Market Overview

Nuclear Medicine is a branch of medicine which uses radioactive substances in small amounts for diagnosis and treatment of various diseases. Nuclear medicine can be used for the treatment of various conditions including blood disorder, and some cancers and use vastly different imaging technologies than those used in traditional imaging as they show physiological function of the particular system making it a more targeted method of imaging. Market Research Future's report on the global nuclear medicine supplies market divulges a number of vital figures and facts about the market. Nuclear Medicine Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13% over the review period. With the rapid expansion of advanced medical technologies, the market is expected to grow at a consistent upward trend to approximate market value of USD 13 Bn by the end of 2027.

Nuclear medicine market offers precise diagnostic abilities and is useful in the early detection of cancer as well as other diseases such as cardiovascular disorders. The increasing prevalence of cancer and other chronic diseases and a high demand for early diagnosis of such diseases for effective treatment is a significant driver of the global market. Moreover, increasingly radiopharmaceuticals are being used for the diagnosis or treatment of chronic diseases in geriatric patients. The rapid expansion of this demographic is expected to encourage the growth of the market. The WHO has recorded astounding figures regarding the prevalence of cancer at nearly one out of every six deaths, making it one of the most significant causes for patient mortality, thus increasing the demand for nuclear medicine.


MRFR has conducted a detailed study of the various parts of the nuclear medicine market analysis which has been segmented on the basis of product type, application, end-user, and region.
