Future of Japan Proton Therapy Market Looks Bright, States Renub Research in Its Topical Report Available at MarketPublishers.com02 Feb 2017 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – The Japanese proton therapy market was worth just over USD 100 million as of 2016, while the untapped proton therapy market value stood at USD 6 billion in the same year. This indicates that there is considerable mismatch between demand and supply, and the future of the national proton therapy market seems to look very bright.
The number of proton therapy patients in Japan has surged considerably since 2000; in 2016, there were 11 proton therapy centers in existence to treat patients. In particular, proton beam therapy is extremely helpful for childhood cancer. Proton beam therapy in the country is therefore often utilised with cancers that were hard to treat previously only with conventional surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy. These comprise carcinoma of the prostate, liver cancer, brain cancer, cervical and optical tumors, and childhood cancers.
