Radiation therapy is a procedure entailing the precise delivery of high doses of radiation to tumors and other relevant anatomical targets. Gamma Knife radiosurgery is a major form of radiation therapy. It is mainly used to treat brain tumors, arteriovenous malformations, trigeminal neuralgia, acoustic neuroma, and pituitary tumors. In Gamma Knife surgery, specialized equipment focuses close to 200 tiny beams of radiation on a tumor or other targeted cells. These beams deliver strong doses of radiation to targeted tumor cells with refined precision. This effectively means that surrounding healthy tissues are exposed to minimal or no radiation whatsoever. (more…)

Gamma knife technology ensures precise delivery of high doses of radiation to tumours in brain and other anatomical targets. The technology is extensively used to treat brain tumours, acoustic neuroma, pituitary tumours, trigeminal neuralgia, and others. The rising number of patients suffering from cancer has led to the surging demand for Gamma Knife technology. The global Gamma Knife Market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 3.6% during the period between 2014 and 2020.
Growing Usage of Stereotactic Radiation Therapy to Boost Global Gamma Knife Technology
The growing prevalence of cancer across the globe, coupled with the rising geriatric population, bolsters the global Gamma Knife market. The increasing awareness among people about cancer care and advanced features of Gamma Knife have further boosted the growth of the overall market. However, strict regulatory requirements and long approval time for Gamma Knife systems will restrain the market growth in coming years. High cost of implementation and shortage of skilled manpower will also inhibit the growth of the global Gamma Knife market. The market has a huge opportunity to grow with the increasing usage of stereotactic radiation therapy.
Usage of Gamma Knife Technology for Treatment of Brain Tumours is Significantly High
On the basis of application, the global Gamma Knife market has been segmented into brain tumours, brain metastases, arteriovenous malformations, trigeminal neuralgia, and others. The application of Gamma Knife technology for treating brain tumours, brain metastases, and trigeminal neuralgia is significantly high. In fact, Gamma Knife surgery is regarded as one of the most advanced means to treat brain tumours.
Asia to Dominate the Global Gamma Knife Market in Coming Years
The global Gamma Knife market has been segmented into five key regions: Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia, and Rest of the World. Growing prevalence of cancer in North America has led to the surging demand for Gamma Knife Technology from the region. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), around 2.8 mn cancer cases were reported in the year 2000 in the U.S. alone. In Europe, the growth of the Gamma Knife market can be attributed to the various awareness initiatives taken by government associations such as the European Head and Neck Society (EHNS) and the Women against Lung Cancer in Europe (WALCE).
