Key Market Trends

Oncology Segment is Expected to Show Better Growth During the Forecasted Years

The oncology segment deals with the diagnosis and treatment of tumors and cancers. According to Globocan, in 2018, among both the sexes, breast and cervix uteri cancers are the most common cancers found in Africa, with breast cancer alone contributing to around 16% of the total new cases. Therefore there is a growing demand for better diagnostic facilities like MRI in the African countries due to the rising burden of cancer and the growing aging population.

In addition, the rising awareness among people about early diagnosis of diseases for prevention and faster cure is expected to show better growth in the forecast period. Furthermore, high-quality, sustainable projects, such as in Eldoret (AMPATH Oncology) the work of Hospice Africa Uganda, the collaborations between Crumlin Children’s Hospital (Dublin, Ireland) and the Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (Dar-es-Salaam) Tanzania, etc.contribute in a positive manner towards cancer control that is boosting the overall market growth.
