Upsurge in cancer incidences boosting the growth of biopsy devices market

Biopsy devices are a surgeon’s tool, they are used to extract sample cells and/or tissues for the purpose of examination and for determining the extent or presence of disease. Biopsy comes from Bio meaning life and opsis meaning a sight or eye, these Greek roots give it the meaning the process of viewing.

Biopsy devices are used to extract cells and determine whether a lesion is malignant or benign, and helps in differentiating the type of cancer, a needle is used to collect tissue which is sometimes termed as a to bite a sample. Biopsy devices are involved in a lot of inflammatory conditions too and can be used to certain the extent of diseases such as kidney diseases, infectious diseases like autoimmune disorders, metabolic diseases, to check the status of transplanted organs and to check for fertility even.

Cancer cells are notorious for hiding their absence and their effects not being apparent until its too late for the patient. These cells which result from an unhealthy multiplication of otherwise normal cells do not show any symptoms in the patient and very often when they do, the disease is mistaken for something else. Biopsy devices are quick identifiers for the manifestation of these harmful cells and are used to find the incidence of all kinds of diseases.

Bone marrow biopsy is used to diagnose blood cancers like lymphoma and leukemia, it can also detect cancer which might have started somewhere else in the body and later on traveled to the bone marrow. Then there is Endoscopic biopsy that is used collect tissues from bladders, lungs and the colon.For tumors that the doctor can sense through the skin, a needle biopsy is used such as skin cancers, breast lumps, and enlarged lymph nodes. Usually, anesthetics are provided for the duration of the biopsy.

The biopsy devices market has seen a recent growth due to the rising occurrences of cancer such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, and lung cancer, in various parts of the world. Biopsy devices help in classifying these cancers faster and to let the medical professionals carefully study the type and suggest treatment. Increased awareness among the masses is also a major driving factor of the Biopsy devices market since these devices help in early identification of chronic diseases. In some cases, a biopsy may take a few days to give back results in others for example during surgeries a pathologist may examine a sample of cells and results are immediately available to the surgeon in minutes.

North America due to increasing geriatric population and technological advancements in the past decade is the stronghold of biopsy devices although it doesn’t help that they don’t have universal healthcare meanwhile Europe is the second key market for biopsy devices due to innovations in biotechnology and research sectors specifically for this purpose and also due to easy availability of healthcare in most European union members. Asia-Pacific due to is rising population, increased awareness regarding overall healthcare opportunities are estimated to be the fastest growing market for Biopsy devices in the coming decade.

Various corporations are consistently involved In the Biopsy Devices market, there is quite a good competition which drives both innovation and also easy and cheaper availability for the patients. Cancer is a huge issue medically with its origin still quite unknown and being researched on with a huge emphasis on the identification and early detection of these rogue cells. Biopsy device market is growing rapidly to cater to hospitals and research institutes alike as they race to find a cure.
