According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Asia-Pacific Nuclear Medicine Market by Type, Modality, Application, and End User: Regional Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021–2028,” the Asia-Pacific nuclear medicines market was valued at $4,116.43 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $8,957.89 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 10.4% from 2021 to 2028.

Radiopharmaceuticals are those radioisotopes that when bound to biological molecules, are able to target specific tissues, organs, or cells within the human body. These radioactive drugs can be used for the diagnosis and increasingly, for the therapy of diseases. A radiopharmaceutical can be observed as an entity built up having radionuclide and a vehicle molecule with high affinity or binding power toward tissue or a specific function of a human organ. Furthermore, it may comprise only the radioisotope itself if it illustrates suitable biological properties.

The Asia-Pacific nuclear medicine/radiopharmaceuticals market is poised to grow at a significant pace, owing to the demand for non-invasive techniques, availability of effective cancer treatment, and ability to observe the functioning of the organ from outside the body. Furthermore, increase in incidence of cancer & cardiovascular aliments, demand for alpha radio immunotherapy-based targeted cancer treatment, call for nuclear imaging techniques, and advancements in radiotracers may open new avenues in the radiopharmaceuticals market. Factors that drive the use of radiopharmaceuticals include change in lifestyle, elevated levels of stress, and their ability to identify various diseases sooner than other diagnostic tests. However, factors such as supply volatility & logistical challenges, stringent regulatory norms, and competition from conventional diagnostic procedures impede the Asia-Pacific nuclear medicine market growth.

The Asia-Pacific nuclear medicine market is segmented on the basis type, modality, application, end user, and country. On the basis of type, the market is divided into diagnostics, therapeutics, and biochemistry research. The diagnostics segment led the market in 2020, and is anticipated to continue this trend throughout the forecast period, owing to surge in incidence of cardiac related ailments and better imaging technique with the help of diagnostic equipment such as SPECT and PET. The increase in number of cancer patients who require early diagnosis for appropriate treatment propel the growth of diagnostics segment.

By modality, the Asia-Pacific nuclear medicine market is segregated into SPECT, PET, beta emitters, alpha emitters, brachytherapy, and others. The SPECT segment is expected to witness considerable market growth during the forecast period, owing to surge in the market for medical diagnosis such as cancer, cardiology, and neurology. Furthermore, getting multiple 2-D and 3-D images that are found by performing SPECT imaging technique helps in receiving better access in visualization and is useful for the physicians.

By application, the Asia-Pacific nuclear medicine market is segregated into oncology, cardiology, thyroid, neurology, and others. The oncology segment is expected to witness substantial market growth during the forecast period, owing to increase in advancements of radio-therapeutics which has propelled the ease in the treatment process of cancerous tumors and surge in the incidences of cancer.

By end user, the Asia-Pacific nuclear medicine market is segregated into hospitals & diagnostics centers and research institutes. The hospitals & diagnostic centers segment is expected to witness significant Asia-Pacific nuclear medicine market growth during the forecast period, owing to increased patient flow in the hospitals and the higher preference toward hospitals and diagnostic centers.

By country-wise segmentation, the market in China is expected to register the highest revenue shares during the forecast period pertaining to the presence of large targeted population base, increase in awareness regarding early diagnosis and therapeutics of cancer and cardiac ailments, and rise in disposable income. According to the statistics given by Chinese Medical Journal in 2020, China accounted for 24% of newly diagnosed cases and 30% of the cancer-related deaths worldwide in 2020. Among the 185 countries included in the database, China's age-standardized incidence rate (204.8 per 100,000) ranked 65th and the age-standardized mortality rate (129.4 per 100,000) ranked 13th. Moreover, India is anticipated to register fastest CAGR, owing to the higher cancer population base in the country.

Market players are adopting growth strategies such as product launches, mergers & acquisitions (M&As), and partnerships & collaborations to create sustainable position in the market. For instance, in March 2021, GE Healthcare unveiled StarGuide, a next-generation SPECT/CT system that uses the latest digital technologies to help clinicians improve patient outcomes in bone procedures, cardiology, neurology, oncology, and other medical specialties. The key players operating in the market are Bracco S.P.A. (Bracco Imaging S.P.A.), Bwx Technologies, Inc. (Nordion, Inc.),  Cardinal Health, Inc.,  Danaher Corporation (GE Healthcare), FUJIFILM Toyama Chemical Co., Ltd. (FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation), Ion Beam Applications (Ion Beam Applications, SA), Lantheus Holdings, Inc. (Lantheus Medical Imaging, Inc.), Novartis AG (Advanced Accelerator Applications S.A.), Otsuka Holdings Co., Ltd. (ABX advanced biochemical compounds GmbH), and Siemens Healthcare GmbH.
