The Global Radiotherapy Market Size is expected to reach USD 13.72 Billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period 2022 to 2032.


Market Overview

Radiotherapy, also known as radiation therapy, is a crucial and widely used medical treatment for various cancers and certain non-cancerous conditions. It employs high-energy X-rays or other types of radiation to target and destroy cancer cells, impairing their ability to grow and divide. This non-invasive therapy can be administered externally, known as external beam radiotherapy, or internally by implanting radioactive sources directly into or near the tumor, referred to as brachytherapy. The primary goal of radiotherapy is to eradicate cancer cells while minimizing damage to healthy surrounding tissues. It is often used alone or in combination with other treatment modalities like surgery and chemotherapy, enhancing the chances of successful cancer management and providing relief from cancer-related symptoms.

Driving Factors

The radiotherapy market is influenced by several drivers that shape its growth and demand, due to the increasing incidence of cancer worldwide is a significant driver. With the rising prevalence of various cancer types, including breast, lung, prostate, and colorectal cancers, there is a growing need for effective treatment options like radiotherapy. The advancements in technology and treatment techniques play a crucial role. Innovations in radiation delivery systems, such as intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), and proton therapy, have enhanced treatment precision, minimizing damage to healthy tissues and improving patient outcomes. Moreover, the aging global population contributes to the expansion of the radiotherapy market, as cancer incidence rises with age. Increasing awareness and early detection initiatives have led to a higher number of cancer diagnoses, driving the demand for radiotherapy.


Additionally, supportive government policies and funding for cancer research and treatment facilities propel market growth, encouraging investments in radiotherapy infrastructure. Furthermore, the adoption of combination therapies, where radiotherapy is used alongside chemotherapy or immunotherapy, drives market expansion. These combined approaches offer improved therapeutic benefits and contribute to better patient survival rates. Overall, the rising demand for non-invasive treatments and the improving accessibility of radiotherapy services in emerging economies further boost market growth.


Restraining Factors

Radiotherapy market is the potential side effects and complications associated with radiation treatment. While radiotherapy is effective in targeting cancer cells, it can also cause damage to nearby healthy tissues, leading to adverse reactions and long-term complications for some patients. Additionally, the high cost of advanced radiotherapy technologies and treatments can be a restraint for patients with limited financial resources or in regions with inadequate healthcare infrastructure. Moreover, the shortage of skilled radiation oncologists and trained healthcare professionals may hinder the widespread adoption of radiotherapy, limiting its reach and utilization in certain areas.


Market Segmentation

  • In 2022, the cyber knife segment accounted for around 43.5% market share

On the basis of the technology, the global radiotherapy market is segmented into external beam radiotherapy, convnetial cobalt-60 teletherapy units, particle therapy systems, internal beam radiotherapy/brachytherapy, and systemic radiotherapy. The cyber knife subsegment of stereotactic external beam radiotherapy, utilizing electron/cobalt-60 linear accelerators, holds the largest market share due to its precise and non-invasive treatment capabilities. The cyber knife system delivers highly focused radiation to tumors, sparing surrounding healthy tissues, and effectively treating complex tumors in various body areas. Its advanced robotic technology allows for accurate tumor tracking and real-time adjustments during treatment, enhancing therapeutic outcomes. With an increasing demand for sophisticated and targeted radiotherapy options, the cyber knife subsegment has emerged as a dominant player in the market.


  • The prostate cancer sub-segment of internal beam radiotherapy held the largest market with more than 45.3% revenue share in 2022

Based on the application, the global radiotherapy market is segmented into external beam and internal beam. The prostate cancer sub-segment of internal beam radiotherapy commands the largest market share due to the high prevalence of prostate cancer and the efficacy of this treatment approach. Internal beam radiotherapy, also known as brachytherapy, involves placing radioactive sources directly into the prostate tumor, delivering precise and concentrated radiation. This targeted therapy enables effective cancer control while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissues, making it a preferred choice for prostate cancer treatment.


  • The hospitals segment is expected to continue grow at a higher CAGR of around 7.5% during the forecast period

Based on the end-use, the global radiotherapy market is segmented into hospitals and independent radiotherapy centers. The hospitals segment is expected to experience higher growth during the forecast period due to increasing cancer cases and the rising demand for radiotherapy services in hospital settings. Hospitals offer comprehensive cancer care, including radiotherapy treatment, making them a crucial destination for cancer patients. Moreover, ongoing advancements in radiotherapy technologies and equipment in hospitals further boost their appeal as a reliable and efficient choice for cancer treatment, leading to continued growth in this segment.


  • The particle therapy sub-segment of external beam radiotherapy held the largest market with more than 32.6% revenue share in 2022

Based on the procedure, the global radiotherapy market is segmented into external beam radiotherapy, internal beam radiotherapy, systemic radiotherapy, intravenouos radiotherapy, oral radiotherapy, and instillation radiotherapy. The particle therapy sub-segment of external beam radiotherapy holds the largest market share due to its advanced and highly targeted treatment capabilities. Particle therapy, which includes proton therapy and carbon-ion therapy, uses charged particles to deliver radiation directly to cancer cells with exceptional precision. This results in reduced damage to healthy tissues compared to conventional radiotherapy. As the demand for more precise and effective cancer treatments rises, particle therapy has emerged as a prominent and sought-after option in the market.
