Global Radiopharmaceuticals/Nuclear Medicine Market Analysis - Trends & Forecast to 2020
Albany, NewYork (PRWEB) November 29, 2014
North America holds the largest share for nuclear medicine market, followed by Europe. The U.S. market is highly supported by the Mo-99 production of NRU reactor (Canada) and ongoing researches in different clinical institutes such as National Cancer Institute, Avid Radiopharmaceuticals and so on. Besides developed markets, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to show a remarkable growth in the coming years. Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Rest of the World are poised to grow at a CAGR of more than 6% and 8% respectively by 2020. This region growth is attributed to aging population, rise in public awareness. Countries like China, India, Australia, and Brazil will be major contributors to the growth of the market.
Understanding the interlinked supply chain was a winning imperative for the market size estimation. Value chain analysis and pipeline analysis have contributed for consolidated market analysis, including the present and future impact of different factors. Demand and supply analysis identifies the potential risk of the interrupted supply of Mo-99 for the Tc-99m production, due to scheduled shutdown of major reactors and the benchmarking trend adopted by leading players to combat such operational difficulties.
Some of the key players contributing at a global level for nuclear medicine market growth are Cardinal Health, Inc. (United States), Cambridge Isotope Laboratories (United States), GE Healthcare (United Kingdom), IBA Group (Belgium) and Lantheus Medical Imaging, Inc. (United Sates).

Every year nearly 30 million nuclear imaging procedures are performed using Technetium (Tc-99). Molybdenum (Mo-99) is the target material for Tc -99 with a half-life of 66 hours and is produced from Uranium (U-235) irradiation in nuclear reactors. The purified Mo-99 is sent to Technetium generators where Tc-99 is produced and sent to hospitals. The Technetium generator market is dominated by two companies Mallinckrodt Plc and Lantheus Medical Imaging Inc.
