Global mammography equipment market: $610 million industry by 2018

Press release   •   Aug 14, 2013 16:43 BST

The global Mammography Equipment market is projected to reach US$610 million by 2018, driven by rising breast cancer awareness, implementation of breast cancer screening programs worldwide and continued conversion from analog to digital mammography equipment.

The global mammography equipment market is witnessing a transition towards digital mammography from the conventional screen-film mammography technology. The trend is promoting demand for full-field digital mammography (FFDM), although digital radiography (DR) and computer radiography (CR) continue to be popular digital technologies in some markets. Continuing technological advances and favorable reimbursement programs in certain countries are expected drive demand for FFDM systems worldwide.

With the introduction of new 3D mammography compatible devices, several facilities are replacing their existing devices with new 3D upgradable FFDM devices that will allow them to eventually convert to 3D. CR remains popular in markets such as South America, where the market for DR is yet to make a mark due to higher prices of these devices. On the other hand, countries such as India are witnessing increasing prominence of DR.
