The global radiotherapy devices market is anticipated to top US$ 10 Bn by 2031, progressing at a robust CAGR of 7% over the decade.
Radiotherapy devices are a wide range of medical devices used in radiation therapy. These devices can produce an accurate amount of high-energy radiation, which is further delivered on targeted areas of a patient’s body. General characteristics of a radiotherapy device include emission of electrons, photons, and other fast-moving subatomic particles, and the use of X-ray tubes to build contact between the device and the targeted area in a patient’s body.
Medical professionals and cancer patients, both, are driving the adoption of radiotherapy devices due to their advantage in lowering the hospital stay of patients and controlling the growth of cancerous tumors. As radiotherapy continues to gain traction for being the most coveted treatment of a wide range of cancers, the global market for radiotherapy devices continues to expand exponentially.
