Increasing Incidence of Cancer and Cardiac Ailments
Increasing incidence of cancer and cardiac ailments is the major driver of the market. Nuclear medicine shows a huge potential in treating cardiac and cancer diseases. According to Cancer Index, it is estimated that 6,763,000 new cases and 4,499,500 deaths occur every year due to cancer in the Asian region. Cardiology applications will continue to demonstrate strong growth in the market. Other factors, such as increasing SPECT and PET applications and growing public awareness for healthcare, are expected to drive the market in the future.
Strict Regulatory Guidelines
Regulatory requirements pose another hurdle to translational research and clinical investigations. For example, in India, all the approvals for nuclear medicine products are given by the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB), and, including diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals and radio therapeutics, undergo regulatory procedures by AERB. Similarly, in other countries, such as China, have full government infrastructure and corresponding legal system for the safety of nuclear medicine/radiopharmaceuticals. There are several regulatory departments in China to ensure the safety of radiopharmaceuticals, such as the State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA), China Atomic Energy Authority (CAEA), Ministry of Health (MOH), and State Environment Protection Administration (SEPA). Additionally, reimbursement hurdles for the manufacturer and high capital investment are also restraining the market growth.
Diagnostics Segment to Dominate the Market
The diagnostic radioisotopes segment is expected to account for the largest share of the Asia-Pacific nuclear medicine market due to the increased use of SPECT and PET for diagnosis of cardiac diseases, brain diseases, cancer, and many other diseases.
