According to a recent Future Market Insights publication titled “Radiotherapy Devices Market: Global Industry Analysis & Opportunity Assessment 2017 – 2027”, the global radiotherapy devices market is estimated to move from a market valuation of just about US$ 4 Bn in 2016 to a figure of a little over US$ 10 Bn by the end of a 10 year period ending in 2027. This is reflective of a CAGR of 9.5% during the period 2017 – 2027. This significant growth is driven by several factors that impact revenue generation across the various regional markets.
Key drivers fuelling revenue growth of the global radiotherapy devices market
Rising instances of cancer across the globe: The adoption of western lifestyles and rise in unhealthy habits such as smoking, lack of physical activity, poor diet, etc. in economically developing countries will place a huge burden of cancer across the global populace. The demand for radiotherapy as a treatment option will be bolstered as a result.
Patient preference for minimally invasive techniques: Patients suffering from cancer, especially breast cancer (the second most common cancer in the world) are showing an increasing preference for minimally invasive treatment techniques and this is anticipated to fuel the growth in demand for radiotherapy.
Growing popularity of radiotherapy devices among oncologists: Radiation therapy being the most popular therapy type in cancer management, oncologists across the world are showing an inclination towards radiotherapy devices, given the fact that more than 50% of cancer patients are likely to receive radiotherapy during the course of their treatment – either in primary disease management or for symptom control.
