The market is segmented into Single-room and Multi-room by room type.

Proton beam therapy is a type of particle therapy that uses photon ionizing radiation for irradiation of diseases tissues. It is the most advanced form of radiation therapy enhanced with precise dose sculpting capability. It is relatively a niche radiation therapy with minimal radiation exposure, successfully eradicating potential side-effects of other forms of conventional radiation therapies. The proton therapy systems market by technology has been segmented into pencil beam scanning systems, uniform scanning systems and passive scattering systems. Pencil beam scanning is the most precise method of proton beam delivery has the highest dosimetric advantage.

Proton therapy has garnered immense popularity and has become mainstream treatment modality in cancer treatment worldwide due to its precise and non-invasive nature. The growth of the industry is primarily attributed to rising in the prevalence of cancer, the growth of geriatric population, higher tobacco consumption, favourable reimbursement policies and precise delivery capability. However, major industry restraints include high costs involved, stringent regulations and capacity gap.
