London, UK (PRWEB) August 19, 2013
Globally, the radiopharmaceuticals market is poised to reach USD 5.5 billion by end-2017, at a CAGR of about 8% during 2012-2017. Tc-99m diagnostic procedures are expected to increase to 20% in mature markets in the long run. Further, upcoming radioisotopes such as radium-223 chloride (alpharadin) and gallium-68 have big potential for clinical applications.
The therapy market is primarily driven by its oncologic applications, where radioisotopes are being preferred due to minimum or no side effects. The radiopharmaceutical therapy market is expected to grow significantly with the launch of the much-desired Alpharadin (Ra-223) in the upcoming future. The isotope has huge potential to grab market share from existing beta emitters and brachytherapy. North America is the dominant market for diagnostic radioisotopes with about 50% share. The U.S. is the largest consumer market for radiopharmaceuticals in North America, while Canada is one of the largest producers of Tc-99m. Cardinal Health, Inc., GE Healthcare, Covidien, Plc, Lantheus Medical Imaging, Inc., Nordion, Inc., IBA Group, and Siemens Healthcare are the leading players in the radiopharmaceuticals market worldwide. The stable isotopes market is led by Cambridge Isotope Laboratories (CIL) and Isotec (Sigma Aldrich).
