Radiopharmaceuticals Market 10-Year Market Forecast

Radiopharmaceuticals are the formulations containing radioactive substances called as radioisotopes or radiotracers. Radiopharmaceuticals are intended to administer to the patient by oral route, parenteral route or IV injections or put into the body cavity; depending on the drug being administered. Small doses of radiopharmaceuticals are often used for diagnostic purpose whereas, larger doses are used for therapeutic purpose. As a therapeutic moiety, radiopharmaceuticals can either be administered to the patient per se, such as in case of metastatic prostate cancer treatment where IV injection of Radium-223 chloride is administered to the patient, or it can be given as molecular radiotherapy or radiolabelled antibody where radiotracer is attached to the cell targeting molecule. Radiopharmaceuticals are used to treat conditions such as cancers, hyperthyroidism, dementia, epilepsy etc.

Moreover, radiopharmaceuticals serve a vast applications in diagnostics including but not limited to imaging anatomy of the organ, monitoring the function of a specific organ such as heart, liver, thyroid glands, bones etc. Diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals are largely being used in techniques such as Single-photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET). According to World Nuclear Association, the number of nuclear procedures performed in U.S. in 2012 were recorded as 20 million while that in Europe was 10 million and is projected to increase by 10% by 2017. Radiopharmaceuticals when used as a diagnostic agents are called as radioactive tracers, which emit the radiations from within the body which can be continuously collected externally and monitored over a period equal to shelf life of a tracer. Some of the commercially available radiopharmaceuticals include Metastron (Strontium-89), Xofigo (Radium-223), Quadramet (samarium 153), Amyvid (Fluorine-18), ProstaScint (Indium-111), Glofil-125 (Iodine-125), Cardiogen-82 (Rubidium-82), Ceretec (Technetium-99m), Zevalin (Yttrium-90) and others.

Radiopharmaceuticals Market: Overview

Technetium-99 is the most widely used radiotracer in the diagnostic procedures and thus holds the maximum market share in the global radiopharmaceuticals market. According to International Atomic Energy Agency, each year more than 80% of the total nuclear diagnostic procedures performed worldwide use Technetium-99 as a radiotracer and is predicted to maintain its share over the forecast period due to abundant availability of the molybdenum-99 as a starting material. On the basis of application, diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals segment dominates the global market for radiopharmaceuticals owing to development of new and efficient techniques over the conventional diagnostic methods. In spite of comparatively less use of radiopharmaceuticals as a therapeutic agents, emergence of new effective procedures employing nuclear medicine is expected to fuel the growth of the therapeutic radiopharmaceutical application segment.

Global Radiopharmaceuticals Market Insight
Radioisotopes are radioactive isotopes having an unstable balance of atomic nucleus. Radioisotopes are produced either by using nuclear research reactor or by using cyclotron. These isotopes emit energy in the form of alpha, beta or gamma when changed to a stable nature. The gamma rays, thus emitted are used in Nuclear medicine, specifically in medical diagnostics. In this field, the radiation is used to provide diagnostic information about a
