Nuclear medicine has high potential for treatment of neurological diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and dementia. Practitioners prefer radiopharmaceuticals over conventional methods of treatments in neurological diseases.
Study estimates that Tc-99m diagnostic procedures are expected to increase by 15% to 20% in mature markets such as Europe, and other developed regions between 2010 and 2030.
Radiopharmaceutical market is driven by increasing use of SPECT and PET therapy, increasing awareness of people for radiopharmaceuticals, ready availability of nuclear isotopes. Since conventional treatment procedures of cancer, surgery and chemotherapy have significant side effects, radioisotopes are being preferred by medical practitioners due to minimum or no side effects. The radiopharmaceutical therapy market is expected to grow significantly with the launch of the Alpharadin (Ra-223) in the near future. This isotope has tremendous potential to take up market share of beta emitters and brachytherapy. Another driving factor for the market is the umbrella organisation for Nuclear Medicine, EANM in Europe which stands ready for political follow up and professional input to guarantee patient care and patient safety throughout Europe. Further upcoming radioisotopes such as Ra-223 (Alpharadin) and Ga-68 possess huge potential for clinical applications. The scheduled shutdown of the nuclear reactor , NRU in 2016 and OSIRIS in 2018 , is a major threat for the radiopharmaceutical market.
The market is segmented by applications (Diagnostic and Therapeutic). Diagnostic market consists of SPECT and PET radioisotopes. The therapeutic market is segmented as Beta emitters, Alpha emitters and brachytherapy. Countries covered include Germany, France, UK , Spain and Italy.
Short half life of the radioisotopes , high capital investment involved and more regulatory guidelines are the major constraints for the market.
Germany is the largest consumer market for radiopharmaceuticals in the Europe. There are 5 major nuclear reactors in the world and rest of the countries are dependent on them for supply of radiopharmaceuticals.
Major players in the market are Covidien , IBA Group, Lantheus Medical Imaging, Triad Isotopes, Siemens Healthcare (PETNET Solutions), NTP Radioisotopes.
