Brachytherapy Market Growth Drivers, and Opportunities

The increasing advancements in brachytherapy, the rising prevalence of cancer cases and increasing awareness about cancer drive the global market growth.

The increasing advancements in brachytherapy are boosting the global brachytherapy market growth during the forecast period.

The increasing advancements in brachytherapy are fueling the global brachytherapy market growth during the forecast period. For instance, the American Brachytherapy Society (ABS), Brachy Summit 2020, held an exhibition for brachytherapy in which different exhibitors exhibited their advanced developments in brachytherapy such as the Boston Scientific has developed SpaceOAR hydrogel, which provides over 1 cm of space between the prostate and rectum to decrease rectal toxicity and minimize changes in quality of life (QOL) following prostate radiotherapy. Furthermore, C4 Imaging LLC developed Sirius™ MRI Marker, an innovative medical device that allows clinicians to personalize patient treatment through proper MRI-guided procedures. Moreover, Concure Oncology developed Breast Microseed Treatment® that allows the precise placement of tiny Palladium seeds to deliver a targeted, tumoricidal dose of radiation to the area at greatest risk for recurrence, sparing healthy tissue. Thus, from the above data, it is anticipated that the developments in brachytherapy will drive the global brachytherapy market growth during the forecast period.

The high cost and long-term side effects of brachytherapy will restrain the global market growth during the forecast period
However, the high cost and the long-term side effects of brachytherapy are restraining the global brachytherapy market growth during the forecast period. For instance, brachytherapy costs typically range between $900 to $8000. Furthermore, according to Cancer Research UK, brachytherapy for prostate cancer often leads to a few long-term side effects like passing urine more often and erectile dysfunction. It is to be held in mind that everyone is different, and the side effects vary from person to person. Thus, these factors will hamper the global brachytherapy market growth during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact

During the pandemic, the brachytherapy market was affected greatly since it was difficult to perform the radiation treatment, which led to reductions in overall brachytherapy treatment. While post-COVID, it came to attention that cancer patients are at higher risk of developing more severe cases of COVID-19 with increased mortality. Therefore, it is important to optimize patient and treatment selection so that for patients who will benefit from radiotherapy treatment and present mild symptoms, treatment shall be continued using hypo-fractionated schemes and proper protective measures. Thereby minimizing the impact on the current brachytherapy market.

Brachytherapy Market Segment Analysis

Prostate cancer is anticipated to hold a larger share of the global brachytherapy market throughout the forecast period (2022-2029).

Prostate cancer is expected to dominate the global brachytherapy market throughout the forecast period (2022-2029) because there are growing prostate cancer cases worldwide, and since brachytherapy has a high success rate is a commonly recommended treatment option for prostate cancer. According to the American College of Surgeons (ACS), healthcare professionals may recommend brachytherapy as a stand-alone treatment if you have very low- or low-risk prostate cancer or favorable intermediate-risk prostate cancer. Furthermore, a study found a 17-year prostate cancer-specific survival (PCSS) rate of 97 percent. Furthermore, according to the Global Cancer Observatory, over 1 414 259 were diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2020, and more than 375 304 died because of prostate cancer in 2020. Making it the second most commonly occurring cancer in men and the fourth most common cancer, as per the World Cancer Research Fund International. Therefore, from the mentioned data, it is estimated that prostate cancer will dominate the global brachytherapy market during the forecast period.
