  • For instance, in March 2022, Novartis announced that the US Food and Drug Administration has approved Pluvicto for the treatment of patients with a certain type of advanced cancer called a prostate-specific membrane. The approval of Pluvicto can significantly improve the survival rates for people with limited treatment options.

Moreover, the growing implementation and development of pencil beam scanning across the world as a more precise form of proton therapy delivers the proton beam in a very narrow pencil-like shape while allowing for highly precise dose delivery. It has gained immense traction as a standard feature in many modern proton therapy facilities worldwide and has led to improved tumor targeting and reduced side effects as well.

However, the high initial cost associated with setting up a hadron therapy facility, including the equipment and infrastructure and limited availability of hadron therapy facilities as compared to traditional or conventional radiation therapy centers, are among the factors projected to hinder growth of the market.

By Type Analysis

Alpha particle beam segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022

The alpha particle beam segment accounted for the largest share. The growth of the segment market is highly accelerated by growing awareness among patients as well as healthcare providers about the potential benefits of targeted alpha therapy, along with the continuous rise in the number of patients with cardiac and cancer ailments. For instance, as per a report by the American Heart Association, coronary heart diseases were the leading cause of death, with approximately 41.2% of total deaths in the United States, followed by stroke and other CVDs with 17.3% and 16.8%, respectively.

The proton beam segment is expected to grow at a substantial growth rate during the projected period, mainly due to its greater effectiveness in treating various types of cancer, mainly for those that are located in sensitive or hard-to-reach areas, and its ability to spare health issue, resulting in adoption as a highly preferred choice for many patients and physicians. Besides this, collaborations between healthcare institutions and pharmaceutical companies lead to more research, development, and access to this treatment modality.

By Application Analysis

Pediatric cancer segment held the significant market share in 2022

The pediatric cancer segment held the majority market share in terms of revenue in 2022 and is majorly driven by rising prevalence or incidences of pediatric cancer, leading to an increased need for less toxic and effective treatment options along with the growing research and clinical trials mainly focused on the use of hadron therapy for pediatric cancer. Apart from this, rising support from governments, healthcare organizations, and research institutions towards the development and expansion of advanced hadron treatment facilities has also been pushing the segment market growth over the years.  

By End User Analysis

Hospitals segment led the industry with substantial share in 2022

The hospital's segment led the industry market with a substantial share both in terms of revenue and volume in 2022. It will also exhibit the highest growth during the projected period due to the robust presence of innovative and advanced treatment techniques and facilities, including high-tech equipment in the hospitals, and increased investments by both private and government organizations toward the development and expansion of hospital infrastructure.

In addition, hospitals all over the world are heavily investing in cutting-edge technology, including hardon therapy facilities, to remain competitive and offer comprehensive cancer care, which further allows them to stay ahead of their competitors and attract a wider patient base from all over the world.
