Global Particle Therapy Market Overview


Particle Therapy Market Size was valued at USD 1.40 Billion in 2023. The Global Particle Therapy industry is projected to grow from USD 1.70 Billion in 2024 to USD 2.40 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.89% during the forecast period (2024 - 2032).


Particle therapy is one of the most advanced types of external beam radiation therapy for oncology in the world. This method saves more healthy radiation tissue than traditional photon therapy. 



These particles have better physical intrinsic qualities, lowering the intake dose to about half of what a clinically appropriate target would be. The market is predicted to develop because of the rising prevalence of cancer, low risk of treatment-induced illnesses, the opportunity for retreatment due to low radiation dose, and the growing number of particle therapy facilities around the world. 


Furthermore, increased R&D spending and aggressive methods used by leading companies, such as new product releases, are driving market expansion. The advantages gave by particle therapy, as well as the rising global occurrence of cancer, are driving market expansion. A major driving element for this market has been discovered to be the number of persons suffering from various cancers. Cancer is one of the most common life-threatening diseases nowadays. Cancer kills around 70% of people in low and middle-income nations. Because particle treatments are used to treat cancer, their increasing prevalence is projected to be a major driver of market expansion.



A comprehensive hospital in Southern China has been awarded to install a MEVION S250i Proton Therapy System with HYPERSCAN Pencil Beam Scanning (PBS) by Mevion Medical Systems scheduled for completion in May 2022. 


Moreover, The Connecticut Office of Health Strategy (OHS) approved, with conditions, the certificate of need application to allow Harford HealthCare Corporation and Yale New Haven Health Services Corporation to establish proton therapy services through a newly established joint venture, Connecticut Proton Therapy Center, LLC in April 2022.


In addition to that, IBA Worldwide announced a collaboration agreement with Tractebel in April 2021. This will fill the niche of proton therapy design and construction projects for IBA’s clients. 


For example, Moffitt Cancer Center announced its plans for a new proton therapy treatment facility in December 2021 that will offer precise radiation doses while sparing healthy tissues from damage.


Thus, Behnke Group was contracted by ProTom International in September 2021. To expand into the United States market, this association would increase the number of referrals made to ProTom from cancer patients who would be better served by having access to their best-in-class proton therapies through industry-leading contacts held by Behnke Group.


Hitachi Ltd. also revealed plans for an advanced proton therapy system at Clinica Universidad de Navarra in Spain in May 2020. It is powered using spot scanning technology that dispatches protons straight into tumors.


Also worth noting is that in April 2020, Mevion Medical Systems was awarded a medical device license from Health Canada for MEVION S250i Proton Therapy System with HYPERSCAN Pencil Beam Scanning (PBS).

Recent Development


Advanced Oncotherapy plc stated in December 2017 that it has secured new finance of USD 46.75 million, with USD 37.5 million coming from a new Chinese investor. During the assessment period, the lack of an acceptable reimbursement mechanism and the significant expenditures associated with the development of these centers may stifle particle therapy market expansion. In 2017, Mitsubishi Electric agreed to sell its particle therapy systems business to Hitachi and merge the two companies into one. Hitachi was able to strengthen its position in the proton therapy business as a result of this. The first compact proton therapy system in the Middle East was developed by Royal Philips (US) and Proton Partners International (UK) in collaboration with IBA (Belgium).
