Research and Markets: Global Proton Therapy Outlook 2018

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/j9cvwc/global_proton) has announced the addition of the "Global Proton Therapy Outlook 2018" report to their offering.

Proton Therapy, the new kid on the block for cancer treatment, has garnered worldwide attention in the past few years. Due to its ability to deliver higher doses of radiation to the targeted areas without affecting the healthy tissues, it is being promulgated as the next big thing in the world of cancer treatment. In fact, the past five years have witnessed a surge in the number of proton therapy centers that have been established globally.

According to our report, Global Proton Therapy Outlook 2018, 16 such centers have been established across Italy, France, Japan, Germany, China and UK in the past 5 years. Even though many centers have been established and the future is set to witness the inception of more, given the capacity of the facilities, there exists a huge demand and supply gap.

Through our report, we have deduced this gap and the true demand for proton centers by 2018. The derivation has been performed with the help of a complex matrix that takes into account the contribution of various parameters such as cancer incidences, types of cancers for which proton therapy is recommended, affordability of individuals across various geographies, and total patient treatment capacity of existing centers and those that are expected to come up by 2018.
