Brachytherapy is a type of radiation therapy used for the treatment of cancer. In brachytherapy, radioactive materials are placed inside patient body in order to deliver high doses of radiation to the target areas. Brachytherapy uses two type of techniques namely Low Dose Rate (LDR) and High Dose Rate (HDR). These techniques are predominantly used for the treatment of prostate cancer. Other newly developed brachytherapy techniques are Image Guided Brachytherapy (IGBT) and Pulse Dose Rate (PDR). Brachytherapy is now backed with software solutions which enable the healthcare providers for proper management and scheduling of brachytherapy for patients. The global rise in the prevalence of cancer is anticipated to increase the adoption of brachytherapy treatment. Additionally, benefits offered by brachytherapy over traditional treatment procedures such as lower treatment time and higher efficacy are likely to drive the global brachytherapy devices market.

The growth in the global brachytherapy devices market is projected to be driven by the increasing demand for brachytherapy. Moreover, certain advantages of brachytherapy such as less procedural time coupled with favourable health reimbursements are expected to offer significant growth opportunities for the brachytherapy devices market by 2026. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), the total number of cancer cases in the world in 2018 was approximately 18.1 million, also the number is estimated to reach 29.5 million by 2040.
