Understanding market size can be crucial to evaluate opportunities and make informed decisions about market entry and exit. Medical device companies can identify attractive segments in respective markets as well as develop marketing strategies based on forecasts for those segments.

Mammography plays a key role in early diagnosis of breast cancer. 2D digital mammography equipment, breast tomosynthesis and retrofit breast tomosynthesis are covered in this category. Tracked here are the equipment only and not accessories and/or additional costs associated with mammography equipment installation. In 2D Digital Mammography Equipment, X-ray beams are captured on the digital camera and images are produced by the computer, and that images are sent electronically to the radiologists to view. Breast tomosynthesis is a system in which the imaging machines moves around the breast in an arc and taking multiple X-rays that is converted by the computer into 3D images. Retrofit breast tomosynthesis systems are digital panel detectors that enable the upgrade of 2D Digital Mammography Equipment to 3D Digital Mammography Equipment by retrofitting rotating gantry DBT (Digital Breast Tomosynthesis) scanner with a spatially distributed CNT (Carbon Nanotube) X-ray source array.

The mammography equipment market in Portugal can expand or contract due to a variety of reasons including population demographics, disease incidence and prevalence, macroeconomic issues, and geopolitical considerations. Disruption to a market could be caused by a sudden, unexpected change in these factors, but it could also be driven by changes in clinical practice, leading to a change in diagnosis or treatment of patients, as part of a process to generally improve medical practice.
