Key Market Trends

Mammogram under the Imaging Test Segment is Expected to Hold the Largest Market Share

Mammograms are used in most cases of breast cancer screening. The United States Preventive Services Task ForceExternal (USPSTF) recommends that women aged between 50 and 74 years old and are at average risk for breast cancer should get a mammogram every two years. Furthermore, mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, and having regular mammograms can lower the risk of dying from breast cancer. Currently, a mammogram is the best way to find breast cancer in women. However, mammography is less likely to find breast tumors in women with dense breast tissue, as both tumors and dense breast tissues appear white on a mammogram, making it harder to find a tumor in such cases. Thus, there are other imaging techniques that are also likely to gain more popularity over the forecast period. Owing to the rising cases of breast cancer in the region, the market is expected to witness high growth over the forecast period.
