Asia Proton Therapy Market (Actual & Potential), Patients Treated, List of Proton Therapy Centers and Forecast to 2022

Asia proton therapy market is anticipated to almost three-fold during the period 2016 – 2022. The number of proton therapy centers is continuously increasing in Asia. Still, it is believed that players will miss out on a majority of cancer patients who can benefit with proton therapy, overlooking a huge multi-Billion-dollar potential market. The number of patients treated with Proton Therapy is very low whereas; the potential candidates for proton therapy are huge.

Key Points Covered in the Report:

  • Asia accounts for around 60% of the world population and half the global burden of cancer.
  • In Asia, Japan is the leading market for proton therapy controlling xx% share in 2016.
  • Mitsubishi is the leading player in proton therapy market in Japan. However, other players like IBA, Hitachi, Sumitomo etc. have also started to make their presence felt in the market.
