DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Proton Therapy Market: Industry Analysis & Outlook (2016-2020)" report to their offering.
Proton Therapy is a type of radiation therapy that uses protons rather than X-rays to treat cancer. It is becoming popular today due to its clinical advantages. It is a painless, non-invasive treatment that allows physicians to deliver full or higher treatment dosages and destroy the main tumor site without causing harm to surrounding healthy tissue or organs. Proton therapy has advantage over other conventional therapies in the treatment of children which are at high risk of getting secondary tumors later in life from radiation exposure.
The competition in the proton therapy industry is becoming high because it is a relatively new therapy in comparison to others and is becoming successful. Doctors may use proton therapy alone, or they may combine it with standard radiation therapy, surgery, chemotherapy or immunotherapy. The companies are looking to expand their bases and increase their market share by marketing the clinical advantages of the therapy and make more people opt for it.
The demand for proton therapy market will be driven by increase in the incidences of cancer, rising ageing population, increasing healthcare expenditure and greater recognition of proton therapy. Some of the noteworthy trends and developments of this industry are next generation proton therapy tools, future developments and proton therapy research advancements. However, the expansion of proton therapy market is hindered because of being expensive than other treatment therapies, sensitivity in nature, legal regulations and high reimbursement rates.
