The growing number of breast cancer cases across the MEA is majorly boosting the mammography market growth in MEA. Breast cancer is among the most common cancers seen among the female population. The mammography technique helps detect early signs of breast cancer when women cannot experience any symptoms. Due to the increasing mortality rate among women, the demand for mammography screening has increased, resulting in increasing market growth.

The growing awareness among the women population regarding the treatment options for breast cancer in MEA is another notable factor contributing to the regional market growth. Due to the increasing literacy rate among the women population, all these people know about the consequence of breast cancer and the benefits of early detection of breast cancer through mammography screening. The government conducts several awareness programs on women's special days like women's days etc to know about the importance of having breast screening after 35 years of age. Few companies also provide free mammography screening programs to their female employees. All these factors help the market growth during the forecast period.

The growing adoption of technological advancements in the development and manufacturing of mammography devices and increasing investments by the key market players are propelling the mammography market in MEA. Breast tomosynthesis is the advanced form of 3D mammography which uses a lower dose of X-rays and produces images of the breast which helps to detect cancer. In addition, advanced technologies such as machine learning, deep learning, and image processing are used to analyze breast cancer images which help to detect normal or abnormal lesions in mammography techniques. Manufacturers and key players are focused on developing advanced devices for breast cancer screening and improving the image quality for detecting cancer cells or abnormal cells in the breast.

Furthermore, the growing number of R&D for the advancements in mammography, the presence of favorable reimbursement policies, and increasing product approvals support the mammography market growth in MEA.

On the other hand, side effects of radiation exposure and risk due to screening primarily hampers the growth of the mammography market in MEA. The scarcity of more skilled professionals and lack of proper infrastructure further hinder the regional market growth. Poor awareness regarding the benefits of mammography is inhibiting the growth rate of the market.
