Thus, the growing prevalence of cervical cancer is expected to drive the demand for cytology brushes for the examination of cervical cancer cells.
Additionally, the growing prevalence of respiratory diseases is likely to support the growth of the market over the forecast period. The data updated by the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in September 2022 mentioned that 873,000 emergency department visits with COPD were reported in 2020 in the United States, and 5% of adults were diagnosed with COPD, emphysema, or chronic bronchitis for the first time. Lung abnormalities are diagnosed using respiratory tract cytology. It also participates in a variety of infectious and inflammatory processes, which is anticipated to fuel demand for cytology brushes and accelerate the market's expansion over the forecast period.
Thus, all the above-mentioned factors are expected to boost market growth over the forecast period. However, the low sensitivity of cytology tests may restrain the market growth over the forecast period.
Cytology Brushes Market Trends
The Gynecological Segment is Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Studied Market Over The Forecast Period.The gynecological segment is expected to hold a significant share of the cytology brush market through the forecast period. The growing prevalence of gynecological diseases and conditions, such as cervical cancer, uterine cancer, vaginal melanoma, extended bleeding, and irregular menstrual cycles, are primarily resulting in increased demand for cytology brushes in gynecology disorder diagnosis and treatments. According to the Cancer Council updated in 2021, in Australia, 913 cases of cervical cancer were diagnosed in 2021. Thus, the growing prevalence of cervical cancer is expected to rise in demand for its diagnosis and cytological examination, thereby boosting segment growth.
Moreover, to increase the research and development of gynecological cancer research, research institutes have implemented various strategies such as seminars and poster presentations to introduce different ideas from academics and clinicians in order to grow gynecological research activities. For instance, in September 2022, the Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer and the American Association for Cancer Research is presenting the 'Virtual Ovarian Cancer Research Series.' The seminar series aims to bring together academics and clinicians from various institutions and disciplines from across the world to exchange ideas and develop the field of ovarian cancer research.
Thus, all aforementioned factors are expected to boost the growth of the segment over the forecast period.
North America Dominates the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period.North America dominates the market, and it is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. Significant awareness about chronic ailments and regular health screening, favorable government reimbursement policies, and availability of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure is expected to drive the demand for the cytological examination, which in turn will lead to a surge in demand for cytology brushes North American region. According to the American Cancer Society, in 2022, there were around 13,800 new cases of invasive cervical cancer diagnosed, and about 4,290 women died from cervical cancer. Additionally, as per the same source, there are more than 600,000 survivors of endometrial cancer in the United States. As per the same source, around 65,950 new cases of cancer of the body of the uterus (uterine body or corpus) are expected to be diagnosed in 2022. Thus, the growing prevalence of gynecological diseases is expected to rise in demand for cytological examination of gynecological diseases, thereby boosting the demand for cytology brushes over the forecast period.
Furthermore, growing cancer research and development activity is predicted to drive market expansion. It is expected that research on gynecological cancer would likely rise to bring technologically advanced diagnostic tools to market, including cytology brushes. According to National Cancer Institute (NIC) data updated in March 2022, the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2022 allocated USD 6.9 billion to National Cancer Institute (NIC), a USD 353 million net increase over FY 2021. Included in the FY 2022 allocation is USD 194 million in funding for the Cancer Moonshot and USD 50 million for the Childhood Cancer Data Initiative. Such initiatives are encouraging research activity which is likely to support the growth of the market.
Thus, all aforementioned factors are expected to boost the market in the region over the forecast period.
