Market Drivers:

The worldwide market has been experiencing exponential growth, thanks to the extensive product pipeline and the supportive government initiatives for enhancing access to nuclear medicine. At present, 177Lu-PNT2002, omburtamab, betalutin, PNT2003, and yttrium-90 microspheres are a few of the products that are undergoing clinical trials. The nuclear medicine industry has been moderately affected by SARS-CoV-2. The operation and use of reactors have been classified as critical services, as a result of which, nuclear reactors continued to note high demand despite the SARS-CoV-2 lockdown. To illustrate, under Section 71 of the Labour Act 66 in South Africa, the SAFARI-1 reactor continued being in operation during the lockdown post-March 2020.

The favorable reimbursement scenario with respect to radiopharmaceuticals in various countries, especially the United States will favor the worldwide market. In 2020, USD 10 add-on payment was offered by the Center for Medical Services (CMS) for Tc-99m sourced from non-highly enriched uranium for hospital outpatient service. There was additional payment for advanced imaging procedures. These initiatives resulted in higher patient access to diagnostic nuclear medicines for life-threatening diseases.

Surging innovations in diagnosis as well as treatment of various diseases, and the rise in approvals of nuclear-medicine-based devices for addressing several treatment needs will benefit the worldwide market. To cite a reference, in September 2021, GE Healthcare introduced novel scanner that had an advanced automated workflow feature, which provides an exceptional image of cardiac anatomy as well as pathology to assist physicians in determining the right treatment for the patient.

Market Restraints:

Radiopharmaceuticals have to deal with extra scrutiny and are subject to certain approval and regulatory pathways. In a few cases, toxicology testing can give rise to a substantial financial burden for the testers/investigators. Besides, reimbursement hurdles for manufacturers and the significant capital investments required could restrain the market growth in subsequent years.

However, the escalating use of radiopharmaceuticals in a number of neurologic applications could present lucrative opportunities to the manufacturers in the nuclear medicine market.

COVID 19 Analysis

The COVID-19 outbreak’s significant impact has led to numerous severe repercussions on people’s health status across the world. The aftermath is linked with the significant social and economic burden on people worldwide. While the major policymakers are implementing new frameworks and industries are adopting advanced models of expansion to maintain their relevance, people are facing a series of mental trauma.

Around the world, the rising cases have spurred mental, and economic issues, especially among the elderly. Additionally, the global populace has been dealing with challenges owing to loss of livelihoods and is opting for family care to address the repercussions. The focus is largely on the treatment of COVID-19 and the development of a vaccine, which steers attention away from other markets. These factors will most likely be unfavorable for the nuclear medicine market in the years to come.
