Vacuum-assisted breast biopsy is the dominating segment in the global breast biopsy devices market

The American Cancer Society, Inc, advises men and women to attend self-awareness exams conducted through the year, which helps individual to detect any change in their breast which would be further diagnosed by the physician.

According to Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA) and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), in the U.S., around 50,000 workers die each year as a result of past exposure to hazardous agents. However, high procedure cost and side effects such as bleeding and infections post-procedure are some of the factors restraining market growth for breast biopsy devices.

Increasing breast cancer cases in North America a highly lucrative market

Regional segmentation by Coherent Market Insights comprises North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East, and Africa. North America accounts for the largest market share, mainly due to presence of major players and early adoption of advanced medical technologies in countries such as the U.S. and Canada. In 2015, according to Susang Komen—a non-profit organization that focuses on breast cancer awareness—there were over 2.3 million breast cancer cases diagnosed in the U.S. According to The European Breast Cancer Coalition, in EU-28 361,600 cases of breast cancer were reported in 2012, and 1 in 8 women in the EU-28 are projected to develop breast cancer before the age of 85. Europe is the second-largest market, owing to large target population—especially comprising elderly people who are more susceptible to diseases due to weakening immune system—along with high acceptance of VABB devices for diagnosis of breast cancer. Growing disposable income and increasing awareness level among the populace in Asia Pacific, along with a large population base is expected to position Asia Pacific as a high growth market in the near future. According to International Association of Cancer Registries, in 2012, over 600,000 new breast cancer cases were reported in Asia, accounting for 39% of all breast cancers diagnosed worldwide.
