The next-generation oncology devices and solutions market is still in its developmental phase, with ongoing research and development efforts aimed at creating more innovative products.
The market’s growth potential lies in the increasing demand for home-based cancer testing and the rising need for targeted therapies.
The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in delayed cancer diagnoses as patients prioritized managing COVID-19 cases and were concerned about virus transmission. Prior to the pandemic, cancer screening and treatment were primarily conducted in hospitals and clinical facilities, with home-based oncology care still in its early stages. However, the pandemic led to a deferment of screenings and treatments for various types of cancer. Travel restrictions and the risk of virus transmission prompted an increased demand for home-based care. Teleconsultations became more prevalent across the healthcare industry, and there was a higher demand for home-based tests to screen and monitor cancer conditions. Software solutions for oncology also experienced increased demand due to the pandemic.
As the COVID-19 recovery phase begins, cancer diagnosis and treatment procedures are expected to return to normal. However, the preference for home-based care is likely to continue even after the pandemic subsides.
The market is segmented based on various factors, including clinical application, type, end user, and region.

The breast cancer and others segment is expected to dominate the clinical application segment of the global next-generation oncology devices and solutions market. During the period 2021-2031, breast cancer is projected to create the highest incremental opportunity of $713 million, followed by prostate cancer at $696 million. Breast cancer affects a significant number of women worldwide, as highlighted in an August 2021 article titled Breast Cancer published in NCBI. The article states that one in eight women in the U.S. is affected by breast cancer. Additionally, a March 2017 paper published in NCBI titled Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Creates Surgery Opportunities for Inoperable Locally Advanced Breast Cancer emphasizes the potential of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) in treating locally advanced breast cancer. NAC effectively inhibits tumor metastasis and improves survival rates.
In terms of segmentation based on type, the global next-generation oncology devices and solutions market includes devices and software. The software segment is expected to generate the highest incremental opportunity of $1,505 million between 2021 and 2031. Software plays a crucial role in oncology, particularly in the clinical interpretation of imaging scans. It aids in the detection of abnormalities and lesions that may be overlooked during routine examinations. By improving accuracy and confidence in reporting cancer cases, this software benefits radiologists and oncologists.
The hospital segment dominates the end-user segment of the global next-generation oncology devices and solutions market. During the period 2021-2031, hospitals are anticipated to create the highest incremental opportunity of $1,472 million, followed by diagnostic imaging centers at $903 million. Hospitals hold a substantial share of the market, accounting for 61.00% in 2021 and projected to reach 58.04% by the end of the forecast period. These institutions provide both outpatient and inpatient services for cancer diagnosis and treatment. Many multi-specialty hospitals globally have specialized oncology departments dedicated to addressing various types of cancer. A study published in October 2019 in NCBI titled Health Care Expenditure Burden of Cancer Care in the United States reveals that annual healthcare expenditure on cancer patients in hospital inpatient services was nearly 3.5 times higher compared to non-cancer patients. The COVID-19 pandemic further burdened hospitals worldwide due to the high number of cases and bed shortages.
With a 41.65% share in 2021, North America emerged as the largest market, followed by Europe at 29.27%. Asia Pacific and Rest-of-the-World are expected to experience significant growth with CAGRs of 8.00% and 7.01%, respectively, during the forecast period 2022-2031. The dominance of North America can be attributed to substantial investments by public and private companies in adopting innovative solutions using various technologies and software. The region presents diverse opportunities for next-generation oncology solution companies. Notably, several innovative and emerging companies in the U.S. are developing advanced oncology solutions utilizing artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies. For example, in March 2022, Paige AI Inc. launched a new pathology AI for detecting breast cancer metastases in lymph nodes. These advancements highlight the potential for further development of oncology solutions using the latest technologies in the region.
The competitive landscape encompasses the significant developments and strategies implemented in the global next-generation oncology devices and solutions market from January 2018 to April 2022.
