Radio Pharmaceutical Market Share, Trends, Leading Players Analysis and Forecast to 2022

“Radio Pharmaceutical Market”
Global Radio pharmaceutical Information, by types (Diagnostic and Therapeutic Radio pharmaceuticals) by application (cardiology, thyroid, oncology, neurology, others) by end users (hospitals, research centers, clinics)- Forecast to 2022

Radiopharmaceutical Global Market – Synopsis & Scenario

The conventional chemotherapy methods being replaced by more convenient therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals for oncology and cancer treatment may open new avenues in the radiopharmaceuticals market. Additionally, radiopharmaceuticals not only help physicians during diagnosis, but also work as a convenient and safer alternative for patients as compared to X-Rays and other external radiation imaging devices.


The overall impact of recent trends and changes in health care economics and operational viability of hospitals will result in nuclear medicine practitioners looking to the centralized radio pharmacies to meet a larger portion of their radiopharmaceutical needs, as well as to value added services, such as education and research and development.


Radiopharmaceutical Global Market –  Key Players

A number of producers and suppliers have developed capacities for radiopharmaceuticals production and its distribution (transport). Operating on international or regional level they are manufacturing products regularly to meet the demands. The assured availability of radiopharmaceuticals has greatly contributed to the growth of nuclear medicine practices in various countries, in addition to ensuring price stability of radiopharmaceuticals imported from large manufacturers. Production and distribution of radiopharmaceuticals has also helped to reduce the number of radioactive consignments that need to be transported across international borders.

Radiopharmaceutical Global Market –  Overview

Radiopharmaceuticals or Nuclear medicines are medicinal formulations containing radioisotopes which are safe for administration in humans for diagnosis or for therapy. These organic molecules carry the radioisotopes to tissues, specific organs and cells as the properties of radioisotopes are specific. Among the several applications of radioisotopes, medical applications were considered to be of the highest priority.


Radiopharmaceuticals are used in diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Radiopharmaceuticals can provide useful information about the function and molecular biology of cancer by measuring several of the causal factors.  In future, specific roles of radiopharmaceuticals for diagnosis in oncology may include the lymphatic system, development of new blood vessels and monitoring gene therapy.


According to a recent study report published by the Market Research Future, The global market for Radiopharmaceutical is estimated to grow tremendously by 2022, registering a decent rate of CAGR during the forecast period 2017 – 2022.


Radiopharmaceuticals market Growth is augmented by the increasing importance of radiotracers in the treatment of cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, with the emergence of developed methods for employing radioisotopes to impede the maturation of malignant tumors, cells, and tissues by the research institutes the use of radiopharmaceuticals in cancer medications has surged. However, the factors such as the brief life of radiopharmaceuticals, supply shortages, logistical difficulties, and limited number of trained medical personnel without specified guidelines available for their use in commercial-scale drug production may hamper the growth of the global market of Radiopharmaceuticals, states the MRFR Research Analyst while sharing the market insights and commenting upon this deep diving study report, presented through more than 100 market data tables and figures, widely spread over 80 pages.
