For More Information Inquire @ Market Trend One trend in radiosurgery and radiotherapy robotics market is use for extracranial radiosurgery treatments. Extracranial radiosurgery is expected to gain traction during the forecast period as a new treatment option to treat tumors of the liver, lung, and spine, and other complicated cases. CyberKnife technology is especially useful in treating tumors with sub-millimeter precision. Other treatments require metal frames for tumors of brain, head, and neck, and body casts to limit movement during treatments of lung, liver, pancreas and kidney. Also, the treatment of prostate involves injection of hardening chemicals or rectal balloons. On the other hand, robotic systems like CyberKnife have the ability to conduct radiosurgeries without the requirement of any restricting frames, while ensuring greater accuracy in targeting a moving tumor. Market Driver One driver in radiosurgery and radiotherapy robotics market is increase in cancer cases and retreatments. A growing number of physicians and hospitals, which specialize in oncology treatments, are expected to adopt radiosurgery and radiotherapy for treatment of lesions and tumors. This is because these treatments enable a shorter treatment time and greater patient throughput, which ensures that the patient is immobilized on the treatment couch for a shorter period and allows patients to resume regular daily life soon. For physicians, it implies that there is a lesser probability of the tumor moving during the treatment, thus reducing throughput. This can eventually result in a higher number of patients being treated on a daily basis, hence greater revenue. Another major driver, especially for radiosurgery, is the rise in the cases of retreatment and relapse that makes radiosurgery a preferred choice as it involves a precise dose distribution, thus limiting the exposure of healthy tissues to excessive radiation. Market Challenge One challenge in radiosurgery and radiotherapy robotics market is high maintenance and equipment cost. Globally, end-users are gradually adopting robotic treatments in the healthcare sector. The adoption of robotic systems is better in developed countries of the Americas and Europe. Meanwhile,
