Asia Pacific to Retain Leadership in Global Radiodermatitis Market
Spread across Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, North America, Latin America, and Europe, the market for radiodermatitis boasts of a robust presence across the world. Asia Pacific, among all, has been leading the global radiodermatitis market, thanks to a higher percentage of patients eligible for radiotherapy. The increasing pool of cancer patients is expected to drive the Asia Pacific radiodermatitis market further, ensuring its dominance over the next few years. Since a number of Asian economies, situated in the tropical region, have humid weather conditions, the severity of radiation dermatitis is significantly high in this geographical segment, which is also expected to boost the market for radiodermatitis in Asia Pacific in the near future.
Amongst other regional markets for radiodermatitis, Europe also possesses a considerable share in the global market on account of the increase in research and development activities in life sciences, upswing in academic research in radiation dermatitis, and the escalating number of product launches in this region. The market in North America has been driven by the presence of a large pool of well-established pharmaceutical enterprises, research organizations, and several government institutes, which actively work on developing a standard treatment solution for radiodermatitis.
Latin America and the Middle East and Africa are likely to gain considerably from the increasing attention of multinational companies on them. The large base of the unprivileged population, particularly in the Middle East and central Africa, and the implementation of new policies encouraging the uptake of radiotherapy in these regions are anticipated to boost the radiodermatitis markets in Latin America and the Middle East and Africa.
