Global Demand for Therapeutic Nuclear Medicines is expected to Increase Given its Superior Efficacy in Cancer Treatment

Radiopharmaceuticals are used for diagnosis as well as therapeutic purposes. But the radiopharmaceuticals are currently used for diagnostic purpose rather than the therapeutic purpose. At present, Therapeutic Nuclear Medicines accounts for only 12.9% of the revenue of the global radiopharmaceutical market. However, Therapeutic Nuclear Medicines is expected to account for around 60-65% of the revenue of the global radiopharmaceutical market by 2030. According to the latest research by Future Market Insights (FMI), the global therapeutic nuclear medicines market is estimated to account for US$ 619.2 Mn in terms of value during 2017. The report on therapeutic nuclear medicines further projects significant growth potential with an average year-on-year growth rate pegged at 11.1% over the period of 2018-2028.

The positive results of Xofigo for
the treatment of prostate cancer and the launch of Iodine-131 for the treatment
of hypothyroidism and thyroid cancer in developed countries are among the
factors fuelling the growth of the therapeutic nuclear medicines market. Moreover,
the leading radiopharmaceutical manufacturers are collaborating with hospitals
and cancer research institutes for the sale of their products, and this has
increased the acceptance of therapeutic nuclear medicines. The increasing usage
of radiopharmaceuticals in therapeutic indications has boosted the interest of
mainstream pharmaceutical companies to collaborate with suppliers to build a
strong supply chain.

The treatment of cancer or bone metastasis
by Therapeutic Nuclear Medicines requires proper precautions due to high
exposure to radiation. According to guidelines by the FDA, Therapeutic Nuclear
Medicines must be prescribed to a patient by a registered nuclear medicine
physician.  In the past decade, there has
been a decline in the number of nuclear medicine physicians in the U.S. and
Europe. On other hand, the demand for the nuclear medicine physicians is
increasing exponentially due the rising prevalence of cancer. Hence, this
demand supply gap of nuclear medicine physicians is likely to hamper the growth
of the Therapeutic Nuclear Medicines market over the forecast period.

The treatment of cancer and other
diseases by chemotherapy results in several adverse effects that last for a prolonged
period. Moreover, there are several risks associated with surgical procedures
for the treatment of different diseases. However, radiographers and medical
professionals have not observed any physiological responses or adverse effects
pertaining to the usage of nuclear medicine. According to nuclear medicine physicians,
if few safety guidelines are followed, the usage of therapeutic nuclear
medicines for the treatment of cancer is completely safe. Hence, the rising
acceptance of therapeutic nuclear medicines among physicians due to the negligible
risk associated with their usage is expected to boost the Therapeutic Nuclear
Medicines market over the forecast period.
