Therapeutic nuclear medicine finds its application in the treatment of various types of cancer such as lymphoma, bone metastasis, thyroid, endocrine tumors etc. Radionuclide therapy has unique promise as a vehicle for personalized treatment of cancer. Alpha emitters that use bismuth-213 and astatine-211 labeled monoclonal antibodies in patients with leukemia and brain tumor and radium- 223 are being evaluated in breast and prostate cancer patients with bone metastases. Beta emitters are currently limited to yttrium-90 and iodine-131, which are used in the treatment of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, samarium-153-EDTMP, and strontium-89-chloride for palliation of bone metastases. The market scope of preclinical and clinical research in the therapy field is much broader.

The number of therapeutic procedures in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific is 265, 22,195, and 271,248 for the year 2013 respectively. Talking about country-wise therapeutic procedures, the US has 262 therapeutic procedures. Developing countries like India hold strong market potential, accounting for 7475 therapeutic procedures.

The market is segmented into Beta Emitters (Iodine-131 (I-131), Yttrium-90 (Y-90), Samarium-153 (SM-153), Rhenium-186 (RE-186), Lutetium-177 (LU-177)and Others); Alpha Emitters(Radium-223 (RA-223) & Alpharadin, Actinium-225 (AC-225), Lead-212 (PB-212)/Bismuth-212 (BI-212)and Astatine-211 (AT-211)) and Brachytherapy (Cesium-131, Iodine-125, Palladium-103 and Iridium-192), applications and geography ( North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific).

Mergers and acquisitions of small and medium-sized manufacturers to enter the overseas market is a strategy adopted by multinational players.

Some of the key players in the market are:

IBA Group

Lantheus Medical Imaging

NTP Radioisotopes

Siemens Healthcare (PETNET Solutions)

Triad Isotopes
