. Breast cancer is a most common type of cancer among the women population and is one of the leading causes behind the high mortality rate among them. There is a significant rise in the number of incidence rate from past 25 years, particularly among postmenopausal women. For instance, in 2013, the CDC estimated that 100,000 women encountered breast cancer each year during 1999-2013. The incidence of breast cancer varied with the race and ethnicity.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High cost of mammography equipment. Healthcare facilities generate more revenue through the medical imaging procedures such as digital mammography equipment. However, the high cost of digital mammography equipment poses a challenge to the market, as this equipment falls under the category of capital equipment that is associated with budget allocation and high maintenance cost, which all together contribute toward its high pricing among the imaging equipment.
