Market Overview

The brain tumor diagnostics market studied was anticipated to grow with a CAGR of 3.3%, during the forecast period. The significant factor attributing market growth is the rising incidence of brain cancer and increasing technological advancement in diagnostics devices. The increasing geriatric population across the globe also drives the brain tumor diagnostics market. There are more than 79,000 new cases of primary brain tumors diagnosed in 2019, with about one percent (around 23,880) of which were malignant, as per the American Cancer Society. The median age of diagnosis is 59 however most often occur in children and older people. Exposure to ionizing radiation, both medical (disease treatment) and atomic bomb exposure, has been linked with the occurrence of some forms of major brain tumors, including gliomas, meningiomas, and sarcomas, specifically when the exposure occurred during childhood. All these factors are expected to boost the growth of the brain tumor diagnostics market during the forecast period.
