Market Overview

The Middle East & African market for mammography devices is growing at a CAGR of 7.0%. The major factors responsible for the growth of the mammography market include the growing prevalence of breast cancer, technological advancements in the field of breast imaging, and investment from various organizations in breast cancer screening campaigns.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports, breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among women, irrespective of race or ethnicity. For instance, according to the estimates of Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, there were 74,872 new cases of breast cancer reported in South Africa in 2019.

Growing government initiatives to improve clinical interpretation and increase access to mammary gland cancer screening systems is one of the crucial factors expected to drive demand over the forecast period. For instance, the Dubai Health Authority introduced breast, cervical, and colon cancer screening in 2014. In September 2015, the Ministry of Health launched an official cancer screening initiative, to raise awareness about cancer and about the importance of early detection through regular medical check-ups for colorectal, breast, and cervical cancers.

High-incidence and mortality rates for breast cancer represent a huge unmet need for breast cancer diagnostics. As the number of incidents and mortality cases is increasing, the demand for mammography is also expected to increase. This remains a major driver for the mammography market and is expected to boost the market during the forecast period.

Scope of the report

As per the scope of the report, mammography refers to a standard diagnostic and screening technique that is used to screen breast tissues to check the presence of a malignant tumor. The process involves the usage of low-energy X-rays for early detection of breast cancer. On the basis of the technology used, the Middle East & African market for mammography devices can be classified as film-screen or digital. The market is further segmented by product type, end user, and geography.

Key Market Trends

The Digital Mammography By Product Type Segment is Expected to Account for the Largest Market Share During the Forecast Period

Digital system mammography is highly preferred around hospitals, specialty clinics, and diagnostic centers. These are advanced forms of mammography in which digital receptors and computers are being used to examine the presence of tumor in breast tissues instead of X-ray films.

The growing demand for technologically advanced breast cancer screening and diagnostic equipment among the population is fueling the digital mammography segment.

The benefits associated with digital mammography such as superior depiction of low-contrast objects, wider dynamic change, and improved diagnostic quality of images, especially when examining denser breasts are driving the overall market.

With the advent of digital mammography, the countries are adopting these newer systems for screening purposes. These screening devices offer better quality, greater precision, and higher efficiency. The advantages associated with digital systems are an aid in the growth of the market.

Hence, with the benefits associated with digital mammography, growing target disorders's patient pool across the region, and increasing incidences of breast cancer, the demand for digital system mammography may increase in the forecast period.
