Radiotherapy Market by Type (External (IGRT, IMRT, 3D-CRT, Stereotactic), Brachytherapy (LDR, HDR)), Product (LINAC, CyberKnife, Gamma Knife, Tomotherapy, Particle Therapy, Cyclotron), Application (Prostate, Breast), End User (Hospital) - Forecasts to 2023
“The radiotherapy market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period”
The global radiotherapy market is projected to reach USD 6.8 billion by 2023 from USD 5.6 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 4.1%. Growth in this market is largely driven by factors such as the growing global prevalence of cancer, increasing adoption of radiotherapy in clinical trials, and the increasing number of radiotherapy centers worldwide. However, the underdeveloped public health infrastructure in emerging countries, shortage of trained and skilled radiation oncologists, and the limited access to and affordability of various radiotherapy treatment options are the major factors that are expected to restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period.
