Proton beam therapy or proton therapy, part of particle therapy is the most advanced form of radiation therapy with precise dose sculpting and efficiency. It is an external beam radiotherapy using photon ionizing radiation to irradiate tumors. It successfully eradicates side-effects associated with other forms of conventional radiation therapies for destroying cancer cells. The proton therapy systems market by technology has been segmented into pencil beam scanning systems, uniform scanning systems and passive scattering systems. Pencil beam scanning being the most precise method of proton beam delivery has highest dosimetric advantage.

Proton therapy has become mainstream treatment modality in cancer treatment worldwide due to its precise and non-invasive nature. Growth of the industry is mainly attributed to increasing prevalence of cancer, growth of geriatric population, minimally invasive nature and rise in public awareness. However, major industry restraints include high treatment cost, stringent regulations and limited insurance coverage. The industry is characterized by latest industry trends such as decreasing cost of proton therapy equipment and technological advancement in the industry.
