The radiopharmaceutical manufacturing market is estimated to be worth $10.6 billion in 2030 and is expected to grow at CAGR of 16.4% during the forecast period. Since the discovery of the means to artificially synthesize radioisotopes (early 1930s), they were almost immediately adopted for healthcare applications, by the mid-1940s. Presently, a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic techniques are based on the use of such substances, commonly referred to as radiopharmaceuticals. Despite their inherent toxicity, nuclear medicine is considered an important part of modern healthcare, with applications spanning across a number of therapeutic areas, including infectious diseases, immunological disorders, gastroenteric disease, cardiological disorders, oncological disorders, neurological disorders, and even certain psychiatric conditions. According to an article published by World Nuclear Association in May 2020, more than 10,000 hospitals worldwide claim to be using radioisotopes for various medical procedures; interestingly, of the aforementioned applications, 90% were reported to be related to disease diagnosis Typically, diagnostic tests, involving radiopharmaceuticals, are performed using highly specialized imaging solutions, such as single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET). It is worth highlighting that around 40 million diagnostic procedures, involving the use of the radioisotope Tc-99m alone, are conducted worldwide annually. Further, the introduction of the concept of theranostics, which involves the use of a single active ingredient for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, has opened up a new dimension of applications for nuclear medicine.
Over the years, medical research teams across the world have gradually tapped into the vast potential of radiopharmaceuticals and nuclear medicines. In fact, the technology that is now used in this field is reported to have witnessed significant evolution, in terms of technological sophistication. As a result, the demand for such specialized chemicals has grown at an exponential rate. However, the development and production of radiopharmaceuticals is inherently complex, and requires specialized facilities and operational expertise. Therefore, acquiring the necessary technical acumen and infrastructure to support such operations is not a feasible option for pharmaceutical companies, owing to a number of associated clauses and concerns (such as need for high capital investments, unique operating licenses and compliance to special regulatory requirements). Currently, stakeholders in the pharmaceutical industry primarily rely on suppliers and contract manufacturers to fulfill their radiopharmaceutical procurement needs. Moreover, there are a number of specialty service providers that claim to be engaged in this field, offering a variety of radioisotopes and affiliated services for healthcare applications. As more applications are discovered, the demand for nuclear material suppliers and service providers is likely to increase. This, coupled to the anticipated advances in the field of radiopharmaceuticals, affiliated technologies and products, is expected to offer lucrative opportunities to the contract service providers that are engaged in radiopharmaceutical manufacturing market during the forecast period.
