Global Radiopharmaceuticals Market Overview:

Radiopharmaceuticals are pharmaceutical formulations that include radioactive isotopes used in diagnosis and therapeutics. They include a radioactive agent used to treat cancer, as well as heart and neurological conditions. Nowadays, medical practitioners are using more convenient therapeutic radiopharmaceutical methods in place of traditional chemotherapy for oncology and cancer treatment, which is unlocking new avenues in the radiopharmaceuticals market. Moreover, it helps physicians during diagnosis and works as a suitable and safer substitute for patients compared to X-Rays and other external radiation imaging devices.

 

Global Radiopharmaceuticals Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

High demand for early diagnosis in the event of cancer and cardiovascular chronic diseases

High demand for single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) and Positron emission tomography (PET) scans to diagnose diseases like cancer and other chronic disorders are contributing to the Radiopharmaceuticals Market. A sharp rise in cancer incidence and increased use of medical imaging as a diagnostics procedure are driving the growth of the market. Moreover, patients nowadays are becoming more aware of the accuracy of their diagnoses, which in turn is driving the market growth. Additionally, rising molecular imaging applications are a major contributor to the global radiopharmaceuticals market's growth.

 

Convenience of treatment

Owing to the ease of the procedure, which requires minimally invasive procedures, patients nowadays prefer radiopharmaceuticals over chemotherapy. The increasing number of cardiac patients and the adoption of clear imaging techniques, with the help of investigative equipment such as PET and SPECT, are the factors that are driving the global radiopharmaceuticals industry. For oncology and cancer therapy, these are more convenient and suitable therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals. It not only assists doctors in diagnosis but is also a more convenient and safer choice for patients as compared to X-Rays and other external imaging instruments.

 

Restraints

High cost and Regulatory requirements

Some of the factors restricting the market's growth are supply shortages, logistical difficulties, and a lack of qualified clinical professionals. Furthermore, the high cost of developing radiopharmaceuticals, as well as strict regulatory requirements, restrict the market's growth. Radiopharmaceuticals face additional scrutiny and undergo unique regulatory and sanction pathways. Sometimes, extensive testing may also put investigators under a lot of financial strain. Furthermore, reimbursement causes issues for the manufacturer, and high capital investment hampers the market growth.

 

Impact of COVID-19 in the industry

Almost every sector has been impacted by the raging coronavirus-induced pandemic. This has also had a negative effect on the development, production, and supply of nuclear medicine, as well as the growth of the radiopharmaceuticals industry. The supply chain for radiopharmaceuticals and diagnostic kits has also been disrupted as a result of the pandemic. Moreover, due to suppliers’ cost, and transportation issues, nuclear medicine manufacturers have been facing problems in obtaining cold kits used for simplifying radiopharmaceutical production.
