SAN FRANCISCO - Feb. 25, 2014 - PRLog -- Reportstack’s latest report Biopsy Devices – Global Analysis and Market Forecasts (, estimates that the biopsy devices market in emerging economies, such as China, India and Brazil, will increase at much higher CAGRS than the global rate, reaching shares of 24%, 10% and 6% by 2019, respectively. Despite the modest global growth, several barriers are dampening the potential adoption of biopsy devices within a number of markets. Notably in the US, reimbursement for image-guided breast biopsies has undergone drastic cuts, which Reportstack expects will have a significant effect on the adoption of more expensive vacuum-assisted biopsy (VAB) devices.

Joseph Gregory, GlobalData’s Analyst covering Surgical Devices, says: “Additionally, routine screening for prostate cancer and breast cancer has come under scrutiny, as sophisticated clinical trials reveal that these interventions have a minimal impact on the cancer related mortality. This is a long-term setback for the adoption of biopsy devices in diagnosing these cancers, given that these criticisms could curb adoption of routine screening.” While these challenges are likely to affect the biopsy devices market, GlobalData believes that current and future players can still position themselves to obtain a competitive advantage.

“The major European countries have general mass-screening programs for breast cancer detection and will be increasing their adoption of VAB devices over the forecast period. Additionally, the emerging economies are increasing their access to healthcare resources and showing a preference for more expensive core needle biopsy devices over fine needle aspiration devices,” Gregory concludes. Companies mentioned in this report are Argon Medical Devices, Boston Scientific, Cardinal Health, Carefusion Corporation, Cook Medical, C.R.Bard, Devicor Medical Products, DTR Medical, Gallini Medical Devices, Hologic, INRAD, Intact Medical Corporation and TSK Laboratory. The regions covered are US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Japan, Brazil, China, and India. Please visit Biopsy Devices Market ( report for more details and table of contents.
