Radiopharmaceutical Theranostics Market Size to Cross USD 12.4 Bn by 2031 | Transparency Market Research

The global radiopharmaceutical theranostics market growth is driven by the rise in prevalence of cancer & other diseases and advancements in radiopharmaceutical technology. Surge in demand for personalized medicine is another factor fueling market development

Wilmington, Delaware, United States, April 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global radiopharmaceutical theranostics market was valued at USD 3.0 Bn in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 12.4 Bn by 2031 with CAGR of 15.1%.

Recent market trends indicate an increase in utilization of PET/CT imaging agents, which use positron-emitting radioisotopes, such as fluorine-18 and gallium-68. PET is preferred over conventional imaging techniques for staging and diagnosis of prostate cancers due to its high-resolution and better diagnostic accuracy. Rise in demand for prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) theranostics is likely to offer lucrative opportunities for companies in the market.

Introduction of novel theranostic and radiotherapy approaches is likely to increase effectiveness of targeted single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/CT imaging of prostate and neuroendocrine tumors. The U.S. FDA and several organizations in Europe have approved a number of novel theranostic agents. These theranostic molecules target PSMA and are useful to treat castrate-resistant prostate cancers and oligometastatic prostate cancer.

Another example is development of novel theranostics for pediatric tumor-specific targets. Surge in need for early staging of cancers to avoid bone metastasis (cancer that spreads/metastasizes to the bones) is anticipated to accelerate radiopharmaceutical theranostics market development.

Key Findings of Study

  • Significant Adoption of Radiopharmaceutical Theranostics for Therapy and Diagnosis of Cancer & Other Diseases: Need for faster and accurate diagnosis, early staging, and rapid treatment of specific tumors have spurred the demand for theranostics in nuclear medicine. Surge in demand for targeted alpha therapy is anticipated to propel the radiopharmaceutical theranostics market. Adoption of targeted alpha particle therapy to manage/treat neuroendocrine tumors has increased in the past few years.
  • Utilization of 177Lu in Therapy and Imaging to Bolster Market Value: High efficacy and favorable toxicity profile of targeted alpha-particle radiotherapy is likely to drive the targeted therapeutic (Rx) segment. 177Lu (Lutetium-177) is gathering traction in the market, owing to the fact that it can efficiently deliver therapeutic radiation to cancer cells. Additionally, 177Lu is utilized in high-quality SPECT/CT imaging; lutetium-177 (Lutathera) is used to treat neuroendocrine tumors of the digestive tract.

Clinical trials with the objective of development of innovative theranostic approaches in nuclear medicine are likely to pave the way for introduction of radiopharmaceutical agents with enhanced antitumor efficacy.
