The radiotherapy market is expected to reach USD 7,544.8 Million by 2020 from USD 5,585.0 Million in 2015, at a CAGR of 6.2%. Radiotherapy refers to therapeutic procedures using high-energy electromagnetic waves or radioactive particulates to thwart abnormal cell growths and repair different physiological abnormalities within the human body. Radiotherapy is used in a wide range of applications for the treatment of prostate cancer, gynecological cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, and penile cancer, among others.

The major drivers for the market include the technological advancements in radiotherapy products, increasing incidence of cancer cases across the globe, rise in number of geriatric population, increasing symposiums driving investments in radiotherapy, and growing adoption of radiotherapy devices and procedures.

In this report, the global market is broadly segmented into external beam radiotherapy, internal beam radiotherapy/brachytherapy, and systemic radiation therapy. By product, the external beam radiotherapy is further classified into compact advanced radiotherapy devices (Cyberknife, Gammaknife, and Tomotherapy), proton therapy systems (cyclotrons and synchrotrons), and electron emitting high energy linear accelerators. The internal radiotherapy market, by product is further segmented into seeds, applicators & afterloaders, and electronic brachytherapy.

The technologies for this market include external beam radiotherapy (intensity-modulated radiation therapy, image-guided radiotherapy, tomotherapy, stereotactic technology, 3D conformal radiotherapy, proton beam therapy, and volumetric modulated arc therapy), internal beam radiotherapy (high dose rate and low dose rate), and systemic radiation therapy. Based on application, the external beam radiotherapy market is segmented into prostate cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, head & neck cancer, and colorectal cancer. The internal radiotherapy, by applications is further divided into prostate cancer, gynaecological cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, and penile cancer.

Based on region, the radiotherapy market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW).

The major players in the global radiotherapy market are Varian Medical Systems, Inc. (U.S.), Elekta AB (Sweden), Accuray Incorporated (U.S.), Ion Beam Applications SA (Belgium), C. R. Bard, Inc. (U.S.), IsoRay Medical, Inc. (U.S.), Nordion, Inc. (Canada), RaySearch Laboratories AB (Sweden), Mevion Medical Systems, Inc. (U.S.), and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (Japan).

The radiotherapy market is expected to reach USD 7,544.8 Million by 2020 from USD 5,585.0 Million in 2015, at a CAGR of 6.2% between 2015 and 2020. A strong trend of increasing incidence of cancer cases across the globe majorly drives the growth of the market. Other growth factors include technological advancements in radiotherapy products, increasing symposiums driving investments in radiotherapy, rise in number of geriatric population and growing adoption of radiotherapy devices and procedures.

However, lack of adequate infrastructure & healthcare expenditure, shortage of trained personnel, and unfavourable healthcare reforms in the U.S. are some of the key factors restraining the growth of this market. In addition to this, challenges associated with difficulty in visualizing tumours and affordability & accessibility of treatment also limits the growth of the radiotherapy market.

This report broadly segments the global market into external beam radiotherapy, internal radiotherapy/brachytherapy, and systemic radiation therapy. In 2015, the external beam radiotherapy segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global market. By product, the external beam radiotherapy is further classified into compact advanced radiotherapy devices (Cyberknife, Gammaknife, and Tomotherapy), proton therapy systems (cyclotrons and synchrotrons), and electron emitting high energy linear accelerators. The internal radiotherapy market, by product is further segmented into seeds, applicators & afterloaders, and electronic brachytherapy.

On the basis of technology, the global market is segmented into external beam radiotherapy (intensity-modulated radiation therapy, image-guided radiotherapy, tomotherapy, stereotactic technology, 3D conformal radiotherapy, proton beam therapy, and volumetric modulated arc therapy), internal beam radiotherapy (high dose rate and low dose rate), and systemic radiation therapy. In 2015, the image-guided radiotherapy technology is expected to account for the largest share of the global market, by technology.

Based on application, the external beam radiotherapy market is segmented into prostate cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, head & neck cancer, colorectal cancer, and others (spine cancer and brain cancer). The internal radiotherapy, by applications is further divided into prostate cancer, gynaecological cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, penile cancer, and others (lung cancer and head & neck cancer). In 2015, the prostate cancer application segment is expected to account for the largest share in both external beam radiotherapy market as well as internal radiotherapy market, by application.
