People have started relying on radiotherapy for effective treatment and complete eradication of diseases that should boost the industry growth.

Technological advancements in radiotherapy systems has positively impacted business growth. Recently developed radiotherapy devices are technologically advanced that enables accurate diagnosis increasing the success rate of treatment. Key industry players focus on developing advanced radiology technologies that helps to control the growth of cancer. Integration of technologies in these devices have reduced the mortality rates to a greater extent since past few years. Thus, above mentioned factors prove beneficial for the industry growth. However, radiotherapy also destroys healthy cells along with cancer tumors that may impede its adoption restraining radiology therapy market growth to some extent.

External radiotherapy segment is forecasted to witness immense growth during the analysis timeframe. Considerable segmental growth can be attributed to the benefits offered by external radiotherapy.
