Europe Radiopharmaceuticals Market will exhibit sluggish growth at 4.9% CAGR during the forecast period 2021-2031

As per Future Market Insights (FMI), driven by rising cases of cancer and cardiovascular diseases, Radiopharmaceutical Market registered steady year-on-year growth at 4.90% CAGR in 2021.

Increasing development of radioisotopes to curb the cases of cancer have propelled the market demand, topping a valuation of US$ 6,107.2 Mn in 2021. Rising cases of prostate and breast cancer, especially in developed countries including the U.S., the U.K., and Germany, have increased the application of radiopharmaceuticals.

Government initiatives and research activities undertaken to develop advanced radioisotopes for the treatment of cancer and to develop novel therapeutics will boost the demand. Also, introduction of novel technologies such as Positron Emission Technology and others in nuclear imaging systems will bolster growth.

However, due to the global shutdown witnessed in the FQ-20 in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, growth declined considerably. Suspended production of radioisotopes and disruption in the research activities delayed the deployment of projects in the healthcare sector.

Although, with increasing development activities and increasing commercialization of radiopharmaceuticals by industry giants have picked up the pace for the growth of market. Alongside this, increasing cases of cancer will accelerate the development of nuclear medicines in the field of radiopharmaceuticals.

Increasing preference of non-invasive medical therapies and production of radioisotopes for the treatment is another factor that will stabilize the growth of radiopharmaceuticals market. Based on this, FMI projects the market is poised to expand at over 4.66% CAGR during the forecast period of 2021 and 2031.
