Market Definition

The global Mammography Market size was valued at USD 2.26 billion in 2022 and is predicted to reach USD 4.48 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 8.9% from 2023-2030. Mammography is a method to detect and examine changes in breast tissues. It is a non-invasive medical imaging and diagnostic procedure that uses x-rays to monitor the presence of tumors in breast tissue.

In this method, the breast is pushed between two hard surfaces to disperse the tissues of the breast. X-rays are then displayed on the computer screen to capture a black-and-white image that is inspected for signs of cancer. Mammography is widely used to examine the breast for the early detection of cancer and other breast diseases such as benign, fibrocystic and hyperplasia. This method is one of the most commonly used techniques for checking asymptomatic anomalies and allows women to be aware of the health of their breasts. 

Market Dynamics and Trends

The rising incidence of breast cancer across the globe is a major factor that is driving the mammography market. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 2.3 million women diagnosed with breast cancer and 685 000 deaths in 2020 globally. Also, the growing government initiatives and investments to develop women's healthcare and early detection of breast cancer is further propelling the growth of the market. For instance, in May 2021, Australian government announced an investment of almost USD 354 million in their federal budget for women’s health to increase screening of breast cancers and cervical cancers. 

Moreover, increasing efforts by various NGOs and international organizations to raise awareness about early detection of macrocalcification of breast tissue that causes breast cancer leads to the market expansion of mammography market. various organizations such as the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and Breast Cancer Organization that are promoting early detection of breast calcification globally have resulted into greater utilization of mammography that is expected to drive the growth of market during the forecast period. For instance, the National Breast Cancer Foundation provides early detection screenings, including mammograms, breast health education, and a supportive community. They offer help and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education, and support services.

However, societal stigma due to lack of education and low socio-economic status that contributes to avoid breast cancer screening and health concerns related to radiation exposure risks are the factors restraining the growth of market during the forecast period. On the contrary, growing adoption and utilization of advanced digital technology in mammography devices such as 3D digital mammography that generates high-quality images from various angles is significantly fueling the market growth. This results in accurate and early detection of breast cancer cells which is expected to create ample growth opportunities for the market in the coming years.

Geographical Analysis

North America holds the dominant share of mammography market and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. This is attributed to increasing cases of breast cancer cases, along with rising awareness about breast cancer among individuals in this region. According to World Health Organization (WHO), Mexico reported 29,929 new breast cancer cases, while Canada reported 274,364 new cases of breast cancer in 2020.  

Also, the presence of major key players such as Hologic Inc., GE Healthcare, Gamma Medica and Analogic Corporation that are adopting various strategic such as partnerships and expansions in turn boost the market growth in the region. For instance, in April 2022, GE Healthcare partnered with DetectedX to expand access to promote global diagnostic accuracy excellence. This online learning platform is designed to improve the ability of radiologists to correctly detect breast lesions in 2D and 3D mammography while improving cancer detection by more than 34%.

On the other hand, Asia-Pacific is expected to show a steady rise in the mammography market due to the expanding healthcare infrastructure and improved access to medical facilities in countries such as India, China, and Southeast Asian nations. For instance, China's healthcare spending significantly grown over the last two decades across all sources, with total expenditure reaching approximately USD 1.2 trillion in 2021, more than doubling from 2015 and healthcare expenditure accounted for 6.5% of the annual GDP in 2021.

Moreover, rising government initiatives aimed at improving breast cancer detection and care in various countries such as China, India and Japan are expected to drive the mammography market growth in this region. For instance, in October 2021, in India, Goa government announced an initiative for free breast cancer screening for 1 lakh women over a period of two years. It was funded by the Indian Institute of Banking & Finance and SBI Foundation. Under this initiative, free breast cancer screening by using ‘iBreast’ devices and free treatment were provided for all positive cases.
