Breast imaging is a type of medical technology that involves imaging breasts for screening and diagnosis purposes. Breast imaging technology gives radiological pictures of breasts, and helps to detect many breast-related disorders such as lesions, fibrocytes, fibroadenomas, blocked milk ducts, intraductal papilloma’s, cysts, infections, and others. Physicians, oncology surgeons, market players, and others are using these technologies and tools to perform screening of breast structure, cells composition, and other internal parts of the breast to detect and diagnose breast cancer. If breast cancer cells are detected at an early stage, its survival rate can be high, which lowers the chances of death among the breast cancer patients. Breast imaging has played a major role in breast cancer screening, which has led to reduction in the mortality rate of breast-related disorders. After cervical cancer, breast cancer is the second-highest cause of death among women across the globe. Breast cancer develops in women at any age after puberty but the risk of breast cancer increases with age. It is majorly diagnosed in women over 55 years of age. Widespread use of hormone replacement therapy after menopause, increasing age, obesity, harmful use of alcohol, excessive radiation exposure, hormonal imbalances, various reproductive disorders, family history of breast cancer, and genetics are some factors that increase the risk of breast cancer among women across the globe. According to the World Health Organization reports, about 2.3 million women across the world were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020, while around 685,000 women succumbed to it. Around 7.8 million women were diagnosed with breast cancer in the past 5 years, making it the world’s most prevalent cancer. Approximately 0.5-1% of breast cancer cases are detected among men. With increasing adoption of breast imaging techniques, clinicians detect and conduct early diagnosis before the actual symptoms appear. This is critical in reducing the incidence of breast cancer. Such imaging tests help doctors to find the type of cancer, location of the cancer as well as determine the stage of breast cancer.

COVID-19 IMPACT

The outbreak of COVID-19 across the globe affected almost all the sectors and markets around the world. The pandemic has had a significant impact on the healthcare sector and led to various complications while maintaining the essential health services. Lockdowns and other restrictions implemented by governments throughout the world affected the healthcare workers. The rapid influx of COVID-19 patients put pressure on healthcare systems, creating shortage of hospital rooms and disrupting the routine treatment of cancer patients whose conditions are likely to be worsened when standard care is delayed. Restrictions on movement during the lockdown delayed the routine breast examination and screening of cancer diagnosis patients, which had a negative impact on the breast imaging market, especially in the US and Europe. High rate of COVID-19 cases among the health workers is reducing the availability of medical staff and leading to shortage of resources in hospitals. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), as of April 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has hit over 22,000 health care workers across 52 countries. In the US, the number of health care workers who tested positive for coronavirus is anticipated to be far higher than the reported tally of 9,200. Such a huge impact on the functionality of hospitals and other health care systems led to significant decline in breast cancer diagnoses and had a negative impact on the breast imaging market.
