Published Date : Apr 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Brachytherapy market size is expected to be worth around US$ 3.4 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Brachytherapy market size was valued at US$ 888.5 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 8.1% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

The growth of the market is largely attributable to the rising prevalence of cancer, technology advancements, and increasing investment in R&D by major players.

According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the global incidence of cancer is expected to rise to 24.6 million by 2030, from 19.3 million in 2020. This is expected to be a major factor driving the growth of the market. Additionally, technological advancements and favorable reimbursement scenarios, particularly in the developed countries, are expected to drive market growth.

However, the lack of access to technologically advanced systems particularly in developing nations, and the lack of skilled radiotherapy professionals are expected to restraint market growth. Around 70% of the cancer-related deaths occur in low-and-middle-income countries; however, only 3-4% of the needs of the population in these countries are met. This represents significant opportunities for investment for the key market players.

New product launch is one of the key strategies adopted by the leading companies. For instance, in July 2018, IsoRay received FDA clearance for GammaTile Therapy for the treatment of recurrent brain neoplasms. The launch of such technologically advanced products is further expected to propel growth.

Report Highlights

The seeds segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 30.5% in 2020. Seeds are small radioactive materials that are placed inside the body. These seeds can be placed in the body permanently or temporarily depending on the type of cancer.

The electronic brachytherapy segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. This technique involves the usage of miniaturized x-ray sources as opposed to radionuclides. The various advantages of electronic brachytherapy such as low dose radiation to the organ at risk, minimal exposure of treating staff to radiation, and no radioactive waste are some of the major factors driving the adoption of this technique.

The prostate cancer segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 32.9% in 2020. Brachytherapy is an effective treatment option both as monotherapy and in combination with external beam radiation therapy in all patients with localized prostate cancer. The promising applications of brachytherapy in the treatment of prostate cancer are driving the segment.

The application segment is expected to witness a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period. The increasing usage of brachytherapy in Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation (APBI) is one of the major factors driving the growth of this segment. Additionally, the rising incidence of breast cancer is also expected to drive the growth of this segment.

The HDR brachytherapy segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 71.2% in 2020. The therapy is generally done as an outpatient procedure for the treatment of various types of cancers such as skin, cervical, prostate, head and neck, and breast cancer. Short procedure time, higher efficacy, and protection from radiation exposure are some of the factors contributing to the dominance of this segment. HDR afterloaders are gradually replacing LDR afterloaders worldwide, as most manufacturers no longer guarantee the maintenance of LDR systems.

LDR brachytherapy is primarily used for the treatment of prostate cancer. The introduction of new products such as GammaTile for the treatment of brain cancer is expected to drive the growth of this segment. In July 2018, IsoRay received FDA 510K clearance for this product, which uses Cesium-131 seeds which have a better adverse effect profile than other commonly used LDR isotopes.

North America dominated the brachytherapy market and held the largest revenue share of 45.7% in 2020. Brachytherapy is widely used in North America due to the advantages it offers over traditional methods as it is a comparatively safer and efficient cancer treatment. Europe accounted for a share of more than 25.0% in 2020. The usage of brachytherapy in the European region has been increasing over the last 5 years.

In Asia Pacific, the market is poised to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast. The region accounts for over 60% of the world population and half the global burden of cancer. The prevalence of cancer is rising pertaining to an unhealthy lifestyle. In addition, limited access to technologically advanced cancer treatments offers various opportunities for the market players.
