Summary
Population and human life expectancy are growing globally, spurring more chronic conditions and lifethreatening diseases.Obesity, a sedentary lifestyle and a lack of physical activity have further worsened the situation, leading to the increased importance of medical interventions and treatments.

Despite incredible advancements in the field of medicine in the last few decades, an unmet need remains for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of aggressive ailments such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases and central nervous system disorders.

Since the discovery of radioactivity, it has been recognized that radiation can play a role in the treatment of various diseases.Radiopharmaceuticals are a type of radioactive drug that is internally administered and intended for use in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.

Radiopharmaceuticals are now a crucial part of the healthcare industry, as they can identify various disease processes much earlier than other diagnostic tests.Applications of radiopharmaceuticals are growing significantly in the fields of cardiology, neurology, oncology and other medical specialties such as endocrinology, gastroenterology and nephrology, for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.

Radiopharmaceuticals have also become an inevitable part of personalized medicine.Diagnostic applications account for morethan an REDACTED share of the global radiopharmaceutical market, and therapeutic applications constitutethe smaller part of the market.

The market for therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals is expected to grow atsteep rate in the coming years, due to growing applications and increased demand.

Growing acceptance and utilization of nuclear medicine scans (i.e., SPECT and PET) and better availability of radiopharmaceuticals due to an increasing number of cyclotrons have significantly contributed to growth in the radiopharmaceutical industry. Innovative technological equipment leading to early and accurate diagnoses, increased awareness of radiopharmaceuticals among physicians and patients and new regulatory approvals of radiopharmaceuticals are other major driving forces for the global radiopharmaceutical market. Furthermore, increasing incidences of different types of cancers across the globe are considered a major driver behind the growth of radiopharmaceuticals and therapeutics. According to Our World in Data, approximately 19 million people had cancer in 1990; that has increased more than two-fold as of 2016, reaching 42 million worldwide. In addition, breast cancer
has been identified as the leading type of cancer, as eight million people had breast cancer in 2016. In the same year, 6.3 million, 5.7 million and 2.8 million people had colon and rectum cancer, prostate cancer and tracheal, bronchus and lung cancer, respectively. Hence, the increasing incidences of various cancers drives the need for radiopharmaceuticals and therapeutics, considering diagnostic and therapeutic areas.

The global radiopharmaceutical and therapeutics market is projected to rise at a CAGR of REDACTED during the forecast period of 2018 through 2023. In 2023, total revenues are expected to reach more than REDACTED, an increase of REDACTED from the REDACTED in revenue in 2017.
