Radioligand Therapy Market Report Analysis

Radioligand therapeutics, also known as radiopharmaceuticals, which show antitumor effects, has seen rapid development over the past decade. Although some therapies are already approved for human use, many more are in the clinical trial and will enter clinical practice in the next 2-7 years, potentially introducing new therapeutic choices for patients. Despite this innovation, several challenges remain, including supply chain, logistics, regulatory issues, and education and training. The current market for radioligand therapy is majorly dominated by manufacturers such as Novartis AG, Pfizer Inc, Johnson Johnson Services, Inc, Telix Pharmaceuticals, Lantheus Holdings Inc., (Progenics Pharmaceuticals), Molecular Partners AG, Clovis Oncology Inc., Fusion Pharma, Point Biopharma, Precirix, ITM Isotope Technologies Munich SE, Curium Pharma, and RadioMedix. The global radioligand therapy market was valued at $9,754.9 million in 2020 and is expected to reach $16,658.4 million by 2031, witnessing a CAGR of 4.67% during the forecast period 2021-2031.

 COVID-19 Impact on Global Radioligand Therapy Market

The global spread of COVID-19, caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, has resulted in a continuing pandemic threat to global health. Nuclear medicine techniques can be used for functional imaging of pathophysiological processes at the cellular level and for treatment approaches based on targeted delivery of therapeutic radionuclides. Ongoing development of radiolabeling methods has significantly improved the accessibility of radiopharmaceutical products for targeted radionuclide therapy, but their use for biosafety threats such as SARS-CoV-2 is restricted by the contagious nature of these agents.

Moreover, radioligand therapies rely on complex supply chains and advanced logistics. The lockdowns imposed by most countries and the closure of borders have generated shortages of radionuclides and other essential raw material supplies in many countries
