"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
The global lung cancer screening market size was USD 2.61 billion in 2020. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with lung cancer screening solutions witnessing a slight negative impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the market exhibited a moderate growth of 7.0% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The market is projected to grow from USD 2.80 billion in 2021 to USD 4.85 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 8.1% in the 2021-2028 period. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.
Lung cancer is one of the major types of cancer. It is caused by the uncontrolled growth of cells in the lungs. The occurrence of this cancer is closely related to the consumption of tobacco. In the majority of the cases, tobacco consumption is the primary reason for growing incidence of this type of cancer among general population.
The market is thriving owing to the surge in the incidence of this type of cancer due to the increasing smoking population, technological advancements in screening, and increasing government support for the early detection of cases. Moreover, strategic collaborations and updated recommendations and guidelines on screening are also likely to boost the market growth in the near future.
The Outbreak of COVID-19 Hampered Growth Backed by Lockdowns and Travel Bans
The emergence of the pandemic initially impacted the screening programs globally, especially in the developed countries, owing to travel restrictions and lockdowns imposed by governments. This led to a decline in the number of people screened for this type of cancer. However, resumption of services during later stages of Q2 and in H2 2020 led to an increase in the number of patients screened. This increase compensated for the decline in patients during H1 2020.
