Market Report Description

The Global Proton Therapy Market size is expected to reach $963.6 million by 2028, rising at a market growth of 12.5% CAGR during the forecast period.

Proton radiation devices are used in proton therapy, sometimes referred to as proton radiotherapy and proton beam therapy. Utilizing proton treatment, cancer cells are destroyed. In proton therapy, a beam of protons is directed towards the tumors using proton accelerators. Protons are ionized protons that damage cells' DNA and cause cell death by interfering with it.

Proton Therapy Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

Equipment for proton therapy is expensive and takes up a lot of space. It includes electro-magnets, accelerators, gantries, nozzles, and patient rooms. High-energy beams are used in proton treatment, also known as proton radiation, to treat malignancies. A precise dose of high-energy radiation is kept inside the target tumor using this procedure.

The majority of the time, it is used in the treatment of malignant growth therapy. X-beam radiation is dissipated by protons, ensuring less damage to the surrounding healthy tissues. Radiation therapy called proton therapy is most frequently used to treat cancer. When compared to conventional radiation therapy, it offers important advantages in terms of effectiveness and limited side effects.

It is a simple, safe procedure that maintains patients' happiness and enables them to quickly resume routine exercises. It enables medical professionals to administer full or greater therapy doses that completely eradicate the primary tumor spot without seriously harming surrounding healthy tissue or organs.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the medical equipment sector globally, especially particle treatment devices. The administration of particle treatment procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic varies greatly from location to region. The temporary deferral of several elective surgeries is anticipated to affect the market for proton therapy as governments and authorities work to guarantee that resources are available for COVID-19 patients. It is predicted to increase the worldwide cancer burden. The delay in diagnosis and treatment procedures is to blame for this.

Market Growth Factors

Benefits of proton therapy compared to particle therapy

Proton treatment has seen considerable technological breakthroughs in recent years. These developments have aided manufacturers in creating less invasive, more effective, and regulated proton treatment systems that also cause less radiation exposure to healthy tissues and have fewer adverse effects. More precisely targets cancer cells and tumors. A less amount of energy is produced, and there is a smaller exit dose, lowering the possibility of harm to the nearby healthy tissues and organs.

Rising healthcare spending in developing nations

The increasing number and size of investments made in the healthcare sector by governments of various nations is one of the key drivers fuelling the market's expansion. Due to their rapid economic growth and rising healthcare costs, it is projected that the availability of high-quality healthcare would increase in several developing countries. This is regarded as a promising sign of growth for the proton therapy sector. The rising incidence of cancer in these countries has increased the need for various radiation therapies and equipment.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Tumors are difficult to see during proton treatment operations

The inability to distinguish tumors from healthy normal tissue and to visualize them during proton treatment procedures is one of the biggest problems encountered. It becomes extremely challenging to only radiate the malignant protrusion without damaging the surrounding tissues, though, because tumors can change their structure regularly. Radiologists place a safety margin around the tumor to reduce this. Additionally, it becomes imperative to restrict the radiation dose range to reduce the harm to the adjacent healthy tissue, which raises the number of treatment cycles required to destroy tumorous cells.

Proton Therapy Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2021

Product Type Outlook

Based on the Product Type, the Proton Therapy Market is segmented into Accelerator, Beam Transport systems, Beam Delivery systems, Nozzle and Image Viewers, and Patient Positioning System. The accelerator segment garnered the largest revenue share in the proton therapy market in 2021. Proton therapy market growth is further aided by the rising incidence of cancer, cost advantages over imported radioactive tracers, and accessibility of cutting-edge diagnostic tools. Starting with a hydrogen atom, the accelerator splits it apart, separates the proton from the electron, and then accelerates the isolated proton to carry as much energy as is safe.

Indication Outlook

On the basis of Indication, the Proton Therapy Market is divided into Head and Neck Cancer, CNS Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Breast Cancer, and Others. The head and neck cancer segment witnessed a significant revenue share in the proton therapy market in 2021. Since proton particles do not generate exit dosage, normal tissues located far from the tumor can be spared during proton therapy. Due to the anatomical restrictions present in almost all cancers in the head and neck region, this is very helpful for these tumors.

End User Outlook

By End-User, the Proton Therapy Market is divided into Hospitals, Proton Therapy Centers, and Others. The hospital segment procured the highest revenue share in the proton therapy market in 2021. Due to the rise in the prevalence of cancer, improvements in the hospital infrastructure, the use of high-tech equipment, and increased self-awareness about diseases, it is anticipated that this trend will continue during the projected period.
