The Global Breast Imaging Market Size is expected to reach USD 11.8 billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 9.6% during the forecast period 2022 to 2032.


Market Overview

Breast imaging is a type of medical technology used to detect or diagnose breast cancer in female patients. Breast imaging technology utilizes radiological images of women's breasts to assist in the diagnosis of a variety of breast-related diseases. Mammography, breast ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and nuclear imaging are all breast imaging methods. This test's primary objective is to identify breast cancer and other conditions connected to the breast as early as possible, while they are still curable. According to the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF), there will probably be 2.1 million new instances of breast cancer worldwide by 2030. Additionally, according to a World Health Organization study on the condition that was published in March 2021, more than 2.3 million women worldwide received a diagnosis in 2020, and 685,000 of them passed away due to the disease's severity. The majority of individuals with breast cancer across the world receive their diagnosis mostly through breast imaging. Throughout the forecast period, this factor is anticipated to aid in market expansion.

Driving Factors

Market participants may anticipate a wide range of growth possibilities due to the burgeoning markets, increased public and private investments to address the rising need for breast cancer screening, and the improved reimbursement environment. Also, technology advancements, the rising number of screening programs, as well as the rising number of conferences and symposiums aimed at raising awareness of the advantages of early detection and diagnosis, all play a significant role in the market's growth. Moreover, due to the expanding markets, higher public and private expenditures to address the increasing demand for breast cancer screening may anticipate a wide variety of growth prospects. Furthermore, as the number of occurrences of breast cancer in women has significantly grown, so has the usage of various technologies for its detection. It is predicted that the number would rise in the upcoming years for several reasons. This rise is being driven by the introduction and growing usage of advanced mammography equipment equipped with cutting-edge technology. For example, Seno Medical Instruments' diagnostic breast cancer imaging technology gained premarket approval from the Center for Devices and Radiological Health in the United States in January 2021.


Restraining Factors

The ionizing radiation is used for diagnosis in a few breast imaging techniques. Ionizing radiation is used in digital mammography (DM), and digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), as well as potential new breast screening techniques. Consequently, increasing radiation exposure risk may restrain the breast imaging business. The growth of the market will be restrained by the high cost of imaging systems or technologies. The breast imaging industry will also face significant challenges from the unfavorable reimbursement environment in emerging and underdeveloped nations. Strict regulatory approval procedures and the appearance of unfavorable conditions as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic will, however, serve as restraints and further restrict the market's growth rate during the projected period. 


Market Segmentation

  • In 2022 the ionizing breast imaging segment is influencing the market share by around 63.2% during the forecast period.

Based on technology, the global breast imaging market is segmented into ionizing breast imaging {mammography, positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT), molecular breast imaging (MBI)}, non-ionizing breast imaging {ultrasound, MRI, image-guided breast biopsy}, and others. Among these segments, the ionizing breast imaging segment is dominating the market with the largest revenue share during the forecast period. New ionizing technology-based breast imaging technologies are expected to be released in the following years, which will cause the category to grow. The market is expected to grow due to funding for improvements in already existing ionization-based technologies. Additionally, the bulk of market players continues to be dedicated to increasing their technology investments to provide customers with better goods.


  • In 2022, the hospital segment is dominating the largest market growth over the forecast period.

On the basis of end users, the global breast imaging market is bifurcated different segments such as hospitals, breast care centers, & diagnostic imaging centers. Throughout these segments, the hospital's segment is dominating the market, due to the availability of innovative and well-equipped breast imaging equipment inside a hospital has a favorable impact on several variables, including length of hospital stay, the overall cost of healthcare, level of care, and accessibility to emergency treatment. Also, better infrastructure and diagnostic tools are now available because of investments. Additionally, it has been advantageous since it has given all hospital-based healthcare services adequate health coverage. These are the primary elements that will contribute to the expansion of the hospital market in the next years.
