Radiotherapy is a treatment for cancer that uses radiation, usually X-rays, to treat illness. Radiotherapy is also sometimes used to treat benign tumors and other conditions, such as thyroid disease and some blood disorders. Radiotherapy is used alone or in combination with chemotherapy (chemoradiotherapy) to treat cancer. Radiotherapy is effective in controlling symptoms of cancer. Radiotherapy may be used before surgery or after surgery to destroy small tumor cells that may be left. Radiotherapy can be external, internal or systemic.

Global radiotherapy market is primarily driven by growing incidences of cancer across the globe. Other major driving factors are increasing geriatric population and large government funding. However, lack of infrastructure and lack of skilled personnel and training are the major restraints that may limit the growth of the market. Nonetheless, technological advancements in radiotherapy products coupled with a huge investment in radiotherapy across the globe are likely to disclose the new avenues for radiotherapy market in the near future.


The radiotherapy market is segmented on the basis of different products including external beam radiation therapy, internal radiation therapy (brachytherapy), and systemic radiation therapy. External beam radiation therapy is further sub-segmented into compact advanced radiotherapy systems (Cyberknife, Gamma knife, and Tomotherapy), proton therapy systems (Cyclotron and Synchrotron) and electron emitting high energy linear accelerators (Linac). Internal radiation therapy is further sub-classified into seeds, applicators & after leaders and electronic brachytherapy. External beam radiation therapy holds a maximum share of global radiotherapy market.

Based on technology radiotherapy market is classified into external beam radiation therapy (Image-Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT), Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT), Stereotactic Technology, Proton Beam Therapy, Tomotherapy, 3D Conformal Radiotherapy (3D CRT) and Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT)), internal radiation therapy (Low Dose Rate and High Dose Rate), and systemic radiation therapy.

Based on applications external beam radiation therapy segment is classified into prostate cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, head & neck cancer, colorectal cancer and other. Internal radiation therapy is classified into prostate cancer, gynecological cancer, breast cancer, penile cancer and other.

North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa are key regional segments of global Radiotherapy market. North America is anticipated to remain the leading region over the forecast period followed by Europe. Demand for radiotherapy was highest in North America especially in the U.S. Asia Pacific is expected to be the moderate growing region in radiotherapy market during the forecast period. Moreover, the Middle East and Africa and Latin America are also expected to show moderate growth for this market in the years to come.

Some of the key players in radiotherapy market include Elekta AB, Varian Medical Systems, Accuray Incorporated, IBA Worldwide, IsoRay Medical, Inc., Nordion, Inc., Raysearch Laboratories, Mevion Medical Systems, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation and C. R. Bard, Inc. among others.
