Key Market Trends

Temporary Brachytherapy dominates the Asia Pacific Brachytherapy devices market

In temporary brachytherapy, the radioactive sources are removed at the end of each treatment session. The sources are often inserted using applicators such as thin plastic tubes (catheters) or cylinders. These applicators may be removed at the end of each session, or left in place until after the final session. Temporary brachytherapy is mostly used for prostate cancers and gynecological cancers (such as cervical and vaginal cancers). As the prevalence of Prostate cancer is gradually increasing in the APAC countries every year, temperory brachytherapy segment is likely to grow significantly in the region. According to Globocan, 2018,  Prostate cancer is among the top ten leading sites of cancers in India. 25,696 new cases and 17,184 deaths were reported in 2018.
