Growing adoption of unhealthy diet including excessive fat and sugar content coupled with reduction in physical exercise has escalated number of people suffering from diabetes and cancer. According to the WHO, cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide, accounting over 9.6 million deaths in 2018. Such number has led to increase in adoption of cancer diagnostics.

The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the spectrum of cancer care, as screening program and services have been suspended or decreased in many countries. For instance, in U.S., the center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have classified screening and cancer care services as a low-priority services. Thus, the unprecedented effect of COVID-19 is expected to have some impact on cancer outcomes. However, market players focusing on R&D investments will lead to innovations in cancer treatment and diagnosis.

Favorable government initiatives to reduce cancer disease burden will spur the market growth

Numerous efforts undertaken by government and global health organizations such as the WHO and the CDC to create awareness regarding cancer, and to reduce disease burden will favor the cancer diagnostics market expansion. For instance, the WHO has collaborated with the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and other UN organizations to control occurrence of non-communicable diseases.

High cost associated diagnostic imaging system may slow down the market

The increasing use of diagnostic tests coupled with advancements enabling accurate and faster results has escalated price associated with diagnostics. Adoption of diagnostic imaging has grown rapidly over the years. However, all diagnostic imaging services are not covered by insurance. According to the ADIA data, patients undergoing MRI of breast, prostate, kidney, liver, pancreas, and pelvis spent additional USD 100 million every year for these services. Cost burden associated with diagnostic imaging is not affordable to majority of the population, thus impeding the market revenue.

Imaging technique plays crucial role in the diagnosis for almost every form of cancer

The imaging segment accounted for a cancer diagnostics market share of 65% in 2019. Detecting cancer merely with physical exams or biomarker tests is an onerous task and imaging test is must for conformation. The demand for imaging modalities is rapidly increasing with the increasing cancer prevalence. To meet the demand, new players are entering in cancer imaging market intensifying the existing competition. Moreover, technological advancements in imaging modalities have contributed to the segment growth.

Mammography segment will observe significant growth rate during the forecast timeframe owing to the increasing number of breast cancer across the globe. According to U.S. Breast Cancer Statistics, around 12.4% women in the U.S. have breast cancer and around 266,210 new cases of cancer were detected in 2018, accelerating the demand for mammography procedures.

Incidence of breast cancer is sharply increasing in developing as well as developed countries

The breast cancer segment size was over USD 19.5 billion in 2019 and is expected to witness substantial gains through 2026. The major causes leading to an upsurge in breast cancer prevalence and incidence rates are hormone replacement therapy, obesity, reduced childbearing and age-related risks. Changing lifestyles and increased alcohol consumption can be directly associated with breast cancer prevalence as well as incidence, as it results in an increase in estrogen levels in the body. Furthermore, it was also found that the incidence of breast cancer in women aged between 50 to 69 years is rising rapidly.

Increasing number of hospital admissions for cancer diagnosis and treatment will fuel the cancer diagnostics market demand

Hospital segment dominated around 41% market share in 2019. Hospitals have high adoption rates for technologically advanced imaging modalities and other devices that are utilized in the detection of cancer. As reported by the National Health Expenditures, out of the total healthcare expenditures, 32% accounts to hospital care and majority of the admissions to hospital are done for cancer treatments.

Availability of low-cost tests and key market players will boost the North America market growth
