Market Overview

Global Radiotherapy Market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.10% during the forecast period (2020-2027).

Radiotherapy, also known as radiation therapy, is used for cancer patients to cure cancer by destroying the cancer cells and reducing the size of tumors. X-rays, gamma rays, and charged particles are commonly used radiations during radiotherapy. Based on severity of cancer, the radiation beam can be applied externally, internally or systemically. The latest developments in the implementation of Computed tomography aided intensity-modulated radiotherapy, and image-guided techniques are expected to boost the market growth over the forecast period. Increase in demand for cancer treatments are expected to give lucrative opportunities for market growth during the forecast period.

Market Dynamics

The global radiotherapy market is driven by the rising prevalence of cancer, considerable investments in research and development activities of cancer treatment, technological advancements in radiotherapy devices, rising geriatric population, increasing adoption of radiotherapy devices and procedures, rise in the number of awareness campaigns regarding the benefits of radiotherapy.

The rising prevalence of cancer is expected to drive the market over the period of forecast. For instance, according to WHO, cancer is responsible for 9.6 million deaths in 2018 and globally, about 1 in 6 deaths is only because of cancer. International Agency for Research on Cancer has estimated that there will be 413,000 new cases in the forecast period.

The presence of advanced radiation therapy techniques is expected to boost the market. For instance, on August 23, 2019, Heidelberg University Hospital, of Germany, has started using the RayStation treatment planning system for carbon ion therapy treatments. The center is using RayStation for both particle therapy and photon therapy currently.

In July 2018, Mirada DLCExpert deep learning software got FDA approval, which automatically identifies segments, organs and auto-contours them as the first step in creating radiation oncology treatment plans. This example of a segmented prostate computed tomography scan is used to plan radiotherapy was created without any human intervention.

The rise in adoption of radiotherapy services is expected to boost the market. For instance, the National Cancer Institute estimates that about 50% of cancer patients receive some radiation therapy during their treatment. According to the UICC Global Task Force on Radiotherapy for Cancer Control, published in The Lancet Oncology, presented at the 2015 European Cancer Congress in Vienna, Austria,  estimates that 204 million fractions of radiotherapy are needed to treat the 12 million cancer patients globally who could benefit from treatment in 2035. Also, according to them, investment in radiotherapy services could bring economic benefits of up to US$ 365 billion in developing countries over the next 20 years. According to a new report published on 7 November 2018, commissioned by the Marie Curie Legacy Campaign, an initiative of the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) and the ESTRO Cancer Foundation (ECF), estimated that by 2035, if every cancer patient who needs radiotherapy has access to it, almost one million more lives globally will be saved annually.

The presence of campaigns for increasing awareness regarding the radiotherapy is expected to boost the market. For instance, on November 7, 2017, The Marie Curie Legacy Campaign, pioneered by the ECF and ESTRO, a global initiative was launched. It raises awareness of the benefits of radiotherapy and optimizes the provision of radiation in Europe and beyond.

However, lack of skilled personnel to perform radiotherapy, the presence of alternative treatments, high cost of equipment are likely to hamper the market.

The actual number of skilled persons required for a radiotherapy procedure depends not only on the number of patients treated but also on other factors, like the complexity of the treatment and the nature of the equipment.

The development of side effects due to radiotherapy is likely to hinder the quality of life of cancer patients. Natural products, including crude extracts, bioactive components -enriched fractions, pure compounds prepared from herbs as well as herbal formulas, are proved to prevent and treat cancer. Radiotherapy induced esophagitis and enteropathy are significant issues for long term cancer survivors. Chinese herbal medicine Zhu-Ye-Shi-Gao granules can treat recurrent oral ulcer and chronic pharyngitis. Thus, the presence of competent alternative treatment options for radiotherapy is expected to restrain the market.
