The global Brachytherapy market size is expected to be worth around US$ 552.3 million by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Brachytherapy market size was valued at US$ 448.8 million in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

Technological advancements and R&D investments by key market players are some of the major growth drivers. Salutaris Medical Devices launched the trial of brachytherapy treatment for neovascular age-related macular degeneration. The trial is to study surgeons’ ease in using SalutarisMD system (SMD-DA system) along with the anti-VEGF treatment regimen and the safety of the same.

According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, in 2015, more than 15 million people suffered from cancer while 8.8 million deaths were caused by the disease worldwide. This number is expected to rise to 24 million by 2035. It is also estimated that 23.6 million new cancer cases will be diagnosed by 2030.

According to the American Brachytherapy Society, safety, and efficacy of brachytherapy treatment over other cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and surgery, is expected to boost the market. In addition, favorable reimbursement guidelines are expected to contribute to the rising adoption of brachytherapy.

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) implemented new High-Dose Rate (HDR) treatment delivery codes in 2016. The final rates for 2020 included an increase of approximately 5% to 6% in payments. Increasing usage of these technologies and the presence of favorable reimbursement policies in developing countries are expected to further fuel growth of the brachytherapy market.

Report Highlights

Radiation therapy can be used for prophylactic, palliative, or curative treatment. It can also be used as monotherapy or as an adjuvant with surgery, immunotherapy, and chemotherapy. The wide range of applications of radiotherapy has increased its adoption by physicians. The latest advancements in radiation therapy allow the delivery of a high amount of dose to the target area with minimum damage to nearby healthy tissues. This has increased the chances of localized tumor control and has improved cure rates, leading to an increase in demand for radiation therapy.

Key segments analyzed in this study are Low-Dose Rate (LDR) and High-Dose Rate (HDR) brachytherapy. HDR held the largest market share in terms of revenue in 2020. New product introductions and technological improvements are anticipated to bode well for overall market growth over the forecast period.

Prostate cancer held the dominant market share in 2020 due to the promising applications of brachytherapy in cancer treatment. On the other hand, breast cancer brachytherapy treatment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR over the forecast period due to increasing prevalence globally.

Recent advances in imaging technology have made this therapy more effective. In HDR brachytherapy, patients receive five weeks of external beam radiation therapy, followed by one to three sessions. In the treatment of prostate cancer, it allows safe escalation of the dosage to the tumor, while minimizing the dosage to surrounding healthy organs. 

North America held the largest market share in 2020. Brachytherapy is widely used in North America due to the advantages it offers over traditional methods as it is comparatively safer and efficient cancer treatment. According to the American Cancer Society, in 2018, more than 2 million new cancer cases will be diagnosed in the U.S. The healthcare reforms in the U.S. have improved access and coverage for the population and they aim at increasing the efficiency of the health care system.

In Canada, Health Canada ensures the safety of medical devices and it verifies the specifications of medical devices mentioned by manufacturers. Health Canada has established the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) to ensure patient safety. While the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) ensures that the radiation received by the patients is under the supervision of qualified medical practitioners.
