April 2021 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Brachytherapy Market Growth & Trends

The global brachytherapy market size is expected to reach USD 1.4 billion by 2028, according to a new study by Grand View Research Inc. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2021 to 2028. 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 radiotherapy 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.
