Mammography systems are an advanced medical equipment used for early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. It is a low dose X-ray technique designed to image the underneath breast tissues. Mammography is mainly used for patients with symptoms of breast cancer who have no signs of breast cancer. The aim of mammography is early detection of breast cancer, through screening of microcalcifications and characteristic mass/lumps. It is a non-invasive technique that involves exposure of breasts to low dose of ionizing radiations to produce the inside image of the body. According to Breast Cancer research Foundation, breast cancer is the leading cause of mortality among women in developing countries. It is the most frequent cancer detected among women across about 140 countries.

The history of mammography systems industry can be dated back to 1913, when A. Salomon, a surgeon from Berlin conducted a study on 3,000 mastectomies for the study of mammography. Till 1960, only few developments were seen in this technique, until R. Leborgne, Ch. Gros and several other European and American radiologists contributed in this work. Ch. Gros was acknowledged for his notable work globally for the diagnosis of breast diseases. In 1960, mammography using X-ray tubes and without compression was performed by the radiologists. With the adoption of advanced technology, screen film mammography was introduced with faster imaging and low radiation dose. Between 1980-1990, substantial improvements in screen film technology was witnessed and dedicated mammography units were established. As breast cancer was categorized as public health threat, Mammography Quality Standards Act of 1992 was imposed to maintain the screening quality. Currently, leading players such as Fujifilm, Hologic, Siemens Healthineers and GE Healthcare are developing mammography systems to enhance cancer detection rate with reduced exposure to radiation. With the launch of first digital breast tomosynthesis system in the U.S. market by Hologic in the year 2011, a new breakthrough was established in mammography systems industry, that was followed by consequent launch by other market players including GE Healthcare, Siemens Healthineers and Fujifilm. Thus, with growing patient pool of breast cancer coupled with continuous technological advancements, the global mammography equipment industry will spur over the foreseeable future.

Early cancer screening programmes will offer lucrative growth opportunity for the market outlook for mammography systems

The market size for mammography systems will witness numerous growth opportunity due to growing understanding about screening modalities for diagnosis of breast disorders. Government has played a vital role in spreading awareness regarding early detection of the breast cancer and availability of advanced mammography equipments in the market. For instance, Breast Health Global initiative was formed to develop financially favourable and culturally suitable guidelines for underdeveloped countries to improve breast health results. However, rising incidence of breast cancer and high rate of mortality among women worldwide will augment the demand of mammography systems driving the market growth. However, high cost associated with advanced mammography systems and false-positive and negative outcomes may hamper the market growth to certain extent.

Based on product type, the market statistics for mammography systems is categorized into analog systems, full field digital mammography systems and breast tomosynthesis systems. Breast tomosynthesis segment was valued at over USD 500 million in 2018 and will foresee robust growth. Breast tomosynthesis is state-of-the-art technology, that produces superlative quality of images, thereby lowering the concealing effect of overlapping tissues. This feature escalates the detection of malignant breast cancer, that further decreases mortality rates caused due to end-stage detection of invasive breast cancer. Thus, due to greater precision and reduced recall rates, breast tomosynthesis will mark significant impact on the overall industry growth in the future years.

2D mammography systems will dominate technology segment of mammography systems market growth

Based on technology, the industry size for mammography systems is segmented into screen film, 2D mammography and 3D mammography based on technology. 2D systems mammography technology segment is estimated to hold maximum market share with revenue size of USD 1.4 billion in 2018. High market share is attributed to favourable characteristics such as effective screening of cancer in dense breasted women and wide adoption in breast tomography and synthesized mammography. 2D synthetic mammography provides more accurate results and reconstruction of 3D images of DBT into 2D images through 2D FFDM system. Moreover, digital breast tomosynthesis also uses 2D mammography technology for generating high-quality results, thereby driving the market demand for 2D technology in mammography equipment.

Rising pervasiveness of breast cancer contributes to higher number of hospital visits

Based on end-use, mammography systems market is bifurcated into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers and others. Hospitals segment accounted for more than 64% market share in 2018. Availability of advanced screening systems, highly skilled doctors and capacity for investment in high-cost imaging modalities will further augment the current market share. Furthermore, presence of mammogram screening programs and mobile mammography screening will further aid the segmental size over the forthcoming years.
