Opportunities, and Market Forecast 2019 to 2026
Global radiotherapy market is forecasted to value over USD 7 billion by 2026 end and
register a CAGR of over 4% from the forecast period 2019-2026.
Latest technological advancements, increasing focus of increasing awareness
regarding the benefits and growing prevalence of cancer is driving the market. Based
on the figures released by WHO, cancer is one of the major life-threatening diseases
and it accounted for the deaths of around 9.7 million people worldwide in 2018. The
rising usage of particle therapy for the diagnosis of cancer alongside improving
reimbursement policy is boosting the market. Emerging markets alongside rising
investments of government and private sectors are fueling the market growth.
Improvements and further amendments in image-guided radiotherapy are propelling
the market.
The market is classified into product type, type, application, end-user, and region. In
terms of type, the market is segmented into radiotherapy, internal beam
radiotherapy, systemic radiotherapy, and external beam radiotherapy. External beam
radiotherapy is expected to dominate the growth of the market. The precision and
accuracy offered by external beam radiotherapy for targeting tumour is better than
other methods, which is the primary reason for segment proliferation. In addition,
external beam radiotherapy offers less risk of exposure to radiation. Due to these
factors, end-users have opted for external beam radiotherapy thus inflating the
Based on product type, external beam radiotherapy is expected to achieve the
highest CAGR. Less maintenance and equipment costs of linear accelerators
alongside precise radiation offered by cyberknife is expected to bolster the market.
The 360-degree radiation treatment offered by tomotherapy is adding further
growth opportunities thus spurring the market.
In terms of application, prostate cancer segment of external beam radiotherapy is
expected to showcase significant growth over the forecast period. Minimally longterm risks associated with external beam radiotherapy coupled with the rising cases
of prostate cancer is driving the growth of the market. In addition, the growing
adoption of external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) systems for the treatment of
breast cancer is expected to expand the market.
On the basis of end-user, hospitals are expected to hold the major market share. The
rising cases of cancer have resulted in hospitals demanding more deployment of
advanced radiotherapy equipment which has stimulated the market. The rapid
expansion of hospitals in developed economies alongside favorable government
initiatives aimed towards hospitals inculcating more advanced radiotherapy systems
is boosting the market.
In terms of regions, North America dictates the market growth. The easy
accessibility, high adoption of advanced diagnostic equipment and rising healthcare
expenditure in countries like Canada and the US are stimulating the market in the
region. Asia-Pacific region is expected to showcase exponential growth during the
forecast period. Rapidly improving healthcare infrastructure alongside growing per
capita income in emerging economies like China, Japan and India are bolstering the
market in the region. In addition, favorable policies launched by the governments of
these countries are expected to boost the market growth in the region.
Major players of the market are Hitachi Ltd., IsoRay Medical, Inc, Ion Beam
Applications SA, Provision Healthcare, Varian Medical Systems, Inc, Mevion
Medical Systems, Inc, Panacea Medical Technologies Pvt.Ltd, Accuray Incorporated
and Elekta AB.
