The global breast imaging market size was valued at USD 5.2 billion in 2021 and it is expected to reach around USD 9.5 billion by 2030 and poised to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) 6.93% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030.
The medical technology which is used in order to detect and identify breast cancer is known as breast imaging. It helps in detecting many different types of disorders related to the breasts with the help of the radiological pictures through the use of the medical technology. There are many different types of technologies used for breast imaging like breast ultrasonography, mammography, magnetic resonance imaging, and nuclear imaging. All of these technologies are used in order to understand the presence of breast cancer and other disorders related to the breast and this technology helps in detecting the possibilities of the disorders or cancer in the earlier stages and this is extremely beneficial as it detects cancer at a stage where it can be treated. Breast cancer happens to be one of the biggest cause of mortality in women the demand for and the development of the technologies which are used in breast imaging have increased in the recent years as it helps in early detection and treatment.
With the help of the non-ionizing and ionizing radiation which is used in detecting the tumors of the breast imaging technique has grown well in the recent years. As the doctors make use of this technology in order to diagnose the presence of breast cancer in the earlier stages as and when the symptoms appear the demand for this technology is expected to grow in the coming years.
As the cases of breast cancer have increased in the recent years the demand for this technology is expected to grow well in the coming year. Early detection is one of the major factors that will help in the growth of the market during the forecast period. With the help of this technology other disorders which are related to the breast of a women can also be detected due to which the market will continue to grow well in the coming year.
Constant research and development in this field has launched different types of equipments of the advanced type that help in breast imaging. The demand for softwares has also grown due to the increased amount of funds received in this field. Geriatric women population is one of the factors that have led to an increase in the cases of breast cancer. Recently the use of systems that make use of hybrid imaging have also developed and this is expected to provide good amount of growth opportunities in the coming years for all the companies operational in the market.
