Proton therapy involves radiation devices having accelerated protons as a source of radiation. Proton therapy is used to kill all the viable cancer cells. In proton therapy particle accelerators are used to target the tumor with a beam of protons. The protons are charged particles that interfere with the DNA of the cells thus damaging them leading to cell death. Proton therapy devices are costly space consuming equipment that comprises accelerator, electro-magnets, gantry, nozzle and patient room.
In this report Persistence Market Research has categorized proton therapy devices into two types, namely single room center and multi room center. The single room center includes a proton therapy device equipped with only a single patient room whereas in case of multi room center a single proton therapy device is equipped with multiple patient rooms so that two or more patients can be simultaneously treated. The global proton therapy market has been segmented on the basis of set up type, indications and regions.
The global proton therapy market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 15.2% during the forecast period in terms of value. The global proton therapy market is estimated to be valued at nearly US$ 1,100 Mn in 2017 and is expected to reach nearly US$ 3,000 Mn by the end of 2024.

Resources and space required for setting up a proton therapy center is huge, and this is acting as a major restraint in the global proton therapy market
Proton beam therapy devices are very large in size, and hence require a large space with dedicated area. The setup cost is exclusive of the device cost, which further adds to the total costing of the project. Hence allotting a large area for the device setup in the very close vicinity of a hospital becomes difficult to manage. This restraint is expected to hinder the sales growth of the global proton therapy market over the forecast period.
The Proton Therapy Market is segmented as follows:
