BANGALORE, India, April 23, 2018

Infoholic Research LLP, a global market research and consulting company, has published a study titled “Global Brachytherapy Market – Drivers, Restraints, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts: 2018-2024

According to Infoholic Research, the brachytherapy devices market is growing steadily due to factors such as growing cancer patient base, increasing technological advancements, and growing elderly population. The rising incidence of diseases along with increasing medical spending provides opportunities for manufacturing companies to come up with innovative technologies in the market. The high cost of instrument therapy, side effects, and lack of trained technicians in developing countries are few of the factors hampering the market growth.

IBRT is a type of radiation therapy in which a radioactive implant is placed inside the body, within or near the tumor site. It is a painless procedure, and depending on the treatment type and cancer, either permanent or temporary implant is placed. Various internal radiation therapy products include seeds, applicators, after loaders, and other accessories.

Brachytherapy products majorly find their application in prostate cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, head & neck cancer, brain cancer, and other cancer types. The demand for these products is expected to increase in the future due to rising cancer cases resulting from unhealthy food habits and changing lifestyle. According to the estimation of National Cancer Institute, in the US around 1.6 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed, and 595,690 people have died due to cancer in 2016. According to the study of World Health Organization, approximately 14 million new cancer cases were diagnosed and is expected to increase by about 70% over the next two decades.
