Japan Proton Therapy Market, Forecast, Reimbursement Policies & Patients Treated at Centers

Proton Therapy Market in Japan was only more than US$ 100 Million in 2016, whereas Untapped Proton Therapy Market was more than US$ 6 Billion in 2016. This figure shows there is a huge demand and supply mismatch and Proton Therapy Market future in Japan is very bright. The number of patients treated by proton beam therapy in Japan since 2000 has significantly increased; in 2016, 11 proton therapy centers were available to treat patients. Especially, proton beam therapy is very useful for pediatric cancer. Proton Therapy in Japan is therefore often used with cancers that were previously difficult to treat only with traditional surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy. These include prostate cancer, liver cancer, brain, cervical and optical tumors and pediatric cancers.
