The global radiotherapy market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020.

Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use sectors. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Radiotherapy, also known as radiation therapy, is used to slow down the growth of cancer cells and shrink tumors. It destroys the genetic material of cancer cells using high-energy particles or waves, such as x-rays, gamma rays, electron beams, or protons. It can be combined with other cancer treatments, such as surgery, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy, to improve their effectiveness. At present, it is offered to patients depending on their cancer type, size and location of the tumor, medical history, and age and medical conditions. Radiotherapy Market Trends:
The rising prevalence of cancer on account of unhealthy dietary patterns, lack of physical activities, growing air pollution, and the increasing number of alcohol and tobacco consumption represents one of the key factors strengthening the growth of the market. Moreover, the risk of developing cancer rises dramatically with age as the tendency for cellular repair is less effective in older individuals. As a result, the rising geriatric population across the globe is acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, the development of effective, low-cost, and easy-to-use radiotherapy products is bolstering the growth of the market growth. In addition, modern radiotherapy techniques, such as three-dimensional (3D) conformal, intensity-modulated, and image-guided, deliver a lower dose of radiation to healthy tissues while a higher dose to the tumor. They also improve organ-at-risk (OAR) sparing and provide no physical sensation to patients. This is increasing their adoption in multiple applications and settings in chronic disease treatment, which, in turn, is catalyzing the demand for radiotherapy around the world. Furthermore, the market is projected to experience growth on account of the rising healthcare expenditure in both emerging and developed economies.
