Biopsy is a procedure to perform surgical removal of tissue from an organ to determine the presence or extent of a disease, generally cancerous and inflammatory conditions. Lung biopsyinvolves removal of lung tissues for determining any cancer, infection, or lung disease. Lung biopsy can be performed either by open lung or closed lung procedures. An open lung biopsy is carried out in operating rooms under general anesthesia by making an incision in the skin on the chest and a closed lung biopsy is also called needle biopsy that makes use of a needle for tissue removal. The closed lung biopsy is carried out through skin or trachea. The lung biopsy procedure helps the health professionals to correctly diagnose the suitable treatment for the patient.
Lung biopsy helps in detecting the stages of cancerin patients;thus, increasing the demand for biopsies across the world as it is an important tool for diagnosis and treatment. Biopsy followed by imaging tests helps in determining whether the nodule is cancerous or non-cancerous. As per WHO, in 2018, lung cancer is responsible for the largest number of deaths approximately 1.8 million deaths across the globe because of the poor prognosis for this cancer. Lower respiratory infections remained the deadliest communicable disease, causing 3.0 million deaths worldwide in 2016.
Rise in prevalence of lung cancer in developing as well as developed countries due to adoption of unhealthy lifestyle along with increase in lung infections are anticipated to boost the demand for lung biopsy systems globally. Furthermore, technological advancements such as ultrasound technology and guidance systems like vacuum assisted guns boost the demand for lung biopsy systems in coming years. However, lack of awareness and high costs associated with lung biopsy systemsare expected to hinder the growth of the lung biopsy devices market. Moreover, risks associated with the biopsy treatment such as lesions and fissure puncturehamper the market growth. On the contrary, introduction of new cost-effective lung biopsy systems and widening base of the population associated with lung cancer are anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the lung biopsy devices market across the globe.
