Global Radiotherapy Positioning Devices Market Overview

Radiotherapy is one of the treatment methods for treating cancer. High energy x-ray or gamma-ray is used to kill the cancer cell. This treatment is given either once or a few times for each patient. Thus, radiotherapy treatment must be delivered accurately. To ensure treatment is given accurately, some accessory devices are needed following the parts of body that will be getting treatment. These accessory devices are used to determine the patient’s position during treatment, to prevent any movement and to make sure patient is comfortable using it. Each patient will use a definite set of accessory which differs according to the type of cancer and area of treatment. This accessory must be durable and can be used repeatedly by the patient until treatment completes. For some patient, customized accessory set is made especially for them. These accessory devices are known as positioning or immobilization devices used in radiotherapy.

Market Size & Forecast

Radiotherapy Positioning Devices Market is anticipated to record a significant CAGR over the forecast period. Many multi-national companies are concentrating towards new product advances in radiotherapy positioning devices to improve their product portfolio which is anticipated to support the global market growth. It is projected by World Health Organization, that by 2030, about 23.6 million new cases of cancer will exist across the world. Governmental guidelines from National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) and American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) are delivering help to healthcare professionals in the treatment and management of cancer patients. The U.S. Government in April 2016 allocated USD 5.2 Billion for the National Cancer Institute (NCI), for cancer research and training.

On the basis of regional platform, global Radiotherapy Positioning Devices market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa region. North-America holds the largest share in terms of revenue for radiotherapy positioning devices owing to the region’s innate nature of adopting technologies in their primitive stage. Moreover, greater focus on early diagnosis, screening, monitoring and clinical development associated with radiotherapy treatment by market players have affected the radiotherapy positioning devices market positively.

In Asia Pacific region significant economic development has led to an increase in healthcare availability, increase in number of multi-specialty clinics and hospitals, and rise in popularity of radiotherapy positioning devices among oncologists. Further preference of minimally invasive techniques and penetration of global players in Asia is expected to fuel demand for radiotherapy positioning devices market in the region.
