Linear Accelerator Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis by Energy Range (Less than 4 MeV, 4 MeV to 8 MeV, 8 MeV to 12 MeV, and More than 12 MeV), Application (Industrial Radiography, Cargo Screening, Radiation Processing, and Others), Industry (Automotive, Aerospace and Defense, Medical, Food and Beverages, Metals and Mining, and Others), and Geography
The linear accelerator market was valued at US$ 3.79 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 6.80 billion by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2020 to 2027.
The market growth is mainly attributed to the rising demand for cancer treatment procedures and adoption of linear accelerators in border security applications. Moreover, the future growth of the food processing industry is anticipated to drive the growth of the linear accelerator market in the coming years. However, the lack of adoption of radiotherapy linear accelerators in low- and middle- income countries hinders the growth of the linear accelerator market in sacral applications. Accelerators play a significant role in modern healthcare. The medical linear accelerators use high-energy x-rays to destroy cancer cells and tumor shapes without affecting nearby normal tissues. Linear accelerators (LINAC) are innovative devices that have revolutionized cancer treatment with their cost-effectiveness. Further, the healthcare industries have observed a momentous shift in cancer treatment preference from invasive to noninvasive treatment procedures. As noninvasive treatment comprises radiation therapy that is a cost-effective and most advanced treatment option, and it allows treating a broad range of cancer types and could be used alone or in combination with chemotherapy, surgery, and other procedures. Therefore, this shift in consumer preference has led to the rise in acceptance of medical linear accelerators.
