Drivers: Advantages offered by particle therapy over photon therapy

In recent years, particle therapy has undergone significant technological advancements. These advancements have helped manufacturers develop more effective and controlled particle therapy systems that are minimally invasive, deliver reduced levels of radiation to healthy tissues, and have fewer side effects.

Particle therapy, especially proton therapy, offers several advantages over conventional photon therapy. These benefits are propelling the growth of this market, especially in mature markets where the adoption rate of technologically advanced products is high. Listed below are some advantages of particle therapy over traditional photon-based radiotherapy methods:

  • Targets tumors and cancer cells with more precision
  • Less energy is released and minimal exit dose, which reduces the risk of damage to the surrounding healthy tissues and organs
  • Reduces the overall toxicity and probability and/or severity of short- and long-term side-effects on the surrounding healthy tissues and organs, which, in turn, reduces the likelihood of secondary tumors caused by the treatment
  • Is an appropriate alternative for patients who have reached the limit of conventional radiation
  • Is more beneficial for pediatric patients in comparison to photon therapy as children have a constant high rate of mitosis, which requires a more targeted approach (easily achieved with proton therapy) with reduced risk of long-term side-effects
  • Is a preferred alternative in cancers with limited treatment options
  • Offers improved quality of life during and after treatment, with reduced chances of secondary tumors

Opportunities: Growing adoption of particle therapy in emerging markets

Rapid economic development and the increasing healthcare expenditure in many emerging countries such as China, India, Brazil, and Mexico are expected to improve access to quality healthcare in these countries. This is considered a positive indicator of the particle therapy market. The rising incidence of cancer in these countries results in the growth in the demand for various particle therapy devices and techniques. According to GLOBOCAN 2021, there were 9.5 million new cancer cases in the Asian region in 2021, and this figure is projected to reach 12.8 million by 2030.

In order to leverage the high growth opportunities for particle therapy in these markets, manufacturers are strategically focusing on expanding their presence in these countries. Some related developments are listed below:

  • In April 2019, The Varian office in Hertford Office Park, Johannesburg, was officially inaugurated.
  • In October 2019, Samyang Biopharmaceutical Corp. (South Korea) announced to expand its business operations in the US to leverage the company’s biopharmaceutical and medical device market in the country.

Additionally, due to less-stringent regulations and data requirements, the regulatory policies in the Asia Pacific region are considered more adaptive and business-friendly by market players. This encourages several companies to focus more on emerging markets in the coming years.

Asia pacific segment accounted for the largest share in the particle therapy market by Region


The market has been segmented on the basis of five regional segments, namely, North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. Among these, the Asia Pacific market is expected to account for the largest market share in 2021 and is also projected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period. The Asia Pacific region is expected to offer significant growth opportunities for players operating in the market owing to the increasing healthcare expenditure and growing initiatives to promote the use of advanced particle therapy technologies in the Asia Pacific countries.
