The global interventional oncology market size was valued at USD 1.88 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 2.02 billion in 2023 to USD 3.45 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period.

Interventional oncology refers to the diagnosis, treatment, and palliation of cancer using minimally invasive procedures performed under image guidance. The increasing cancer incidence amongst the population and the rising healthcare burden caused by these conditions, is expected to boost the demand for novel interventional oncology procedures and approaches for the management of these diseases.

  • According to the data published by the World Health Organization, the estimated number of new cancer cases globally in 2020 was 18.0 million.

  • Furthermore, in 2020, breast cancer and lung cancer were the most common cancer types observed among cancer patients, having an incidence of about 2.3 million and 2.2 million, respectively.

In addition to this, a surge in the number of cancer diagnoses and growing initiatives in terms of research activities among the market players to develop novel therapies for different cancer types is expected to spur the global interventional oncology market growth during the forecast period.


Reduced Number of Patient Visits During Pandemic Slowed Market Growth

The COVID-19 impact on the market growth was negative during the pandemic. The temporary shutdown of hospitals and clinics and the higher focus of healthcare providers to accommodate a large number of patients with respiratory distress due to the COVID-19 infections were the major factors responsible for the negative impact on the market during the pandemic. The lockdown restrictions imposed by the government authorities globally resulted in the cancellation or postponement of oncology treatment, which resulted in the reduced number of patient visits to hospitals and clinics. This resulted in decreased demand for these devices amongst the patient population globally.

Furthermore, several market players experienced a decline in their revenue due to the COVID-19 outbreak. For instance, BD, a major market player, witnessed a decline in its revenue generated by its peripheral interventional sales by 4.0% in 2020, compared to 2019, due to the lower interventional oncology device sales.

However, with the uplifting of lockdown restrictions, the number of hospital visits for cancer diagnostics and treatment significantly increased in 2021, which compensated for the missed appointments for various indications of 2020. Also, few market players witnessed growth in their revenue in 2021 owing to the recovery of the market from the COVID-19 pandemic and increased demand for interventional oncology products. The market is anticipated to witness steady growth prospects during the forecast period.


Growing Adoption of Radioembolization as a Treatment for Oncology to Drive Market Growth

In recent years, the market has seen significant adoption of radioembolization as a treatment for oncology, which is the prominent global interventional oncology market trend. Radioembolization is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the targeted delivery of radioactive microspheres directly into the blood vessels that feed tumors.

Previously, while this method was developed for liver cancer, radioembolization is currently being explored for the treatment of cancers, including colorectal cancer and neuroendocrine tumors. This expansion of indications is expected to drive its adoption in a broader range of cancer, thereby driving market size. The market players are also increasing their focus on the advancements in imaging technology and the development of more precise microspheres for radioembolization to improve the procedure's safety and effectiveness. Such strategic initiatives by the market players increase the adoption of these devices for both patients and healthcare providers.

Growing Prevalence of Cancer Globally to Propel Market Growth

The growing prevalence of oncology patients suffering from different types of cancer, such as liver cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, and others among the population, is one of the major factors contributing to the rising patient population globally. However, the prevalence of these oncological conditions is found to be higher in the male population as compared to the female. For instance, in February 2022, according to an article published by the World Health Organization (WHO), breast and lung cancer was found to be 2.26 million and 2.21 million cases, respectively, in 2020, which are the leading types of cancer across the globe.

Thus, these factors, coupled with the increasing focus of the market players to develop and introduce novel drugs and therapies to treat cancer, are expected to boost the demand and adoption of interventional oncology in the market during the forecast period.

Preferential Shift Toward Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedures to Augment Market Growth

There is a growing focus on minimally invasive surgical procedures amongst the patient population owing to their distinct advantages, such as lesser pain, reduced length of hospital stays, and other favorable factors. Moreover, faster recovery, lower risk of complications, and improved precision are some of the additional factors contributing to the rising adoption of these procedures among patients. Minimally invasive surgeries use techniques that limit the size and number of cuts during surgeries and decrease the number of soft-tissue injuries. According to a comparative study published by NCBI in January 2021, the study was on Minimally Invasive Surgical (MIS) procedures and open surgery in China, it was observed that patients who underwent MIS showed lower complications than patients who had undergone open surgery. For instance, in January 2019, according to an article published by the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO), the number of women being diagnosed with ovarian cancer is likely to rise to 371,000 new cases by 2035. Such a rising number of patients diagnosed with ovarian cancer is expected to drive the demand for these products during the forecast timeframe.

Additionally, increasing initiatives among governmental and non-governmental organizations to raise awareness about the benefits of minimally invasive surgical procedures are supporting the adoption of these procedures among healthcare providers. Therefore, rising benefits associated with minimally invasive procedures, coupled with rising focus on the development of new products by key players for cancer patients, are driving the global market size.


High Cost and Lack of Specialized Professionals for Oncology Treatment May Limit Market Growth

The high costs associated with interventional oncology treatments have emerged as a significant hindrance that could limit the global market growth. In the treatment, the advanced technology and specialized equipment required for procedures include radiofrequency ablation, microwave ablation, and image-guided therapies. These instruments come with a substantial cost, which restricts hospitals or medical facilities from investing heavily in terms of installing them in their facility.

Furthermore, the lack of specialized professionals to perform minimally invasive oncology procedures is another limiting factor, especially in emerging countries. The developing countries might lack in providing training, as these medical professionals need to undergo extensive training and education, which requires cost and time. Moreover, patients in developing regions with a shortage of specialized professionals may face delays in receiving minimally invasive oncology treatments, thereby negatively impacting the adoption of devices. This hindrance is expected to limit the growth of the market during the forecast period.
