One of the key causes of the breast implant market is the rising prevalence of breast cancer around the world. Breast cancer has surpassed lung cancer as the most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide, according to GLOBOCAN 2020. According to the World Health Organization, around 2.3 million women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020, with 685,000 of them dying. In addition, over the last five years, over 7.8 million women have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Breast cancer was found to be so common in Asian women that it accounted for 22.9 percent of all cancer cases in women in 2020. The increased inclination and knowledge of women globally toward breast augmentation is another factor that is predicted to promote the market's growth.
