DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Brachytherapy Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global brachytherapy market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 3% during 2019-2024.
Brachytherapy, also known as internal radiation therapy, is a form of radiotherapy in which radiation is transported directly through a source implanted near or next to the cancerous tumor in the body. The source produces gamma rays that are focused on cancer cells and reduce the damage to surrounding healthy tissue. Brachytherapy is either administered in Low Dose Rate (LDR) or High Dose Rate (HDR) depending upon the severity of the disease and its damage. For LDR, small radioactive seeds are implanted permanently in or around the tumor, whereas, for HDR, radioactive sources are removed from the patient's body at the termination of each session and is used in the cases of high-risk cancers.
The rising prevalence of different types of cancer is one of the key factors driving the global market. Brachytherapy has been proven to be an extremely effective treatment option for cervical, skin and breast cancers, which is contributing significantly to its market growth. Furthermore, the availability of high-quality brachytherapy equipment that provides accurate and extremely localized doses of radiation to small tumors has enhanced the acceptance of the therapy amongst patients and medical professionals alike.
Technological advancements in oncology treatments and extensive research and development (R&D), such as trials for treating neovascular age-related macular degeneration, have also provided a significant boost to the market growth. In addition to this, growing medical tourism across the globe, along with increasing awareness about the advantages of brachytherapy and its cost-effectiveness and increasing cure rate as compared to surgery or external beam therapy (EBT), is also significantly driving the market.
