Types of biopsies:
There are different kind of biopsies performed for different conditions and usually sharp tools are required to remove small amount of tissues. Listed below are some of the common types of biopsies:
Needle biopsy, CT-guided biopsy, Bone biopsy, Bone marrow biopsy, Ultrasound-guided biopsy, Liver biopsy, Kidney biopsy, Aspiration biopsy, Skin biopsy, Surgical biopsy
In biopsy, a sample of tissue is removed by a device and then sent to pathologist where thin slices are prepared and mounted on slides. The sample is then dyed and examined under a microscope to check for any abnormalities.
Global Biopsy Devices Market Outlook: Burgeoning growth in incidence rate of cancer fueling demand for preventive tests.
High incidence of cancer is one of the main factor responsible for growth of the biopsy devices market. As per statistics released by the World Health Organization (WHO), around 14 million new cases of cancer were reported worldwide in 2012, with incidence rate expected to surge by exponentially by 70% over the following two decades. Furthermore, growing geriatric population characterized by a weak immune system, across the globe and increasing consumer health awareness leading to increasing preventive screening are other factors inadvertently fueling growth of the biopsy device market. Apart from this, stringent regulations posed on the companies in terms of labeling, designing and performance issues, as well as high cost of the devices are the major restrain factors which are hampering market growth. One of the main example of this is regular inspection by the regulatory authorities, in which evaluation of the equipment, records inspection and licensure are checked.
Global biopsy device market is projected to witness steady growth in the foreseeable future, with North America, followed by Europe being the largest revenue contributors collectively accounting for around 70% of the overall market. However, rampant increase in government spending on strengthening the healthcare infrastructure in emerging economies such as India and China, in turn is expected to position Asia Pacific as the fastest growing market for biopsy devices through 2024.
On the basis of product type, the global biopsy device market is divided as follows:
Needle based biopsy devices (disposable and reusable)
Vacuum-assisted Biopsy (VAB) Devices
Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy (FNAB) Devices
Core Needle Biopsy (CNB) devices
Owing to their ease of use and wide availability, needle based biopsy devices account for the largest market share and are expected to retain their dominance in the market through 2024.
On the basis of technology, the biopsy devices market is segmented as follows:
On the basis of end user, the biopsy devices market is segmented as follows:
Ambulatory surgical centers
Vacuum assisted biopsy procedure is one of the most important diagnostic methods for the diagnosis of breast cancer
On the basis of Anatomy, the biopsy devices market is segmented as follows:
