Mammography Systems Market: Current Trends and Future Aspect Analysis 2017 – 2025

Mammography system is a special imaging medical device that helps detect breast cancer or breast-related diseases in women experiencing symptoms such as nipple discharge, skin dimpling, pain, or lump. This is done by the use of lower dose of X-rays and ionizing radiations. Even before the women experience symptoms of cancer, the mammography system is useful in detection. Mammography system shows changes in breast up to two years before a physician or a patient can feel them. A mammography system is a box with a tube to produce X-rays. According to the Breast Cancer Organization, globally, breast cancer is one of the significant health issues among women, as more than 30% (over 3.1 million women in the U.S.) were anticipated to have breast cancer among the cancer diagnosed patients in 2017. Among the women in the U.S., other than skin cancer, breast cancer is the most prevalent disease as about 85% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of the disease.

Increased awareness about early detection of breast cancer and related disorders due to proactive initiatives by health care organizations, rise in geriatric population, increased prevalence of breast cancer, advancements in research and technological developments such as breast tomosynthesis, rise in government funding for breast cancer, and improved reimbursement insurance policies drive the global mammography systems market. However, generation of false negative or positive results and radiation exposure risks are anticipated to restrain the global mammography systems market.

The global mammography systems market can be segmented based on product type, technology, end-user, and region. In terms of product type, the market can be divided into breast tomosynthesis systems, analog mammography systems, and digital mammography systems, which can be sub-divided into digital radiography systems and computed radiography systems. The digital mammography systems segment held significant market share in 2016 owing to technological advancements. The breast tomosynthesis systems segment is anticipated to gain market share during the forecast period due to FDA approval for safe levels of radiation from mammograms, benefits such as clearer images, greater likelihood of detecting multiple breast tumors, fewer unnecessary additional tests or biopsies, greater accuracy, and early detection.

Based on technology, the global mammography systems market can be segmented into 3-D mammography, 2-D mammography, and combined 2-D and 3-D mammography. The 3D mammography segment accounted for large market share in 2016 owing to factors such as false alarm, and the Medical Imaging Modernization Act, 2015. The combined 2-D and 3-D mammography segment is anticipated to grow in the next few years due to increasing awareness and government initiatives for breast cancer.

In terms of end-user, the global mammography systems market can be classified into ambulatory surgical centers and inpatient settings. Geographically, the global mammography systems market can be segmented into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America held significant market share in 2016 due to rise in population of women above 40 years, number of mammography units in diagnostic centers and hospitals, reimbursement coverage by governments, and sophisticated health care facilities. The market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow during the forecast period driven by high prevalence of breast cancer due to change in lifestyle of women in emerging countries such as China and India.
