LONDON – Approximately 1.8 million new cases of cancer are discovered annually, with the largest percentage of ill cancer patients treated with radiation therapy. Proton therapy represents the most up-and-coming sector of the radiation therapy market. At present, there are around 40 facilities around the globe offering such cancer treatment. The worldwide market for proton therapy devices was evaluated at above USD 345 million in 2011 and is set to grow significantly in the upcoming years.

IBA has been the most prominent market participant for several decades, but it is expected to lose its current market share in 4-5 years since such companies as Varian, Mitsubishi and Hitachi are gaining strength.

In the USA, the first proton center in a hospital setting was opened around 20 years ago. Since then, more than 33,000 local citizens have received the therapy.
