The International Association of Research on Cancer estimates that the four most common types of cancer that account for approximately 40% of all cancer diagnoses include breast cancer (about 11.7%), lung cancer (approximately 11.4%), colorectal cancer (around 10%), and prostate cancer (nearly 7.3%) of all cancer diagnosis occurring globally.

Technological advancements have enabled the availability of advanced technologies for tissue scanning as well as the detection of small cancerous tumors. Companies specializing in biopsy needles are offering innovative technologies as there is minimum to no demand for traditional technologies. For instance, in June 2021, Saga Surgical, a Sweden company, launched its new needle for biopsy called the Forsvall Needle which can minimize the chance of contracting sepsis or infection following a biopsy. According to estimates, the utilization of this needle could save over USD 230 million annually, in case of detection of prostate cancer alone in emergency cases.

A lack of skilled healthcare professionals may impact the deployment and use of biopsy needles. Strong technical proficiency is necessary for a biopsy process in terms of using the equipment and interpreting the data. Due to under-trained health workers, the majority of customers are concerned about proper diagnosis, which may be an obstacle to the growth of the biopsy needle market. For instance, as per estimates, in EU28, the lack of skilled healthcare workforce is projected to reach around 4.1 million in 2030.
