Radiotherapy is a type of treatment procedure that is mainly used for the treatment of cancer disease by the usage of X-rays along with similar forms of radiation technology. In radiotherapy treatment, high-energy-based radiation rays are often used to damage cancer cells and stop them from growing and dividing. Various types of software such as treatment planning software, dosage planning software, patient positioning software, image guiding software, and systemic radiotherapy among others are used in radiotherapy treatment planning. The treatment software program is used to calculate the dose of radiation which will be delivered to the patient's tumor and the surrounding normal tissue.
Radiotherapy treatment has numerous types of benefits to aim accurately and directly locate cancer wherever it might be in the body. The method and procedure of radiotherapy have been advanced in terms of launching new treatment planning software and advanced features-based therapy modalities which require highly skilled and certified professionals to easily operate these products and software.
Global Radiotherapy Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail below:
Growing Prevalence of Cancer Disease
The global incidence of cancer continues to rise due to factors such as aging populations, lifestyle changes, environmental factors, and increased cancer awareness and screening. The demand for effective treatment options such as radiotherapy grows as more individuals are diagnosed with cancer. Radiotherapy can be used as a primary treatment for cancer, especially in cases where surgery is not feasible or as effective. It can also be used in conjunction with surgery, chemotherapy, or immunotherapy to enhance treatment outcomes. The versatility of radiotherapy makes it an essential tool in the comprehensive cancer treatment arsenal.
Cancer disease has a major impact globally. Statistics on cancer describe that large groups of people have cancer across the world. Statistics show things that many people died from cancer each year. The treatment of radiotherapy can cure cancer symptoms. Radiation therapy uses high-energy particles or waves to kill the symptoms of cancer. Several people who are currently living with cancer require radiotherapy for cancer treatment. For this reason, the growing prevalence of cancer disease is acting as a driver for increasing the demand for the market.
Novel Technology in Radiotherapy for Cancer Treatment
During the past several years, cancer radiotherapy has been largely driven by technological development. The technological development in radiotherapy is mainly focused on improving therapy procedures and launching new products which have advanced features that help in the treatment of cancer patients. This special issue aims at novel technological developments and has large potential in improving patient safety and treatment outcome in the radiotherapy management of cancers worldwide.
The modern and advanced technology-based radiotherapy procedure comprises the use of three-dimensional (3D) imaging technology, high-energy x-ray machines, and computerized treatment planning, which enhances the chances for more precise treatment possible. The increasing number of patients who successfully use radiation therapy due to technological advancement in radiotherapy and novel technology in radiotherapy for cancer treatment is expected to drive market growth.
Increasing Healthcare Expenditure for Cancer Treatment
The government is continuously engaged in the activity of improving healthcare facilities to provide better health facilities and treatment to the patients such as improving cancer treatment procedures and increasing the number of radiotherapy treatment providers, among others. Growing healthcare expenditure is an opportunity for the market, because if investment in healthcare increases more people are getting aware of cancer disease and undergo advanced technology-based cancer treatment.
Continuously increasing healthcare expenditure help the end user to install the latest technology-based radiotherapy systems to improve efficiency, accuracy, and number of successful radiotherapy cancer treatments.
- Governments spend an average of 51% of a country’s health spending, and more than 35% of health spending comes from out-of-pocket expenses. An increase in healthcare expenditure also impacts the increasing implementation of advanced radiotherapy products and better treatment for cancer patients, for this reason, increasing healthcare expenditure for cancer treatment is acting as an opportunity for growing the demand for the market
Hence, the increasing healthcare expenditure for cancer treatment is expected to create an opportunity for market growth.
Restraint / Challenge
Lack of Skilled and Certified Professionals
Radiotherapy is a type of complex procedure, operated by highly advanced radiotherapy products which deliver radiation explorer to a targeted point of the patient body to destroy the cancer cells. The radiotherapy procedure requires highly skilled and certified professionals as in this procedure, healthcare professionals have to decide the dosages of radiation delivered to the patient's body with the help of treatment planning software. Healthcare professionals need to be aware of how to handle these software and therapy modalities. The requirement for skilled and certified professionals is a big restraint for the market. The demand for cancer treatment is increasing due to continuously increasing cases of cancer disease across the world but a lack of skilled and certified professionals hampering the growth of the market.
- Many regions, especially in rural or underserved areas, may lack an adequate number of radiation oncologists, medical physicists, radiation therapists, and dosimetrists. This shortage can lead to longer waiting times for patients seeking radiotherapy treatment, delaying their access to care
The requirement for trained staff is a big issue for the radiotherapy market, due to which the lack of skilled and certified professionals, end users are not able to install advanced products of radiotherapy procedures, the reason, lack of skilled and certified professionals are expected to restrain market growth.
