LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#BreastCancer–Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death of women worldwide.
In Canada, according to the Canadian Cancer Society, one in every nine
women is expected to develop breast cancer in her lifetime, and one in
thirty will die from it. Though breast cancer rates were high relatively
high in the 1990s, they decreased in the 2000s—and continue to remain
much lower than they were in the 80s and 90s—thanks to the increased use
of mammography. Mammography can detect early breast cancer in women
experiencing no symptoms and is an essential tool and lifesaving
measure. According to Infiniti
Research, the global market for mammography devices and
equipment will grow at a rate of more than 9% until 2020.
Infiniti Research has recently completed a market assessment on the
mammography device market for a leading global manufacturer and supplier
of diagnostic products, medical imaging systems, and surgical products.
The purpose of this study was to help the client assess and analyze the
competitive landscape for mammography devices.
Though 2D mammography has long been an effective and affordable industry
standard, 3D mammography is becoming more popular. While 2D mammography
captures two static images of the breast, 3D mammography takes multiple
images of the breast, allowing for a more comprehensive and accurate
picture, and reducing the risk of missing abnormalities due to image
overlap. However, the benefits of 3D mammography over 2D have yet to be
fully proven, and 3D mammography is more expensive for uninsured
patients. Another popular method involves combining 2D and 3D
mammography, though this is currently very new. Some studies have
suggested that 3D mammography puts the patient at a higher risk for
cancer from radiation, though this has not yet been confirmed.

Because the use of 3D and combination 2D-3D mammography is still
relatively new and the risks associated with it are still largely
unknown or unconfirmed, market
intelligence is critical for vendors looking to enter this
market. To keep their patients safe and establish themselves as
reliable, vendors need to be up-to-date on market trends and
developments, medical advancements and challenges, and how breast cancer
incidence and treatment differs around the world.
In their latest assessment of the global
mammography device market, Infiniti’s market intelligence analysts
helped their client, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of
diagnostic products, to gain an in-depth understanding of how the
competitive landscape for mammography devices and equipment differed
across the world, with special focus on target countries including the
US, Germany, China, Great Britain, Australia, and France. Infiniti’s
analysts researched and monitored the latest developments in the market
through journals and whitepapers, and also conducted extensive
interviews with stakeholders such as channel partners, business
executives, and suppliers in order to develop a holistic overview of the
