Introduction of innovative breast microseed treatment for breast cancer is projected to propel the growth of the brachytherapy market in North America
On the basis of region, the global brachytherapy market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa. North America is expected to hold a dominant position, and this can be attributed to the increasing adoption of breast microseed treatment for breast cancer. Using brachytherapy, breast microseed treatment involves the precise placement of radioactive seeds in the breast that slowly release the prescribed dose safely over the period. This is an innovative treatment for early-stage breast cancer, which affects 1 in 8 women in North America. For instance, According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2014, around 236,968 women and 2,141 men were diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S. Furthermore, the Asia Pacific is expected to be the key region in the global brachytherapy market, owing to the launch of Esteya Machine in 2016, for skin cancer treatment. The treatment uses low energy x-rays to target the cancerous site, with the ability to treat multiple lesions at once and a reduced chance of scarring.
Key players involved in the brachytherapy market include Elekta, Varian Medical Systems, Inc., Theragenics Corporation, Sun Nuclear Corporation, Argon Medical Devices, Eckert & Ziegler BEBIG, IsoRay Medical, Cianna Medical, iCAD Inc., and CIVCO Medical Solutions.
