Breast tomosynthesis system segment in the mammography systems market will showcase growth of 9.4% till 2027 led by growing use of the technology in mammography and improved clinical outcome. The technology provides higher diagnostic accuracy and enhanced efficacy compared to other breast imaging technologies. Such factors are estimated to foster the segment growth in the coming years.

Continuous improvements in clinical outcomes and high-quality visualization of breast tissues are the factors propelling the breast tomosynthesis systems demand. The device has the capacity to detect cancer at an early stage while reducing the incidence of advanced cancer. The main advantage of device is that it can reduce the masking effects of surrounding fibro glandular tissue, thereby improving visualization of normal tissue and breast lesions.

Continuous technological advancement will drive the market demand

3D mammography technology accounted for USD 470 million in 2020 due to continuous technological advancements in the field of 3D mammography. Thus, increasing adoption of innovative breast imaging tools and rising acceptance of DBT devices are contributing to the market growth.

The introduction of artificial intelligence (AI) in 3D mammography has reduced mammography exam time without compromising image quality. Furthermore, speedy FDA approval for AI enabled 3D mammography systems is also spurring the market size.

Increasing healthcare expenditure coupled with availability of advanced imaging in hospitals will impel the mammography systems market share

The hospitals end-use segment exceeded USD 1.2 billion in 2020 on account of rising number of breast screening procedures in hospitals and the availability of advanced mammography systems.

The breast imaging facilities at hospitals provide comprehensive breast care services to women of all ages. The use of multidisciplinary high-technology and patient-centred approach to care are the factors impacting the segment expansion. Moreover, availability of specialized radiologists in hospitals and improved clinical outcome will drive the product demand in the coming years. 

Presence of key leaders will positively impact the North America market expansion

North America mammography systems market held 35% of the revenue share in 2020. Presence of a large patient pool and increasing geriatric population are the factors propelling the market revenue. According to the United States Census Bureau, by 2030, all the baby boomers will be older than 65 years in the U.S. Thus, hormonal fluctuations coupled with aging will influence pervasiveness of breast cancer among older women.

Presence of large number of local players and increasing number of product launches in the field of mammography are thriving the market value. Additionally, increasing incidence of breast cancer cases in the region are also driving the demand for mammography systems. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc., it is estimated that approximately 30% of all new cancer diagnosis is breast cancer. Thus, the presence of large patient pool and availability of advanced mammography solutions in the region will boost the demand.

Major market participants are innovating their products to cater to rising demand for effective cancer diagnosis tools

Some of the major companies operating in the market are Hologic, Analogic Corporation, Canon Medical System Corporation, Fujifilm Holdings Corporation, GE healthcare, and others. These leaders are continuously innovating their products and introducing new products in the market. Rising merger & acquisition and license & partnership strategies among these players are also augmenting the industry expansion.
