Report Outlook

The global breast lesion localization market was valued at USD 333.40 million in 2023 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.70% during the forecast period.

With the development of surgical, imaging, and biological technology, localizing breast lesions has become a more common practice. The first method for locating nonpalpable, image-detected breast lesions was introduced approximately 50 years ago and is called wire localization. The evolution of new technologies for the treatment of breast lesion localization is increasing their adoption rate,driven by their new features. Research and development activities are increasing to innovate new systems in the marketplace to cater to ongoing consumer health issues.

  • For instance, in July 2022, a study published in PLOS ONE innovated a new technology called Mammowave, which detects breast lesions with microwave imaging devices. The data show that automated breast lesion localization using microwave imaging meets the benchmark, attaining 81.82% sensitivity in malignant finding (MF) detection.

Moreover, the growing government initiatives to promote consumer health by enforcing equipment related to breast cancer. This may further drive demand for breast lesion localization technology as it enables surgeons to identify abnormal cells or tissues.

However, the initial costs associated with the installation of breast lesion localization technology are hampering sufficient treatment for the needy, as small healthcare centres with lower budgets are unable to afford the latest technologies, which may hamper the adoption rate in the coming years.

Growth Drivers

  • Rising prevalence of breast cancer among the population, along with organizational initiatives to tackle breast cancer cases

The diagnosis rates of breast cancer have significantly increased over the past few decades due to mammography and other imaging tools, but methods for localizing breast lesions have essentially remained unchanged. Localization techniques are now required in up to 50% of all lumpectomy and surgical biopsy procedures to assure correct removal of the target lesion due to early diagnosis of breast lesions.

According to the World Health Organization, in 2020, 685 000 people world-wide died and 2.3 Mn women were diagnosed with the breast cancer. Half of breast cancer cases affect women who have no known risk factors for the disease other than their gender (female) & age (over 40).

The WHO Global Breast Cancer Initiative (GBCI) aims to prevent 2.5 Mn breast cancer deaths across the globe between 2020 & 2040 by reducing, mortality rate by around, 2.5%. Health promotion for the early detection, prompt diagnosis, & the comprehensive BC management are 3 foundations for achieving such goals. As the organization steps forward to control breast cancer, there will be a need for breast lesion localization technology, as it enables surgeons to detect early and assist patients to recover early.

By Type Analysis

  • Electromagnetic localization segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period

The electromagnetic localization segment is projected to grow at a CAGR during the projected period, mainly driven by its higher ability to detect breast lesions among the patients, which assists the surgeon in an effective treatment procedure with patient safety. The rising innovations in electromagnetic localization technologies, like wireless breast lesion localization systems, enable discomfort for patients and restrict the need for physical wires that are attached to the body. 

By Usage Analysis

  • Breast conservation segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022

The breast conservation segment accounted for the largest breast lesion localization market share. The malignancy and surrounding tissue are removed during breast-conserving surgery. The objective is to remove just enough tissue so that the breast recovers from surgery looking as natural as possible while minimizing the risk of cancer recurrence. The rising demand for breast conservation surgery is driven by patients' preferences to conserve breast shape and appearance. 

The breast biopsy segment is expected to grow at the fastest growth rate over the next few years on account of the improved diagnostic accuracy. During a biopsy, a little bit of tissue is taken and examined in a lab. Breast tissue may be retrieved for a breast biopsy using a unique biopsy needle. It might also be taken out surgically. It is examined to determine whether it contains cancerous or other aberrant cells.

By End User Analysis

  • Ambulatory surgical centers segment held the significant market revenue share in 2022

The ambulatory surgical centers segment held a significant market share in revenue in 2022, which is highly influenced by the continuous rise in minimally invasive procedures. The growing concerns about breast-related health issues like breast cancer among people are motivating them to go into early detection centres like ambulatory surgical centres and driving surgeons to use breast lesion localization procedures for further treatment in the coming years.

Regional Insights

  • North America registered the largest share of the global market in 2022

The North American region accounted for the largest market share. The growing incidence of breast cancer in the region is driving the need for efficient technology in the detection of breast lesion localization systems. According to a study published in JAMA Network, breast (12,649), thyroid (5,869), and colorectal cancers (4,097) had the most early-onset cases of any malignancies reported in 2019 in the US. Countries in the region are working on promoting the health and well-being of citizens.

Furthermore, the American Cancer Society gives recommendations for early detection of breast cancer among the population. Every year, mammograms are advised for women ages 45 to 54. Women 55 and older have the option of continuing with yearly mammograms or switching to a mammogram every other year. As countries in the region understand the need for technology to detect breast cancer as well as equipment for treatment, there will be a huge potential for breast lesion localization technology in the coming years.

The Asia Pacific region is expected to be the fastest growing region with a healthy CAGR during the projected period, largely due to the need for effective tools for surgeon driven by growing health issues related to breast cancer. According to the article published in WebMed, more than 2,87,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are diagnosed in 2022, and one in eight women is expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer throughout their lifetime in the region. This demonstrates the increasing number of breast cancer cases, which may further drive the need for treatment systems like breast lesion localization, as it ensures surgeons can identify abnormal tissue in breast cells.
