Infoholic Research LLP, a global market research and consulting organization, has published a study titled “Global Radiation Oncology Market – Drivers, Restraints, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts: 2018–2024” (January 2018).
According to Infoholic Research, the radiation oncology market is growing steadily due to increasing incidences of cancer globally, increasing elderly population, technological advancements, and increasing adoption of non-invasive procedures in emerging countries. The high cost of instrument and therapy, side effects, and lack of trained technicians in developing countries are few of the factors hampering the market growth. Radiation oncology 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 future due to rising cancer cases resulting from unhealthy diet 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 2 decades.
