The biopsy is a minimally invasive surgical process performed to remove the tissue from the body for the determination of presence or extent of diseases such as cancer and inflammatory conditions. Generally, the biopsy is carried by radiologists, surgeons, and interventional cardiologists to confirm the presence of disease. A biopsy can be carried for the majority of organs in the body with the aid of specific biopsy devices. The various types of biopsy devices include skin biopsy, shave biopsy, fine needle aspiration, excision and incision biopsy, and vacuum-assisted biopsy among others. Conventional biopsy devices are complimented with the advanced imaging technologies like stereotactic-guided biopsy, CT scan, MRI-guided, ultrasound-guided biopsy, and others. These devices are helping to perform the biopsies in critical areas such as liver, kidney, and lungs.
Biopsy Market Drivers and Restraints
Increase in the prevalence of various cancer diseases such as prostate, breast, and lung cancers, technological development of the biopsy devices, increase the adoption of integrated biopsy technologies, and lack of screening tests for the specific type of cancer are anticipated to drive the market over the forecast period. In addition, increase the awareness about the chronic diseases, rise in global geriatric population, increase in the preference for minimally invasive procedures, and growing importance of disease screening for early treatment expected to propel the market. However, a high cost of the biopsy devices, unfavourable reimbursement policies, stringent regulatory guidelines, and lack of skilled technicians might hamper the growth of the market.
Biopsy devices market is growing at a significant CAGR due to increase in the prevalence of cancer around the globe. Technological advancements of biopsy devices and increase in the demand for biopsy devices in disease screening for early treatment propel the biopsy devices market. Acquisitions and mergers, collaborations, product and patent approvals, and product launches are key strategies followed by players for increasing market revenue growth. For instance, in September 2014, Argon Medical Devices, Inc. acquired Promex Technologies, LLC for diversification of business segment into the soft-tissue biopsy devices. Similarly, in September 2015, MDxHealth acquired the NovioGendix for developing its product portfolio in the prostate cancer diagnosis. Furthermore, in January 2015, Intact Medical Corp. has received the FDA approval for its minimally invasive breast biopsy devices.
