Opportunity: Growth potential in emerging countries

Developing economies offers high growth opportunities for key players operating in the breast imaging market. Countries such as India, China, Brazil, South Korea, Turkey, Russia, and South Africa has large population base and offers a sustainable market for diagnostic imaging devices. The demand for diagnostic imaging has significantly increased in emerging economies due to the rising prevalence and growing awareness of breast cancer. The Indian government is focusing on providing the insurance scheme under the Ayushman Bharat program. The growth in the emerging economies is accompanied by favorable government and private policies to enhance access to diagnostic imaging, including the provision of reimbursement.

Challenge: Errors in breast cancer screening

Lower sensitivity, low reliability, painful compressions, and low patient tolerance are some of the potential limitations of various breast imaging modalities.  some invasive breast tumors detected by traditional mammography stop growing at certain stages. These tumors are considered non-life-threatening, and their detection through mammography leads to unnecessary need for overtreatment. X-ray mammography is a superior technology to avoid all these limitations and to obtain accurate results. However, in some countries like US the further testings are required to confirm the results. Hence, the accuracy of mammography in women with dense breasts becomes lower, leading to diagnosis errors. The limitations of the above mentioned imaging modalities are expected to hamper the adoption of these technologies.
