The market of radiopharmaceuticals is dominated by diagnostic radioisotopes,
comprising of SPECT and PET radioisotopes. The lion’s share of the SPECT market is taken
up by Tc-99m, whereas the PET market is dominated by F-18FDG isotope. Furthermore, the PET
market will witness a double digit growth during the forecast period.

The therapeutic segment contributes only 10% to the global radiopharmaceuticals market
and I-131 has been considered as the gold standard for various oncology treatments in a
combined therapy. Global nuclear medicines market is majorly driven by the increasing
adoption of PET and SPECT scanners, and rising awareness for radiopharmaceuticals, whereas
short half life of isotopes and stringent regulations are the factors that are hindering
the growth of radiopharmaceuticals worldwide.

Besides highly preferred isotopes such as Tc-99m and F-18, significant growth is
witnessed for Tl-201 and Rb-82 in diagnostic market and Y-90 and Lu-177 in beta therapy
radioisotopes market. Exhaustive pipeline analysis reveals that coronary heart disease,
Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer, and bone metastasis will drive the diagnostic
radiopharmaceuticals market, whereas lymphoma, prostate cancer, bone metastasis, and
hepatocellular carcinoma will boost the future of therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals.
Besides new applications, the potential molecules that are expected to drive the market
include Alpharadin (Ra-223), Ga-68, F-18 florbetapir, and F-18 choline. Though Ra-223
application is still under clinical trial, the market is highly optimistic regarding its
clinical efficiency in prostate cancer, and bone metastasis.
