Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Radiotheranostics Market size is expected to cross USD 44 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 14% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of radiotheranostics was over USD 8 Billion. One major factor driving market expansion is the growing trend of personalized medicines in the management of cancer. The idea of individualized medicine in cancer treatment has also been influenced by developments in diagnostics, treatment options, and our understanding of cancer biology. The most recent estimates, there has been an over 75,000 genetic testing kits and 300 tailored medications are available for use by patients with various chronic and infectious diseases, uncommon genetic diseases, and malignancies.

Additionally, there will probably be new market opportunities due to pharmaceutical companies' increased efforts to produce novel radiotheranostics with longer half-lives and improved treatment outcomes. For example, ITM reported in April 2022 that patient recruitment for their phase III study, COMPETE, with its primary candidate, targeted radionuclide therapy, ITM-11, had been successfully completed. Additionally, Pluvicto (Lu177), which Novartis announced was approved by the FDA in March 2022, can be used to treat adult patients with specific types of metastatic tumors.

Radiotheranostics Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • The Rising Incidence of Cancer- The rising incidence of cancer is driving up demand for radiotheranostics in the healthcare industry, which is driving market expansion. Offering diagnostic and therapeutic skills, enabling accurate cancer cell imaging, and facilitating targeted therapy which improves treatment outcomes and is another important growth-inducing factor are critical to the management of cancer. In 2020, there were projected to be 18.1 million cases of cancer worldwide. Men accounted for 9.3 million of these instances, while women made for 8.8 million. In addition, the capacity of radiopharmaceuticals to precisely identify cancer aids in the selection of the best course of treatment for specific patients, thereby propelling the market's expansion. Additionally, radio theranostics helps track the effectiveness of treatments and evaluates the course of diseases, which drives market expansion.
  • Numerous Innovations in Technology- Another important factor that promotes growth is the development of high-resolution imaging modalities like single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET), which offer detailed anatomical and functional information and enable accurate localization and characterization of cancerous lesions. The quality and specificity of imaging in radiotheranostics are also being further improved by the integration of sophisticated detectors, image reconstruction algorithms, and hybrid imaging systems, which is driving the market's growth. In addition, novel radiotracers with enhanced pharmacokinetic characteristics and target specificity are being developed, which will boost market growth by enabling better molecular target visualization as well as more precise disease staging and diagnosis. In addition, improvements in production methods and radiolabelling techniques resulted in increased accessibility and availability of a wide range of radiopharmaceuticals, which in turn drove market expansion.
  • Advantageous Policies of the Government- Adoption and advancement of radiotheranostics depend on supportive government policy. Furthermore, governments everywhere are seeing how much better patient care can be achieved using radiotheranostics, and they are putting supportive legislation in place to help it flourish. Additionally, the market is growing due to the creation of reimbursement frameworks for radiotheranostic treatments, which cover therapeutic interventions employing radiopharmaceuticals and diagnostic imaging. Patients will face fewer financial obstacles as a result, and radiotheranostics will be more widely used in therapeutic settings. Regulatory bodies have also expedited imaging equipment and the approval process.


  • High Cost of Implementation - Both patients and healthcare providers may face difficulties due to the high expense of radiopharmaceuticals and radiotheranostics procedures. To guarantee more adoption and market expansion, these technologies' affordability and cost-effectiveness must be addressed.
  • There can be regional differences in the accessibility and availability of radiotheranostics equipment and facilities. The broad implementation and application of radiotheranostics may be impeded by inadequate infrastructure and resources in specific regions.  
  • In certain situations, reimbursement policies and coverage for radiopharmaceuticals and radiotheranostics operations may be restricted. This may put patients and healthcare providers at a financial disadvantage, which will hinder the uptake and application of radiotheranostics.

Radiotheranostics Segmentation

Approach Outlook (Targeted Therapeutic, Targeted Diagnostic)

The targeted therapeutic segment in the radiotheranostics market is anticipated to hold largest revenue share of about 52% during the forecast period. Utilizing radiopharmaceuticals for targeted therapy is part of the targeted therapeutic approach in the radiotheranostics sector. The market expansion is influenced by the fact that these radiopharmaceuticals are made to target and deliver radiation to certain disease targets or cancer cells within the body. Roughly 10 million deaths, or roughly one in six deaths, globally will be attributable to cancer in 2020. Additionally, by combining a therapeutic radioactive ingredient with a targeting molecule, like peptides or antibodies, radiopharmaceuticals can bind to tumor cells specifically and deliver a therapeutic dose of radiation to kill or stop the growth of cancer cells, which is what is driving the segment’s expansion in the market.

Radioisotopes (Iodine-131, Iodine-123, Gallium-68, Lutetium-177, 18F with Y-90)

The lutetium-177 segment is expected to hold 30% share of the global radiotheranostics market during the forecast period. The market's increasing LU-177 product availability and uptake is fuelling the Lutetium-177 segment's rise. Furthermore, compared to other therapeutic isotopes, Lu-177 has a longer half-life, allowing for a longer course of treatment and possibly better patient outcomes. For example, L-177 has a physical half-life of 6.7 days, according to Springer. Additionally, new product releases and recent product approvals have accelerated the segment's growth. For example, in December 2022, the European Commission approved Novartis's Pluvicto-targeted radioligand therapy for the treatment of prostate cancer.

Our in-depth analysis of the global radiotheranostics market includes the following segments:


  • Iodine-131
