Radiotherapy Market
Radiotherapy Market

Global Radiotherapy Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 6% during the forecast period. The global radiotherapy market is anticipated to witness an uptick owing to the rising prevalence of various cancers, technological advancements, and growing demand for non-invasive treatment options for cancer. In addition to this,  the rising focus of researchers on developing an effective cancer treatment leading to an increase in spending on the oncology sector is also adding to the pace of the growth of the market. For instance, in 2020, global oncology spending totaled USD 167 billion and is expected to reach USD 206 billion by 2022. Furthermore, the radiotherapy market is anticipated to grow on account of the growing adoption of radiation therapy, technological advancements, and expedited FDA approvals for radiation therapy. For example, the Elekta Harmony radiotherapy system gained FDA clearance in the summer of 2021 and was on display for the first time at the American Society of Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) 2021 meeting. This system offers fast treatments and the ability to track and treat multiple metastases at the same time.

Siemens Healthineers AG, Accuray Incorporated, Elekta AB, Becton, Dickinson and Company, ViewRay Technologies Inc., Hitachi Ltd., IsoRay Inc., ZEISS Group, Mevion Medical Systems Inc., Panacea Medical Technologies Pvt.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst technology, external beam radiotherapy category to witness higher CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on technology, the radiotherapy market is segmented into external beam radiotherapy, internal beam radiotherapy, and systemic radiotherapy. The external beam radiotherapy segment accounted for a significant market share in 2020 and it is estimated that it will grow rapidly during the projected timeframe as this technology provides an accuracy of the direct beams at the cancerous cells, thus causing less damage to normal tissues. Further, it also allows oncologists to use higher doses of radiotherapy for treatment which is also driving the market growth.

“Amongst application, breast cancer to hold a significant share in the market in 2020”

Based on application, the radiotherapy market is classified into prostate cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, cervical cancer, spine cancer, head & neck cancer, and others. In 2020, the breast cancer segment grabbed a considerable market share, and it is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period owing to the rise in incidences of this type of cancer. For instance, according to the World Health Organization, in 2020, nearly 2.26 million cases of breast cancer alone.

“Amongst end-users, hospitals to hold a significant share in the market in 2020”

Based on end-users, the market is fragmented into hospitals, radiation therapy centers, and others. In 2020, the hospital segment grabbed a considerable market share, and it is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is attributed to the growing number of private hospitals in various emerging economies and better accessibility of healthcare services at hospitals leading to a rise in the preference of patients to avail treatment in hospitals.

“North America to hold a significant share in the market”

For a better understanding of the market adoption of the radiotherapy industry, the market is analyzed based on its worldwide presence in the countries such as North America (U.S., Canada, Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, U.K., France, Spain, Italy, Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Rest of Asia-Pacific), Rest of World. North America is anticipated to grow at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period. The major factors such as favorable government initiatives, increased investments in research and development for radiotherapy coupled with technological advancements, the rapid increase in the geriatric population, and the rising number of cancer incidences are propelling the growth of this market in the region. For instance, the number of Americans aged 60 and older increased by 34% from 55.7 million to 74.6 million between 2009 and 2019.
