In the field of cancer treatment, Japan was second among the world’s countries to offer proton therapy. However, the access to proton therapy is limited for a vast population, owing to a low number of proton therapy centers. Hence, a large number of research institutions and hospitals have started investing in proton therapy to make it more accessible to the colossal pool of cancer patients.

According to the “Japan Proton Therapy Outlook 2020” report by RNCOS, by 2020, there will be 13 operational proton therapy centers in Japan. Consequently, the market will attain revenue of around US$ 150 Million by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 13% during the forecast period of 2015-2020. The report also provides an insight into the cancer demographics of Japan and the various possible reasons for an increasing incidence of cancer patients in the country.

Based on a complex correlation-regression model accounting population demographics, disease statistics, macro & micro economic indicators of the country, and more, the report provides an account of the potential proton therapy market in Japan. The report also includes the current and future demands for the number of proton therapy centers in the country. Furthermore, analysis of the current and upcoming proton therapy centers, along with an estimation of the shortage of proton centers in the current and future scenario is also provided, which is intended to help players extract benefits from the largely untapped but lucrative proton therapy market.

The report next provides an insight into the drivers, challenges, opportunities and market trends which can have a major influence in shaping the said growing market. On the competitive front, the report covers the current stand of the market and its probable transformation by 2020. There is also a ‘strengths and weaknesses’ analysis of equipment vendors along with their business overviews, products & services, and existing & planned installations in Japan till 2020, thus making the report a must read for consultants and companies planning to enter the market.
