US 3D Mammography Systems Market to rise

The Americas' mammography systems market value will increase from approximately $390 million in 2013 to $1.1 billion by 2020, driven primarily by the uptake of 3D systems in the US and healthy demand for 2D systems in Canada, Mexico and Brazil.

The report states that the US will continue to hold the dominant share, with its overall market value forecast to exceed $925 million by 2020.

US sales of 3D systems will increase year-on-year during the forecast period and will overtake the falling 2D market in 2016. The gap will continue to widen thereafter, although the US 2D space will still be worth over $168 million by 2020, more than the entire Canadian and Mexican mammography markets combined.

The rapid adoption of 3D systems in the US is due to technical advantages, such as improved breast cancer detection rate, the ability to handle higher procedure volumes and a more favorable reimbursement scenario.
