Nuclear Medicine/Radiopharmaceuticals Market by Type (Diagnostic (SPECT - Technetium, PET - F-18), Therapeutic (Beta Emitters - I-131, Alpha Emitters, Brachytherapy - Y-90) & by Application (Oncology, Thyroid, Cardiology) - Global Forecasts to 2021
The nuclear medicine/radiopharmaceuticals market is projected to reach USD 7.27 billion by 2021 from USD 4.67 billion in 2016, growing at a CAGR of 9.3% in the next five years (2016 to 2021). Over the years, the nuclear medicine/radiopharmaceuticals market has witnessed various advancements in radiopharmaceuticals. The market is in its growth phase with an increasing number of radioisotope approvals for different clinical indications. Ra-223, I-131, and Y-90 ensured their leading position in the nuclear medicine therapeutic market.
Factors such as advances in radiotracers and increasing incidence and prevalence of cancer and cardiac ailments, introduction of alpha emitters for targeted cancer therapy, high demand for radiopharmaceuticals in emerging markets, upcoming radioisotopes, and increasing new product launches by industry players are expected to drive the nuclear medicine/radiopharmaceuticals market in the coming years. However, the shutdown of major nuclear reactors, which are the main source for radiopharmaceutical production, is a major challenge for the growth of the market.
In 2016, North America is expected to account for the largest share of the global nuclear medicine/radiopharmaceuticals market, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). Asia-Pacific is projected to have the highest growth rate in the forecast period. Factors such as the increasing geriatric population and incidence of cardiovascular diseases & cancer in China & Japan, installation of PET scanners in India, and approval of radium (223Ra) dichloride by the therapeutic goods administration (TGA) in Australia are likely to propel the market in the Asia-Pacific region.
The market witnesses high competitive intensity, as there are several big and many small firms with similar product offerings. These companies adopt various strategies (expansions; new product launches; marketing and promotion; agreements, collaborations, partnerships, and funding; patent approval to increase their market shares and establish a strong foothold in the global market.
