Market growth will be driven by the development of new imaging technologies as well as the aging population, which typically requires an above-average number of imaging procedures. In 2015, the largest segment in the breast imaging market was DBT. Most analog devices have already been converted to DR mammography units; thus, the significant growth in DR mammography that was seen is previous years has begun to slow. Furthermore, with the disappearance of analog and takeover of DR mammography the incentive to switch to CR mammography has become greatly reduced. With two out of four segments in decline and another undergoing the process of becoming a replacement market, the only segment remaining to drive market growth is the DBT market.
