The Global Radiotherapy Market, by Product Type (External Beam Radiation, Internal Beam Radiation, and Systemic Radiation), by Therapy Type (External Beam Radiation Therapy, Internal Beam Radiation Therapy, and Systemic Radiation Therapy), by Application (Prostate Cancer, Breast Cancer, Lung Cancer, Colorectal Cancer, Cervical Cancer, and Others), by End User (Hospitals, Oncology Clinics, and Ambulatory Radiotherapy Centers), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa) was valued at US$ 5,253.7 million in 2016 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.8% over the forecast period (2017 – 2025).
The radiotherapy market is expected to gain significant traction, owing to radiotherapy being a highly effective and affordable therapy for cancer treatment. Recent advancements in radiotherapy techniques to enhance the accuracy of treatment with the approval from regulatory agencies is a major factor augmenting growth of the radiotherapy devices. For instance, in 2017, Hitachi Ltd. received U.S. FDA clearance for the launch and commercialization of Real Time Image Gating System for Proton Beam Therapy Systems (RGPT), enabling patients the access to advanced spot scanning irradiation technology. The system was developed with collaborative efforts of Hokkaido University Hospital and the Clinical Research and Medical Innovation Center. Moreover, increasing number of research groups are collaborating to explore targeted systemic therapies for the advancement of radiotherapy technology, creating potential impact on the market growth. For instance, the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRI) launched the Clinical and Translational Radiotherapy Research Working Group (CTRad), to work towards the national radiotherapy research agenda by developing high-quality radiotherapies, thereby optimizing tumor control and minimizing toxicity for patients receiving radiotherapy.
