Northbrook, IL 60062 -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/06/2022 -- The nuclear medicine market is projected to reach USD 7.5 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 9.0% during the forecast period.

Increasing incidence and prevalence of target conditions;

The rising incidence and prevalence of cancer and cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a key factor supporting market growth. Most cases can be prevented through early detection and treatment; nuclear medicine plays a significant role in these areas. According to the WHO, cancer was the leading cause of death in 2020, accounting for nearly 10 million deaths. Annually, 19.3 million new cancer cases are expected to be reported worldwide by 2025. According to the WHO, globally, 17.9 million individuals died from CVD in 2019, accounting for 32% of the overall deaths globally. This figure is expected to reach 23.3 million by 2030. As nuclear medicine plays a significant role in disease diagnosis and treatment, the rising prevalence of these diseases is expected to drive the growth of the nuclear medicine market during the forecast period.
