In the secondary research process, various secondary sources were referred to identify and collect information. Secondary sources include annual reports, press releases and investor presentations of companies, white papers, medical journals, certified publications, articles from recognized authors, gold standard and silver standard websites, disease-specific organizations, directories, and databases.
Secondary research was mainly used to obtain key information about the industrys supply chain, markets monetary chain, total pool of key players, market classification and segmentation according to industry trends to the bottom-most level, geographical markets, and key developments from both market- and technology-oriented perspectives.
In the primary research process, various primary sources from both supply and demand sides were interviewed to obtain qualitative and quantitative information for this report. The primary sources from the supply side include industry experts such as CEOs, vice presidents, marketing directors, technology and innovation directors, and related key executives from various key companies and organizations operating in the breast biopsy market. The primary sources from the demand side include scientists, pathologists, doctors, and purchase managers of research institutes, government and private hospitals, biotechnology industries, and academic institutes.
After complete market engineering (which includes calculations for market statistics, market breakdown, market size estimations, market forecasting, and data triangulation), extensive primary research was conducted to gather information and to verify and validate the critical numbers arrived at. Primary research was also conducted to identify the segmentation types; industry trends; pest analysis; key players; competitive landscape of the breast biopsy supplied by different types of market players; and key market dynamics such as drivers, restraints, opportunities, challenges, winning imperatives, industry trends, and key player strategies.
In the complete market engineering process, both top-down and bottom-up approaches were extensively used along with several data triangulation methods to perform market estimation and market forecasting for the overall market segments and subsegments listed in this report. Extensive qualitative and quantitative analysis was performed on the complete market engineering process to list the key information/insights throughout the report.
2.1 MARKET SIZE ESTIMATION
Both, top-down and bottom-up approaches were used to estimate and validate the size of the breast biopsy market and to estimate the size of various other dependent submarkets in the overall breast biopsy market.
THE RESEARCH METHODOLOGY USED TO ESTIMATE THE MARKET SIZE INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING DETAILS:
The market shares of the key players were extracted through secondary and primary research and added up to reach the global market value. This entire procedure includes the study of the annual and financial reports of the top market players and extensive interviews for key insights from industry leaders such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and marketing executives
