NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Radiation therapy is a procedure entailing the precise delivery of high doses of radiation to tumors and other relevant anatomical targets. It involves the usage of sophisticated technology to ablate tumors and other abnormalities with noninvasive procedures and high doses of radiation while minimizing the exposure to surrounding healthy tissues.
Gamma Knife radiosurgery is a major form of radiation therapy. It is mainly used to treat brain tumors, arteriovenous malformations, trigeminal neuralgia, acoustic neuroma, and pituitary tumors. In Gamma Knife surgery, specialized equipment focuses close to 200 tiny beams of radiation on a tumor or other targeted cells. Each beam has minimal effect on the brain tissue and it delivers strong doses of radiation to the targeted tumor cells for treatment.
Increasing prevalence of cancer, growing aging population, rising number of initiatives undertaken by various government associations, and advanced features of Gamma Knife systems are major drivers of the global Gamma Knife market. On the other hand, stringent regulatory requirements and prolonged approval time for Gamma Knife systems as well as high cost of implementation and shortage of skilled manpower are some major concerns for the global Gamma Knife market.
In terms of geography, North America dominates the global Gamma Knife market due to increasing prevalence of cancer as well as increasing investments by radiosurgery systems manufacturing companies. In addition, increased awareness about Gamma Knife technology for cancer treatment is also boosting the growth of the Gamma Knife market in the region. The U.S. represents the largest market for Gamma Knife, followed by Canada, in North America. In Europe, Germany, France, the U.K., Italy, and Spain hold major shares of the Gamma Knife market. However, Asia represents the fastest growing region in the Gamma Knife market. This is due to increasing prevalence of cancer and growing aging population. In Latin America, rising incidence of cancer and construction of manufacturing and research facilities by many companies is driving the Gamma Knife market in the region.
