By Type, Diagnostic Nuclear Medicine is estimated to account for the fast-growing segment during the forecasted period. The diagnostic nuclear medicine is further subdivided into Spect and PET Radiopharmaceuticals. Out of which Spect segment is assumed to hold the highest share in the forecasted period due to its wide availability and low cost.

By Application, the Oncology segment is estimated to account as the fast-growing segment during the forecasted period due to the increasing prevalence of cancer across different age groups. Also, one of the popular diagnostic techniques i.e, PET procedure, is increasingly being adopted for the diagnosis of cancer due to high imaging capabilities.

By End-User, the Hospital segment is estimated to account as the fast-growing segment during the forecasted period. It is mainly due to the rise in the adoption of various imaging technologies that involve PET scan or MRI Scan, along with the increasing presence of qualified medical practitioners in the radiology department across the globe.

By Procedure, Diagnostic Procedure consisting of SPECT and PET type of diagnosis is estimated to account as the fast-growing segment during the forecasted period. It is mainly due to the uncertainties in the production of other nuclear medicine that has led to the sifting trend towards PET procedures. Also, advancement like hybrid imaging systems such as PET-CT and PET-MRI has further boosted the growth of this segment.

By Region, North America is anticipated to lead the market. The factors attributed to the growth of the market are the increasing prevalence of cancer, technological advancements, and the high availability of radiopharmaceuticals, and the popularity of nuclear medicine among physicians.

The Global radiopharmaceutical market is further segmented based on Type, Application, Procedure, End-User, and Geography.
