Breast Cancer Diagnostic Market - Global industry insights, Outlook and Opportunity Analysis, 2017-2025

Breast cancer is characterized by a malignant tumor formed in the breast cells, which can spread to other parts of the body. Breast cancer is majorly observed in females. Breast cancer is diagnosed by doctors with the help of several tests to locate the site of initiation and the spread of the tumor to several parts of the body. Symptoms of breast cancer includes lump in a breast, change in the shape of breast, skin dimpling, and fluid leakage from the nipple, patches on the skin, etc. Breast cancer can be developed in normal individuals due to several risk factors that involves low physical exertion, alcohol consumption, obesity, menopause, family history and delivering a child at an older age. Breast cancer can be diagnosed at early stages by certain screening tests like yearly mammograms, CT scans, and MRI. Once the symptoms are visually detectable, an individual is advised to undergo diagnostic test to confirm the suspects of the breast cancer. These diagnostic tests are majorly carried out by biopsy in which a small amount of internal tissue is removed from the patient’s body and observed under the microscope to diagnose the breast cancer. This diagnostic method can be carried out with the help of several diagnostic options like that of biopsy, clinical lab tests, ultrasound techniques that are available in the Breast cancer diagnostic market.

Increase in incidence of breast cancer worldwide is the prime reason for global breast cancer diagnostic market growth over the forecast period

Regional segmentation of the breast cancer diagnostic market by Coherent Market Insights comprises North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East, and Africa. The major reason driving the breast cancer diagnostic market is the increasing incidence rate of breast cancer all over the globe. The WHO suggests that 89.7 per 100,000 people in Western Europe are affected by breast cancer per year. Apart from this, certain factors like increasing awareness among people regarding regular check- ups for early detection of breast cancer, technological advancement in medical imaging technologies, funding provided by government in research and development of breast cancer treatment and diagnostic techniques are responsible to fuel the global market of breast cancer diagnostics. Moreover, the rise in geriatric population offers high growth to the players of global market. Strikingly, the breast cancer survival rates worldwide are relatively high, making it an important factor that is responsible to drive the breast cancer diagnostic industry. WHO states that survival rates are around 80% in North America, Sweden and Japan. However, as the installation cost of breast cancer diagnostic devices and imaging facilities and side effects of radiation, may result in hindering the growth of the breast cancer diagnostic market.

In case of regional segmentation, North America contributes highest in the global breast cancer diagnostic market followed by Europe. The developing countries of the Asia Pacific are potential players in boosting the global market due to factors like growing population of patients, government investments in healthcare expenditure and revenues and awareness among people regarding benefits of early detection of breast cancer.
