NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Analysis of the US Breast Imaging Systems Market : A Guide to One of Medical Imaging's Key Multi-modality Hubs
This research service presents an analysis of the breast imaging systems market in the United States. It provides an in-depth analysis of the current trends, market size, revenue forecast, drivers and restraints, market penetration, and market attractiveness. Segments that are covered include X-ray mammography (with analog, digital radiography, computed radiography, and digital breast tomosynthesis), ultrasound (including automated breast ultrasound), breast MRI, and molecular breast imaging. Market participants were interviewed to obtain their perceptions of breast imaging systems and trends.
- In the United States, breast imaging system is frequently used during cancer screening, diagnosis, and pre-surgical planning. The most common breast imaging procedures are X-ray mammography, breast ultrasound, breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and molecular breast imaging (MBI).
- Technologies such as digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) and automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) are expected to drive the growth through the forecast period. Technologies such as automated breast tomography, elastography, thermography and optical imaging systems are under clinical evaluation for breast imaging screening and diagnosis.
- Total revenue from shipments of X-ray mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, and MBI systems to US customers in 2014 was $ million. Frost & Sullivan expects revenue in the US breast imaging systems market to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of % from 2014 to 2019, reaching $ million in 2019.
- In 2014, at least competitors actively participated in the US breast imaging systems market. Competitors contributing the highest proportions of revenue in the total market were GE Healthcare, Hologic, Philips Healthcare, and Siemens Healthcare. Together, these competitors generated % of total market revenue.
- Revenue from shipments of X-ray mammography systems to US customers was $ million in 2014, accounting for % of total market revenue. Frost & Sullivan expects revenue in this segment to grow at a CAGR of % from 2014 to 2019. The commercialization of DBT in 2011 contributed significantly to the growth of X-ray mammography systems.
