Rising incidence of breast cancer is expected to significantly contribute to automated breast ultrasound system market growth. As per World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF), breast cancer prevalence was estimated to be 25% more higher than other forms of cancers in women, with more than 1.6 million new cancer cases diagnosed in 2012.


Changes in environment and lifestyle related factors increases predisposition to breast cancer. Environmental chemicals found in cosmetics, plastics, polychlorinated biphenyls and pesticides contain estrogen properties, increasing risk levels. Moreover, increasing unhealthy habits such as smoking and drinking alcohol has led to considerable rise in cancer cases, driving the automated breast ultrasound system market growth.

Increasing awareness regarding breast cancer owing to government initiatives have resulted in a large number of women undergoing screening. Various charity organizations are working towards creating awareness regarding the disease and fund for research. For instance, a New York based charity organization Pink Ribbon Inc. supports the affected patients and their families globally.

 Automated breast ultrasound system market growth will be hampered by lack of reimbursement in many regions, inadequate human resource with technical expertise to handle the equipment and interpret the results along with huge initial capital investment.

Automated Breast Ultrasound System Market, By Product

Automated breast ultrasound system (ABUS) captured the largest revenue share of over 51% in 2016, with estimated market size projected to cross USD 850 million by 2024. The largest share of ABUS should be attributed to the rising product penetration owing to its benefits such as quick turnaround time, affordability of devices, accurate diagnostic results, and operations without continuous operator monitoring.

 Automated breast volume scanner (ABVS) is identified to be fastest growing segment, and projected to exceed USD 700 million by 2024. Combination of ABVS with mammography allows both detection and evaluation of the breast cancers, accelerating the automated breast ultrasound system market growth over future years.

Automated Breast Ultrasound System Market, By End user

Hospitals held more than 61% automated breast ultrasound system market share in 2016, witnessing a robust 15.8% CAGR from 2017 to 2024. Increased usage of ABUS systems in hospitals, improved funding and availability of skilled professionals will propel business segment growth.

R&D in field of breast cancer screening has led to introduction of advanced imaging techniques. This has enabled the detection of small cancer tumors as well as dense breast tissue scanning, boosting the overall automated breast ultrasound system market size. For instance, GE Healthcare’s Invenia ABUS improves cancer diagnosis by 55% in comparison to mammography. Recent technological advancements in ABUS market is the newly FDA approved automated breast volume scanner (ABVS), that detects small cancer tumors in less time, as well as increases sensitivity and reproducibility of 3D images.
