Breast Imaging Market by Technology (Ionizing (Mammography (Digital Mammography, 3D Mammogram, Analog), MBI, PET-CT, PEM), Non-ionizing (Breast Ultrasound, Breast MRI, Automated Whole-Breast Ultrasound, Breast Thermography)) - Global Forecast to 2023
“The breast imaging market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.0% during the forecast period”
The global breast imaging market is projected to reach USD 4.6 billion by 2023 from USD 3.1 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 8.0%. Growth in this market is largely driven by factors such as the rising prevalence of breast cancer, growth in the geriatric population (as age contributes to the risk of breast cancer) and changing lifestyles, which have increased the overall possibility of cancer occurrence. However, errors in screening and misdiagnosis, the side-effects of radiation exposure, and the growing adoption of refurbished imaging systems are the major factors that are expected to restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period.
“The ionizing breast imaging segment is expected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period”
Based on technology, the breast imaging market is segmented into ionizing (mammography, PET-CT, MBI, and PEM), non-ionizing (breast ultrasound, breast MRI, AWBU, and breast thermography), and other breast imaging technologies (CBCT, electrical impedance tomography, and optical imaging). The ionizing breast imaging segment accounted for the largest share of this market in 2018, driven by the technological advancements in ionizing breast imaging technologies and rising awareness about the early screening and diagnosis of breast cancer.
“The molecular breast imaging (MBI) segment to witness second-highest growth in the ionizing breast imaging market during the forecast period”
Based on type, the ionizing breast imaging technology market is segmented into mammography, PET-CT, MBI, and PEM. The MBI segment is expected to witness the second-highest growth rate in the market during the forecast period. The MBI technique is simple, fast, and highly sensitive and can be used for patients who are claustrophobic or allergic to gadolinium, which are the key factors driving its adoption in the breast imaging market.
“Europe to account for the second-largest share of the global market in 2018”
The breast imaging market is segmented into four major regions, namely, North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. Europe accounted for the second-largest share of the global breast imaging market in 2018. The increasing number of regulatory approvals for advanced breast imaging modalities, growing number of distribution collaborations and partnerships among market players, and the implementation of various awareness programs by several European organizations are the major factors propelling the demand for breast imaging in Europe.
