The head and neck cancer diagnostics market is expected to grow at a high rate. Some of the major trends driving the market are the increasing number of cases of target diseases, growing aging population that increased the prevalence of chronic diseases, increasing number of diagnostic procedures for head and neck cancer, and better healthcare initiatives by governments and various private organizations.
The increasing disposable incomes that lead to rise in the healthcare expenditure of people, rising demand for diagnostic imaging, advances in treatment modes, and incorporation of novel technologies in diagnostic equipment will further propel market growth during the forecast period.
Some of the restraining factors for this market includes the low adoption rate of digital technology-based systems, conventional CT and MRI scanners, excise duty imposed on sale of medical devices in mature markets, lack of trained professionals for operating the instruments, high cost associated with the treatment modes and lack of awareness among the people.
Diagnostic Imaging Equipment is Expected to Dominate the Market
Medical imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention, as well as visual representation of the function of some organs or tissues (physiology). Head and neck cancer is a group of cancers that usually originate in the squamous cells that line the mouth, nose and throat. To confirm a diagnosis of cancer and determine if it has spread, head MRI, CT of the sinuses, head CT, panoramic dental x-ray, dental cone beam CT, PET/CT or chest imaging are some of the most common procedures.
Moreover, as per Gunnar Juliusson et al. report published in Acta Radiologica Open Journal 2019, the number of CT examinations per 1000 patients has increased from 51 in 2007 to 108 in 2017 in Europe. However this indicates that the more CT scans are being adopted and hence this is expected to positively impact the diagnostic imaging equipment market as well.
North America is Expected to Dominate the Head and Neck Cancer Diagnostics Market
According to the National Health Institute, the head and neck cancer accounts for approximately 4% of all cancers in the United States. This type of cancer is found to be more than twice as common among men as they are among women. The researchers also estimated that more than 65,000 men and women in the country have been diagnosed with head and neck cancer in 2017. Thus, this huge disease burden will help in the growth of the market.
The Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program estimated that 53,000 new cases of oral cavity and pharyngeal cancer occur in the United States in 2019, making up 3% of all new US cancer cases. The SEER Program also estimated that such cancer cases would account for 10,860 US deaths in the year, making up 1.8% of all cancer deaths. Thus, the growth in these programs has helped in the overall growth of the market. In addition, with the rise in the head and neck cancer in the United States, there is an increased demand for diagnostic imaging and new advancements and innovations are seen in the treatment models, which help in the growth of the overall market.
Hence, the increasing geriatric population worldwide, combined with government and private body initiatives are some of the other factors contributing to the growth of the market.
Majority of the head and neck cancer diagnostics equipment are being manufactured by the global key players. Market leaders with more funds for research and better distribution system have established their position in the market. Moreover, Asia-pacific is witnessing an emergence of some small players due to the rise of awareness. This has also helped the market grow.
