Rate of new cases of cancer is 442.4 per 100,000 men and women per year between 2014 and 2018, hence increasing prevalence of cancer is expected to increase demand for cyclotrons. Prostate, lung, and colorectal cancers account for an estimated 43% of all cancers diagnosed in men in 2020. Rising number of cancer cases is expected to increase demand for diagnosis and treatment for cancer cases. Cyclotrons produce radioisotopes, which can be used for Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans to investigate tumors, will drive revenue growth of the market during the forecast period.

Cyclotrons accelerate charged particles to very high speed using electromagnetic fields and produce radioisotopes, which are used to produce a type of medical drug called radiopharmaceuticals, used to diagnose and treat cancer. Radiopharmaceuticals are used in diagnostic imaging and radiotherapy and further assists in diagnosis of organs and treatments of pathological conditions such as cancer. Radiopharmaceuticals deliver radiation therapy directly and specifically to cancer cells. Radioactive compound present in radiopharmaceuticals breaks down naturally after targeting cancer cells. This radioactive decay of compound releases energy that irreparably damages DNA of nearby cells resulting in the death of cell. Cancer cells are particularly sensitive to radiation-induced DNA damage. For instance, in 2018, the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) approved lutetium Lu 177-dotatate (Lutathera) for treatment of certain cancerous Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) affecting digestive tract. Lutetium Lu 177 dotatate is the first radioactive drug approved to treat these rare cancers.

Rapid technological advancements in diagnosis and treatment of cancer are expected to increase demand for cyclotrons significantly. Major advances made in nuclear medical imaging and rapidly increased use of radioisotopes in medicine are expected to support revenue growth of the market significantly. Radioisotopes used in biomedical procedures, such as diagnostic imaging or treatments, are produced in cyclotrons wherein charged particles are bombarded in an accelerator. Similarly, superconducting cyclotron allows an increase in intensity of proton beam by a significant rate and thereby lowers irradiation time. Additionally, power consumption is reduced by 40% due to incorporation of superconducting magnets, thereby lowering operation costs of proton therapy system. This is expected to contribute to market revenue growth significantly.
