North America Nuclear Medicine Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The North American nuclear medicine market is estimated to be USD 9.59 billion by 2028 and USD 5.62 billion in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 11.3% during the forecast period.

The growing population diagnosed with cancer in the North American region is one of the major factors promoting the nuclear medicine market in North America. There are 2 million new cancers reported in the United States. Cancer is a dangerous disease that leads to death in the short term. Therefore, analysis of which part of the body is affected by cancer cells is essential for the treatment procedure. For this purpose, nuclear medicine has come into account. Nuclear medicine imaging for cancer is used for diagnosis, planning, and evaluating patient response to treatment. In this process, the researcher found several chemicals absorbed by specific organs and decided which organ in the body affects the cancer cells. Increasing awareness about this procedure among people suffering from different types of cancer and taking respective treatments for cancer drives the nuclear medicine market forward.

In addition, factors such as technological advancements, the growing adoption of minimally invasive procedures, rising demand for medical imaging procedures by the increasing aging population across North America propel the regional market growth. The growing healthcare expenditure, increasing usage of nuclear medicine in various applications such as diagnosis, staging, and treatment monitoring, an increasing number of initiatives such as Medicare and Medicaid to offer reimbursement for nuclear medicine procedures by the North American governments and the availability of skilled professionals such as nuclear medicine technologists and radiologists contributes to the growth of the North American nuclear medicine market. Furthermore, the growing number of strategic partnerships and collaborations between healthcare organizations and nuclear medicine companies and increasing awareness about the benefits of nuclear medicine among people boost the growth rate of the regional market.

However, one factor that restrains the growth of the nuclear medicine market in this region is the lack of essential equipment for radiation protection and research facilities in some regions. Other factors, such as the high cost of the procedures, lack of specialized personnel, and lack of awareness about the procedure, hamper the market growth during the forecast period. In addition, radiation may occur health risks to some people who are sensitive to the radiation, and for some people, it can temporarily reduce bone marrow counts. Health risks for some people due to this nuclear medicine, side effects after exposure to the radiation used for the procedure, and increasing alternative therapy hinder the market growth in this region.
