Published on : Mar 14, 2017

ALBANY, NY, March 14, 2017: Cervical cancer, resulting from the abnormal growth of cervical cells in the cervix, is spread via a virus called human papilloma virus (HPV). Cervical cancer is mostly caused by HPV 16 and HPV 18 virus that also result in anal cancer and penile cancer in men. On account of the rising number of cervical cancer diagnostic tests such as Pap smear tests, HPV testing, and colposcopy for early detection, the market has become highly competitive.

Pap test is the most widely used test for detection of pre-cancer stages on account of its affordability. It is followed by visual inspection with acetic acids (VIA). The HPV test is mostly carried out for screening high risk cancer cells and not much for cervical cancer detection. Such screening tests are used and conducted by various end-users such as diagnostic centers, hospitals, clinics, home care, and laboratories. Among them, the clinics segment rakes in maximum revenue and is trailed by hospitals and laboratories.

The report studies the global cervical cancer screening market, estimates its current size, and forecasts its future. At present the market is fragmented with numerous large, medium, and small sized companies competing against each other for a larger share in it. The vendors compete against each other based on pricing, product sensitivity, product differentiation, and high investments. The market is predicted to be worth US$7 bn by 2020.

Some of the factors leading to the growth in the global cervical cancer screening market is the rise in awareness about the malady and favorable health care policies.
