Rising prevalence of breast cancer pertaining to factors such as prolonged exposure to endogenous oestrogens, early menarche, late age at first childbirth and late menopause will be a high impact rendering factor for the industry growth. Increasing technological advances in cancer biology and launch of several diagnostic and screening programs worldwide should drive the business size. Growing adoption of therapeutics owing to factors such as blocking estrogenic from binding to tumour cells, risk of distant reappearance, lowering jeopardy of reappearance in the breast that had tumour and reducing risk of developing disease in another breast will propel the industry growth.


Growing awareness regarding breast cancer, rising shift towards adoption of western lifestyle, short breast-feeding timeframe and rising prevalence of obesity in women after menopause will drive the industry size. Increasing rate of alcohol consumption in women, rising use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and oral birth control pills resulting in increased levels of oestrogen will boost the business size over the forecast period. Growing exposure to certain carcinogens and endocrine disruptors, for example in the workplace, working night shifts results in increased risk are surging up the global market.
