Radiopharmaceuticals Market

Global Demand for Radiopharmaceuticals Surges with Rising Incidences of Cancer

Presence of radiopharmaceuticals in cancer medications has increased as research institutes have

derived ways in which radioisotopes can impede the maturation of malignant tumour, cells and


Increasing significance of radiotracers in therapeutic care of cancer and cardiovascular diseases has

also impacted the growth in demand for radiopharmaceuticals.

In a recent report published by Future Market Insights, the global radiopharmaceuticals revenues in 2016

reached an estimated US$ 4,800 million value, and are anticipated to close in on US$ 8,500 million by the

end of 2026. In terms of revenue, the global radiopharmaceuticals market is projected to soar steadily at

5.9% CAGR.

Future Market Insights predicts that shorter half-life of radiopharmaceuticals, and lack of specified

guidelines for their use in commercial-scale drug production will restrict the market from growing at

higher rate. In the years to come, ageing research reactors from all corners of the world will be closed,

which will significantly bring down global production of radiopharmaceuticals. With respect to sourcing

these radiopharmaceuticals, the report predicts that nuclear reactors have accounted for more than 60%

of global market revenues till date.

Shutting down these reactors, however, has propelled the installation of cyclotrons, which are also a

feasible source for radioisotopes. Hence, sales of radiopharmaceuticals derived from cyclotrons will

continue to increase, amassing more than US$ 6,500 million by the end of 2026.

Surging Demand for Technetium-99 Radioisotope

Production of radiopharmaceuticals can be classified into several key radioisotopes, the prominent ones

include, fluorine-18, leutetium-177, gallium-68, gallium-67 and technetium-99. In 2016, sales of

radiopharmaceuticals constituting technetium-99 amassed revenues worth over US$ 2,200 million,

globally. By the end of 2026, fluorine-18 radioisotope will continue to account for 16% of global

radiopharmaceuticals revenues. On the other hand, global radiopharmaceutical revenues accounted by

leutetium-177, gallium-68 and gallium-67, respectively, will soar at more than 6% CAGR through 2026.

North America – Dominant Region for Sales of Radiopharmaceuticals

Access to advanced medical facilities, highly-trained professionals and lucrative healthcare expenditure

adds up to make North America the most dominant region in global radiopharmaceuticals market. North

America’s radiopharmaceuticals revenues will grow at more than 6% CAGR, accounting for nearly 50% of

global revenues by the end of 2026. Companies such as Positron Corporation, GE Healthcare,

Mallinckrodt plc, Lantheus Holdings, Inc., and Nordion, Inc., are observed to be leading players in global

radiopharmaceuticals market, and are all based across North America.

Radiopharmaceuticals Market

Siemens Healthineers is slated to remain the most dominant company in the global radiopharmaceuticals

market, accounting for over 40% of global revenues. Due to participation of Siemens and companies such

as Advanced Accelerator Applications (France), Bayer AG (Germany), IBA Radiopharma Solutions

(Belgium) and Eckert & Zeigler (Germany), Western Europe’s radiopharmaceuticals market is also

expected to expand progressively and close in on US$ 1,600 million valuation by the end of 2026.

Radiopharmaceuticals – Scope for Application & End-use

Favourable growth opportunities for radiopharmaceutical manufacturers from around the world are

sited in therapeutic applications such as oncology, cardiology, neuroendocrinology, and neurology,

among others.

In 2017 and beyond, consumption of radiopharmaceuticals for oncological procedures will gain

traction, registering revenue growth at 6% CAGR.

On the other hand, radiopharmaceuticals consumed by neurological studies & treatment procedures

will surge at the highest rate, surpassing US$ 700 million valuation by 2026-end.

Another key insight offered in the report suggests that radiopharmaceuticals used by diagnostic

imaging centres will increase over the forecast period.
