The rising prevalence of breast cancer among women is driving the mammography market growth. Mammography is an X-ray imaging method that is used for detecting breast cancer at an early stage. Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer faced by the European population. According to a report of the Joint Research Commission of the European Commission in 2021, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in Europe reporting; that more than 355,000 women in the European Union were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2021, which is 13.4% among all cancer diagnosis. The rising cases of breast cancer are demanding better diagnosis techniques, which is increasing the mammography market expansion across the European region the rising technological advancements in the diagnosis procedures which is increasing the screening methods. The improvements in breast cancer imaging technology are raising the cases of early detection of breast cancer. 

The increasing government initiatives for bringing awareness of breast cancer among the people are boosting the growth of market value. According to an article published in October 2021, “Breast Cancer Affects Us All” is the breast cancer awareness campaign created by Wefra Life and the non-profit association Pink Ribbon Germany in collaboration with the government. These initiatives and actions by the government are expected to raise the demand for mammography techniques among the people by raising the market revenue. 

Several health professionals and organizations are raising awareness of breast cancer, which is influencing people to take diagnostic tests for positive cases, which is expected to create growth opportunities for the mammography market in Europe. The government guidelines and regulations for mammography screening are gaining trust among the European population, creating possibilities for market expansion. The rising advancements in technological procedures are making diagnosis simple by emitting rapid results, which is expected to augment the market

Exposure to ionizing radiation is the primary factor hampering the mammography market expansion. Mammography has shown false positives in some cases where overdiagnosis is also noted. Sensitivity is high in the mammography procedure where some cases noted the radiation injury. All these factors are hindering the adoption of mammography procedures, impacting the market revenue.

The major restraining factor for mammography is in the case of certain types of breasts; the interpretation is difficult due to the variation in breast tissue density. In some specific cases, only mammography is not enough for the diagnosis, which demands other procedures such as MRI to raise the accuracy of the exam. In most cases, mammography detects the mass in breasts, which does not require any treatment as they can be clinically solved. These factors are estimated to be challenging for market expansion across the European region.
